Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 738)

Abstract

The students’ portal is a student management information system developed in-house for higher education institution in Kazakhstan. It represents a major part among university information systems. This paper reviews the common features of the general portal structure. The architecture of the new students’ portal framework is presented (Boranbayev, Nonlinear Anal. 71:1633–1637, 2009). It consists of a web application developed for the university, dedicated for students and staff members of the department of Student Affairs. It was developed in the last 6 years with such technologies like IBM WebSphere, Java EJB, JavaScript, HTML, and Oracle Database. The university’s system designers and application development team constantly work on enhancing and improving it. The software architecture of the developed portal is shared among various web applications at the university (Boranbayev and Boranbayev, Development and optimization of information systems for health insurance billing. Seventh International Conference on Information Technology: New Generations (ITNG 2010), Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, 2010, pp. 1282–1284). This architecture and experience may be used by various development teams developing local applications for universities, either in-house or with the help of suppliers and vendors.

In addition, the paper discusses how the students’ portal components were developed. The research contributes towards the higher education field worldwide by providing a solution that could be followed for building university portals with various components.
