From the outset of the Friendship
Through Education Program, the WWW has been a powerful tool to both share information
and enable teachers and students to identify programs fitting their interests
Between October 2001 and December
2003 the FTE WWW site received 3.3 million page visits, averaging over 4,200
page visits per day. The two peak months were March and April 2003. This is
significant because interest and use of the FTE site has continued over three
years--long after the intense media attention to the tragedy of September 11,
2001 had stopped. Further, it is clear that when the war in Iraq broke out,
it was FTE to which teachers turned for information on how to link with and
learn about countries with Muslim populations.
The FTE WWW site has been accessed
by persons in 141 countries.
Each FTE member organization
reported increased www page visits, as referrals from the FTE WWW site.
