Portals to Higher Education

Until the late 90s, it used to be a gigantic task for young Indians seeking admission in colleges. Although some of varsities like Delhi University had introduced the concept of cut-off marks for the aspirant students, by and large, these youngsters were made to run from pillar to post, nay hopping from one college to another for the mere admission form. Indeed, this period presented an apt scenario to define what is meant by anxiety.

Presto, the advent of World Wide Web (www) and the resultant website put an end to this mad rush among the fraternity of students. Thanks to the college website development services rendered by reputed IT companies like Sterco Digitex coupled by mass computer literacy, all that the students needed was performed by the mere click of the mouse. Right from procuring an admission form to details about a graduation course, the syllabi, the faculty and last date of submission of the application form, everything turned out to be a simplified procedure.

In fact, the services of website designers became a boom for the private colleges since the media on the net provided an international exposure as well as projected the institution in an impressive manner to lure students from all corners. Thus the admission and subsequent semesters leading to graduation scroll have become a smooth and simplified process.

Meanwhile, with several private varsities emerging on the scene, the IT companies engaged in web related projects were approached to render university website development services. Reportedly, there are over 100 private universities in India today and they have been able to reach out almost all the students across the country. In this context, Sterco Digitex successfully experimented with various tools and modes as the appropriate solutions in designing a website for universities. Online admissions, alumni portal, international student section, department microsite and several other significant aspects have been some of the ready examples of these developments. In other words, the website portal has truly proved to be a gateway of a university or a college and it will remain so for all times to come.
