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, portal was categorized into three main parts: About the ministry, education in the kingdom and 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 worldwide. 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 different parts such as student services, university services, cultural missions services and general services. The portal offers several interactive services to visitors, such as Q and A, recommended universities, technical support, surveys and questionnaires.
The team in charge of the portal, and the e-Services has 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.
Besides this, the team had also developed an internal portal for ministry's management and staff.
