Summary/Abstract: This paper aims to present the steps, methods and technologies used to create the new management module of the automatic allocation of students' optional assignments for mid-term projects, homework and graduation thesis, using a virtual education system. The Easy-Learning platform provides a framework for any type of on-line or off-line activity in distance/virtual learning, which is useful for tutors and students at any level of education and training. To achieve this new integrated module within the platform, PHP5, JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3 technologies, MariaDB database and REST, Android, Apache (web server) services were used, as well as a number of methodologies for securing communication between a server application and a client application. The paper presents in detail the new proposed procedure and emphasizes the achieved benefits and progress, with numerous examples to illustrate the methodology of design, implementation and use of this module. The Easy-Learning platform is a complex e-learning system running on a web server (local or remote) and was created with dynamic web pages using Symfony framework, based on the objectoriented side of the PHP web programming language. Among other features, the platform uses MariaDB as a database management system for storing and retrieving information. The main reason to choose the development environment is given by the minimum requirements needed for the applications (running on the server).
