What is it?

An intranet is like a private version of the internet, using the same standards and access methods. It may in turn be connected to the internet, but may require authorisation for access (in this case it may be called an extranet).

Intranet refers to a private website that is used by an organisation or business to connect all staff so that they can log in and access news, information, special work programs and other helpful tools.

How does it work?

Generally, an intranet is created and managed by a team that includes writers and designers, as well as IT experts.

Why is it useful?

An intranet is useful to the organisation or business that uses it as it interconnects all users and provides them with helpful information and access.

What do you need to keep in mind about your child and intranets?

If you are granted access to an intranet, it is important not to abuse the trust by sharing the access details.
