Abstract

The Internet is the superior mean of communication and information dissemination in the new millennium. It is important to note out that searching for information on the Internet does not necessarily mean that some kind of learning process is going on. While the Internet dramatically changed the dissemination and sharing of information, there is no general consent among researches on the impact of the Internet on students and learners knowledge retention. U sing the Internet as a source of information, the students knowledge acquisition level and knowledge retention maybe affected for both the short term and long term. In light of that, this study was conducted to measure students retained knowledge by acquiring information from the Internet, and find how much of that knowledge was really retained at a later time.
