BTEC HND Web Applications Development : Scenario

Lingo Academy provides people with short time courses in IT. You are required to create a simple web application which we will call ‘Lingo Management System’ for the purpose of maintaining student’s details and monitoring their academic progress. The information system has an admin who has full administrative rights to register, remove, update and maintain the students’ details and to register and update courses in the system. Each course at Lingo Academy has only one teacher who has the rights to insert and update the grades directly in the system only for his students (less than 50 Fail, between 50 and 60 Pass, between 60 and 70 Merit, above 70 Distinction). The student should be able to login to the system and check his progress. To implement the site, you must use HTML5, CSS and JavaScript for the client- side coding. PHP must be used for the server side coding. The site must run from a local web server. The backend will be built with MySQL Server database.

Functional Specification

1.Accounts Creation

  • Create HTML forms as needed to create accounts for the users of the system and to store and maintain the required data.
  • Account and other data (e.g. courses) details are to be stored in your MySQL database.
  • The system must prevent duplicate usernames being chosen (Do not use the email address as a username).

2. Forms Validation

It is important that you validate the forms on client side using html5 and JavaScript code, in addition to the validation using server side code (i.e. PHP) and you should display proper error messages as needed.

3. Authentication

Any available login form on your website should be usable by the all the user types of the system, however they should be allowed to access only what is related to their roles.

Department of Information Technology Page 2 of 10

4. Search

The admin and the teacher should be able to search available students. However, the teacher should only be allowed to find and view his own students. Also, all users of the system should be allowed to search and find courses available in the system.

5. Contact

Your website must provide users with a contacting form that uses html5, JavaScript and PHP. The form should send the message directly to the admin or the teacher depending on the user selection. It should as well keep a copy of the email inside the MYSQL db.

6. Other issues

Your website should look simple and nice and must include minimum 5 different pages including home, courses, about, contact us (public pages) and accounts management (private pages). All public pages must have a header and footer with relevant logo, navigation links menu, login form, images and/or videos.

Task 1

In the reference to the above scenario:

  • 1.1Critically evaluate the functions and advantages of web applications. [P1.1].
  • 1.2Critically compare different types of server-side and client-side scripting languages. [P1.2, M1].
  • 1.3Examine web security concerns and make recommendations for security improvements for your web application. [P1.3].
  • To achieve M1; Student has to define clearly the difference between the client side and server side languages. In addition, student has to identify and define multiple server and client side languages and to list main differences between them.

Task 2

This task focuses in the design of the web application and associated database. Within this context and in the reference to the above scenario:

  • 2.1Design a web application to meet the given requirements in the scenario above. Use all relevant techniques such as wire-framing, storyboarding and sitemap. Your website shall have all the relevant pages for full implementation of the above scenario help including a sitemap. [P2.1, M2]
  • 2.2Demonstrate a client-server architecture suitable for your web application. [P2.2, D1]
  • 2.3Design a database system for use in your web application. [P2.3, D2]
  • 2.4Evaluate alternative designs and solutions to meet a given requirement. [P2.4]
  • To achieve M2; Student has to introduce proper and consistent wire-frames and storyboards including header, footer, main content sections with logo, navigation links menu, login form,crumb-bread, relevant images and videos … etc.
  • To achieve D; Student has to illustrate proper client-server architecture that suits his system and has to demonstrate the role of each component and how they communicate together.
  • To achieve D; Student has to create a multiple tables database, demonstrate the relations between them and justify his design.

Task 3

This task aims to establish a good familiarity with the implementation of the web application using proper client-server technologies connected to a relational database using html, CSS, JavaScript, PHP and MySQL DB. To this end you have to:

  • 3.1Implement the proposed wireframe and storyboards introduced in task 2 using mark-up and scripting languages as appropriate: HTML for web pages, CSS for presentation styles, JavaScript for client side script [P3.1].
  • 3.2Implement web-enabled database management system to store, retrieve and manipulate data in the web application as specified in the scenario above using PHP and SQL queries. [P3.2, D3]
  • 3.3Identify and implement opportunities for error handling and reporting. [P3.3]
  • To achieve D3; Student has to implement a proper functional system that reflects creativity in developing the proposed client-server architecture introduced in Task 2.

