Module 1: What is the internet?

The internet plays a very important part in our everyday lives. It has made tasks much less of a burden, while also expanding our abilty to accomplish more. With improvements such as communticating with people from all around the world, as well as ordering things online from the comfort of your own home.

But how does it work? Well the Internet is a global network of physical cables and while it may be simple for us to use or gain access to, it is a very complicated process that can somehow take seconds.

Module 3:connecting to the internet

There is a wide variety of internet services available such as dial-up, DSL, satellite, and more. In order to gain access to WiFi you need to purchase a modem and a router. These are both hardware devices that are essential for a proper connection.

module 6:Understanding hyperlinks

Hyperlinks or links are used to navigate the web, they can help direct you to a page easily. They resemble addresses because they direct you to the location you are heading to. Links can be different colours or made bold in order to indicate that it is a link. You may also notice that your cursor becomes a hand when it is over a link. In some cases links can allow you to download a file.

Internet safety

While the internet is extremely useful and many people have adapted to being dependent on it, it can be very deceiving. Many people online can pose a threat to not only your online safety but also your safety in the real world.
