    A good question.

    I want to know how a websites like Ratemyprofessor.com can get the names of all colleges and professors and use the data to create an suggestion when typing in the search bar?

    Where would one start to add a similar feature to a website?

    On that website it seems to be based on user input. I love that site and have used it to make my education a much better experience!

    I once found that a teacher i had wasnt in their list of professors and it had asked me to create the entry for it. I have also noticed that our school seems to be in twice, once as the full school name and once using an acronym.

    My guess is if your teacher or school isnt there you add it. I may be wrong but that has been my experience.

    If your trying to set up a database of all schools in the US it may be already online somewhere but i have no idea where. Google may know?
