Getting Started on CEI

The Center for Education Innovations (CEI) is the largest virtual community and interactive knowledge hub for global education practitioners, organizations, donors, and supporters.

CEI was made for people like you, working on important education issues. Here are a few ways you can take advantage of the upgraded CEI platform:

  • Showcase your work: Join CEI’s dynamic database of individuals and organizations. You can easily create, customize, and update your individual and organizational profiles to keep others updated on your work. You can also share updates with the broader education ecosystem, including organizational announcements or blogs, new resources and evidence, or posting new opportunities for funding or collaboration. 

  • Search for resources, organizations, opportunities, and more: As a user, you can search the rich and growing database for what interests you – education knowledge, opportunities, resources, organizations, people, and more. Search by keyword, education topic, target geography, or post type.

  • Curate your news feed and weekly email newsletter updates: Follow organizations, topics, and regions to personalize your feed and newsletter updates with content that is most relevant to your work.  Simply click the blue “follow” button on the right side of any topic, region, or profile page and your news feed will automatically update with new posts from your followed pages.

  • Engage and collaborate with the community: CEI encourages connection and collaboration. Be an active participant to make the most of the CEI network. Individuals and organizations have the ability to collaborate through profiles and community pages around education topics, regions, and special initiatives (with new pages added periodically).  As a user, you can post public updates and questions, comment to engage in open conversations, and message other users privately.
