  • With the help of search facility, it is easy for students to make any search for specified course as well as checking details. 
  • Timetable need to be sent to students with help of email whenever registration is over.
  • Functional requirements should be integrated through database of ABC University.
  • System focus on providing payment facility gateway for students to make easy payment through tuition fees.

Question 3

Nonfunctional Requirements (NRS) is defined as system that attributes in terms of reliability, maintainability, security, performance, usability and scalability (Guo & Lu, 2015). This is regarded as system qualities, nonfunctional requirements are regarded as critical aspect of functional epics, features, capabilities and stories. It also describes about how systems are working. The different nonfunctional requirements of online student enrolment system are described below:


  • It should be made available all time without making any unexpected downtime
  • System need to notify students regarding schedules of timetables.


  • System need to be accessible for all categories of students like disabled.
  • It should provide both video as well as audio support facilities.

  • It is providing navigation at top as well as best UI.
  • It is very easy to use as well as supporting various languages.

Interop ability

  • System is providing academic details.
  • It is providing events in form of calendar format. 

Therefore, system assist in using setting up more effective program as well as assisting to meet requirement of user for carrying out activities and operations. 

Question 4

A use case diagram is regarded as representation of user’s interaction in system which helps in showing relationship among various use as well as user in that user is included (Mukhopadhyay & et. al., 2016). It is regarded as software requirement for new underdeveloped program of software. This is collection of action that helps in defining interaction among actor as well as system for attainment of specified goal and objectives. In other language, it is defined as that system which will be doing for users. The documentation as well as diagrams are used for providing complete functional along with technical viewing of system. 

The given report has use case diagram for their system called online student enrolment system which is going to be drawn here. Such system has used by ABC university, for their students in  order to enrol themselves as well as paying for tuition fee with help of system. ABC University has initially used manual system for student registration procedure which was not effective so they adopted new system for enrolling system. The manual system provided several confusion and errors. With assistance of system, management of ABC could easily manage their process and conduct work in effective and efficient way. Use case diagram for enrolment system through online mode is described below:Online student enrolment system

Figure 2: use case diagram

Use case diagram that has shown above possess four actors like officer of timetables, program director, payment officers and students (Persi & et. al., 2018). Here, main actor is regarded as student who focus on carries whole enrolment process where officers of timetables for students whenever all registration gets over. On other side, payment officers need to make proper checking of all details of card of students as well as proceeding transaction to pay tuition fees. Last is program director generating report for all students who have enrolled in University. 

Registration of User

In this phase, students need to fill various details such as name, class, date of birth, address, mobile number and many more for registering themselves into system (Sun & et. al., 2019. In case of already registered then they should focus on logging directly into system. 


It is the phase where students need to enter their ID as well as password that is provided at registration (Petrovčič & et. al., 2018). If students has not registered then it is required to register otherwise they would be unable to access into system. Also, if student forget passwords then they may get new passwords with help of email. It will lead towards credential software program. 

Selection of Courses

In this phase, there is selection of courses by students according to interest areas and verified through availability of courses. Also, they could select more than one course as per classes’ time as well as availability. Each class possess limit of 50 students once this is full then students need to wait for next class. 

Reviewing all Details
