The two-day training organized by YSU Entrepreneurship Development Center was led by Emma Matevosyan, Head of the Department of Internet Resources Management and Services of YSU Public Relations and Information Department.
At the beginning of the meeting, the trainer presented the differences between the website, portal and blog. Speaking about YSU portal (www.ysu.am), Emma Matevosyan mentioned that it has more than 95 sites and subdivisions today: “YSU website has been operating since 2006, but due to the large volume in 2012, there was a need to make a larger portal, which was already ready in 2013. Since then, every website has its own admin.”
During the training, Emma Matevosyan also touched upon several mechanisms for the functioning of various websites, rules for posting photographs and more.
The statistics of ysu.am was also presented focusing on various sites. For example, according to GoogleRankPage, the portal of YSU has 7 points of possible 10. For comparison, Facebook has 9 points. At present YSU Portal visits are 14,400 daily.
“During the workshop, I heard a lot of things for the first time and learned a lot, even discovering that YSU Portal includes 95 sites (website design, some details of the work of the administration). Anyone who works with the site must know about all this. I learnt about the work of the programmers and the difficulties that may arise during the work,” - said Roza Khachatryan, a student of YSU Faculty of Journalism, participant of the course.
At the end of the training, participants had the opportunity to apply their skills on practice by posting materials on the site.
