Forensic science educators have long argued for the use of more innovative approaches in forensic teaching. The lockdown has forced individuals and departments to embrace these views with speed. In this regard, the researcher would want to designed and develop the bullet ID system for forensic ballistics students. This study will be conducted using the Agile Software Development Methodology. According to Stackify (2017), Agile Methodology is an approach that is people-focused, results-focused to software. It involves planning, self-organization, and short delivery times. It’s flexible, fast, and aims for continuous improvements in quality. It abandons the risk of spending months or years on a process that ultimately fails because of some small mistake in an early phase. It relies instead on trusting employees and teams to work directly with customers to understand the goals and provide solutions in a fast and incremental way. The Bullet ID is a promising educational tool that will help both the instructors and students in their learning activities specially in the field of forensic ballistics. This new learning technology will bridge the gap between face-to-face and online classes.
