A TED-Ed Animation Explaining the World Wide Web

A recent TED-Ed animated lecture, based on a lesson by educator Twila Camp, explains what exactly the World Wide Web is, how it is different from the Internet, and a number of nuances about the Web like hyperlinks.

Twila Camp describes this interconnected information system as a virtual city that everyone owns and explains how it’s organized in a way that mimics our brain’s natural way of thinking.
