THE IMPACT OF INTERNET SOFTWARE PACKAGES TO THE MODERN SECRETARY. A RESEARCH PROJECT MATERIAL ON OFFICE TECHNOLOGY
This study is aimed at investigating the impact of the internet software packages to the modern secretary with particular emphasis on three selected organization in Kaduna Metropolis. Four research questions were presented out of the objectives and established for the study. A review of related literature was embarked upon. The population and sample size of the study was 120, the instrument used for the collection of data was the questionnaire and researchers observation. The question was designed for secretaries, executives and subordinate.

1.1 Background of the Study
The internet began as an experiment by the United States department of defense in the 1960s to help scientist and researchers from widely diereses areas work together by sharing scarce and expensive computer and their files. This goals required the creation of a set of connected network that would act as a co-ordinate whole.
According to Mborun (2007) the internet an the world wide web and its development technology as we have it today are contribution of scientist student and researchers each contribution at different time as the need arises.
In July 199, Learnard Kleinrock of Massachusetts Institute to technology (M.I.T.) http//www.mit.edu. published the first paper on packet swathing which is a technology that breaks up data into bits to enable it travel trough witching commuter network. The idea of packet switching was to allow more users to send text message over computer network.
Then in 1992 JCR Licklider presented his idea about Galelcltic network. This involves a global collection of computer in a huge net work so that each one could acess the data and programmes of others. This earned MLiklier the headship of the Defence Academic Researcher projects Agency. His mission according to a report was to maintain its technological superiority over her enemies in the impending cold war. From then on the idea of network computer for information sharing became important.
