Website name: De La Salle University - Manila

Website URL: www.dlsu.edu.ph

What makes this website outstanding:

De La Salle University - Manila is one of the best school here in the Philippines. The University also received the highest ranking among Philippine private universities in a recent global survey conducted by the Times Higher Education Supplement (THES), a London-based newspaper, and Quacquarelli
Symonds (QS), an international education and career development group. (More info: http://www.dlsu.edu.ph/offices/mco/publications/2401/20061106.pdf)

Right now it is the only University website in the Philippines that conforms to the web standards and accessibility issues.

Currently, this is the 8th version of web site design & development for DLSU-Manila since the first one was uploaded on the gopher server on December, 1994. Most of the pages use Microsoft's Active Server Page (ASP) and the advanced ASP.Net technologies.

Xavier School - A Nomination
http://web.xs.edu.ph/

One of the most amazing things with the web is how it creates community. Today, with the advent of Web 2.0, the web is wove not by single individuals nor an office, but by readers of the content themselves.

The Xavier School website is such an example. Long before other school sites featured contributions from its community, the Xavier School website has its community weaving its web. Not only was the XS web formed from an already lively and energetic community, but it created a new online community as well -- bringing more Filipinos to be, digital.

Perhaps it may be said that while Xavier School may only be a K-12 institution, with no single office dedicated to managing the site, people came together to weave this CMMA-winning site, innovating for our country and for the world.

Website Name: Foundation University, Dumaguete City, Oriental Negros

Website URL: http://www.FoundationU.com

What makes this website outstanding?

Foundation University’s website is just what a university website should be. It’s slick and simple design and layout makes the page load faster. Unlike other flashy sites with all the bells and whistles, information is given to the user in an instant. The site provides several sections that provide relevant information to students, teachers, parents, alumni and site visitors. The FORUM section is the most active and most participated section which is intended to allow members of the University community, alumni as well as guests to interact with us by way of sharing their opinions, suggestions, concerns, feedbacks and comments on relevant issues and matters pertaining to the University with the aim in view of providing a venue for the sharing of information and ideas to facilitate academic development in an environment of open communication through ICT. This service is an added feature to compliment and supplement the University's Program of Uncompromising Personalized Attention (PUPA).

But what makes this website really outstanding are the online services that it provides to the members of the University community. Now, students from far away cities or provinces can enjoy their entire semestral break or summer vacation without having to cut it short just to travel and enroll. They can now do it anytime, anywhere as long as there is Internet access. Faculty members also enjoy the same privilege when submitting their grades.

Foundation University is the first and only university in the Visayas and Mindanao region, or probably the only one in the entire country, to successfully develop and implement an array of fully automated Online University System such as Student Evaluation System, Online Enrollment System,and many more. Such development helps speed up processes and has indeed made University life at FU more convenient.

Here is a complete list of the online services provided by the website:

The website is using Open Source technology and hosted locally on a Mac OS X Serve. The FU Dev Team of Foundation University develops all applications. Their main goal is to make things easy and simple.
