My students would agree. I am working on an on-line tutorial [http://www.harper.cc.il.us/geg101/geoginet/mainmenu/mnmenufr.htm] for my World Regional Telecourse. I had the students in my Developing World class test the prototype for me and give me their comments (for 5 extra credit points). I had quickly added some links to related sites and most students commented that there was TOO MUCH. They suggested a shorter, annotated, list of sites that closely relate to the material covered in class.
I think students do surf, but they don't surf geography or class related sites.
My biggest frustration when I first got on the internet is that I couldn't find exactly the information that I wanted to use in my classes. I guess that's the purpose of the Virtual Geography Department. For example, sites on individual counrties are numerous, but there are few sites on individual realms or regions. Does anybody know of a good "Sub-Saharan Africa" or "East Africa" site?
