Abstract

The paper aimed to highlight acceptance and use of both major and minor features of the e-registration portal of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH, Ogbomoso, Nigeria, which empowers users to apply for enrolment, register for courses, search for information, meet requirements and other news as well as access other e-resources after signing in/logging in. It conducted a survey to assess students‘ perceptions of the LAUTECH e-registration portal. The study reviewed related literature and briefly discussed the transition from both manual application for enrolment, registration of courses by students which is paper intensive to e-application and e-registration. The study employed the quantitative approach and a questionnaire was used to gather information. The findings revealed that the LAUTECH portal was used mostly for course registration by the students who had a high perception of use of e-registration in comparison with manual registration but would like to access their grades, chat rooms, etc on the portal in the future. It recommended inclusion of additional features on the institution‘s (LAUTECH) web-registration portal as required by users and further studies into user requirements of web-based registration
