Abstract

Teaching individuals how to learn is the challenge faced by the nation as a whole as we negotiate the difficult, momentous transition from the Industrial Age to the Knowledge Age. Today we must understand systems in diverse contexts, and collaborate locally and around the globe using new tools like the Internet. Many educators have recognized the potential of using the Internet for instruction. Although many Internet technologies such as e-mail, listservs, ftp and conferencing can be used to assist teaching, the World Wide Web remains the most popular medium. It provides a user-friendly front end and easy access to text, graphics, audio and video materials that may be used in a common and consistent format. One of the most powerful elements of using the Web for teaching is the ability to engage learners in an interactive format. Most education Web sites provide basic course information such as syllabus, schedule, announcements and reading lists. In Malaysia, the function of the education institution must be broadening to accommodate the big challenge of the technology used in the education milieu. For this reason, Institut Bahasa Melayu Malaysia, one of the Teacher Training Colleges, proposed a Web-Based Short Courses System that will handles online short courses where teachers can access them anywhere and anytime. This study is proposed to develop a web-based short course to handle Kursus Kemahiran Tatabahasa Bahasa Melayu for Malay language teachers to enhance their skill. This course is developed based on module that is used in a traditional classroom. Therefore the aim of the study is to develop a web-based database system to make learning more accessible, interactive, meaningful, student-centered, support collaboration and flexible. The Database Design Methodology and Web Development Methodology are used to build the system. Rapid Prototyping Methodology technique is used to develop a prototype. The MySQL Database, PHP, JavaScript and Apache web server are used to implement the system. The system model is a reference model to the institution's web-based short courses system. During the development of the system, some problems and limitations were discovered and discussed. Finally some recommendations are made to overcome the limitations for the future enhancement and future work of this project.
