The purposes of this study are to describe some of the basic and practical services available on the internet, and to evaluate the efficacy of a lecture using the internet together with a traditional classroom lecture. Growing demands for better education and increasing amount of knowledge have brought up the need to use new methods in learning. Information and communication technology has given new opportunities and challenges in the field of education. Especially, the internet is creating information and communication spaces that are removing the traditional boundaries of time and location. It offers new ways to learn and communicate in the field of medical education. Medicine is a very suitable area to use WWW-based teaching, because a great part of it is based on visually learned topics. The internet carries vast quantities of information in all different formats and modalities such as text, figures, video and audio. Teaching and learning are complex processes, and a wide variety of techniques and facilities are needed for each student and subject, which may vary at different times. The internet will not, and should not, replace traditional classroom lectures or tutorials, but it dose have the ability to add value to these traditional teaching techniques and to make the life of the student and teacher a little easier, more varied and possibly more interesting. Preliminary results show that this kind of lecture is useful in teaching medicine, especially in self-oriented learning, but cannot replace totally a clinical teacher's share in the learning process. Feedback from the users shows that this education is widely used and needed. The internet is likely to play more important roles in many aspects of medicine in the future.
