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: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
