Abstract. Modern world learners want to get more knowledge about their respective field which they like. The Learner just has to implement the knowledge using which they are learnt. This implementation has been used in the modern world. Learners are like to study in within the term they like to learn supplementary bunch. This requirement has been fulfilled by the online education system. The online Educational System provides the Notes, Books, Audio and Video Lectures, Manuals, Presentations etc., learners are expecting more apart from the contents or the learners are not willing to study which were provided by the online Educational System. The online Educational system provider has to know about the Learners satisfaction level, which has been evaluated by the Learners feedback. The feedback analysis has been evaluated by the selected criteria. Each criterion has some scoring options. Using this option, the learners will give the feedback to the particular subject trainer through the scoring options. Finally, feedback scores are evaluated and give the advice to the trainer to implement the new techniques for giving the training. This operation is instructing the trainer to implement and update their teaching skills.
Keywords: E-learning, Learner, Trainer.


1. INTRODUCTION


Anything can be able to learn from anywhere through the Internet. The use of electronic media, information and communication technologies in education, teaching and training is called E-learning (Awad, M., Venkatesan, S., Roberts, H., Keating, N., and Myles, P. 2013). E-learning provides on the Management decreasing the cost of learning delivery, and inexpensive travel, survival cost and time away from the job. The proposed system detects the differences among trainers by using the Evaluation Criteria. An important goal of E-learning system is to deliver instructions that can produce equal or better outcomes than face-to-face learning systems. To achieve the goal, an increasing number of empirical studies have been conducted over the past decades to address the issue of what antecedent variables affect the students’’s satisfaction and learning outcomes and to examine potential predictors of e-learning outcomes (Bassil, Y. 2012). A positive change in knowledge outcomes was shown as an increase in the proportion of students with correct responses after completion of the e-learning package as compared to baseline knowledge scores (Srivastava, E., and Agarwal, D. N. 2013).


2. METHODOLOGY TO COLLECT THE FEEDBACK


The numbers of Criterion have given to the learners to give the performance of the trainer. The Trainer Performance can be given like Very good, Good, Average, Need Improvement and Poor. Each performance has been allocating some marks. Finally, conclude the performance of the faculty through the marks which have been given by the learners. The Criteria has listed below.


3. STEPS TO FIND THE TRAINER PERFORMANCE


Criterion types (CT) need to be defined to analyze the trainer. Each criterion has been awarded and evaluated by the Score Type (SCT). They have to find the Number of counts for the score type (NCT) and assign the scores for particular criterion (SPC).These are the basic requirements to find the Total Score for Particular Criterion (TSPC), Total Score for All Criterions (TSAC), Average Score for Particular Criterion (ASPC) and Average Score for all Criterions (ASAC). The Number of Criterion has defined as NC.


TSPC=Ʃ [SCT*SPC] / Ʃ [NCT]
ASPC=[TSPC/100]/NC
TSAC=ASPC/NC
ASAC=TSAC/NC


The Average Score for Particular Criterion (ASPC) which has been secured by the learners. The Average Score for all Criterions is the Cumulative and the score which have been secured by the learners using the Proposed System.


4. DESIGN OF THE FEEDBACK ANALYSIS


The Proposed System has been designed for learners to give the feedback about the trainers’ performance and the Environments. The Design starts with Academic Year Selection and Ends with Cumulative Feedback Report.

5. DATABASE TOOL


DBMS short for database management system plays an important role in most real-world projects that require storing, retrieving and querying digital data (Saba, T.).

5.1. Advantages of Microsoft SQL Server


1. Microsoft SQL Server has built-in data integrity/recovery facilities. Instead of all users accessing the same file at the same time, each user talks to the server software, and the server software manages the creation, reading and writing of information to each table. Data backup and restore options are built into the server software.
2. Microsoft SQL Server has user and group level security. Instead of giving each user access to the folder that contains all of your data files (as is necessary with the native database), you simply give them rights to speak to the server software. Rights can be granted based on your Windows Domain users and groups. The actual file that the server uses in order to store data can be invisible to the user.
3. As the number of users grows, it will provide better performance than the native
Database.
4. Performance is not affected by anti-virus programs.
5. It is an industry standard database, meaning almost any database aware application will need to be able to access your data, including various report writers and Excel.


5.2. Disadvantages of Microsoft SQL Server

 

1. Require a level of knowledge of the Microsoft SQL Server environment.
2. Backups must be done in a different way.

5.3. The Way to Use MS SQL Server

 

In case of MS SQL Server, by clicking on the corresponding icon, a new database can be created.

Once a database is created, a user can login to his/her database and, after which he/she can work with the objects in the database. In case of Oracle, we are always automatically logged into the default database of Oracle and we can login into the same as different users.

A database in MSSQL server can be renamed by selecting the corresponding option.

There is an option provided for dropping an already existing database when the GUI is connected to the MSSQL Server.

The user can monitor and view the database properties, like name, owner, and size, date of creation, status and contents.

The user can access the opened database through a Graphical User Interface. Through this interface, the user can see and work with the database objects like tables, queries and reports.

The user can create tables in the selected database. A design view is provided, through which the user can simply enter the field name, select the data type from a select list. There are separate options for setting a field as primary, unique, or not null. There is another option for adding checking constraint on a field or a default value in a field.

This option allows the user to view the contents (rows) in a table.

The user can execute any query on the database using the user-friendly graphical interface. All the tables in the database are listed, from which the user can choose the one(s) in which he/she has to execute the query. The user can choose the type of query to be executed (like select, update, make-table and delete). The field(s) in the table(s) in which the query needs to be executed can be selected from a list and the conditions can be input, all using the graphical interface. The conditions can include sorting (ascending, descending or none), fields to display, criteria and any other specification, if any. The result of the query action is exhibited.

User can first select a table, and then execute select queries on it. Select query can be executed in different ways:

 

Any alteration on the table can be made on a selected table using this option. Alterations that can be made includes the Following:

 

This option is used for making any updating on a selected table. Any condition for updating can also be specified if required.

This option is used for deleting rows from a selected table. Deletion can also be performed by specifying conditions so that only rows satisfying that condition are deleted.

This option allows a user to drop an already existing table from a database

Using this option, the user can insert rows into an existing table.

If required, the user can execute queries in SQL mode, not using the graphical interface. A separate workspace is provided, where the query can be typed and executed.
The Feedback collection is checked with two different database tools. Both are developed by the Micorsoft Corporation. One is MS-Access. Another one is SQL SERVER. While using the MS-Access tool the application not stored all the data to the database because the tool has not the backup media retention “Wait indefinitely” and Recovery interval. These two choices are used to store the feedback to the database without missing. These choices are fulfilled by the SQL SERVER Database tool. The Existing System has used the MS-Access database tool and the proposed System has used to the SQL SERVER Database tool.


6. RESULT AND CONCLUSION


The Feedback is collecting from the Learners through Online using the Proposed System. While using the Existing System, the Number of receiving feedback is 82.38%. But the proposed system receives 98.74%.

7. FUTURE DEVELOPMENT


For making the system adaptive to the changing environment, it will be necessary that the system will be produced above the percentage which is provided by the proposed system.
