Implementing an Academic Task Manager: Findings from a Pilot Study


Objective: Time management methods need to be employed to encourage students in time tracking. This work presents the development and implementation of a task management application for task and time management. Methods: The functionalities of the task manager were modelled using UML (Unified Modelling Language), and a prototype of the system developed using Android Studio as the code compiler for the mobile application. A pilot test was carried out to evaluate ease of use, usefulness and continuous usage of the application. Findings: Although some of the respondents had found the application useful in helping them track their time and monitor their tasks, they did not visit the application frequently hence, no desirable affect on the outcome of their time management skills. Application: The strategic application of this solution to a wider audience would also increase productivity within related demographics such as among business owners, busy executives and parents.
