Like computers, the internet strikes fear into non users, this in reality stems from a simple lack of understanding or misconception. Spending a few minutes here will hopefully dispel the myths and give the information, so when combined with practice you can confidently make full use of the world wide web.
These guides are aimed at those with little or no experience of the internet, as a result the technical language is avoided, except in the names of items or processes. (Do not worry if these names are new words to you).
Refresher guide to the web
It is also hoped it can be a useful refresher to those with experience, sometimes keeping up with technology can lead you to forget or overlook the basics.
By working through the guides or using an internet coach you will acquire a basic understanding of what the internet is, how it works and how to use it. From that point on, the world really is your oyster.
Do not forget to take advantage of all the upgrades, updates and useful applications along the way.
You can of course, take the 'click and see' method, but it is likely you will spend most of your time frustrated and disillusioned, lost in the information overload of cyberspace.
Happy internet surfing
