This chapter examines what people learn from online news and how. It first reviews research that looks into how people learn from the news before discussing how consumption of news found on the Internet affect the way audiences think about politics. It then considers how the Internet affects the online learning process, along with the implications of differential learning for society. It shows that audiences use search functions and topical menus and follow hyperlinks to respond to how the news is presented.

Keywords:   online news, Internet, audiences, politics, online learning, differential learning, search functions, topical menus, hyperlinks
