Mohamad Yusof Darus, Mohd Shafiq Akmal Hazani, Norkhushaini Awang


This study examined the effects of self-management system in the academic enhancement for poor student who got CGPAs below 2.0 in Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), Malaysia. In this research, the qualitative study was conducted to explore, describe, and examine how the self-management system helped UiTM students to develop motivation and concentration in their studies. This project used Mobile Application Development Lifecycle (MADLC) with respect to mobile applications development. The purpose of this project helped students managed themselves using the recent technologies which are mobile application, computer added learning and self-management system compared to traditional method. The proposed system showed that students that used this system improved their study and get better CGPAs.
