Ministry of Education has recently launched its English portal, which was developed by using modern portal management technologies. For the ease of access to the content the portal was categorized into three main segments:
- About the Ministry
- Education in the Kingdom
- Education Abroad
Sub-categories were added to each category to guarantee easy and quick access to the information. The homepage was designed with keen interest to adapt the latest web design technologies. Drop-down menus were added to the homepage for a quick navigation in all portal categories.
In a bid to promote e-Governance initiatives, Ministry of Education highlighted a section on its portal for quick links to its e-Services. These links were categorized in four different sections:
- Student Services
- University Services
- Cultural Missions' Services
- General Services.
The portal offers following interactive services to visitors:
- Q & A
- Recommended Universities
- Technical Support
The team in charge of the portal and the e-Services also developed the websites of the Saudi Arabian cultural missions around the world, for improving the communication between the cultural missions and Saudi students abroad. As well as to introduce Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its culture to people of other countries through these websites.
Additionally, the team also developed an internal portal for ministry's management and staff.
