In addition, in comparison to educational school programs that require fees, Internet provides more information and online programs that are free and affordable for everyone. Learners may find it easy and inexpensive thus improve knowledge.

  The learning process can take place anywhere as teachers and students these days know how to use a computer and have their own each at home.

Besides that, transferring information can be done directly from teachers to students via email. It allows learners to work anywhere in a conducive manner at their own pace and thus increase student’s performances.

   Students that have been exposed to the use of computers and technologies may perform well than those are not.

For instance, the use of LCD in most schools is an interactive access to information as teachers use it to teach lessons using visuals and sounds. Accordingly, makes the learning process interesting and increase the participation of students in class. Teaching and learning will move from formal instruction to self-construction and discovery by the students themselves.
