I’m developing a school management information system and I need some advice

Hi guys, so as one of my personal projects to improve my skills, I decided to build an information system with Java using MySQL as the backend. I chose this because I have a family member that owns a primary school and all her activities are analog, data entry is paper etc. so the idea is to test it with her school when I’m done. I have some questions, should I make it web-based or desktop based. I live in a 3rd world country so internet is not as cheap, I don’t know her school internet services. Will it being offline(desktop based) be a disadvantage? How do I make it cloud based? Is that a good option. If it’s desktop based, it means all data can only be inputed on one computer right? I plan on marketing it to other schools after the test run, a lot of primary schools in my country don’t use information systems, so it can be a lucrative business
