The below is the extract from the Letter given by the Founder, CS Students' Online Club, to The ICSI. Few suggestions are already implemented, others will be given due regards by the IT Directorate of ICSI.

Certian points/suggestions are based on the feedbacks received from the Club Members & on the basis of the RATING through this Club. We thank all the Club Members who has given their suggestions, and participated in the RATING through Poll.

Please note that this post and contents is COPYRIGHT PROTECTED. COPYING THIS POST / SUGGESTIONS ETC. AND PLACING IT IN ANY OTHER FORUMS ETC. IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED.


Major pitfalls / demerits in the present icsi.edu website (as on 05.10.2009):

1. The total outlook in design is not attractive to present and future visitors to the website, when compared to most of the other Professional Institute’s website(s);

2. The title main banner itself is designed in an outdated fashion. The banner is not melted with the layout. It feels like a box is pasted in the website layout;

3. The Colors of the links in blue is an old fashion. The website totally looks like a child made site;

4. Most of the links are not working in most of the days. To be specific “A BANNER FOR Practitioner Guide to Consumer Protection Law – Click here to order” is displayed in the home page for the last One Year. But till date the link is not working. If a visitor clicks on this banner it will go to an error page.

5. The pictures in the home page is such a out-dated one, that an average visitor can judge the Institute’ quality in branding themselves;

6. The Announcements in the home page are not updated. Most of the Profession related news is available on other blogs, forums and websites. But, even after the profession related news is made public, you can’t see it / that news in the ICSI website. This is the most worrying matter. ALL PROFESSION RELATED NEWS MUST BE UPLOADED / DISPLAYED IN THE HOME PAGE ITSELF.;

7. Most of the Announcement in the home page is older for one to two years. All out-dated / old news should be removed;

8. Most of the students feel that getting information for their use is very difficult in the website;

9. The total website lacks from a standard font;

10. In Most of the link pages the color / fonts are different. Its like a website developed in 1980s; The total website lacks from a standard color;

11. The member’s logos are not available for download. Its there is few links but all it is in pdf file format. How can a member take the logo from a pdf file ?. Pdf file is only a reader formatted file. The logo must be made available for download in jpeg or gif file formats. In ICAI website members can download the logo in jpeg format and can be used in their printing stationeries;

12. Certain links (Members directory etc.) are running in Marquee (Right to Left) in Red Colour. Why it is been used ?. Today no professional sites uses marquee of this nature. It again Cleary shows lack of modern web awareness. It gives a child made look for the website.

13. Image Gallery is not updated. Only those images published in the CS Journal is included, that too only after the CS Journal in pdf format is uploaded in the website. The flash loaded page is not starting automatically. Most of the times the pictures are not running, and the page shows a very slow impression. In fact most of the visitors don’t know where is the image gallery ?. Its no highlighted.;

14. News about Chapters or Announcements from Chapters for ADP, SMTP (MSOP), TOP etc. is not readily available in the site. How can you expect a visitor to know the chapter news from linked folder ?.

15. Link to CCRT page is mis-spelt its written as CCGRT instead of CCRT. This error is for the last One Year. No one has corrected !;

16. See the link called ‘Communication from the institute’…You cant find any communication !. Please note that the link is in the home page. May be more than 100 people clicks this link every day…and gets disappointed !;

17. Press Clippings page is not updated. Recently various CS profession related news are published in new papers / websites. These are not shown in the ICSI website;

18. President’s Message is not shown in the home page. Usually it’s a good practice that the Presidents’ Message is hosted in the home page of the website on the 1st Day of Every Month, so that the visitors can know the plan / vision for the month;

19. Certain linked pages does not have ICSI logo, or even the title banner; (for example ‘Suggestions/Feedback page);

20. News and events page is completely outdated. There are various events across the Country which is hosted by ICSI Head Quarters, Regions & Chapters. This information is available on most of the students blogs, other websites etc. except in the ICSI website. In fact the public at large must know the Institute news from the ICSI website.


