Emmanuel Adetiba, Victor O. Matthews, Victoria O. Egunjobi, Anthony T. Olajide . Development of e-SIWES Portal: A Web based Platform for Student Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES) Management. International Journal of Applied Information Systems. 3, 8 ( August 2012), 10-17. DOI=10.5120/ijais12-450577
We developed the e-SIWES portal in order to enhance the manual task of carrying out SIWES activities such as registration, dissemination of information, filling of log book for students' day-to-day activities and supervision/assessment by lecturers and industry based supervisors. The portal is web-based and allows all tasks to be carried out using the personal computer and the Internet. We digitized the SIWES logbook and assessment forms for filling by students and grading by the supervisors electronically. This will allow supervisors to be assigned immediately the students commence their industrial training and facilitate their monitoring in real-time. With the e-SIWES portal, important messages can be broadcast to all students at once and on a prompt and regular basis.
