The media portal community continues to grow

Last weekend, the 5,555th visitor registered as a user of the media portal, setting a new record for the online portal for teaching materials. Closely following the 500,000th media download just a few weeks ago, it highlights the high acceptance the portal enjoys among teaching professionals. In addition to teachers, professors, education graduates and volunteer educators are registered on the site and use the teaching materials it offers. Currently numbering 2200 files, these materials cover all aspects of scientific, technical, social, and cultural subjects, and several media packages on communications technology are currently being added to the portal.

Thanks to its international orientation, the media portal is already used in 54 countries. The user interface is currently offered in German and English, and will also be available in Spanish by the end of the year. Cooperative programs with German and Austrian media centers are likely to significantly further expand the user community in the coming months.
