Thanks for your comments, certainly you have experienced these kinda forumns more closely.....but let me share couple of points...

1) we have couple of mailing lists for NEDians to say in touch but most of the students are not aware of dat

2) web is the most effective way to share our thoughts (scholarship program: transactions can be made onlilne etc, mentoring forum: detailed profile of alumni with search capabilities and students can contact us)

3) online books, resources that can be added later....in fact that should be done by NED Admin but I dont think daz gonna happen in next decade

------------------------------------------------------------------------

So, my point is if we can create a web its easy to share with students and they can get any info they want from there (just one platform)

I know its a lot of effort and you are right you wanna figure out if its worthit.....which is perfectly alright BUT I THINK its worth trying

---------------------------------------------------------

Solution::: Can we suggest the web development as final year project for NED students?? Do you think this can do??

When I had time, I worked on that but I was depending on folks in karachi to register NGO / NPO but no one really wanted to do all the paper work and therefore I almost had to quit the idea....

Couple of students contacted me for scholarship but I really didnt have any good answer for them

-------------------------------------------------------

Bottomline::: These ideas are not new, all we need is a proper representation, that is accessible to students [we dont need to depend on any mailing lists, any other mode of communication, like notice board :) etc......just one single platform]

Looking forward to hear from you more on this

Take care,

Regards,
