Research Design and Methodology

3.1 Research Setting
Research setting is the place where the proponents will conduct the study. This will allow setting boundaries to the proposed study. Those people on the research setting will represent all of the people that can use the proposed study. The research setting is the Systematic investigation to establish facts.

3.2 Research Populations
In defining a population for this study, such a population must be specific enough to provide a clear understanding of the applicability of the study to their particular situation and their understanding of that same population. It therefore becomes important to select the proper method of sampling, the process by which representative individuals are randomly selected to provide insights into the entire population under study.

The proponents selected (30) of respondents that will answer the questionnaire and the evaluation forms of the proposed system. The respondents are teachers and students that will be the beneficiaries and may also be the user of the proposed system. The respondents should have the ability to answer the given questions correctly and reliability.

3.3 Research Design
A detailed outline of how an investigation will take place. A research design will typically include how data is to be collected, what instruments will be employed, how the instruments will be used and the intended means for analyzing data collected.

A research design is the arrangement of conditions for data in a manner that aims to combine relevance to the research purpose with economy in procedure.

3.4 Methods of Research Used
In order to achieve through understanding of all the activities required defining and designing system. The proponents used different methodologies in order to establish the problems and simultaneously formulate the solutions. The methods used are the following.

3.4.1 Creative Method
Ability to produce something new through imaginative skill, whether a new solution to a problem, a new method or device, or a new artistic object or form, the term generally refers to a richness of ideas and originally of thinking. 3.4.2 Library Method

This method of research uses organized knowledge that is printed in books collectively organized into a collection called a library. The proponents will not utilize this resource extensively due to advent of more efficient technology. The proponent s through will extract from this resource a basic pattern and format of the study writing to supplement their knowledge on how to present a better and effective report. The proponents conducted this method at AMA computer College Library.

3.4.3 Internet Research Method
Certainly the Internet has revolutionized our perception of information and information access. Information is everywhere on the Internet, existing in large quantities and continuously being created and revised. Finding information on the Internet has been described as drinking from a fire hose.

Internet Research Methods explores the ways in which the internet can support traditional research methods and also the ways in which it can be used to conduct research in more innovative ways. It sets out to provide the information about method, techniques, procedures and tools which are required for internet based research.

3.5 Data Gatherings Techniques and Instruments
These are varieties of research that supports data gathering. The tools used for the research are instruments that provide for collection of data upon which they were tested. It is essential for the researcher t to collect as much possible reliable information needed for more scientific investigation of the system to be implemented.

3.5.1 Observation
An extensive array of research methods used with the intention of observing consumer interactions with products and services in their natural surroundings. The...
