ICWL 2005, the 4th foreign convention on Web-Based studying, was once held in Hong Kong, China from July 31 to August three, 2005, as a endured - tempttoaddressmanyoftheabove-mentionedissues.Followingthegreatsuccess of ICWL 2002 (Hong Kong, China), ICWL 2003 (Australia), and ICWL 2004 (China), ICWL 2005 geared toward featuring progresson the technical, pedagogical, in addition to administration problems with Web-based studying. The convention featured a accomplished application, together with a couple of tutorials, keynote talks, a chief song containing usual in addition to brief paper displays, and an program music.

Example text

When a client’s request is sent to the server, the server will query on the OODB (Object Oriented Database) based on the request and process the query result. Once the process is finished, the result is sent back to the client in the form of XML response. The client will then parse the XML response into Flash recognizable data and render the data with a designated Flash template. OODB is chosen as the server database due to its good support in creation and management of hierarchical objects over RDB (Relational Database).

Pradhan User Interface Analysis The screenshot in Figure 4 is an example of a look and feel of the system; the example represents an input screen during selecting of lab preferences for a subject by students. They are able to select their preferences given all the attributes of a particular lab. The drop down box has a list of relevant reasons as to why a student may not be able to attend a particular lab. 7 System Architecture and Implementation This section attempts to briefly explain the inner workings of ALIAS and how they are glued together.

The redundancies and discrepancies caused by the lab system can spill over to a domino effect within the staff in the department. This amounts to avoidable human errors or loss of time due to menial administrative tasks. In meeting the demands of a viable solution to the problem at hand, a tool in web-based learning has been proposed. The tool, ALIAS, solves most, if not all, problems related to the administration of lab allocation. It also provides functions that cannot be achieved manually, such as the multiple lab allocation strategies.
