Swot is a community-driven or crowdsourced library for verifying that domain names and email addresses are tied to a legitimate university of college.
If you have a product or service and offer academic discounts, there’s a good chance there’s some manual component to the approval process. Perhaps .edu email addresses are automatically approved because, for the most part at least, they’re associated with American post-secondary educational institutions. Perhaps .ac.uk email addresses are automatically approved because they’re guaranteed to belong to British universities and colleges. Unfortunately, not every country has an education-specific TLD (Top Level Domain) and plenty of schools use .com or .net.
Swot is a community-driven or crowdsourced library for verifying that domain names and email addresses are tied to a legitimate university of college - more specifically, an academic institution providing higher education in tertiary, quaternary or any other kind of post-secondary education in any country in the world.
