Summary:
Academic advising is an important and time-consuming task and different tools and techniques can be used to make it an effective and efficient process. This thesis describes the design and development of a Web-based advising system that supplements the conventional advising process. The goals of the system include: to minimize repetitive tasks performed by advisors, to encourage students to adopt a proactive attitude towards advising, to make advising-related information available to remote students in a single place, in electronic format, and to minimize inconsistencies in the advising process. The system supports three different types of users (students, advisors, and secretaries). This thesis proposes a new Web-based advising system model. It also presents its architecture and an implementation of a prototype. Web-based advising system introduces a new approach towards advising over the Internet. Lessons learned from various experiments of the prototype are discussed in this thesis.
