Using the Internet to Create International Experiences for Students
Bradshaw, Larry L.
International Research and Review, v8 n1 p61-69 Fall 2018
The Internet is a high-speed communication link incorporating computers, networks and users throughout the world via TCPLP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) which allows dissimilar systems to interoperate (Krol,1992). This article presents how Iowa students participating in the international Internet experience learned how to access the Internet and become aware of the value of the speed at which knowledge can be obtained. These students were seeking information about studying and traveling abroad. The majority of the students felt they were ready for the challenge to assist their future employers to gain entry and travel the Internet highway. Instead of being limited by local perspectives, these Internet users felt they were becoming better members of the global community.
