The project is actually the creation of a trial app for a school. The app is supposed to have an option for students and lecturers to log into personal accounts where they can do a number of things.
Students should have personal profiles and be be able to check results, track their academic progress, gain access to assignments, submit projects etc.
Lecturers should also be able to create unique profiles and be able to post Assignments for students, receive submitted assignments, Post publications (Some paid and some free)
etc. There should also be provision where relevant information can be posted as general or personalised notifications.
There should also be a forum where students or lecturers can start discussion threads, pretty much like the site "Quora"
Members should be able to post anonymously or with their identity revealed.
