|Abstract: ||The increasing number of students in search of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) knowledge has overwhelmed the computer resources available in the Faculty of Computing and Information Technology (FCIT). In the academic year 2004/2005 – 2005/2006 the number of undergraduate students increased by 80% from 1094 to 1968, making a student-computer ratio of approximately 7:1. Consequently, this has led to inappropriate sharing of the few available computers as students struggle to access these facilities.
The proposed Computer Laboratory Time Management System was developed using C#. Net for the graphical user interfaces and MS SQL Server 2005 for the database. The CLTMS provides a centralized management for workstations, which are remotely managed by the system administrator. It enables suitable time allocation to students based on demand for practical activities by allowing only authorized users with valid username and password to share the few available computer facilities.
The benefits that CLTMS provides include; limiting hours when a student can/cannot logon a computer, limiting how long an eligible student can use a computer by allocating them specific time on weekly basis, automatically closing a student's session when the time is out, recording user statistics like used and remaining hours, remote computer management by the system administrator, authentication and providing security options to protect time settings from unauthorized access.|
