THE INTERNET

The Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks that use the standard Protocol Suite (TCP/IP) to serve billions of users worldwide. It is a network of networks that consists of millions of private and public, academic, business, and government networks of local to global scope that are linked by a broad array of electronic and optical networking technologies. The Internet carries a vast array of information resources and services, most notably the inter-linked hypertext documents (web pages) of the World Wide Web (www) and the infrastructure to support electronic mail (email).

Most traditional communications media, such as telephone and television services, are reshaped or redefined using the technologies of the Internet, giving rise to services such as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and IPTV. Newspaper publishing has been reshaped into Web sites, blogging, and web feeds.

The Internet is a powerful tool that leverages one’s ability to find, manage, and share information.
The Internet service has enabled and accelerated the creation of new forms of human interactions especially through Internet educational forums.

It has provided an easy tool for communication amongst the institutional staff, students as well as between the institutional staff and students.
