An evaluation of the information system for internship, a case study in the Mahasarakham Business School, Mahasarakham University

Main Article Content



Recently, the Cooperative Education in the Department of Student Affairs of the Mahasarakham Business School, Mahasarakham University has been found to have a number of problems in its operations. For example, the business organizations data collection of the Cooperative Education Center in the Student Affairs Division of Mahasarakham University is difficult to access. The data is disorganized and hard to search. Student data are not updated or are redundant. This is because the methods of collecting of data between the students and the Cooperative Education staff are not identical. The students cannot access the files to check the status of business organizations, nor can they survey new business organizations. Also, the Cooperative Education staff who serves the users (business organizations, students, and cooperative advisors) lacks the support system to accommodate the users. Therefore, this research presents a newly developed system called the Internship Information System (InIS). To evaluate the satisfaction of users for the InIS the researcher has created a questionnaire for these users in order to understand the problems, solutions, and other issues for future development. There are 227 respondents comprised of two advisors and 225 students. The results confirm the satisfaction of the users of InIS. The satisfaction is high at a satisfactory level of 4 out of 5. This means that InIS can solve the problems mentioned above and is able to answer the research objectives satisfactorily. Consequently, the Cooperative Education staff, business organizations, students, and cooperative advisors will have used the most effective and efficient tool, and will raise the quality of the service process.
