This paper focuses on using the Internet for instruction in terms of World Wide Web-based software that project organizers or participants can use to facilitate a richer collaboration when using the Internet for inquiry lessons and that facilitates the process of developing on-line communities of learners. Knowing the potential use and strengths of this software enhances the knowledge of techniques and tools for those who wish to facilitate or participate in Internet-based instruction or an Internet-based community of learners. The following topics are discussed: (1) expected outcomes of using the Internet for instruction, including exemplary science instruction, Internet-based collaborative inquiry, and communities of learners; (2) software to promote collaborative inquiry or communities of learners; and (3) two Web-based project components and the "Forum" and "Links" software used to facilitate these processes, i.e., organizing and facilitating student-student or teacher-teacher interactions, and locating and using Web sites for the collaboration or inquiry process.
