“Design Project” was developed to direct, monitor and evaluate students’ design projects according to design processes. Students’ progress on these tabs depends on their receiving approval from their counselors for the previous page and on obtaining a passing grade for the report associated with that page. If this is not achieved, the student continues on the current stage, that is to say, on the previous tab.
In the first part of the home page, the name of the lesson and the start and end dates of the lesson are given. In the sub-section in which all of the projects groups are seen , a red “stop” symbol means that this stage is not approved by the counselor; a yellow “approval” (√) symbol means that this stage is approved by at least one jury member; an up arrow ()means that the counselor approved the data entered into the system and the stage report is expected; a green “completed” symbol means that the report was also evaluated by the counselor with a passing score. The green “completed” symbol means that the stage in question was completed by the student. Thus, the home page of the activity allows the instructor to easily see which level the students are on during the process; this information can also be seen by students. Thus, a student can see where they are in the process and compare their personal progress with other students in the section. The instructor can send a message to selected project groups via the “Send Message” button.
In all tabs other than the problem tab, after entering the required data, data students can click on the “I have entered data, check it” button and notify the instructors that the data has been entered for checking. The system will then send an e-mail notifying the instructors that data have been entered.
