As the mobile applications are constantly facing a rapid development in the recent years especially in the academic environment such as student response system [1-8] used in universities and other educational institutions; there has not been reported an effective and scalable Database Management System to support fast and reliable data storage and retrieval. This paper presents Database Management Architecture for an Innovative Evaluation System based on Mobile Learning Applications. The need for a relatively stable, independent and extensible data model for faster data storage and retrieval is analyzed and investigated. It concludes by emphasizing further investigation for high throughput so as to support multimedia data such as video clips, images and documents.

Information Processing Conclusions and Future Work 6 6.1 Achievements The initial investigation of the database architecture has to evolve into the following: • • • Database model establishment. Authentication techniques. Integration with mobile based application and possibly multiple interfaces. Although the initial research is in the area of structured data formats collected from the student response system, further investigation is highly desirable to build a scalable data model that will enable multimedia support for unstructured data such as texts, images, documents, video clips on handheld devices without affecting the throughput or performance of the system. 7 Acknowledgement This project has been funded with support from the European Commission.
