eWorld was designed to be an interactive system. Users are given the opportunity to correspond with other users via email. Features offered include eWorld Conferences (spontaneous and scheduled conversations on a given topic). Conference topics can be found by clicking the Community Center icon. Protocol and courtesy are discussed. A list of common "smileys" is also given for the new user.
 +

Auditoriums are provided for the interactive user. Usually a guest speaker is invited to address users on the screen. Everyone attending the auditorium session can participate with a response of up to a maximum of 15 words/102 characters. Auditoriums are announced in the Town Square window.
 +
 +
Other interactive features include: email, forums, and eWorld Discussion Boards. Discussion Boards are not as interactive as Conferences but messages or responses may be longer (600 word/4,000 character maximum).

Software libraries are available for users to download. There are three types of software available:
 +
 +
* '''Freeware files and programs''' -- no cost apart from connect time to eWorld.
 +
* '''Shareware''' -- software you can try for a reasonable period of time before sending the fee required onto the program author. Fees generally range from $5.00 to $25.00 per program.
 +
* '''Trial size versions of software''' -- commercial demonstration versions popular software.
 +

Other files you will have access to as a user include: updates, extensions, third party drivers, applications, utilities, fonts, graphics, HyperCard stacks, sounds, information files, [[QuickTime]] movies, and the Apple Update Software Library. A gateway is also provided for users of the Internet.

eWorld users with special needs also have the ability to find and share information with similar users and service/products providers. There is a special Forum called "abilities" that contains information regarding computer access for hearing and visually impaired as well as other special needs.
