ABSTRACT

Mobile devices are becoming more important in daily lives for not just making calls, but also for information gathering, personal management and entertainment. They have also gained an increasing demand in education field, for instance m-learning, mobile timetable system and many others. The objective of this paper is to present a way to bring information to students by leveraging the availability of phones (with SMS capability), especially cell phones. I review the use of mobile phones for delivering examination results via Short Messaging Service (SMS) in the faculty of science, CRUTECH, where student who have written examinations and anxious to see their results need to get their grades in a convenient and accessible way, whether in the comfort of their homes, on the road or while at work. Mobile phone seems to be an asset most individuals’ possess, and take almost everywhere with them. It is, therefore, a highly effective means of bringing information to them faster, easily and on the move. An SMS result checking system not only enables students to request for their grades, the system can also deliver the grades to their phones as soon as the grades become available. This means that they can access their grades even in the remotest locations where internet facility might be unavailable, preventing them from accessing the school’s website. This study shows the implementation of such system and considers the security issues associated. The system enforces security with the use of secret information (password), and also provides access to new and old grades.
