   Britannica is one of the most renowned and resourceful encyclopedia that can provide creditable and valid information organized by experts in different areas other than any other search engine. Britannica Project Starlight Taiwan has two major purposes. One is  to help teachers and students all around the world have a much easier access to the most accurate and pinpoint information classified according to subject and level. The other is to help all teachers incorporate computer technology in their authentic teaching without worrying about any plagiarism or violation of intellectual property rights.



   The Education Bureau has already signed a contract with Britannica, allowing all the teachers to surf their websites using the Internet access within your schools, and you don't have to sign up for anything to gain a full-scale access. But, please note that if you want to try their websites at home, you're going to need a temporary username and password, which varies month by month, and it'll be provided by the manger and posted on this website. 

   Everybody knows that the resources are just out there on the Internet, but the problem is where to find them and how valid they are. As an English teacher, we are all required to look for intriguing and authentic materials online from time to time other than the mundane and repetitive textbooks. So, why not give it a try and apply what you found to your own classroom?
