In one of my tests, a question was like this-

We can now learn _ the internet. What will be the appropriate word in the gap?

  1. Through
  2. On

I am thinking that "on" will be the correct answer. But I am not quite sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Internet by definition means an inter-connected system of computer networks.

Though both the options are correct and can fit the sentence well, the preposition on is more likely used.

In fact, other than these two prepositions, the most commonly used ones are over and from (in this referral context).

People can learn so many creative new things on/over/from/through the internet these days.
