Common Ground: A Cross-Cultural Self-Directed Learner's Internet Guide.
This guide is intended for use as a customizable resource for helping people understand how to use Internet tools and resources. It presents hands-on exercises and resources ranging from general overviews to in-depth exploration. Following an introductory section, this guide presents information in four successive levels of self-empowerment: Level One: Becoming a Self-Directed Learning; Level Two: Self-Publishing Globally; Level Three: Building Learning Communities through Mentoring and Collaboration; and Level Four: Global Citizenship and Enlightened Expectations. Level One includes a list of "mini-tours" of the best Web resources on key topics and a checklist activity on Internet searching basics.

Level Three focuses on building cultural learning communities, and presents information on the 10 top Internet collaborative tools as well as information on online courses and learning pathways.
