The Internet Trainer's Guide Diane K. Kovacs The Internet is the latest word in information resources for business, education, and home users alike. But so far, very little has been written about teaching others how to use the Internet efficiently and cost effectively. Until Now. Diane Kovacs, an experienced Internet end-user trainer, provides a step by step, lesson-by-lesson guide to the design and implementation of an Internet training course. The Internet Trainer's Guide is packed full of practical information for Internet trainers. Kovacs outlines techniques to help instructors assess the baseline knowledge and skills of their students and tailor instruction to suit their needs. She also discusses a broad variety of teaching methods--seminars, lectures, and hands-on labs--with detailed guidance on the time required for each method, the anticipated instructional outcomes, and the technological requirements. The text also delves into the features of the Internet that today's students want and need to learn. This includes the complete range of Internet information resources--e-mail, Telnet, FTP, Gopher, and the World Wide Web; and the latest search and retrieval tools, including Archie and Veronica, and Web search tools, including WebCrawler?(TM) With a sample workbook and handouts for beginning and intermediate users. The Internet Trainer's Guide offers the comprehensive solution that today's Internet trainers need.
