The Internet is the global system of interconnected computer networks that use the Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) to link billions of devices worldwide.[1] Fundamental Internet concepts include web browsers, search engines, email, social media, communications, networking, security, HTML, CSS, graphics and multimedia, web accessibility, JavaScript, database concepts, project management concepts, and related career opportunities.[2][3]

This course comprises 15 lessons covering fundamental Internet concepts. The first half of the course approaches the Internet from a user perspective. The second half of the course provides an introduction to web development. Each lesson includes a combination of Wikipedia readings, YouTube videos, and hands-on learning activities. The course also assists learners in preparing for CIW Internet Business Associate certification.
