Politische Bildung Online portal was created in 2000 by both the German Federal and the Regional Agencies for Civic Education with the aim of enhancing and promoting civic and political knowledge and information to the German public. Its pages and contents – available in German only – offer a wide range of materials and sources about many political and social topics. The structure of this portal consists in different sections each providing a different kind of records. For example, online versions of federal and regional Politische Bildung agencies publications are fully available in pdf or html format, while newspaper articles and reports about current hot topics are offered with a direct link to the original source along with annotations and descriptions. Also some elearning materials are available, linked to specific online projects and mainly related to EU-topics, all described and available for all interested. A web-catalogue shows about 2,000 websites and sources classified by topics and carefully described with plenty of metainfo. Records are downloadable in many different formats, included many audio/video files. Access is completely open and free for all users. Printed versions of desired records can be ordered for free or purchased online. The overall outline is sophisticated but well designed and in compliance with W3C standards.
