How Does Project-Based Learning Work?

LSET project-based learning model allows students to work on real-world applications and apply their knowledge and skills gained in the course to build high-performing industry-grade applications. As part of this course, students learn agile project management concepts, tools, and techniques to work on the assigned project collaboratively. Each student completes project work individually but is encouraged to enhance their solution by collaborating with their teammates.

Following are the steps involved in the LSET’s project-based learning;

  1. Step 1: Project Idea Discussion

    In this step, students get introduced to the problem and develop a strategy to build the solution.

  2. Step 2: Build Product Backlog

    This step requires students to enhance the existing starter product backlog available in the project. This helps students to think about real-life business requirements and formulate them in good user stories.

  3. Step 3: Design Releases and Sprints

    In this step, students define software releases and plan sprints for each release. Students must go through sprint planning individually and learn about story points and velocity.

  4. Step 4: Unit and Integration Tests

    In this step, students learn to write unit tests to ensure every application part works fine.

  5. Step 5: Use CICD to Deploy

    In this step, students learn to use CICD (Continuous Integration Continuous Delivery) pipeline to build their application as a docker image and deploy it to Kubernetes.

Capstone Project

LSET gives you an opportunity to work on the real world project which will greatly help you to build your technical portfolio

Project Topic: Online Banking

London has been a leading international financial centre since the 19th century. In recent years, London has seen many FinTech start-ups and significant innovations in the banking sector. This project aims to introduce students to the financial industry and technologies used to handle billions of daily transactions. As part of this project, students will learn the current technological advances and build up their knowledge to start a simple banking application. This application uses agile project management practices to build basic functionality. Students will be presented with user stories to create the initial project backlog. Students need to enhance this backlog by adding more relevant user stories and working on them.

LSET emphasises project-based learning as it allows the students to master the course content by going through near real-world work experience. LSET projects are carefully designed to teach the industry-required skills and mindset. It motivates the students on various essential aspects like learning to work in teams, improving communication with peers, taking the initiative to look for innovative solutions, enhancing problem-solving skills, understanding the end user requirements to build user-specific products, etc.

Capstone Projects build students’ confidence in handling projects and applying their newly learned skills to solve real-world problems. This allows the students to reflect upon their learning and find the opportunity to get the most out of the course. Learn more about Capstone Projects here.

Learning Outcome

  • Students will learn to work in an agile environment
  • Students will learn the agile project management terms used in the industry, like product backlog, user stories, story points, epics, etc.
  • Students will learn to use a Git repository and understand the concepts like commit, pull, push, branch, etc.
  • Students will learn to communicate in a team environment and effectively express their ideas.

Guidance and Help

A dedicated project coordinator who can mentor students on the process will be assigned to this project. Students can also avail of the instructor’s hours as and when needed. LSET may get an industry expert with subject-specific experience to help students understand the industry and its challenges.

Execution Process

This project will be carried out in steps. Each step teaches students a specific aspect of the subject and development paradigm. Following are the steps students will follow to complete this project.

Step 1: Project Introduction Self Study [6 days]

In the first step, students will learn about the financial industry and review the project introduction documentation to build up the subject knowledge. This is a self-learning stage; however, instructor hours are available if required.

Step 2: Project Build-up and Environment Setup [2 days]

In this step, students are required to follow the project guide to set up the development environment. The project document guides students to find and connect to the LSET Git repository and install the necessary libraries or tools.

Step 3: Product Backlog and Sprint Planning [2 days]

In this step, students will use the existing product backlog and enhance it per their project scope. Students can seek help from the project coordinator and the instructor. The project coordinator will help students do sprint planning and assign story points to the stories. This process is meant to give students real-world work environment experience. Students can consider this a mock exercise on agile project management practices.

Step 4: User Stories Execution and Development [12 days]

Students will work on the user stories identified in the Step 3 process in this step. Students will write code and algorithms to complete the development objectives. The project coordinator will be available to help students to guide them on the development and answer any questions they may have. Students can also discuss this with the instructor.

Step 5: Testing, Deployment and Completion [5 days]

In this step, students will test and deploy the application to the cloud environment. Students will experience the deployment process in the cloud and learn the best practices. After the successful deployment, students will present their project to the instructor and the external project reviewer. Feedback will be given to the students. Students will have one week to work on the feedback and submit the final copy of the project, which will be sent to the external examiner for evaluation.

Project Presentation

LSET emphasises preparing students for the work environment by allowing them to learn the required soft skills. After completing the project, students must present their work to the instructor and an invited project reviewer panel. Please note that the assigned external examiner will not be part of this panel and hence will not know about the students. This ensures an unbiased assessment by the external examiner. This exercise aims to allow students to experience an environment they may face in their actual job. Also, it gives them a chance to get feedback from industry experts who can guide students on various parts of the project. This will help students to learn and fix anything they find necessary in their project. This ensures quality output and allows students to learn about industry requirements.

The instructor and the project reviewer panel will assess the students on the following;

Project Repository on GitHub [10 points]: The instructor will ensure that the students have uploaded the project repository to the LSET’s GitHub account per the guidelines in the project requirement documentation. Full points will be awarded if the repository is appropriately set up per the instructions.

Presentation Skills [20 points]: Students must present their work in the given timeframe. Full points will be awarded if students cover everything needed to deliver their work in the given timeframe.

Communication Skills [20 points]: Students must present their work in a manner understandable by all the participants. More focus will be given to how students communicate, not the language. Full points will be awarded if students can share their work correctly.

Evaluation Criteria

LSET promotes a transparent and unbiased evaluation process. All the external examiners will follow a set process to grade students. No student’s personal or identifying information will be shared with the external examiners, so they will not know about the person they are grading. They will only get the project files and grading guidelines to follow. This will ensure equal quality standards across the institute.

Following are some critical areas the LSET external examiners will be grading on.
