Newsgroups (Also called Usenets) aren't as popular as they used to be and most internet providers are now charging for access. However, there are still free or cheap ways to access the groups. First you need a newsgroup reader or client. There is a free client for the Mac here and a free client for Windows here. Next, you need to be able to access newsgroups with the client. One free server is found here. Once you get on a news server, you can select what you want and subscribe if you want to bookmark it for future reference.
Newsgroups (Usenets) includes information and data not found on the web and can be a valuable tool. For example, ascii images found on the ascii newsgroup have their own page on IAD. Make sure you browse the Scarecrow images on that page. WARNING - Do not allow your students to browse newsgroup or usenet servers. Anyone can post on these newsgroups and they usually aren't moderated. You can almost always expect to see spam and other inappropriate posts there.
