Here are basic advantages many students can get in the information superhighway so they would always give many thanks to the internet as being their “international library”.
• The internet as a worldwide library is free for all. This is the best advantage many students can get in the internet. Since it can be called the biggest worldwide library everybody all over the globe can access. In the past many students are deprived of many information and their research materials are only limited. Only those who have volumes of encyclopedias at home could always have good research whenever the professors give assignments especially in history, science, economics and mathematics.
• It easy to make research in the internet. When students would have to research for topics as part of their assignments, they can easily browse selected sources of information because they would just simply type the keyword in the search engine and click the “go” sign. Immediately in a just a matter of minutes all the information is displayed in front of them without the hassles of scanning the pages like they did in libraries. If they need to get hold of the full content they would just print it.
• Can easily get comprehensive report. When students are told by their professors to get comprehensive report of a certain topic they wouldn’t find it difficult to look for research materials liked they did in the past. The information superhighway could easily give them the comprehensive report the students need. This is how important is the internet today for many students. The assignments are made easy and could no longer be a problem.
• Internet gives equal opportunity for all. As far as usage of the information superhighway no one could ever tell he was deprived of the many opportunities available. Since everyone can make use of the internet as a good research tool there is really equal opportunity for everyone. In fact, many students in third world countries have gained access through the internet by knowing the many updates in other colleges and universities in the US and European countries, the same as with the students in developed countries.
