Gateway to educational information worldwide - Portal "Education worldwide" now contains more content and an i18.02.2010 - (idw) Deutsches Institut für Internationale Pädagogische Forschung
The information portal "Education worldwide" now contains more comprehensive, up-to-date contents and a more flexible, user-friendly browsing structure. This progressive step is based on the integration of the portal - which is provided by the German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF) - into the association of portals of the German Education Server as well as a relaunch of the portal's technology and design. "The portal offers well-structured professional information regarding international developments in education at a glance, addressing research and practice", explains Gertrude Cseh, academic staff member at the DIPF, who is responsible for "Education worldwide".
As one of its new features, "Education worldwide" now collects selected international information from seven fields subsumed under the heading "Topics": General Information, Early Childhood Education and Care, School Education, Vocational Education and Training, Higher Education, Adult Education and Science/Research. Moreover, users can access diverse databases, including "Education Systems International", the renowned "German Education Index" and the documentation of newspaper articles on education. These databases provide the framework for subsuming different information resources, including print media and online resources, under the umbrella of the information system. Topics are presented in depth in the dossiers supplementing the information service.
The site is transparently structured into three columns. The left-hand column provides access to the topics, databases and dossiers. In the column in the centre, users will find current information on the homepage of the portal while the space represents respective contents on subordinate pages. In the right-hand column, "Education worldwide" presents links to numerous external services. Searches can now be conducted across the entire information service. Nevertheless, users can still limit their search queries to selected databases, topics or educational domains. The browsing structure and help texts are available in English, French and German.
