"Navigating the Internet: Let's go Gopherin'" is a two or three
week, electronic mail, distance education course that will
introduce the new and intermediate user of the Internet to the
popular navigating tool--Gopher.

The Internet Gopher, developed by the University of Minnesota, is
a navigating tool that incorporates basic Internet services
into one easy-to-use program. File transfer and remote login are
simplified by Gopher; Gopher knows the remote machines' Internet
addresses, thus relieving the user of the tedious chore of
remembering and entering the sometimes encryptic Internet
addressing schemes.

This course will last for two or three weeks and will cover the
basic connections to a Gopher, look at selected Gopher sites,
create Gopher "bookmarks", and search "Gopherspace" with the help
of the powerful program--Veronica.

Information on different types of Gopher clients that are
available and their primary differences will be explained, and
installation and maintenance of a Gopher client and server will
conclude the course.

The course will consist of e-mail instructions and illustrations
that can be read and followed, or participants can save the
information to read at their own pace and location.

Dates: October 18, 1993 through the beginning of November.

Costs: Free
