COMPUTERIZED HOSTEL ALLOCATION SYSTEM (A CASE STUDY OF COLLEGE OF EDUCATION EKIADOLOR-BENIN). A RESEARCH PROJECT MATERIAL ON COMPUTER SCIENCE
Today’s modern computers no doubt occupy a central and strategic position in any form of education given to man at any level.
An introduction to computerization of hostel allocation is aimed at introducing the management of college of education Ekiadolor and other educational institute with the need to computation of hostel allocation rather that the moribund (past/ancient) methods of data collation and allocation of accommodation.
This project work indicate and gives a brief description of problems encountered using the manual approach of data collation. This study is aimed at equipping the management of the college that the computer as an electronic device can help resolve the problem of mis-allocation of hostel accommodation and also to convince the college of management that with the aid of the computer, the speed, efficiency and accuracy of hostel allocation will reduce the problem of double allocation will reduce the problem of double allocation and counting.
A dbase iv program was used to buttress the fact that computation stands the fastest and easiest mode of data collation.
I hereby recommend this work to be read and used not only by educators but for all managerial bodies that demands adequacy of data collation.
Finally, it is of great delight to contribute and also write preface to this volume because I believe that it is a worthwhile effort to introduce the management of the college of education to the fundamental nature of scientific approach to problem solving.
- BACKGROUND OF STUDY
Computer as an indispensable tool in the total life of human endeavor has gained precedence in the world especially in the development growth of the Nigeria society. Computers are supper machines that convert your physical/mental effort into a mere easy life. The use of computer in our everyday life needs not to be over emphasized. This is because of the gradual increase in human population and complexity of life which has equally brought about more volumes of data being generated every day.
The gradual increase in human population has equally affected the education sector as higher institutions in the country today are currently faced with the problem of how to allocate hostels/halls of residence to students.
