Special introductory offer encourages parents and schools
to provide school students with their own safe and fun Children’s Internet
Planet MOZ, http://www.planetmoz.com, the online community for children that provides safe and fun Internet access, is promoting a half price deal throughout February 2002. Signing up now for half-term and beyond, Planet MOZ allows children to access to the Children’s Internet and to create their own Web sites. This site encompasses many of the regular features normally found throughout the Internet, but on Planet MOZ, applications such as email, chat rooms and the creation of an individual’s own Web page are subject to rigorous security controls ensuring that only children who are school students can obtain access and membership.
“The Internet offers a wealth of educational and recreational information, but it can also be an uncontrolled source of information, much of which is inappropriate for children”, comments Stuart Wilson, Managing Director of Hampshire-based ConferNet Ltd which hosts Planet MOZ. “The issue of providing an environment for children that is fun and safe is here to stay. At Planet MOZ Children’s Internet we have eased parents’ profound fears of children being exposed to the undesirable aspects of the Internet, particularly the fears they have about what children get up to during school holidays such as half-term, Easter and summer. In this controlled community children can create their own Web pages from a choice of 50 designs, mail each other and chat in complete freedom.”
The entire Planet MOZ experience is only open to schoolchildren, their schools and associated organisations such as scout groups. It offers virtually everything one would expect of the Internet, and includes branded features, such as MOZsites, MOZmail, MOZchat and MOZshop; other pages within the site include an online Diary, a Phone Book that never gets lost, a password-protected Secret Page, and MagazOne which offers members a magazine specifically suited to their individual age group, such as schoolyear 10-11.
Wilson continues, “What’s unique about Planet MOZ is that it also offers schools the opportunity to communicate with students. When the student logs in they will be told if there is a new message from the school. There are at least 5.6 million regular Internet users of the 7-16 age group, and this is a massive opportunity for parents and schools to encourage children to take the safe surfing route.”
