This report describes the implementation and acceptance of an electronic syllabus on the World Wide Web (WWW). The greatest potential of a teaching home page on the Internet lies in a synergy effect of three domains: WWW pages serve as administrative tools, as powerful research instruments, and as a tool skill to prepare students for their careers in public or private institutions. This article uses the empirical example of an electronic syllabus to illuminate potentials, problems, and the acceptance of the Internet as an extended sociology classroom by students.
