This site is intended for use as an educational directory of sites on the World Wide Web.  With just a few exceptions, most of the sites listed above can be viewed free of charge.  Sites like Britannica and the Wall Street Journal offer free trial periods, whereas all the rest of the sites listed in the main are free.  Pay sites are designated with an asterisk (*), but there are so many good sources for information that we shouldn't have pay for anything.  Enjoy it while it lasts.

The initial statements appearing on this page are intentionally offered to thwart ads for "term papers," and such. I do not endorse plagiarism.   

Web-based Training

Will all the tech skills you learn today be obsolete in two years' time as some say?  Probably not, but you still might want to check out Executrain's web site on the University of Kentucky's server.  You can use Executrain for free if you're a student, staff member or faculty at UK.  Executrain's not a bad place to begin if you're interested in getting the training to pass a C++ certification test or beyond.  You can get training for certification in 400 areas, including everything Microsoft.  

Go to UK's Information Systems or Desktop Training pages to find out more.  It's well worth it for those lucky few who have the discipline and the time to conduct web-based training.  You'll need a login, which you can obtain through Desktop Training Services.

Know of a good site?  Recommend changes or additions?  What follows are links to pages and sites that I've come across in the last few years.  Some have been included for former students.  Others appear for their interest and uniqueness, but I suppose a disclaimer is in order: I've listed these sites as references for the purpose of academic discussion and open debate. So don't get the wrong idea: I don't necessarily endorse or challenge any of the beliefs present in the names, titles, or articles appearing below  Please bear in mind that this list is continually developing.  Everything listed here falls under the general heading of public domain, meaning it can be freely accessed by individuals with an internet connection and can be used in an intellectual or educational context without fear of criminal prosecution. 

Cyberlaw Journal Although a lot of educators consider the web to be a place of of eternal searches, a never-ending quest for relevant data and information, it's my aim to categorize information in a way that can be readily accessed.  Questions?  Comments?  Criticisms?  Refer to the link to my email below.  Happy browsing.
