This method makes the learning process more comfortable and efficient. System development life cycle (SDLC) combined with prototyping technique is used for the development process. The methodology is chosen because it attempts to reduce inherent project risk by breaking a project into smaller segments, provides easy to change during the development process and it is suitable used on developing online system. A survey had been done among lecturer of DCSM to identify the problems while the students learn in conventional way to find the better solution to the future's students. The complete system contain with a lot of tools for the convenience of students and lecturers.
