Abstract—In this paper, we introduce a novel approach to sharing information between students and lecturers in order to enhance quality of information in campus environment via WAP technology. We describe a network for distributing campus information among lecturers and students. The concept of developing campus information via WAP technology is to ensure that student can access information at any time, at any locations and ad-hoc basic. WAP Based Students Information System helps the students and lecturers on campus to find and access information based on ad-hoc basic, which is of interest and relevant to students or lecturers; they only need a PDA or a mobile phone. The second purpose of this study is to evaluate the capabilities of WAP service for retrieving and sending information. This research, focus groups are being used to develop survey instruments for measuring students’ satisfaction with WAP service implementation. Then, survey instruments will undergo testing and evaluation process for measuring the effectiveness of this WAP service implementation in campus environment. Students mostly agreed this WAP service is possible to utilize some of the campus problems in providing useful information solutions such as students’ results, students’ courses, announcements and news. The results and analysis show that based on framework the WAP-based customized information services have successfully performed in campus environment. Therefore, campus institutions can provide and offer information for mobile users (students) as value added services.
