Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET, v3 n1 Article 3 p22-26 Jan 2004
We live in the information and the microelectronic age, where technological advancements become a major determinant of our lifestyle. Such advances in technology cannot possibly be made or sustained without concurrent advancement in management systems (5). The impact of computer technology on organizations and society is increasing as new technologies evolve and existing technologies expand (5). Because of the influences of the innovations in the computer technology, people can also build their own computerized systems with easy-to-use construction tools. Management is a process by which certain goals are achieved trough the use of resources like materials, people, money, time. These resources are considered to be inputs, and the attainment of the goals is viewed as the output of the process. Database systems continue to be a key aspect of Computer Science & Engineering today. Representing knowledge within a computer is one of the central challenges of the field. Database research has focused primarily on this fundamental issue (6). This paper presents a database management system developed for AOF (Faculty of Open Education) course books. Its rationale is based on the development of a database application that share data and operations through a database. It supports organization's manipulation and retrieval of data. In order to organize large amounts of data (book's names, ISBN numbers, number printed; authors' names, and addresses, etc.) similar user interfaces are developed for different types of users. In addition, they can create special reports. It also encourages users who have no previous programming experience. The detail of the study is presented in the third part of the paper. In the second part of the paper, some knowledge about management information systems and database management systems are given.
