Abstract- In this seminar, the importance of the University rankings were presented. The international University ranking, e.g., Ranking Web of Universities (Webometrics), and the National University Ranking, i.e., NUR, are very important to promote the culture of open source information, knowledge transfer and quality data. The seminar presented the history of Koya University achievement in Webometrics. The four Webometrics criteria were analyzed for Koya University. A self-assessment report was presented briefly. The seminar focussed on certain important points that Koya University teaching staff should consider to boost the University ranking and guarantee a quality teaching/learning.
