Back to Table of Contents 

There is an extremely wide variety of material on the Internet, ranging in its accuracy, reliability, and value. Unlike most traditional information media (books, magazines, organizational documents), no one has to approve the content before it is made public. The real task is to evaluate what is found and, in many cases, modify it to meet your needs.  This is especially true when looking for material for the adult learner

Thousands of websites were explored and not many were suitable for the ABE student without some modifications. Just as it is difficult to find print material that is high interest and low reading ability it is difficult to find internet material that is at the correct level and visually appropriate for the adult learner.

Some general problems were found:
