The web has opened universe access to information, today you can sit in your room and connect to people in China, Spain, Nigeria, Kenya, and USA or anywhere in the world. Presently if you are in business and your business is not on the web, your business and you will struggle.
Brief History about the Web:
The web started in 1989 with Tim Berners-Lee; Tim Berners wrote the first protocol for what becomes a world wide web. But on April 30th 1993 this protocol that was previously been used by the military and academics world became free and available for everyone. This really changed everything. It open universe access to information and caused it to just grow explosively.
There are lots of things one can do on the web today, among which is study online. Big thanks to Tim Berners and many who has contributed and who are contributing to making the world a better place to live in.
Studying online allow you the opportunity to sit in one remote village in Africa and study in any of the best Universities and Institutions in the world. There are lots of place to study online free on the web but I will lists the one have done some of their courses and the ones that am still in the process.
