Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to explore the current status of the web sites of the Faculties of Education (FOEs) in Turkey. Bearing this in mind, a "Web Site Assessment Form" comprising thirty-seven items was developed and the web sites of the FOEs were evaluated with respect to "Content", "Currency", "Structure and Navigation" and "Visual Design" categories. The study was administered using a survey technique in sixty-seven FOEs affiliated to The Council of Higher Education of Turkish Republic.
