Composition of the Website
As specified in the introductory pages, the news categories that are approached by the website encompass small events, such as school redesigns or student awards, to even greater events, such as merging of important scientific departments of prestigious institutes or even breakthroughs in the technological advancements which are promoted by the leading scientific universities of the world. There is no event or action that is too small or too large to be covered by the website and this belief has represented the core concept entailed by the journalists working round the clock at the site, ever since the website was formed.
When dwelling even deeper in the presented news categories, the readers can see that the website is focused more on the impact that the presented events have on the local or international education scene, rather than the event itself. For instance, if a world renowned university decides to move its entire grounds and departments to another location, might be the subject of a breaking news story, although, on the bigger education scale, such a maneuver wouldn’t have too many implications for the other academic “actors”.
However, if the same university decides to change its approach vis-a-vis gender equality and begins to promote its new policy, this is an event that has implications worldwide, as all of the other universities and education institutes now have a trend that might be their new target.
Regarding the types of education institutes that are covered by the website, there are of course, the high-end universities and institutes all around the world, which emphasize the highest standards when it comes to education and then there are also the mid to low-level education institutes and facilities, such as local colleges and gymnasiums, which might have events or even results which put them high on the education scene worldwide. With the overview information, it is incontestably evident that this website is actually over-the-top
