Development of the Web has affected different aspects of our lives, such as communication, sharing knowledge, searching for jobs, social activities, etc. The web portal as a gateway in the World Wide Web is a starting point for people who are connecting to the internet. The web portal as the type of knowledge management system provides a rich space to share and search information as well as communication services like free email or content provision for the users. This research aims to develop a web portal for students in the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology (FCSIT), University of Malaya (UM). The main aims of this portal are to provide information for the students to help them to choose the right courses and major that are relevant to their intended future jobs or career in IT. Two surveys were conducted to identify the students‘ problems with the existing portal of the faculty and to gather their requirements which can be incorporated in to the new portal to be developed. The portal was developed, using the Web Information System Development Methodology (WISDM) and using the development tools that include: ASP.Net and C# for the programming, Visual Studio 2008 and Photoshop for the interface design, Information Internet service (IIS) for the web server and SQL Server 2005 as the database management system. This knowledge system connects to the industries and acts as an online recruitment to support the students to find the right IT job after graduation. Furthermore, this system enhances the understanding concept and importance of the web portal, uses of knowledge management system and knowledge sharing as an essential educational tool for students in the universities.
