Important considerations when using the Internet live in a classroom situation are:

1. Is the connection secure? Can you rely on it to work when you need it? If not, you could take a page that you need and either copy it into your whiteboard software or a Word document or save it as an html file. However, this will only copy the page and not the links from it to other pages, so this is not suitable if you wish to use the site interactively.

2. Plug-ins: Using content from the internet can be very useful but sometimes you may need extra software to help you access content. The following are free but will need installing before you use some files on the internet:
- Real Audio player. Plays sound files in the format .ram
- Flash: Plays content created in macromedia Flash. This often contains drag and drop type activities and / or sound.

3. Text Size: If you are using the internet for whole-class teaching, can the website be seen from the back of the classroom? Use View > Text Size > Largest to change this.
