The Ministry of Higher Education is upgrading the polytechnic system in order to make it the first choice among candidates interested in furthering their studies. On July 2010, three polytechnics have been promoted to premier polytechnics which are generally of higher standard than the 24 conventional polytechnics. Besides better re-branding exercise along with more dynamic curriculum and training, public exposure is the way to go if students and people are to know what are being offered by the polytechnics. One way of disseminating this information is through websites that are interesting and deemed as useful to users. This research focuses on identifying the usability criteria for assessing the three premier polytechnics’ websites. There is currently no research done in this area. It is a command perception that unstructured website design or layout would impede the process of information dissemination. The contribution of this paper is to identify the best website design among the three premier polytechnics and identify the criteria to be tackled for designing high usable website.
