Abstract

The availability of many platforms for developing e-learning applications gives rise to the problem of choosing the most appropriate platform. Students' performance could be enhanced if the platform chosen by the institution for teaching the relevant concepts is very suitable in various respects including portability. This study establishes and apply a set of criteria for evaluating the portability of the platforms. These criteria were tested by evaluating four platforms namely Java Servlets, JavaServer Pages, Active Server Pages (ASP) and PHP Hypertext Processor using various research methods including descriptive inquiry, document analysis, observations and programming tests. While Java Servlet and JSP were found to be more portable on applying the criteria, the significance of the study lies in the establishment of a comprehensive but specific set of criteria that can be used as a scientific basis for selection.
