AO. UNIV.-PROF. MAG. DR. MARTIN WEICHBOLD, Dean of the Faculty of Cultural and Social Sciences, University of Salzburg, Austria: ”Who is sent abroad? (…) Based on analysis of current research, with its often contradictory results, Dr. Cummings-Koether’s study spans 40 years and five continents.

This project is aimed at downloading and uploading online assignments for students; with each assignment having information about the instructions, description, deadline, and submission details. The main goal of this thesis is to design and implement online assignment submission and provide an interface use for uploading test program (Nant script file) by instructors, who would be able to evaluate assignments automatically. The system provides an interface for testing assignments such that they can be plugged in by the teachers. This testing could invoke a compiler and make a test-run of the compiled code and check the result or test for plagiarism, existence of certain documents or simply check the file type (extension). The most obvious advantage offered by online assignment submission is that it offers faster transmission of assignments than using traditional way by using online system. The interface use to invoke different testing program by teachers, So Save the time and cost for teachers by enabling them to put up a fast response for students as well as increasing the quality of the feedback provided to students.

The available modes of fees payment to Makerere University through Cash Deposits, Electronic Funds Transfer and Bank Drafts have caused long queues, students missing to sit for their tests and examinations, and loss of money intended for fees while waiting to reach bank counters to make payments among others. The problem is addressed by developing a system(MUK-OFPS) that enables students and their sponsors to securely pay university fees online from wherever they are using credit and debit cards. The study focused on the development of a web based system that allows online fees payment. Students and their sponsors will use the system to pay all kinds of university fees online, and by the university accountants to verify these payments. Literature asserts that, for nearly every business, the simple act of collecting payments from consumers is actually quite complex and yet organizations want to make it easy and convenient for customers to pay, so they offer multiple choices of payment types and channels. This will reduce the lengthy queues, congestion at banks and reduce the number of students that currently miss sitting for their exams at the University.

Despite the explosion of online instruction, there few comparable studies of adaptation by higher education faculty to online instruction. The intent of this study is to better understand the complex faculty adaptation experiences that many faculty go through. Such information in turn will help institutions of higher education to understand the new roles and responsibilities they ask faculty to assume. With a better understanding of faculty perceptions of online instruction, those who provide training to faculty will be able to communicate more adequately to faculty what to expect of teaching online in relation to: changes in their roles; the time needed for course planning and course management; psychological and social support of students; appropriate teaching strategies; and the rhythms, flows and anticipated cycles for assignments. The audience for this study includes university personnel interested in establishing similar programs to support their faculty in teaching online. In addition, persons who want to establish or expand professional development programs for on-campus faculty may find this study of interest.
