Chapter 1: Introduction
Have you been able to go to a party or other social gathering in the last year or two without running into conversations about the Internet? Chances are, the answer is no.
This global network has been around for nearly 20 years, but most people seems to have appeared out of nowhere in the last year or two. In that time, more and more people have tried it out. Many have been able to get through the initial startup, which is almost always baffling, and have come to appreciate this brave new world for the phenomenal amount of information it makes available, as well as for its entertainment value.
Today, internet is very popular. Many people and companies invest in it due to its worldwide connection and access. It renders services such as advertisements, new technologies, and new movies especially to those popular people including celebrities and high officials, and virtually any subject you can think of. It also serves as research reference for many, especially students. You may even avail of chats where you can make new friends around the world.
Because of it being in demand and popular to people, as graduating students, we thought of putting a Computer Science WebPage in the Internet.
Not to boast about the graduates but to give them the advantage of being known by companies who need their services. This is also a nice way of helping the students to be known not only in their places but also throughout the world. Their faces will be seen as well as their scholastic records and some personal information.
As a start, we also have placed the student’s achievements and activities or organizations that he had participated in. With this effort, we can also advertise our school and the courses we have finished. In short, not only the students or their relatives benefits from this but also the school and those who are planning to finish a degree in the near future but haven’t decided yet what to take and where to take it.
The idea of this study started when we saw our elder brothers and sisters as well as our parents with their classical Yearbook. We had the difficulty of scanning book pages, looking for them; they’re past activities and organizations. With the advent of this new technology, these difficulties won’t be experienced anymore.
So why be contented with this old style of Yearbook when we can have a better and “viewer friendly” one?
Statement of the Problem
The purpose of the study is to determine whether or not a CompSci WebPage in the Internet would be feasible for future usage.
Specifically, the researcher would like to address the following problems:
- Is a CompSci WebPage in the Internet better than that the usual Yearbook?
- Will this be applicable to all students whatever their courses may be?
- What are its advantages as well as disadvantages?
- What can this project contribute to trends of technology?
- In terms of the cost, will the CompSci WebPage in the internet cost more than that of the classical Yearbook, and would be difference of cost worth it?
