The roles and history of information and communication technologies in environment and social development are explained. Basic protocols for Internet (Ethernet and TCP/IP) and its related protocols (SMPT, FTP, and HTTP) are then explained. The basic technologies of communication that are necessary for rural and Internet communication are explained. Internet services and their basic technologies, and the technologies which support web-based approaches are outlined. Finally, as an example of these technologies applied to development, we focus on e-learning.
