Abstract

Portal evaluation is an important component of successful academia industry know how programs. In this article, two portals that disseminated knowledge on green technology and historic furniture design are evaluated for overall quality. Interviews and a Web based survey were the major instruments employed. Data was collected from three groups associated with the platforms: administrators, faculty, and users. The results discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the platform, the benefits and drawbacks of online know how dissemination/communication, and several factors related to technology, platforms management, and clients management, including instructional design. This paper reports the findings from an evaluation of virtual platforms in the field of green technology and historic furniture design at Buckinghamshire New University, UK. These platforms data for this evaluation were collected during 2012. The findings emphasize the importance of technology and faculty in the platforms' success, and make recommendations for improvement.
