Go on Educational "Tours" of the Internet
Internet: A Knowledge Odyssey offers tutorials and more on using the Internet.
Over 10 hours of educational multimedia "tours" cover the history of the 'net, its technology and how to utilize various access methods and network functions. Tours comprise some 2,000 screens, with pop-ups to explain complex topics and links to a glossary.
Along the way meet Dr. Vinton Cerf, president of the Internet Society or do practice simulations on the use of key sites.
Included Internet access software enables one-click access to anything on the CD, such as the Top 10 Sites or any title in the built-in database of 2,000+ sites, all reviewed and categorized. Richard D. Irwin, Burr Ridge, IL, (800) 323-4560, www.irwin.newmedia.com. WM
