Abstract

The goal of the project is to create a simple way for professors and students to access all the information needed throughout the school year, such as grades, classes, homework, and school news. The approach focuses on simplicity for users by providing a uniform look for every page and placing the navigation in an easily accessible position. The class management website features a signup, login, and logout system that gives a secure way to access course information. It also allows for professors to input information into the system and to update students’ classes, grades, and homework via a professor-only page to ensure that students cannot change the information. The project was completed using PHP, CSS, HTML and MySQL.
