the institute where I am working at wants to create a database for students. I will have to find the best and easiest solution for this application and I only need your suggestions. I will have to consider the options, but I would like to keep in contact with you and maybe hire you to help me with some parts of this job.
- We would like to create a simple website/web application where students can enter their data into a form, without having access to the database.
- Once the data has been entered, the students shouldn't be allowed to change the data entered.
- The institute's employees should then be able to access the database and enter some more of the student data (thesis deadline, grade,..). Maybe by creating a frontend page where employees can login and then edit and export the data. If the backend is user-friendly I guess they could edit data there.
- It is fairly important to us to be able to export a student's data into a .pdf form like this one: [url removed, login to view]
- We would also like a student's data to be automatically deleted after a defined number of years(5 or 10 years), maybe after automatically sending a notification to the datamanager.
- Because of hacking worries, the institute wants this website to be only accessed locally. What this means is that in order for a student to be able to enter his data, he will have to come and use the institute's computers.
The institute has been using MS Access until now but I am not sure it is suited for this kind of application. What we have in mind is creating a CMS type platform with a simple login page, as far as I know Wordpress is the most user-friendly platform. If a student is logging in the website will open a form where the student will enter his data, if an employee is logging in he will be able to edit the student's data. The most important thing is the ease of use of the platform, both for me creating it and for the students/employees using it. I would like a platform for which I can find a lot of documentation (books, tutorials,..). Now I need you to tell me which platform will let me create this kind of application.
Before bidding keep in mind that I will only pay you for the suggestion and not for creating the application needed, I will try to create this myself but I might hire you to help me with some tasks.
