LAN - Local Area Network, where several computers are linked together, usually with in one site, I.E. a business premises
WAN - Wide Area Network, where computers in different counties, countries or even continents are linked together though a connection such as the internet.
E-Commerce - where a business uses the internet to sell it's products.

EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) works by providing a collection of standard message formats and element dictionary in a simple way for businesses to exchange data via any electronic messaging service.

BTW, I got that from a website, I know very little about EDI apart from what it stands for.

Good Luck!

EDI - Is used to exchange information - I have seen it used for a customer to send an order in and the invoice to be sent back to the them.
MIS - Management Information System or Systems - A system proving reports and information for management
LAN - Network over a local area not using external communcation links
Wan - Network over a Wide area using external communcation links
E-commerce - Best descripation I have heared is
'Clever E:Mail' - If you think about a shopping site that's all it really is
