Trial version of new Jamia portal

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: A trial version of the new portal of Jamia Millia Islamia is now accessible with a string of features which make it an improvement over the older website.

There is a possibility that the portal might have the facility of online payment of fees through a payment gateway from next year onwards.

Director of Jamia's FTK Centre for Information Technology Prof. Z. H. Khan said: “The USP of the portal is that it is interactive and dynamic. The portal provides for a learning management system which will allow the developing and hosting of courses as well as the posting of questions.”

Further, Web 2.0 features will allow students to chat and interact, participate in chat forums, blog and make podcasts. “In usual websites, one can only view the data, but there is no possibility of interaction. However, the Web 2.0 features permit interactivity,” Prof. Khan added.

Teachers will be able to upload data directly on the portal without going through the university. They can also place advertisements. Independent login facilities are available for teachers and students.

The “management information system” relating to e-governance and e-management which is usually available only on the university intranet will now be available on the portal.
