Academic Newsletter Generator

It has an easy to use single sign on control panel interface with four types of user roles – Author, Editor, Publisher and College Administrator for each registered college in the application to help colleges to publish the newsletter as a web page for online viewing and a can be printed for offline viewing and distribution.
The idea for this project, did strike because of a survey on the news percolation among students of all the activities in the various colleges of India conducted by us. Under that survey one thing that we felt was absence of a system through which a college or group of colleges can interact with each other so as to share students‘ ideas, their achievements, innovations, academic programs Conducted through a newsletter.
Instead of making use of printed newsletter to transfer information within various colleges, among parents, students, institutions can publicize their news on a single click and in no time through this application likewise new technical, social or Cultural events that are going to be conducted, achievements of their students in various fields.
The basic aim is to allow all colleges to share a common medium or application in order to generate their newsletter.
In similar way, here different colleges all across India can use a single application to interact with each other using a newsletter medium, for publicity, advertising and promoting their students. Also students from those colleges will also be benefited as they will come to know about recent activities in their college and in outside world.
From students perspective it seems to be like a system which enables them to promote their thoughts and express their opinions, skills and achievements in much simpler way with lot of convenience. Also they will get a faster & easier way to remain in touch with details & information about various activities of their institution as well as other institutions.

Why Windows Azure
In today‘s era of continuously improving technologies, cloud computing has emerged as a technology that can be used to hosting web applications. A cloud service has three distinct characteristics that differentiate it from traditional hosting. It is sold on demand, typically by the minute or the hour; it is elastic — a user can have as much or as little of a service as they want at any given time. Hence the underlying compute and storage resources scale automatically to match application demand such that the cloud application owner does not have to allocate resources manually.
