The description will help to outline the design of the online system. 1 Architecture Overview The system design (see Fig. 1) is based on client/server architecture to support multi-author online access. When a client’s request is sent to the server, the server will query on the OODB (Object Oriented Database) based on the request and process the query result. Once the process is finished, the result is sent back to the client in the form of XML response. The client will then parse the XML response into Flash recognizable data and render the data with a designated Flash template.

London: Sage Publications. 32. K. (2002). Gender Differences in Teacher Computer Acceptance. Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, 10(3), 365-382. au Abstract. In the context of higher education, the current manual system of allocating labs to students is not only time consuming but is also inefficient and inconvenient. In this paper, we present a web-based lab administration system, ALIAS, which provides a flexible and comprehensive tool to assist e-learning. The tool solves most, if not all, problems related to the administration of lab allocation.

It is expected that when students learn more about the value of the system, say, through promotion by the College or the lecturer, their attitude would be changed. The design and the performance of the system would also affect the students’ attitude towards the system. Apparently, in mandatory situation, student attitudes may not be a prime factor in adoption. As more secondary and primary schools using web-enhanced learning, improvement in student attitudes toward web-based instruction will be observed.
