MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this investigation was to conduct a content analysis of the websites of schools of higher education that play a role in supplying tourism enterprises with staff. With this aim, the websites of 102 advanced vocational schools and 30 universities were analysed using an evaluation form comprising 45 items. The findings of the survey showed that the websites of state universities are more functional and have more features than those of private universities. It was also found that the websites of the schools providing tourism are independent of their institution. These sites are generally designed and updated by the lecturers. The fact that most websites at universities providing tourism education do not have a foreign language option, nor enable their usage to be personal, is also noteworthy.
