Internet - Overview
With abundant information at our fingertips, it is critical that you conduct effective web searches yielding quality information. As more and more of the work today is done online, IT professionals need to be well-versed in the latest web browser software and able to optimize the features of a variety of browsers.
The word "cloud" is a metaphor for the Internet. When users diagram their network and want to show the connections to the Internet they use a "cloud" shape. The Internet has evolved from a collection of websites to a launch-pad for applications that run in the "cloud".
To be successful in school and in your career, you need to be proficient in using the Internet to find quality information and to effectively use cloud-based applications.
