A mushrooming computer market and the advent of World Wide Web have sparked a rapid increase in the electronic delivery of education. Technology based distance education has been around a long time, but its growth has surged in the 1990s all over the world, resulting in growing thousands of online courses in field of English language teaching. One of the main reasons for this growth in online learning is an improvement in resources, technology and established effective methods of learning. Online education offers every individual the right information in right format at the right time. This is known as any time, any place, at any pace principal of learning. The study has collected information on participants who are teachers of primary school level, perceptions of an online course. The study followed a convergence of quantitative and qualitative methods. The effectiveness of the online course was analyzed through feedback received from interviews of learners and feedback received from learners and ELT experts through questionnaire. Both sets of data have been summarized and analyzed by the researcher to draw meaningful conclusions.

Blooks - The New Books?

zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, Justus-Liebig-University Giessen (Institut für Anglistik), language: English, abstract: Blooks are the new books, a hybrid literary form at the cutting edge of both literature and technology. (Bob Young, founder of the print-on-demand publisher Lulu, 2006) Back in 2006, a phenomenon made its way from the depths of the World Wide Web into the newspapers: the so-called 'blook', a portmanteau word composed of the words 'book' and '(we)blog', meaning a book written on the basis of a blog. The media were excited about these new kinds of books and looked to Japan, where blooks were already bestsellers. 'Blook' even made it into the shortlist of words that were considered to be included in the new edition of the Oxford English Dictionary in 2006 (Philipps 2006). If you search for 'blook' on Google in 2010, you are in most cases directed to archives and it will not take you long to find out that blooks have virtually disappeared from the Web. Despite the fact that weblogs keep thriving, blooks seem to be forgotten. Considering this, it is not surprising to find out that no research has been done on blooks, while weblogs have been a subject of research since 2005. Research on weblogs often concentrates on how they changed journalism and communication in general, but never mentions the medium of blooks. Jenna L. Brinning and Jill Walker Rettberg gave good overviews of web-publishing and blogging, with Brinning stressing Habermas' 'Strukturwandel der Öffentlichkeit' with regard to the opportunities of the Web and Rettberg taking into consideration the rise of 'citizen journalism'. This paper will try to find out what happened to blooks not only by examining this medium, but also by taking a look at its origins. The first chapter will deal with the definition of blooks as well as with the history of the so-called 'blogosphere' from which the blook emerged. The second chapter will present some successful examples of blooks, show the diversity of subjects they deal with and analyze the reasons for their popularity. Chapter three will focus on marketing strategies and the overall reception of blooks by taking a look at the media coverage and an award especially invented for this genre. The last two chapters will then compare blooks to traditional narratives and eventually draw a conclusion concerning the development of blooks and their potential for success.

Quark-Gluon Plasma: Theoretical Foundations: An...
496,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The purpose of this volume is to trace the development of the theoretical understanding of quark-gluon plasma, both in terms of theequation of state and thermal correlation functions and in terms ofits manifestation in high energy nuclear collisions. Who among us hasnot wondered how tall a mountain is on a neutron star, what happenswhen matter is heated and compressed to higher and higher densities, what happens when an object falls into a black hole, or what happenedeons ago in the early universe? The study of quark-gluon plasma is related in one way or another to these and other thought provoking questions. Oftentimes the most eloquent exposition is given in theoriginal papers. To this end a selection is made of what are themost important pioneering papers in this field. The early 1950s wasan era when high energy multiparticle production in cosmic rayinteractions attracted the attention of some of the brightest minds in physics, and so it should be no surprise that the first reprinted papers deal with the introduction of statistical models of particleproduction. The quark model arose in the 1960s, while QCD as suchwas recognized as the theory of the strong interactions in the1970's. The behavior of matter at high temperatures and supranucleardensities became of wide interest in the nuclear and particle physicscommunities starting in the 1970s, which is when the concept ofquark-gluon plasma became established. The history of the field hasbeen traced up to the early 1990s. There are three reasons forstopping at that point in time. First, most of the key theoreticalconcepts and formalisms arosebefore 1993, although many of themcontinue to be developed today and hopefully well into the future. Second, papers written after 1992 are much more readily availablethan those writen before due to the advent of the World Wide Web andits electronic preprin

Introduction One of the most often-repeated questions of recent years is 'Are you on the Web?' The growth ofthe World Wide Web (WWW or simply 'Web') has been phenomenal. It seems that everyone has a web site, or is at least planning have one, and everyone wants to get on-line with their products and services, accounts of their favourite hobbies, their resumes, or pictures of their loved ones. So that you too can join in the on-line revolution, this book will help you get onto the web: to make informed decisions about developing your own web site, how to plan and design the site, and then how to get the site on-line for the world to see. Essential HTML Fast 2 Why use the Web? There are many reasons why you would want to use the Web, and why the web is becoming an essential tool for business. Some of these are: • It is cross-platform: If you're reading this at work, you're probably painfully aware of some of the problems caused by being tied to a particular type of computer. You might have come across some software that would make your job easier, but then discover that the software is only available for a different computer running a different operating system. You may have been sent some documents by a client which you subsequently discover you can't read, as the disk seems to be of the wrong type.

