Abstract: Learning management systems have become a revolution in the field of education. Privatisation of education has paved the way for such technology. Nowadays even government institutions have started incorporating virtual learning environment in their systems. Learning management system is a broad domain. It has a diverse range of features which address variety of problems that were earlier faced by academic circles. One of the features that attend the needs of final year students in bachelor and master’s level is a Final Year Degree Project (FYDP) handler system. But not much has been done to improve the system. The existing FYDP management system covers very few fields like computer science engineering, IT, and few other engineering departments. Science departments hardly benefit out of it. In this draft I have proposed a new pedagogical strategy that will take care of FYDPs of microbiology, biotechnology and some other science departments. The strategy is conceptualised following Learning Collaboratory Framework (LUCIDIFY). Based on the pedagogy I have built a FYDP management system application. I have developed a Model Driven Architecture (MDA) for the purpose of building the application.
