Description

The widespread development of technology and the need for a good course management method in educational institutions have led to development of various online course management systems. Universities have adopted a variety of different systems that fulfill their requirements in the most efficient way possible at the time the systems are adopted. However, regardless of the various services provided, these systems still lack various functionalities that result in unmet system course management requirements. The objective of this project is to research various aspects of a course management system, identify one or more ways to improve the features of the system, and then (as practical) design and implement one or more of the improvements. Since Minnesota State University, Mankato is currently using Desire2Learn as a course management tool; this research will be based on this specific course management tool. During this process, we will be applying Software Engineering principles for software development. Software engineering principles include requirement engineering (requirement elicitation, requirement analysis negotiation, requirement validation and requirement management), design, coding, implementation and testing
