Personal Computers for Students

Week 1: Internet

What is the Internet?

• The Internet is a network of computers from all over the world. Businesses, governments and people share information on the Internet. The Internet has new information every day. To read information on the Internet you need a program such as Internet Explorer or Netscape. In this workbook, we will use Internet Explorer.
• There is usually a lot of information on a web page. You don’t need to read all the information. Look for the big words or color words – these are usually the important words.
• Companies buy advertising space on web sites. Most web sites have a lot of advertisements. It is easy to click the wrong place and go to another web site. Be careful where you click.

• The Internet can be very slow. Sometimes it takes too long to connect with a web site. If this happens, go to the next activity. Don’t wait more than a few minutes.
• Web sites change often and some disappear. If this happens with the web sites in this workbook, just go to the next activity.
