Robert E. Kahn and Vint Cerf have changed the way people learn, work, and interact with each other through the invention of Transmission Control Protocol and Internet Protocols which were the main inventions that lead to the development of the internet. The internet has affected how we learn, how we communicate, how business works, and how our brain works. Before the internet, people always had to learn face to face or reading from a book. Classrooms were normally very hands-on, and if the teacher assigned a project, scheduling with a partner to work on it is impossible. After the internet, there is more access to information as said by Purdue University. Purdue University is a public college that is talking about how the internet has changed how people learn and access information since the internet was made. However, in many ways, technology has profoundly changed education. “...technology has greatly expanded access to education. In medieval times, books were rare and only an elite few had access to educational opportunities. Individuals had to travel to centers of learning to get an education. Today, massive amounts of information (books, audio, images, videos) are available at one’s fingertips through the Internet, and opportunities for formal learning are available online worldwide through the Khan Academy, MOOCs, podcasts, traditional online degree programs, and more. Access to learning opportunities today is unprecedented in scope thanks to technology.”(“How
