Vice-Chancellor of Mangalore University T.C. Shivashankara Murthy launched the re-designed website of the university — www.mangaloreuniversity.ac.in — at a function at the university on Tuesday.

Addressing a gathering on the occasion, Prof. Murthy said the website was more user-friendly although there was scope for improvement. It had been designed in such a way that most of the information could be accessed by a single click.

He said the banner area on the homepage gave visual background containing photographs of the places on the campus. A search option on the home page made it easy to locate the desired information. Visitors could share their experience and give suggestions via “contact us” link.

Prof. Murthy said application forms and examination-related application forms were available on the site for downloading. He said that in the department section details of courses and teachers teaching them had been provided. So that parents of students studying in the university could know the qualifications of teachers teaching them.
