Another category that benefits from the Internet in terms of personal relationships is those who prefer not to interact with others conventionally due to fear or a perception that going out
The wealth of activities and opportunities that are available to teachers online enhances what is available to them for use in the classroom. Teachers who are well educated will make the most use of the available internet resources. Additionally, the modern classroom does not have to be a physical location; it extends into the cyber world.

Although use of the Internet became common in the early 1990s, it