FEW SUGGESTIONS TO IMPROVE ICSI WEBSITE:


1. Totally the website should give a PROFESSIONAL OUTLOOK;

2. It should not be felt like child made site, rather it should give the visitor a feeling that ICSI is a premier Professional body;

3. A common / standard font should be used;

4. A common / standard color theme / scheme should be used;

5. Please avoid colors such as red or blue, as these colours are outdated for website use;

6. All the contents in the home page should be UPDATED REGULARLY. No compromise should be made;

7. All information which are 2 weeks old should be removed and parked in an Archive Page (so that students / members can retrive old data);

8. Main / Major Pages Links that may be displayed in a conspicuous place are: MEMBERS, STUDENTS (can be linked to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Online Portal), MEDIA / PRESS RELEASES, LATEST PAHOTO GALLERY, FEEDBACKS, FORMS FOR STUDENTS, EXAMS, ARCHIVES, DOWNLOAD LOGO, ONLINE PAYMENT, COUNCIL, TIE/UPS OR MAJOR MoUs, CS JOURNAL, CS JOURNAL FOR STUDENTS, SUBSCRIPTIONS, LATEST BOOKS & PUBLICATIONS, EVENTS / SEMINARS / CONFERENCES, CONVENTIONS etc.

9. Sub domains for major pages should be created and popularized. For example:


for events
events.icsi.edu

for Journal
journal.icsi.edu

for members
members.icsi.edu

for Books / Publications
books.icsi.edu

for Exams
exams.icsi.edu

for Results
results.icsi.edu

This will increase the image of the services of the ICSI. It should be popularized by printing the particular web address in particular services. For example in ICSI Books etc. a foot note should be added like “for details/orders please visit books.icsi.edu”

10. Latest pictures or photos about the ICSI events or Presidents’ Visit etc. should be displayed in flash mode in the home page itself. This will give the website a live look, and also a fresh positive feeling to the visitor; especially prospective students. In the Council page a Group Photo (with all members) of the present Central Council may be added, with a nice background.

11. As far as possible ICSI Conference, Convention and Seminar Photos to be used in the website. This gives a positive impression about the Institute for a visitor that ICSI holds lot of events and its corporate nature. A corporate power-point presentation about ICSI can be included in the home page of the website, so that prospective students / members can know the Institute, including history, statistics etc. in detail.

12. Presidents’ Message for every month must appear as a link on 1ST DAY OF EVERY MONTH. If this practice is followed after few months most of the students and members will wait for the 1st day of the month to read the Presidents’ Message, and it will become a habit, and it will create a virtual link between the Institute and the Students/Members;

13. Videos should be used in the website. If we see some Global University / Institutes sites, the Presidents’ Message is hosted as a Video, and the same should be made available in the home page of the website. It will give a more lively experience;

14. Major announcements from the ICSI should be constantly be updated. All announcements from the ICSI must first appear in the icsi.edu. If this practice is followed its sure that all students and members will regularly visit the website;

15. If possible major announcements for the students must be broadcasted as a video. Visitors will greatly appreciate this. For example any announcements on exams, syllabus etc. should be done by the President as a Video;

16. Member LOGO should be made available for download in JPEG OR GIF file FORMAT. (Now its in pdf format);

17. The feedback page should be more effective and simple, and a student or member should feel free to give his feedback, and a practice should be followed that for every feedback / suggestion a reply mail should be send. At least the words such as “thank you”…”we will look into it”…etc. should be given. One of the major complaint raised by many students / members is the Institute is not replying to emails. I suggest a Staff should exclusively be allotted for this job of replying to feedbacks, queries etc. submitted by members or students through the feedback form in the web site or by email. A system of taking polls / online votes can be introduced. This polls can be used to take feedbacks from students / members on specific issues;

18. The home page is the first impression about the Institute, it’s like seeing the face of a man / woman of whom we have heard more, but visiting for the first time. I suggest using theme pictures; flash loaded corporate images etc. and make the home colorful with a attractive theme. If we visit global site of professional institutes we can get the same positive feeling. There more than One Lakh sites which has a good appealing home page;

19. The headed banner / logo / theme header and footer must be same and similar on ALL PAGES OF THE WEBSITE. This is a must, it gives a feeling of reading a nice book having a good uniform layout on all pages;

20. All links to useful inner-pages such as presently available at Members / Students / Practicing CS pages shall be arranged as pull down model, ie: When we click on the main page links, the sub-pages must be shown as a pull down links, so that a visitor can select his needed page. Online version of CS Journal can be made available in the website every 15th of the month.

Further, online version of study material can be made available in the website, so that a students after registering need not wait for the books to be send by post. This request has been made by many students.
