Web and Mobile Newsletter App with Forum for School Publication
Table of Contents
Academic institutions adopt the use of technology to automate different activities and operations in schools. School services and transactions are now powered by computerized systems and applications which make it more efficient and convenient for both the school’s management and its stakeholders.
The researchers conducted the study to assess one role of the schools which is to publish a school paper that contains and reflects important events that happened in school within the school year. Most of the schools use the conventional method of crafting school publications, in which writers are required to personally conduct meetings and manually collect and write the contents of the publication. The researchers thought that this method is ineffective and inefficient.
As a response, the researchers developed a solution that uses technology. The researchers developed a capstone project entitled, “Web and Mobile Newsletter App with Forum for School Publication”. The said project will allow electronic crafting and publishing of school publications. The project will allow schools to save time and effort as well as the cost of producing hard copies of the school publication.
The implementation of the project will significantly benefit the intended users. The Newsletter application will let the members of the school’s publication do their meetings and sharing of ideas electronically. The school publication will also be available online which is highly accessible and available for students. The project will resolve all the difficulties and problems encountered in the conventional way of crafting school publications.
The researchers highly recommend the implementation of the system for it will ease up the publishing of school papers that is highly accessible by the students.
The capstone project, “Web and Mobile Newsletter App with Forum for School Publication,” is an online platform for creating and publishing school publications. The web and mobile-based newsletter app with a forum will allow members of the school publication to share ideas about the scope of the publication’s contents, as well as allow students to access the publication electronically.
Usually, school publications let the student members write the material of the publication with the guidance of the school publication adviser. The staffs of the school publication usually meet to share ideas on what content the publication should publish, which takes time for both students and advisers. After the meeting, students will begin writing the contents, which they will then hand off to the adviser for proofreading which will sometimes cause delays in publishing due to physical barriers and time constraints. Publishing of the school publication also is done via hardcopy which is costly and students cannot access it anytime they want.
To address the concerns mentioned above, the researchers of the study proposed a web and mobile-based newsletter app with a forum for a school publication. All activities related to making and publishing the school publication will be automated using the application. The app will let the staffs do their meeting and sharing of ideas electronically. The school publication will also be available online which is highly accessible and available for students. The application will eliminate problems encountered conventionally and will bring convenience to the parties involved.
Objectives of the Study
General Objective– The main purpose of the project is to design and develop a web and mobile-based newsletter app for school publications that will automate all the processes required in the creation and publishing.
The following are the specific objectives of the project:
- To develop a newsletter app that will ease up producing the school publication.
- To develop a platform that will electronically connect the staff of the school publication.
- The application will serve as a platform where school publications are highly accessible and reliable.
- The application will have a user-friendly interface for students to easily use it.
- The application is accurate, reliable, and convenient to use.
Scope of the Study
The researchers will develop a web and mobile-based newsletter app that allows an automated process of publishing school papers. The application will have a forum, a feature that allows the members of the school publication to electronically conduct meetings and share ideas about the scope and contents of the school publication. The researchers will have a sample size of school publication members and staff as respondents.
Significance of the Study
The following groups or individuals will benefit from the project:
Student Members. The application will help them easily gather ideas from other members of the publication. The app will lessen the time and effort they will exert in writing the contents of the publication.
Advisers. The application will help them easily conduct meetings and also proofread the works of the students.
Students. They can easily access the school publication by using the application; they would not need to get a hard copy.
Researchers. The success of the study will contribute to their knowledge and skills as programmers.
Future Researchers. The study can serve as their basis if they want to conduct their study about the project.
The project was conducted to assess the methods on how members of school publications craft and produce school papers. The researchers have found out that there is a need for improvement in the current method for members who face difficulties and problems in completing the school publication. As a response, the researchers developed a Web and Mobile Newsletter App with Forum for School Publication. The application is designed to automate the process and transactions between members of the school publication. The result of the study showed that the developed application provided the needs and requirements of the respondents and intended user.
Thus, the researchers concluded that the developed application is an effective tool to be used by school publications members. The developed application will allow them to meet online for planning and brainstorming of contents. The app will allow them to electronically craft their contents and publish the school paper. The application will significantly benefit the intended users.
The result of the study prompted the researchers to recommend the implementation of the system. The researchers strongly suggest the use of the system for it will allow an automated process of crafting and producing school papers. The researchers also suggest that the intended users should learn the features and how the system works for them to correctly utilize them.
The researchers specifically recommend the following:
- The researchers recommend that academic institutions should adopt the use of the application to improve the productivity of their school publications.
- School publication members should download and install the application for easy and fast connectivity between members.
- The application is highly recommended for it will enable crafting and publishing of school papers easy, fast and convenient.
