because there has not been much research on the subject you cannot verify it. While this information is credible you may not be able to use it because you cannot find credible information to back up the research.

This term refers to any inequalities between groups in terms of access to, use or knowledge of information and communication technology. The divide inside countries, an example would be the United States, can refer to inequalities between homes, businesses, people, different areas and different demographic levels. While the global digital divide designates countries as the units of analysis and examines the divide between developing and developed countries in an international scale.

Therefore access is a very important condition for overcoming the digital divide. Even though some people might be capable of accessing the internet by barriers to enter such as a lack of means to infrastructure or the inability to understand the information the internet provides. Lack of knowledge is one major obstacle people have when it comes to using the internet. Having barriers limit peoples abilities in what they can do and what they can achieve with trying to access today’s technology. Removing these barriers will bring awareness to the person who is using the internet and give them the skills and capabilities as well as the awareness to move from being able to access the internet to using the internet effectively.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
