The Internet is with no doubt one of those things that every human finds very important to reach every moment of the day, anywhere in the world. In this essay, it will be showen in details how the Internet influence two of the most important issues in today's society, education and entertainment. Also, it will be discussed how the Internet can bring future change to some of the poorer countries in the world and other fields, apart from education and entertainment.
In the education field, The Internet gives dedicated learners all the tools needed to become excellent students, to improve the tutition and to reach their university degree easier. However, The Internet is revolutionizing education in many aspect. Higher education fees are increasing and people are facing crisis and anxiety if they want to continue studying. They think that one way to do it, is to sign up for an on line university course. With this, they do not need to go to university buildings and they don't need to pay the transport or the accommodation fees. Instead, they choose to study comfortably in their owns bedrooms and still be able to get a degree. The internet is a wonderful tool.

Compared to the student life 20 years ago, it is definately a massive change. The future is unreachable. Many researchers agree that the internet will facilitate getting a degree without going to university buildings.
Ten years ago in April 2001, Charles M. Vest, the MIT President at the time, announced that the university would make its materials for all its courses freely available on the Internet. This initiative, found at Open Course Ware, has enabled other teachers and lifelong learners around the world to listen and read what is being taught at MIT. Five years later, in April 2006, UC Berkeley announced its plan to put complete academic courses on Apple’s iTunes U, beginning what is now one of the biggest collections of recorded classroom lectures in the world.
