Resources on the Internet

When learning to use the Internet it is quite common for students to feel somewhat overwhelmed by the amount of information available. This can be a barrier to utilising the Internet as an effective research and learning tool. However, with a little understanding students can quickly learn how to utilise the Internet to its full potential. Not only can the Internet open the door to governments, think tanks, international organisations, databases, statistical information and media organisations, but it also allows students to contact individuals, groups and communities, while participating in online discussions, chats and events.
