Internet teaching offers a new medium to the delivery of education. While it has caused much anxiety in the teaching community, recent class comparisons show it to be superior in many facets. One of those facets is based on the ancient teaching idea of rhetoric in learning known as progymnastia. The internet medium facilitates the use of this old learning technique with much success and increased student participation. With strong teacher planning and coordination, the internet can become a real teaching tool for the future.
