5.4 USER’S MANUAL
project was centered on web enabled visual basic online tutorial. The current process
of teaching and learning is being done manually and due to this procedure the
learning process is slow and not encouraging. A design was taken to
computerized the manual process in order to check this problem. The problems
were identified after series of interviews and examination of documents after
which analysis was made and a computerized procedure recommended. This project
will also suggest how to successfully implement the computerized procedure and
to overcome the obstacle that would hinder the successful implementation of the
system. The new system was designed using Hypertext markup language and
features for developing online based applications.
basic (VB) is the third generation event-driven programming language and
integrated development environment (IDE) from Microsoft for its programming
model. Visual basic is also considered as a relative easy to learn and use
programming language, because of its graphic development features and basic
heritage. Visual basic was derived from BASIC and enables the rapid application
development (RAD) of graphical user interface (GUI) applications access to
database using Data Access objects, Data objects, or active data objects and
creation of active X controls and objects.
every little effort, the programmer can design a screen that holds standard
windows elements such as command buttons, check boxes, option buttons, text
boxes and list boxes. Each of these windows objects operators as expected,
producing a “standard” windows user interface.
basic is easy to learn, which makes it an excellent tool for understanding
elementary programming concepts. In addition, it has evolved into such a
powerful and popular product that skilled visual basic programmers are in demand
in the job market.
purpose of this project topic on design and implementation of a web enabled
visual basic tutorial is to present to student with a big picture on visual
basic online teaching or tutorial so that students of Federal Polytechnic Nekede
can be able to go the website and learn the application of VB and its
importance to human existence. It enables the students to learn at their own
this chapter, we begin with a discussion of how the design of website on visual
basic tutorial has traditionally been driven by the role they play and the
services they provide. The problem of designing this website in order to
provide services like learning and teaching are also considered. The general
discussion of the designation of website on visual basic tutorial and the
essential function they provide must be presented in this project.
basic enables an individual to program easily. It is an object oriented
programming language. It has tool bars, properties and other main menu that
helps to create a beautiful project outlook.
is an example of the language: code snippet that displays a message box “hello
world” as the window forms load.
sub form load ()
a simple message box that will say “Hello world”
OF THE STUDY
Imo state of Nigeria Edict No 16b of 1978 established the Federal Polytechnic
Nekede, Owerri twenty nine years ago. It took off at its temporary site at the
premises if the government Technical College (GTC) Owerri in the same year
following the take over of the institution by Federal Government with effect
from First January 1993, the name of the institution was again changed to the
Federal Polytechnic Nekede, Owerri. As regulated by the federal Polytechnic Act
(Cap 139) of 1979. the functions are to provide full time or part time courses
of institution and training to arrange conferences, seminar and study groups
relative to the various fields of learning and to perform such functions as in
the opinion of the governing council, that they may serve to promote the
objectives for which it was established, it adopted the motto “knowledge and
skill for service” right from its inception in 1978.
polytechnic has recorded such achievement as in academic programmes; it started
with nine programmes houses in three schools with all commenced at the National
Diploma level. Today there are 25 programmes distributed in the five schools.
All the programmes with the exception of one being mass communication have been
accredited up to the Higher National Diploma.
addition, they also offer evening programmes courses and weekend programmes
other words, this project case study will be centered on school of engineering,
computer science precisely.
OF THE PROBLEM
an institution like this, Federal Polytechnic Nekede, Owerri, the method of
admission is very alarming for instance, in a department like electrical
Electronics Engineering, the number of intake of ND student are 500, the HND
are almost 500 too, then their evening counterpart both ND and HND respectively
are close to 1000, same applicable to weekend programme.
a situation like this, you find out that learning generally poses a big
problem. This I turn forms constraints that will slow down the peace of growing
versatile in area of academic.
in my course of research, I found out that there are other departments who
ought to do the course, for instance Electrical Electronics Engineering,
Statistics department, Physics department etc. but owing to the constraints
involved, I therefore drew out some problems that could be the course
the learning of visual basic requires practical, the students are limited from
knowing how the program works because of some faulty computers in the lab.
Sometimes, the students are made to stay 10 people each on one system, you know
what that means, and concentration will be lost.
as I said earlier, over population can hinder a student from learning. This is
because, the atmosphere will be stuffy owing to the heat exerted from the
bodies or skin of students. The environment will be unconductive and sometimes
seats are occupied and others.
OF THE STUDY
purpose or aim of the study is to provide a website on visual basic online
teaching where the students of federal polytechnic Nekede, will go and learn,
make research, and gather facts on any information they want on VB. This will
help to improve student’s attitude and make them to become good programmers
despite their area of discipline in the institution.
point is also to enable student become versatile in all area of academic work.
Since we are in the computer age, information and communication technology has
cropped in every nook and cranny of this world. Even the illiterate ones have
realized the applications of computers.
visual basic in a big institution like this makes the students to understand
all about object-oriented language. You can imagine students from the
department of mass communication, political science, public administration etc
writing a program on VB. This generally means that this website will enable the
student to learn at ease, in a more conducive atmosphere without any
obstruction or disturbance. As a matter of fact, the project is going to be
hosted on the internet to allow students to browse through and thus enhance
their intellectual capabilities and learn beyond the traditional classroom
OF THE STUDY
scope of this study will be strictly on school of engineering. COMPUTER SCIENCE
precisely. Though schools ca still have access to the teaching but in order to
reduce the compellability of the science. This will be done to enable the
students to be fully baked and grinded on this wonderful area of learning. So
that when they enter the labour market, they will be expert on the field.
computer students from ND to HND are free to go to the internet and browse,
make research, practice what they have learnt inside the classroom teaching and
still expanciate their knowledge on programming concept. This in turn will
generally increase their skills, knowledge, vision and intelligence on the
aspect of VB language.
the purpose of this project is to design a website on visual basic tutorial,
students will therefore benefit from this study as it serves so many goals or
site will provide to the students, the preliminary concept of programming and
will enable students to design a project on their own like employee payroll of
a company and writing codes.
will make the students to be an expert in visual basic program and become a
demand in the job market.
learning of VB via the online lecture can enable one become a tutor, a
consultant in firms like banks, schools because with the employment of a VB
programmer, complex work is now lessen in the organization.
the knowledge of visual basic, the student can program visual basic, Net, C+,
and Pascal. C++ and other promising programming languages.
knowledge of VB can make an individual to be a software developer.
1.7 LIMITATION OF THE STUDY
a big project like this, so many limitations was encountered. Financial problem
was a very big hitch to this project in the sense that some foreign textbooks
needed to properly build this project was not bought.
limitation was the limited time embarked to carry out the research work as the
research was combined with welfare and other academic work which was tedious.
researcher was limited to some vital information in the library due to some
security reasons from the librarian. The time spent in understanding the vast
function of visual basic and the complexity of the program constituted a lot of
worries during program development. Visual basic is too vast and very complex
in designing but very interesting in analyzing the applications and functions.
the HTML program gave me a big problem and concern as it is very difficult to
code, making it look much complex.
