Project title: Platform to notify students on their mobile phones of events taking place at UoM and allow submission of assignments.
Cohort: CSE or IS
No. of students: 2
Project objectives: The aim of this project is to notify students of events at the University, e.g. schedule for their class test, deadline for their assignment, their presentation schedule, forthcoming seminars of interest to them and parties, by sending a message to their mobile phone. However, students must be allowed to choose at anytime not to receive notifications from the system without turning off their mobile phones.
Furthermore, a web interface must be provided to the database to allow the administrator and authorised users, e.g. Lecturers, to post information about events. A platform must also be provided to allow students to submit their assignment to their respective Lecturer.In case the deadline is over, the system must prevent the submission.
Required skills: This project requires very good programming skills.
Required software: Java, J2ME and Web and database technologies.
