Abstract

The websites play a vital role in disseminating the information widely to their end users. The university websites are the gateway to their students/users through online medium which helps in communicating the information published by the authorities relating to their respective universities. This article is an attempt to evaluate and compare the web contents of the North-Eastern Hill University (NEHU) and Mizoram University (MZU). A structured checklist was prepared for the present study based on the previous evaluation of websites conducted by different authors. For analysing the contents of the university websites, a list of 73 criteria was prepared under the 14 headings. A quantitative three point rating scale was designed for the present study to determine a meaningful numerical rating for the individual features of the NEHU and MZU websites. It is observed from the present study that almost all the criteria listed for evaluation of the websites has been fulfilled by both the universities and both the websites are found to be very simple and easily accessible by the users. The study reveals that NEHU scored the highest point, that is, 59 out of 69 to that of MZU (47). Based on this study, it has been suggested that both the university websites have to be evaluated frequently and the current information needs to be made available to their end users.
