National Forum on Information Literacy [online]
The National Forum on Information Literacy was created in 1989 as a response to the recommendations of the American Library Association's Presidential Committee on Information Literacy. These education, library, and business leaders stated that no other change in American society has offered greater challenges than the emergence of the Information Age. Information is expanding at an unprecedented rate, and enormously rapid strides are being made in technology for storing, organizing, and accessing the ever-growing tidal wave of information. The combined effect of these factors is an increasingly fragmented information base, a large component of which are available only to people with money and/or acceptable institutional affiliations. In the recent past, the outcome of these challenges has been characterized as the "digital divide."
TONIC: The Online Netskills Interactive Course. [online]
Welcome to TONIC, a course of instruction on using the Internet produced with support from ITTI and eLib. The Online Netskills Interactive Course is an easy-to-understand, structured course, offering step-by-step, practical guidance on major Internet topics, ranging from basic through to advanced. The course as a whole is intended for beginners to networking, who have some familiarity with computers.
The content of the course
The course provides an introduction to the Internet and computer networks in general, describing and illustrating the main software tools for navigating the networks. However, these tools are only a means to an end, the end being the wealth of information and communication resources offered via the networks. The course looks at types and examples of networked information, at the means for searching that information, and at the communication facilities and resources on the net.
TONIC has been developed for the UK higher education community with central funding. It may currently be used freely for non-commercial academic purposes. Netskills reserves the right to change this access policy.
The course uses the World Wide Web (WWW) as medium because it is one of the most widely-used Internet services which most people will encounter, and because its flexibility makes it a great learning tool. You will be using a WWW browser to access the course.
To work through the course, you will first need to register. Registering means that the server keeps track of your position in the course, so that if you resume the course within 31 days of first registering, you will be taken to where you left off in your previous session. If you choose to do the self-assessment tests, you'll also be able to check on your running score. This enables you to see how well you are progressing.
When you first register, you'll be asked to provide a couple of details about yourself. This is to enable the maintainers of TONIC to see the general pattern of usage of the package, and to see how well the different modules work. These details will only be asked for once.
When you finish a session with TONIC, you can simply close your browser or visit another site entirely. When you wish to restart the course, enter your login name again (from the selection below) and you will be automatically taken to the last page you were viewing.
