Virtual Learning Platform with Short Message Service (SMS) Notification

James Brian Flores


This study aimed to analyze, design, develop and evaluate a virtual learning platform with short message service text notification for SLSU.Co-Model, a combination of Waterfall model and ADDIE model was used as a framework of the system’s development. PHP and MySQL were used as primary systems development tools. An online SMS API provider was also used for sending SMS text messages. The system was launched online before the gathering and evaluation of data. It is accessible using the web address, A descriptive survey method was used in gathering the data and adopted questionnaires were used to evaluate the performance of the developed system. The developed system was found to be outstanding in terms of functionality and debugging; it was also good in terms of complexity,interface design,and support services. The results of the functionality assessment conclude that the system is a good platform for virtual learning.
