I discuss the burgeoning World Wide Web and how it can be used to aid astronomy teaching.
I supply a list of a variety of useful Web sites.
The World Wide Web was invented 5 years ago at CERN, which is now translated as the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, as a way of aiding access to information from remote sites. The invention of graphic interfaces, notably Mosaic by a group at the National Supercomputer Center in Illinois and then Netscape Navigator as a private development by many of the original Mosaic people, led to an explosion in use of the Web. Millions of people around the world are now able to access information from over 100,000 Web sites.
There is much astronomical information on the Web, though that information make up only a small fraction of all the information available through this medium.