Task 4

  • 4.1Review and test your web application on front end and back end levels. [P4.1]
  • 4.2analyse actual test results against expected results to identify discrepancies (Use verification table). [P4.2]
  • 4.3Critically evaluate independent feedback on a developed web application and make recommendations for improvements [P4.3, M3]
  • 4.4Create user documentation for a developed web application. [P4.4, D3]
  • To achieve M3; Student has to list the independent feedback and demonstrates how they will deal with it in proper way.
  • To achieve D3; Student has to provide proper documentation for the technical side in a way that allows other developers realise how to fix and update the code of the system. Also student has to demonstrate clearly how the actual user of the system will be able to use it. The user guide has to include clear instructions and relevant screen shots.

Assessment Methods

  • This is an individual coursework.
  • There are TWO components to this assignment.

1.Your system will be assessed at a laboratory demonstration/viva where the complete system (software or hardware) you produced will be demonstrated and you will be asked to answer related questions. For this, you will need to prepare a power point presentation or similar

presentation package of your choice to aid your oral presentation. The presentation will last no more than 10-15 minutes. You will be marked on content, presentation style and clarity of delivery. This is important and you should treat it as an examination.

2.You will need to produce a short report addressing all the questions in each learning outcome. You must include your power point slides in this report. There is no written examination for this unit.

BTEC HND Web Applications Development: Additional Specs, Hints & Good Programming Practices

  • The marking scheme for this coursework will assign marks for Functionality, Quality of Code, Program Design, Style, Documentation and Working Binaries. Style and Documentation are crucial – you must neatly comment your code.
  • Try and break the coursework down into do-able chunks as identified by the task list. These are distinct programs in the coursework, so try and modularise your effort – for instance – first you need to set up the menu system and build functionalities of each menu item one by one. This approach will help in the testing and debugging process of your code.
  • You should aim in achieving good level of Modularity in implementing your developed Algorithm and to avoid High inter-Dependability between the implemented Functions of your Program Code.
  • DEBUGGING HINT: Compile and test your program after every change, even if it was as simple a change as adding a single line. This will allow you to find and fix errors early before you write more code. This is another reason why you have to write the skeleton program which runs first even if it does not do anything yet.
  • Your main program should have the following heading shown below. You must customise it to your particular details.

/************************************************************************************* About: This program is written as part of the fulfilment for the ‘put your Unitname’ Course – HND in BTEC HND Web Applications Development: EEE/CSD at Icon College, London.

  • Date : Put date here
  • By : Put your name here. Student ID: Put your student ID Here
  • Each function must have its own comment heading which describes exactly what the code
  • does as shown below as an example./************************************************************************************* About: This program takes your date of birth as an input and returns your age.


In addition to the above, follow good programming practices. Below are some of the common good practices generally accepted as industry standard and followed by those in industry. You will get more marks for following good programming practices. Some examples are given below.

BTEC HND Web Applications Development

  • oDo not start with underscore (used for technical programming). e.g. _grades (this is bad practice)
  • o Write single word variables in all lower case , e.g. int grades, roots;
  • oSpace is not allowed in identifiers, e.g. ‘student grades’ is wrong! write this as studenGrades or student_grades. Note the use of capitalisation or the underscore.
  • oStart function names with capital letters. e.g. AverageGrades(). Spaces are not allowed in function names. ‘Average Grades()’ is wrong. Use AverageGrades() or Average_grades().
  • Emphasis and care must be taken in producing good descriptive COMMENTS in the Program Code, following a ‘tidy’ indentation of the Program Code, and using descriptive names for the Functions and Variables implemented in the Program Code.
  • Make a habit of using Meaningful identifier and Function Names to make your code easier for others to understand. Think about it, what does “g” mean? Is it grades, garbage, grave, etc. Thus do not use cryptic identifier names, e.g. Use ‘grades’ to refer to student grades rather than ‘g’. Similarly, use sensible function names. If you want to write a function that assigns student’s grades, then call it StudentGrades(). Do not use your names or names of your pets or any name that does not describe what the function does, but at the same time do not use more than 3 words, i.e. do not use a sentence to name a function. e.g. ThisIsMyAverageFunction() while syntactically correct is not good programming practice.
  • You are encouraged to use efficient Programming skills in implementing the designed Algorithm, e.g. for avoiding unnecessary Variables Declarations etc., and in taking into consideration the Computational Costs in Hardware of your written Program Code, e.g. avoid unnecessary Repetition Statements etc.
  • Remember PHP & JavaScript are case sensitive so ‘Grades’ and ‘grades’ are not the same as identifier names. Thus be case and spelling consistent. Use an identifier name only once and spell it (upper and lower case) the same way within your program.

Finally give the project and your report a sensible name like E.g. Unit35_CW_ID3344.
