    In my diploma thesis, a prototype of a simple education system to be used by teachers and learners alike, and managed by an administrator has been developed. To teachers, the system offers many functionalities, such as the formation of learning materials, records of participants and grades, and learners assessments through quizzes. The administrator supervises user records, adds new subjects to teachers and confirms users. Learners can acquire knowledge through lessons while strengthening it with the help of quizzes. Existing learning management systems are often too extensive and offer too many functionalities. When utilizing them for the first time, teachers and other user groups often do not possess the skill set to use the system properly, and therefore need additional training. Because of the reasons listed above, a prototype of a simple, easy to use education system has been designed, where the users need not undergo any additional training in order to grasp the systems functioning. In the first chapter, a review of existing learning management systems is presented. In the next one, the technologies used, the requirements for developing the application, as well as functionalities of user groups are described in detail. The main part of the diploma thesis deals with the development of the application. In this part, the implementation of the database, two-tier architecture and graphical user interfaces for all user groups (teacher, learner and administrator) are described. At the end of the chapter, the testing and analysis of the application is delineated. The result of the diploma thesis is a working prototype of a simple education system that can be used as a foundation for a more significant learning system.
