Intro to the Internet.
There are a lot of great
reasons to use the Internet. Heres a couple
of reasons why most people spend time on-line.
* Electronic Mail- Ask anyone
who uses it and theyll tell you life
wouldnt be the same without it . Electronic
Mail ( or E/Mail) is a great way of communicating
on the Internet. Not only can you send and
receive letters but you can also attach documents
( files, ect.) to your messages.
* Research - The Internet holds
an enormous amount of information from all
corners of the earth. You can access on-line
Encyclopedias, Libraries, Ect. to gain
information on almost any topic you might be
looking for. Once you find that information, you
can print it (as well as any pictures you might
see) or save it to a disk.
* Business - Look up telephone
numbers in an interactive phone book, access
competitor sites, track UPS of Fedex packages,
plan a business trip, or simply order a pizza
on-line. The list of things that could help you
at work is endless!
* Advertising - for a small fee
you can put your own company on-line! Advertise
your product where up to 50 million people could
have access to it.
* Internet communications -
Create a secure (employee only) Internet site
where you could store data and information useful
to your employees.
