Best eGovernment Initiative Award goes to Seasus

by Seasus / 01 Dec, 2013 / Published in | |

For the third year running, we take an award home at the MCA eBusiness Awards 2013  

The Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology (MCAST) Short Courses Portal, developed by Seasus, won the Best eGovernment Initiate Awards at the 3rd edition of the Malta Communications Authority eBusiness Awards 2013.

The main aim of MCAST’s part-time (evening) courses is to make lifelong learning accessible to everyone, even individuals whose family, work or other personal commitments prohibit them from training or working towards vocational qualifications through day courses.

In this regard, launching an online solution to enable prospective students to apply for these courses online is another way of making these courses more accessible – through the site, one can apply from an office or from home, at any time of day. An online application platform makes it easier for persons with accessibility difficulties to apply for MCAST short courses. It also helps in the administration of these courses as online applications involve less administrative and clerical work than receiving applications in person.

The website also makes it possible for MCAST to give prospective students full details of each of the 300 courses on offer in a convenient, environment-friendly medium – including all this information into a printed prospectus would involve much more.
