Education is an investment. Most of the parents in the U.S. plan their budget in advance to guarantee their children higher education before they are even born. Really often, students suffer from the inability to pay a college loan after graduation. Why do people take such risks?
Because knowledge is power. It drives our world since like… forever? Educating is much more than just acquiring some pieces of information. Going through this process, you become another person and see the world with the same eyes but from a totally different angle. This is called progress.
The cool thing is we are living at the time when the technical progress affects more than ever on the personal one. The web spread information and made education more accessible throughout the entire world. You can barely surprise someone with a valid diploma that was certified online. Its quality is another question, but the fact is the Internet can be compared now to the most popular library one can access from home.
For those of you who are seeking for the way of creating a website for the personal educational project, you should consider that educational websites have own peculiarities.
Pick a Domain Name Restriction
Typically, you have two options when choosing a domain name restrictions - .edu and .com. The first one is commonly accepted among official governmental higher education establishments. If you are an independent educator and going to raise money with your website, the best choice for online profit businesses has always been .com.
Content Is The King
Your educational website design should be attractive. No question. Still, education is all about content and your site is the source of information. So think carefully on your learning materials demonstration to interest the future students.
