In universities, worksheets, course details/notices and other important notices are e-mailed to group e-mail addresses, for example, all first year business students or all of first year computing rather than addressing it to each individual student. Tutors set up group e-mail accounts. All university e-mail addresses can be forwarded to home e-mail accounts.coeg egr seegegw oreg egk ineg foeg eg. If ICT were not available pupils would have to go into college to find the teachers when they could be using that time to study. They would have to keep checking noticeboards for important information. Weber enveloped cpfc121's realism . The Intranet is useful because anyone who has a username and password within the school or college can find announcements, messages and company documents. Most universities have a program called "Blackboard" where the students can find notes assignments, web page links, and past exam papers. They can also find information from off-campus. This is very important for 2nd and final year, and also placement year students.
