The Confucius Institute Global Portal Has Been Upgraded
The Confucius Institute (CI) global portal, ci.cn, is officially rolled out after upgrading. All are welcome to join us on the platform to experience the new website.
The new version of the website has been optimized and upgraded in page design, interactive functions, column settings, and back-end build-up to provide all CIs worldwide with a platform that is more pleasant in design, richer in content, more comprehensive in functions, and more convenient to use.
01 Fresh page design
The CI global portal has a fresh new look, featured with a popular page design style and a more unified layout.
02 Upgraded functions
In terms of interactive functions, a CI information retrieval portal and a website information retrieval function are added in the new version of the website to optimize the user’s experience on the mobile terminal and to improve smoothness in playing videos and reading PDF files.
03 Optimized column settings
In terms of column settings, columns centering on the global CI network are highlighted on the homepage of the new version, allowing for faster and more accurate positioning and querying of the information about CIs worldwide. New columns, such as the CI Classroom, CI Salon, and CI Workshop, are released to present the information and activities of CIs worldwide more comprehensively. Moreover, the columns on sub-websites of CIs worldwide are more precise and compact.
04 Revised back-end
In terms of back-end build-up, the new version is featured with more straightforward operational guidance, more precise settings of templates, more intelligent checks, and a review of information; all combined to make it easier for CIs worldwide to maintain and operate independent sub-websites.
ci.cn has been completely upgraded. We are honored to invite all CI people to log in to this fresh new global portal, share digital teaching resources, and build a comprehensive platform together.
