Abstract

Regular and easy access to the Internet is an increasingly important tool to assist students to seek information and learn to write and do research. Lizzy Mabotja and Andrew Paterson analysed findings from the 2011 Census and found disturbing evidence that the overwhelming majority of black African students are highly disadvantaged in this regard.
