e-Learning Applications Development

TTC has deployed integrated e-Learning/School Management software (iLMS) applications for several tertiary institutions globally. For example, we developed a full-fledged, web-based application for the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), to support a student body of over 100,000 and a staff of almost one thousand. Initially, NOUN did not have a dynamic web-portal system, a course management system, or a university management system. Sample screen shots from the application are shown below.

An extensive relational database management system was developed to support all aspects of the university operations, including synchronous and asynchronous course delivery. We also provided online communications procedures to support interactions between the students, lecturers, staff, and the outside world. For example, instructors can upload course, homework, and assessment materials, while students can upload the same, take tests and examinations online, initiate online course-based discussions, chat, and send emails securely in an intranet. Student tests and examinations are automatically graded online.

Since there was no prior course management portal system at NOUN, the gathering and migration of data was a significant consideration during the course of the project. Integration with eTranzact for online payment by students was also successfully achived.

The solution was deployed on the cloud, consisting of several Database servers, many web servers, a domain controller, and a file server that also serves as a failsafe or backup domain controller. Redundancies and nearly instantaneous disaster recovery was built into the system for every part of the hardware and network configuration.

In a more advanced iLMS deployment, TTC completely overhauled the iCT system at the Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile-Ife, Nigeria. The system supports more than 40,000 students, and 3,000 staff members. The institution had no prior course management system but had implemented aspects of their integrated technology functionality including registration and Hall Accommodation management. TTC’s deployments at the Organization of African Unity (OAU) include functionalities such course management, online classrooms for distance learning, online testing and examination, automatic grading, communication tools, and semester and institution management. These were integrated with the existing tools at the institution. In addition, detailed back-end solutions were successfully developed to support the various institution administration and registry tasks. Basically, the full operations of the institution have been digitized and are functioning. Disaster recovery and offline process support were a part of the solution.
