This project is a Java Web Application that provides an Educational Website to host online class materials for students attending the various courses. The general flow of the website supports:


  • Multiple course offerings, e.g. Start Date 8/1/2017, or 10/25/2017. Most recent accessible directly.
  • Multiple Course Labels, e.g. JAVA-1111, XJAV-1122, tracked as the educational agency changes over time. Most recent accessible directly.
  • A list of Prerequisites
  • Most recent Instructor available
  • A list of textbooks
  • A default number of class meeting sessions
  • A list of course objectives
  • A lesson plan by session


  • Provides a specific number of class meeting sessions for each offering.
  • allows for numerous instructors per offering
  • tracks time logistics (e.g. start date, start time, end date, end time, days of weeks, term) for the offering
  • has location logistics information (e.g. location, room, seats)

Common Course Pages

Programmatically generates the typical starting pages unique for each course and offering. This saves 100’s of statically stored web pages and greatly reduces the setup time for new courses and saves web design time needed for routine materials.
