This provides an excellent series of modules for introducing beginning sociology students to the research relevance of the WWW.  Has several major learning activities per module that ask students to answer questions about sociologically relevant issues by going to given websites.  Very useful as a supplement to intro sociology text.

Technical Remarks:

Works well re hypertext links except for last two modules.
