The World-Wide Web has become the driving force behind the continued and explosive growth of the global Internet. Hypertext and Hypermedia publishing on the Web is now a publishing medium in its own right. It's dynamic, open-ended, and available to anyone with a Windows or Macintosh personal computer, a modem, and a telephone link to an Internet connection provider.

This on line learning course will show you how to publish your information on the World-Wide Web, quickly and easily. You don't have to have any prior knowledge of this new medium, but you will be expected to have a working SLIP or PPP connection to an Internet connection provider, and know how to use the basic tools of the Internet, such as e-mail and ftp. You'll be shown the tools to use, and how they work, and you'll be encouraged to use them to follow your own interests, as you develop new publishing skills.

Now YOU! can become a global information publisher!