From Databases to Hypermedia
119,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The number ofbooks on databases is very large. Thus, our decision to yet add another book to the body of literature requires some justification. However, even a cursory glance through this book will show that we have taken a rather different approach indeed when compared to monographs on databases. First, material ties together the well-known relational model with the newer and not yet as solidly established object oriented one and leads to data models for hypermedia system. This is unique and timely: the chaos on the World Wide Web is getting out of hand, and one ofthe main reasons is that the underlying data model is too weak. Second, the book is full of illustrations. And those illustrations are not only available in printed form, but also on a CD ROM. Actually, much more is true: for each ofthe 26 chapters, electronic courseware is available, one lesson per chapter. Third, the lessons described contain explanations that are easier or better to understand than those provided in the printed chapter, since a number ofdynamic and interactive features are used. Fourth, the lessons can be used in a variety ofmodes: as complement for the book; as stand-alone material instead ofthe book; as slides for the lecturer; and as help for the student. And, as explained below they can be easily modified.

Essay from the year 2011 in the subject Information Management, grade: B, The University of Chicago, language: English, abstract: As the world continues to enjoy the reliability of web-based applications, security of such applications is becoming an increasingly vital concern. Currently, virtually all sectors are implementing some form of internet-based programs. The World Wide Web has significantly led to desirable expansion in business, healthcare, government and social services (Lee, Shieh & Tygar, 2005, p.184). However, the number of internet attacks has equally increased in the recent past. Hackers have become more adept in writing malicious codes to counter the conventional software codes developed by software vendors. The emergence of various types of vulnerabilities and generation of malicious codes on the internet platform has affected service provision in many sectors. The healthcare field is a particularly sensitive area where privacy and confidentiality of information are immensely important. Storage, transmission and implementation of health-related data and information are some of the processes which require secure online platforms. As such, it is very important to provide security in web applications used in the health sector. This paper explores the impacts of web application security in e-health. Provision of integral healthcare in the modern medical profession has taken a new direction with regards to storage of clinical data and patients' records (Chryssanthou & Apostolakis & Varlamis, 2010, p.3). In order to achieve a shared healthcare paradigm, implementation of web-based applications has become inevitable. Electronic health records (EHRs) have become a common buzzword in healthcare issues and facilities. The advent of EHRs has reliably replaced paperwork in medical informatics (Chryssanthou & Apostolakis & Varlamis, 2010, p.3). The EHR can be designed as an online-hosted platform in which medical information, patients' health records and clinical data are stored. Security policies and programs must be integrated during the structuring of the EHRs, due to a number of reasons which are related to availability, confidentiality, privacy and authenticity of data and information. Security in e-health services requires safe transmission of data to and from the EHRs (Chryssanthou & Apostolakis & Varlamis, 2010, p.3).

Approval Plans
45,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

How can you, as an acquisition librarians, keep current on the output of hundreds of publishers? The answer, of course, is that you cannot. For over 30 years, approval plans have been used by librarians to acquire current titles, save staff time, and build core collections. Even today, these reasons seem appropriate, as libraries try to maintain up-to-date collections and control personnel and operating budgets. However, as shown in Approval Plans: Issues and Innovations, the use of approval plans is not so simple and straightforward; their use is subject to complex procedures and policies--and even politics. This book presents research by librarians from academic libraries and professionals from approval vendors to give you necessary insight on the major approval plan issues and to show you some of the innovative approaches to solving the problems associated with approval plans. Unfortunately, approval plans are not as simple as creating a needs profile and receiving the books that match that profile from an approval vendor. Problems and questions invariably arise. If you are in acquisitions and collection development or administration, it is particularly important that you explore the following questions posed in Approval Plans:What mechanisms can reduce receipt of duplicate titles?Do vendors see small college libraries as a viable market?What role does technology play in improving approval plans?What level of returns is acceptable?Do the hidden operational costs of approval plans offset their benefits?Approval Plans is full of useful information that will show you how to save time and money, improve collections, and utilize new technology. The book discusses such key issues as: the benefits of approval plans to public service vs. the costs to technical service; the call for refined profiles to help keep return rates low; proper management in key areas such as profile development, quality control, and plan maintenance; approval plan overlap; and vendor responsibilities. Innovations covered include: the call for introduction of approval plans to small college libraries; the possibility of outsourcing technical service functions with vendor-supplied cataloging and end-processing; the use of online services, World Wide Web, and the Internet to improve communication between vendors, publishers, and libraries; and a list of criteria to be considered when selecting an automated acquisitions system. Approval Plans is especially useful and timely as libraries are considering the best ways for acquiring books during an era of declining materials budgets. This collection also has special importance, in a broader sense, to the many changes that are occurring in academic libraries today.
