by Rafael A. Calvo, Nicholas L. Carroll, Robert A. Ellis
International Journal of Continuing Engineering Education and Life-Long Learning (IJCEELL), Vol. 17, No. 1, 2007

Abstract: This paper discusses the design, development and use of a portal system for the administration and integration of teaching activities to improve their effectiveness and coherence. The system provides: a knowledge repository of syllabus and instructional design of courses in a university; functionality that enables staff to perform administrative activities online; a collaboration environment supporting the knowledge repository. The three types of functionality are integrated to benefit key stakeholders: students, who can benefit from a better understanding of the relationships between courses; teachers, who are able to see a reduction in their administration activities; and administrators, who can use the system as a reporting tool.
