From South Africa to Finland, from Venezuela to Japan, The TES's newly launched Internet edition is already being read by a remarkably cosmopolitan audience.
Within two working days of last week's launch, more than 1,500 people had registered to use The TES Internet site. Although the majority of these were from Britain, the registrations included readers from 46 other countries, covering five continents and including such Times Ed bastions as Peru, South Korea, Hungary and Egypt.
Readers in Scotland have also been able to view current job advertisements.
The interactive nature of the site has also been thoroughly road-tested by these first-week users, with more than 100 e-mails received containing comments and questions.
The site includes a discussion area, the Internet Staffroom, and this was receiving contributions from teachers and lecturers within hours of the first Internet edition being published.
The TES Internet service will be free for the first few months of this year, and the number of users looks set to rise.
As well as reading stories from the current edition of the paper, the first visitors to The TES site have been making use of the extra features which will be subject to a subscription fee in the spring, such as links for subject teachers, directories of education information, curriculum documents and an archive of news and reviews from back issues of The TES.
