Because NSC is under the control of the Office of the non-formal and informal education, Ministry of Education. It needs to assure the quality of educational. To standardize it and to make the people accept it's roll and missions. Nakhon Si Thammarat Science center for education has developed the information system to assure the education quality. To store all data related to the standard and indicators.
It is very comfortable to save, store, search and implement. This system is a prototype for the other school or educational institue.
To make a Human Resouces information. Every year, NSC is usually rely on eCitizen software. (an application to manage the human resources that the central office has developed for all the school and education institute. So they can send back the same data.) When a school finish collecting data. It will be sent to report the Ministry of Education every year. eCitizen seems to cover the needs of work, but it is not. Because the delay in collecting data, difficult and inaccurate. So we initiate to develop our own information system to manage the human resources as describe follow:
1. Before develop stage. We has meet up to analyse the problem of what's the problem and how to improve it.
2. Research the possibility in making of an information system.
3. Analyse the user requirements
4. Design the system according to the user requirements.
5. Develop the system to the user requirements.
6. Implement the application onto the server.
7. Make a related documents.
8. Test and run the application before launch.
Kids will having fun with the outdoor park where there're many toys and activities to discover. Out door toys, 3D art street or observe a real rice field ecosystem.
Like a scientific delivery. Our bus contains many of knowledge and activity to serve every kids with joyful and experimental. Because the knowledge is not limit only in a room.
