Relatively few people are skilled enough with the various tools provided by the Internet to fully exploit its power. Mastery of those tools can turn the Internet into a potent ally. Currently, no tutorial exists nor is any formal instruction provided relative to the Internet. This thesis reports the results of designing and evaluating an Internet tutorial to alleviate this deficiency. This tutorial was designed for Naval Postgraduate School students who also evaluated it. In a pre/post pre-experimental design, surveys assessed users' familiarity and competence with the Internet before and after employing the tutorial. Results show that a 59 percent improvement occurred in student ability as a result of using the tutorial.
