In class professors are using the Internet to upload lectures, notes, or other useful material. Students in class can then access the information outside of class, and even interact with the professor or other students regarding the content. Even if a class is missed, the notes are readily available to keep students up to date. Certain professors will even add video, or keep a podcast of their classes for download. One benefit the Internet brings to college is the availability of textbooks for significantly lower prices than are available at the on campus bookstore. Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and Borders all sell new and sometimes used textbooks for a fraction of the cost. Some websites such as, BigWords, and eCampus have devoted their business entirely to selling used textbooks at big savings. The website TextSwap offers a free service where textbooks from completed classes can be offered and exchanged for textbooks needed in an upcoming semester. By far the most useful aspect of the Internet is the vast amount of information that is available about even the most obscure research topics. The days when students trekked to the library and searched for days in the stacks of books for one elusive volume are over. With a carefully crafted search phrase a wealth of information will appear immediately, saving time when writing essays and research papers. These are just a few of the Internet resources that adult student have available to them. That is why it is important for adult students to understand and embrace the new technology, conquering any fears, and making the services work to their advantage. Article Source:
