There is an internal messaging system to make communication possible between central Administrator, Coordinators, and Teachers.
Teachers, Coordinators, and Students can also communicate with each other using the internal messaging system.
Online Publishing Tool for School Administration for schools system will provide an online publishing tool which can be used by the central administrators, school coordinators, individual teachers and students (grades Kindergarten through Sixth Grade).
Teachers can create projects (class and individual) and then use the dashboard system can communicate with the Coordinator (if needed) and the Students for the final project (manuscripts) submission.
Students would use the tool that is built in ADOBE FLEX for creating the pages of their project.
The final output of book pages and book cover are then of sufficient high-quality to be printed at specification though client’s learning’s production line.
There is an Admin panel (central administrators) to manage Schools, Coordinators, and Teachers

The design approach was built around Visual Studio .Net Framework (3.5) and SQL SERVER 2008 due to the e-learning domain of the application. Modules like Teachers, Coordinators, Projects, Assignments and Students were developed in C#.Net such that they can be executed directly from the UI layer. In order to most effectively access the database in an object- oriented context, an interface translating the object logic to the relational logic was used to communicate with the relational databases in an object-oriented manner.
An intermediary abstraction layer was created for accessing data from the database. Triggers were used only for complex updation and deletion of data from multiple tables and were entirely avoided with conditional syntax to ensure smooth performance of the application. The UI layer was kept free of any business logic with images, applications and data being called from their respective servers. Web usability guidelines were strictly followed during development and the interface was made easily navigable through judicious use of Flex, JSON, AJAX, CSS, HTML and Web Server Controls. The site was developed and fully functional within a span of 5 months.
