GEO Passes 10,000 Entries
The Internet (2004-03-24)
At 11:15 pm today, General Education Online (GEO, http://www.findaschool.org) reached its goal of having 10,000 accredited entries in its higher education directory by the end of 2004, having reached 10,028 records. The goal was reached as part of an ongoing update of the now nearly 4,000 entry United States list, and does not include nearly 5,000 schools currently still in the addition queue for countries around the world.
In an amazing spurt of activity, GEO volunteers have processed 4,254 of the 9,102 pending addition requests in about 2 1/2 weeks. The number of submissions 2004 year-to-date is nearly quintuple the number of submissions for 2003, leading to turnaround times in excess of 3 weeks for some requests. Of the 4,254 addition requests processed so far, no more than 50% were added into the directory -- mainly this occurs from improper formating, submissions of unaccredited schools, and submissions of schools without web addresses.
General Education Online is a free and open resource database of links to higher education facilities worldwide for researchers, students, teachers, and others, hosted and sponsored by Simple End User Linux (SEUL, http://www.seul.org).
