Who designs university websites?


#1

I was just looking at university of sargodha website and was appalled by its absolutely horrendous design and lack of usability. It's also completely dysfunctional because of programming errors.

Well, that's just one example. Go to any Pakistani university website and you'll be faced with horrible designs.

Who designs this garbage?

None of the pakistani university websites are even half as usable as the international university websites. Even LUMS website can use some serious work, as a matter of fact.

1. Under construction (as it mentions on top-left)

2. Requires intensive usability improvements.

3. Needs to be cross-browser compatible; should render find in all modern browsers at least.

Why can’t they use the expertise of their IT dept. professors to build something better, i.e. if they can’t get a good web development company to do it.
