Abstract:

Any information system that is developed without considering the needs of the user fail to achieve the goals for it stands. Considering that view, the design of a User-centered bilingual website was done as per ISO 13407 guidelines for strengthening the cyber extension activities of the Directorate of Extension (DoE), Kerala Agricultural University (KAU). A user-centered design (UCD) of the website optimizes it around how the end-users want, or need to use it, rather than forcing them to accept it. The website thus developed after prototyping can be a better tool for agriculture extension. This study came up with an eight step protocol (sequential steps and procedures) for the development of a user-centered website, which can be adopted for the future works in the same line.
