Worldwide Classroom
http://www.worldwide.edu/

A CONTENT:
"A compilation of intercultural and educational programs around the world."

A AESTHETICS:
The graphics are almost nonexistent but the background has a texture to it that enhances the whole page. The map version for selecting schools is a little complicated but mapped very simply. Each continent brings up a larger, simpler map.

A ORGANIZATION:
The site is laid out very simply with only three basic choices available on the Home Page. Those links lead to more detailed, but well-organized pages.

A REVIEW:
The concept of the page is very broad but the information within covers most of the questions and topics associated with study/travel abroad. The Planning Guide section is particularly useful with external links to a large number of resources with topics such as air travel, documents and customs, forgeign languages and lodging/homestay. There is an enormous section for finding schools on the internet. The site also contains links to schools all over the world and institutions offering international programs. Anyone interested in travelling or studying abroad should check this page out!
