This paper is intended to examine the use of modern technology, into the acquisition and transfer of knowledge, using resources from the World Wide Web (WWW) in higher education. It will also serve to determine whether this new way of accessing knowledge is a beneficial tool in aiding students to a higher level of achievement, because they are more engaged in their learning activities. The Internet has the ability to remove all geographical and time barriers so that students can continue their learning long after leaving the classroom or graduation from the university. The WWW is now causing educators, from pre-school to graduate school, to rethink the very nature of teaching, learning, and schooling.
