E-Learning System Using PHP



Hello Guys Welcome to Coding Gurus Online Portal ...!

PHP is a buzzword among most of the web developers today. The assurance of security by PHP and it's ability to prevent the overloading on servers make it as a prominent language used today. Handling a PHP project is one of the best options for a computer science student if he/she has a good confidence over the subject. Also, carrying out the project of E-learning is going to 'fetch' some more value in your resume.
However this project involves coding, design and DBMS just like any other major web-based project. Here are a few guiding steps and documentation, to help you succesfully complete all the tasks.
All the best. Hope you rock in right path!



Abstract

E-learning is another form of distance learning where education and training courses are delivered using computer technology. Typically, this means that courses are delivered either via the Internet, or on computer networks (linked computers) available solely between server and client . With the increased availability of PCs and Internet access, e-learning is becoming more and more popular. E-Learning is a web application using JSP or PHP that exclusively requires a proper DB. This online application enables the end users to register online, select the subject, read the course and appear for the exam online. The results of exam are also declared just after taking the test.The candidate should take tests in a particular sequence and also he can attempt the next test only if he has completed the previous papers. The correct answers for the questions are displayed after the exam. The date of the registration, date of exam, test results etc. are stored in the database. Learning sources are also presented in the format of pdf,ppt, videos, etc.

   4. Reduced paper work
   5. Computer evaluated tests

MODULE DESCRIPTION: Number of Modules
After careful analysis the system has been identified to have the following modules:
1. Registration Module
2. Participant Module
3. Guide Module
4. Online Exam

1.Registration Module:
This module consists of registering the participant details inorder to login.The existing parcipant can directly login along with userid and password to view the course details.If the user is a new participant, they should register their details with user id and password.The details of participant will be maintained by the database.
