Computers, during the last two decades or so, have been instrumental in bringing about changes in the way we communicate and gather information and / or knowledge to such an extent that it is hard to find any sphere which has not undergone changes after the advent of computers.
The system of teaching in elementary schools, and of course higher education, is one such area where the advent of computers, coupled with the growth of the World Wide Web, has brought about a complete metamorphosis in the way knowledge is being imparted even in elementary schools.
The conventional mode of teaching by way of imparting knowledge only through books and the written word is fast becoming outdated. The transformation is so forceful that not only do schools provide computer teaching but also put them up in classrooms to aid in the teaching process. Those of us, who see children learning with the aid of computers in a manner that is fun as well as educative, lament why these beautiful machines could not be made available to us.
To the traditional teacher or an older person, it may appear that books and the written word are the last word in teaching. The present day scene with computers even in elementary schools is difficult to imagine for those who have not actually seen and experienced the change that come about in the method of teaching.
The PC's and the Mac's have the capacity to offer information and knowledge to an amount which can not be matched by any other single source. The computer with Internet access is a fantastic teaching tool that the present generation is lucky to have.
Varying from school to school, knowledge is being associated with the aid of PC's or Macs. Mac's may appear to be simpler to operate but they serve the same purpose as the PC's. It depends on the type of deal that the schools strike with the companies and the content that they require as part of the knowledge they intend to divulge to the students. The Internet is a storehouse of knowledge which can be accessed through a simple procedure, resulting, in most of the cases, a scope to bulky books which in any case are no match for the content that the Web is able to provide through the aid of a computer.
To sum it all, the use of computers as a tool of imparting knowledge to students in elementary schools is a judicious tool in the hands of the teacher. …

Today I want to go into a more in depth discussion of communications, as I honestly believe this may be the most important key to your business succeeding.
It really can not be stressed enough …
If you do not have the ability to effectively communicate with your targeted audience then you are seriously limiting your full potential potential online.
First I want you to step back and think about business in general … not just on the internet, but ALL business both on and off-line.
Think about what happens when you walk into an electronics store and you are looking to buy a new stereo, iPod or HDTV. If you like most of us, you really do not know much about whatever it is that you want to purchase and have no idea how to decide which model or brand is right for you. Before you know it, an extremely nice and knowledgeable sales person walks over and you if he or she can be of assistance to you.
You probably start a conversation and explain to this person that you are looking for a new stereo, but have no idea which one to buy, because in all honestly you can figure out why one costs $ 20 and the other costs $ 3000.
I am sure you know what happens next. The sales person will walk you through each system and what they offer. Explain to you why one is better than the other. Probably tell you some technical details about the sound quality that you will pretend to understand, but in the end you will feel as though you have enough information to decide which model is right for you.
Now, imagine that you go into the same store and you get a totally different sales person. This person does not take the time to explain anything to you. He has no knowledge of the types of systems that are offered and can not even tell you why one costs more than the other. You will probably just walk out and go to the next store, hoping someone can help you out.
Now look at the two scenarios, which person is going to be a customer and why? The first person leaves happy and actually makes a purchase, but the products, the store, the prices, everything is exactly the same; except for the sales person.
And the difference between them is one thing, communication.
Now back to your online business. Even though we do not normally communicate verbally on the internet (although that is changing with the rising popularity of video), we do communicate.
We use things like sales letters, articles, autoresponder messages and even emails with our potential customers. If you do not handle all of these types of communications in a professional manner do you really expect these people to become customers of yours? Think back to the electronics store example.
The bottom line here is that effective communication is ESSENTIAL to making any kind …

The World Wide Web is known for its mass amount of information and fast availability for obtaining desired information. When a website's load time is timely the viewer will often click the back button and search for another site. Do not let that happen to your site.
To begin, complex HTML and larger file sizes will slow down loading time.
Optimize all the HTML and dependencies without losing quality information. Clean up out-dated information and rid extra space between lines, doing so will immediately speed up your load time. When organizing information and graphics to be loaded onto the site use a low file size.
Next, make your site independent from any third party content. Set up a separate script that will direct real simple syndication (RSS) feeds to a separate HTML document. You will benefit from this because now you are a separate entity from the third party. Should their site go down or DSN be delayed your site will not be affected.
It is true that some of these tips do not hide by the best practices for designing a website. Although it allows you to gain a different perspective on how your site is organized. It is important to pay particular attention to maintenance and also ensuring that all the material on your site is of value to your viewer.
The World Wide Web is the fastest resource for obtaining information and material is quickly coined as outdated. Consequently, stay ahead and give consumers the information they want and need quickly. Keep in mind maintenance and organization is extremely important in web design . …
I am beginning a series of tutorials on HTML, the language that makes websites possible. This is the first part of my series. Enjoy, and leave any questions in the comments!
What does HTML stand for? Hyper Text Markup Language
Ok, now we've got that out of the way. The first thing you need to know is how to make an HTML file. Easy!
If you are on Windows, go to Start> Accessories> Notepad. Open Notepad, then click File> Save As … and type a name to save it as (eg website). At the end of the name include the extension.html so the name looks like website.html . Now, click the Save As Type dropdown menu and select "All files". Then save.
If you are on a Mac, use TextEdit. Open it by either searching it in Spotlight, or going to Finder> Applications> TextEdit. Open it, go to Preferences and make it Plain Text instead of Rich Text. Go to File> Save As …, type a name, and select Web Page (.html) from the File Format dropdown.
That's all there is to it! Your file is now ready to be made into a website! To view it in the browser (although there is currently nothing to view), just right-click the file, open with your favorite browser.
Ok, now onto the coding! First off: In HTML, everything is made up of tags. Tags consist of and everything in between. For example, the opening tag for an HTML file is. The closing tag is the same, except it has a forward slash in front of the word :. You always begin and end HTML documents with the opening and closing tags. Now, between those tags, put in the head tag. It's the same as the html tag, except with the word "head" instead of "html":
The head of your website is where you will put your websites title, and any files your website requires to run. We will get into most of that later; for now, let's just put in the title. Insert the title tag (I hope you've figured out how to do this by now) and close it.
Now, between the title tags, add a title for your website eg: My First Website
Now for the content. Beneath the closing head tag, make the body tag, opening and closing :. The body of your site is where all of the content that people see goes (the title only appears in the title-bar of browsers).
If you want to insert text into the body, use the paragraph tag with your text between the opening and closing tag.
Save your work, and view the site the way I mentioned above.
To add text benefit that paragraph, simply add the paragraph tags again, along with the text inside.
That's all for today's tutorial. By now you should know how to: Create an HTML file, add the site title, and add simple text-content. Come back to see our next tutorials! …
