Content Syndication Program

ITDN partners can now seamlessly integrate ITDN™ database code directly into their own website. By doing so, web developers can provide access to ITDN data while retaining the look and feel of their web site. There are many advantages to "content syndication" as opposed to "linking" including the following:

Content Syndication Advantages
  • HTML access code resides on your web site
  • The ITDN logo is no longer displayed - you can use your own
  • Since extraneous, speed degrading graphics will not have to be downloaded, your end users will be much happier
  • As a developer, you will have control over visual aspects of forms
  • No data maintenance or server overhead is required on your end
  • You do not have to implement frames to make use of ITDN data
  • ITDN output is Section 508 and W3C compliant

Linking International Trade Education

lite logo A common concern from business owners is that today's graduates are not aware of the global marketplace. However, thanks to a unique Bryant College computer-based service called LITE (Linking International Trade Education), K-12 students and teachers have the opportunity to explore the many facets of the world economy by using the ITDN as their primary source of world information.

The LITE Program offers a variety of opportunities to build global knowledge at the K-12 levels. This is a program funded in part by the RI Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, the Educational Collaboratives, and Bell Atlantic.
