Gateway to educational information worldwide

18.02.2010
Portal "Education worldwide" now contains more content and an improved usability

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.

The German Education Server is a joint-venture service by the federal government and the federal states (Länder). Its co-ordinating office is located at the German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF) in Frankfurt /M. and Berlin.

The DIPF is one of currently 86 research and research-service institutes as well as four associated members of the Leibniz Association. The Leibniz Institutes address the scope of natural, engineering and world sciences as well as economic, social and space sciences and human science. Leibniz Institutes operate strategically and thematically on questions relevant to society as a whole. Therefore, institutes belonging to the Leibniz Association are jointly funded by the federal government and the states. For further information see: www.leibniz-gemeinschaft.de.

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
