CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The term portal refers to a page that displays information from various sources in a unified manner. It could include services such as search engines, e-mail, news, information, databases, and entertainment. Enterprises can use portals to provide a consistent look and feel, as well as access control and procedures, for many apps and databases that would otherwise be treated as separate entities.

Electronic registration, often known as e-registration, web-based registration, or even online registration, is a secure website that students use to confirm their attendance for the upcoming (fall or sprint) rain or harmattan semester (Strauss, 2000). Students can use any computer with an internet connection to access the e-registration portal. The majority of these websites are portals. A web portal, according to Pena-Lopez (2007), is a site that serves as a point of access to information on the World Wide Web, and portals display information from a variety of sources. The term portal is defined by the Google directory as a place where users have control over the material. A portal is one of several terminology in library and information science, as well as in IT, that have been borrowed from other fields (Brakel, 2003). It’s important to remember that the Web, an Internet resource and a tool for browsing the Internet, was the first ever invention that allowed anyone to publish to a large number of people over the Internet. In this regard, a portal is more than a portal; it is a hub from which users can access all of the often requested Web material (Nielsen, 1999). The portal is a tool that organizations – universities, colleges, and businesses – can use to improve communication and other internal activities. To put it another way, a portal gathers a range of important information into a single, one-stop’ web page, allowing the user to avoid being overwhelmed by information overload or feeling lost on the internet (Looney and Lyman 2000 33). Internal corporate functions, on the other hand, are not the emphasis of the Internet (Internet gateways or libraries).
