Using the internet for learning and research

Posted on July 23, 2010


Faced with information overload, we have no alternative but pattern recognition. -Marshall McLuhan. 18 May 2007

Our new Master of Exercise Science students are starting next week so we brought them in for a few introductions. As part of the induction Leigh and I thought we might run a short session on getting more out of the internet in terms of learning and research.

Whilst the internet appears all powerful and many times overwhelming, we went through with students some tips and tricks on how to get the most out of it. Importantly, there are ways that you can use the internet to make it work for you, making it easy for the information to come to you. These are the types of principles we tried to get across.

We created a record of what we discussed on using the internet for learning and research. Feel free to contribute.
