NUSSU has expressed interest to make accessible its publication, The Ridge, on the World Wide Web.
With reference to our conversation on 5th March, 2000, the following goals have been identified:
In response to this, I propose ‘e-Ridge: an interactive online publication by NUSSU’.
Our Proposal and its Benefits
Improved Distribution and Readership
‘e-Ridge’ will be able to guarantee a larger readership since it will not only reach out to those within campus (as restricted by physical locations), but will be global in outreach. Further, if writers are sufficiently competent, potential employers may locate them through ‘e-Ridge’.
Having an electronic publication also implies that options can be made to email either the URL or the latest issue itself of ‘e-Ridge’ to NUS students, who in turn, can easily forward it to friends or other student communities. This will also prevent the physical location from being an obstacle to access copies of The Ridge.
