The internet has truly revolutionized education. Many high schools and colleges offer online classes, and people with all types of skills and interests find others eager to learn what they know in chatrooms. With a world of information available, education becomes infinite. Educators face new challenges in this contemporary environment. If you are teaching a course online, want to join a class, or just want to talk about it, IRC offers many interesting chats. IRC is also a great place for students to meet during the school year, to form study groups, help each other with homework, and discuss the days events... and its perfect for keeping in touch during summer vacation and breaking the boredom of snow days. Alumni groups as well have settled on IRC, keeping friendships alive as classmates move far away and form families of their own.
