Keywords: ONLINE BLOGGING SYSTEM
Online Blogging System is implemented in Blogger. In existing system information is passed to all levels of the department manually. The methodology adopted for this project is the Structured System Analysis and Design Methodology (SSADM). The Proposed Online Blogging System provide option where the Head of Department can pass information to all levels of the department with ease, Update record of Events and Current News about the Department, Provide online interactive forum for students of the department.
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
A blog is a type of website, usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, interaction, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order.
Educators are using blogs in many ways including as online portfolios, for teachers and students for provision of course content, as a record of field notes, as discipline specific spaces for knowledge sharing, as a space for student dialogue and for class administration.
Blogs can be used to facilitate group working and discussion forum between the lecturers and students, a number of commentators argue that blogs encourage reflective learning (Chen 2005); they can be used as a diary to keep a record of achievement and of interesting material. The way that blogs are typically organised allows the reader/viewer to re-contextualise posts according to categories and dates as well as allowing the user to use key words to search for posts on any topic. Blogs can decrease feelings of isolation for distance students (Dickey, 2004), and promote the shift from surface to deep learning (Bartlett-Bragg, 2003; Oravec, n.d., in Williams & Jacobs, 2004). Ferdig and Trammel (in Williams & Jacobs, 2004) argue that the immediacy and commentary based systems of blogging lead to reflection and analysis and contextualisation of learning via hyperlinks. They further contend that blogs are more successful in promoting interactivity that is conversational as opposed to other online discussion. Research also suggests that blogs allow a more creative response from students (Oravec,2003) and that the open and interlinked nature of blogs connects learners to contexts beyond the classroom (Baim, 2004; Halavais, 2004).

i. The Head of Department (HOD) find it difficult to pass vital information to all levels of the department.
ii. There is no records of Events and News about the Department
iii. No interactive forum between students of the department for cooperates and project work.
1.3 OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY
The objective of this study is to develop software that will:-
i. Provide option where the Head of Department can pass information to all levels of the department with ease.
ii. Update record of Events and Current News about the Department
iii. Provide online interactive forum for students of the department.
