Abstract

In today’s world, internet has become a fundamental factor in building a better world for all beings, and even for the conservation of the natural environment. It is already playing important roles in the education sector to impart knowledge for better impact. One of the several significant features of the internet is that it provides us unlimited resources; i.e., as a huge database. The internet also serves as a platform for scholars and research students to share their expertise through online networks, This workshop is a demonstration on how we, as Buddhist scholars and students, can use the internet to improve our research/works and share them to have wider and better impact within the academic institutions and the general society.
