ABSTRACT

Web-based Education is becoming very popular in India at every level of education, which can be attained through online websites or Educational Web Portals. Educational Web Portals provide a variety of eBooks, articles, journals, research papers, online courses, and other educational resources. In this paper, we will discuss the utilities of Educational Web Portals in higher education and evaluate a different type of web portals that provide different options of learning in the Higher education field. This study is based on the experiences students and scholars who are the part of a Facebook page community from all over India and they are engaged in Web-Based Learning and help each other through online communication. The experience for English speaking scholars is different from non-English speaking scholars. The scholar coming from a non-English speaking background does not get the same quality of online resources as English Speaking Scholar has. This is a challenging problem and the researcher dwelled deeper for the solution. The researcher will discuss possible solutions to overcome this problem. She will suggest creating a glocal web portal which can be a bridge between the content creator and a learner in their local language. Such Glocal Educational web portals will help the non-English speaking scholars and will enhance researches at the local level.
