This paper presents an Educational Management Information System (EDMIS) that was developed to provide a series of capabilities managing project-based activities in secondary education. This system is a web-based application that was designed using programming languages and a Database Management System (DBMS). Project-based learning is a pedagogical method that is rapidly gaining ground in the educational environment. The management of project-based activities using this information system can offer many benefits. The teacher can interact online with the students, providing them information about the assigned projects, solving issues, and guiding their work. The students can use the system in order to interact with the teacher obtaining valuable information, guidelines and guidance, and providing data of their work. This information system aims at improving the quality of project-based learning, providing online interaction between the instructor and the students in a learning environment and storing data of the learning procedure in the database of the system.
