There is also a socialization that comes with regular classroom learning experiences, e.g., asking questions, listening politely to others that does not occur in cyberspace classrooms. In classroom settings, also, students can enjoy the intellectual stimulation of live lectures and discussions, and these same experiences are not available online. Similarly, students in a classroom can ask questions about and request clarifications of learning materials immediately in class, while online students may have to wait, for hours, or even sometimes for days, for an instructor to respond to a question or request for clarification or additional information.
All in all, even though online courses, as opposed to regular classroom courses, have both good and bad aspects, I believe that the positive aspects of online courses outweigh the negative ones. Online courses are more flexible and convenient for busy working students. They allow students to avoid inconvenient and expensive transportation necessities, problems…

Pros of Online Classes
Excelling in an online world
Online classes have numerous pros and cons. In some cases, depending on the individual, the pros may outweigh the cons. For instance, the working class may find it advantageous to take online courses in order to meet scheduling mandates. He or she can plan to take classes around their work schedule and by doing so they can spend more time with family as well as be able to schedule classes around social and special events. The convenience of taking classes online would allow them the opportunity to give quality time to their families, friends, as well as be the best that they can be at their jobs. However, there are some setbacks in taking online classes; personal participation is one of those factors. Factors in the classroom, such as forming a good rapport with other classmates and having meaningful relationships with…

Online classes are presented with challenges that brick and mortar classes do not have to face. The challenge of not being able to see the professor to ask questions is limited to email, phone, and times the professor is available. There may not be immediate answers to questions because professors cannot be available 24/7, more especially where online classes are concerned. There are challenges concerning the learning of the online class environment to meet assignments and obtain instructions. Each class may be set up different ways. There are time management concerns because, with Asynchronous classes, for example, the week is set up from Sunday midnight to Sunday midnight. There are time differences between geographic locations that also play a part. Determination has to be made between the time differences.
The online environment can be especially challenging to someone who has never done online classes. Learning the different functions…
Online College vs. Traditional College
When considering the ever-changing and ever-growing world of globalization and technology, it is no surprise that such trends have found their way into the educational arena. Accordingly, with the computerization of classrooms and assignments many more worldly citizens have been given access to the valuable education they deserve. Regardless of the subject they teach, almost all teaching professionals have also had to become more educated in the world of technology. For, in addition to the computerization of assignments, technology has found its way into several other aspects of the overall higher education experience. In the modern collegiate world things like applications, grades, transcripts, library resources, textbooks and even exams have all been incorporated into the lives of students and faculty members. In keeping with this advancement of technological integration, countless universities have begun to offer online classes and degree programs, whereby students never enter a…
Online Collaboration: How and Why?
What is Online Collaboration?
Online Collaboration bases the system on what have been started by the earlier PC networking system. Users in certain local area and other network are capable to communicate each other on their PC by swapping files and mails in text file, although during the early time it was limited to text data in small size. As technology has developed more sophisticated facilities, it is possible for people to use the complete system to transfer information anywhere in seconds, enabling people to cut time and travel and having the whole work, outline, discussions and commands transferred through the wire.
People are depended on computers to connect to each other nowadays. With the emergence of the internet, many industries will find an open door to spread the news and support the growth to anywhere in the world. Controlling the whole world's business will…

Do students lose more than they gain in online writing classes?
Kiefer argues that the online educational format for a writing class is inferior to the traditional classroom setting that is normally composed of a limited amount of students. In the traditional writing classroom students can be given the timely feedback that has been shown to be able to increase their writing capabilities. The online setting by contrast has inherent limitations that do not allow for the quality and timeliness that is needed to effectively study writing. Although Kiefer's overall argument has valid points, there are two considerations that must be taken. These considerations look at alternatives and the future of online education.
The first is that not all students are able to take a class in person due to work or a personal situation. Therefore, while not ideal, an online course can still be a worthwhile…

online consumer reviews from the consumer's perspective.
Online consumer reviews are often the first way that a consumer will learn about a new product or service. The pros of online consumer reviews include receiving potentially unbiased information about a product or service. The cons of online consumer reviews include their increasing lack of credibility as more companies are resorting to tactics like paying bloggers for positive product reviews, paying writers to write positive Amazon reviews, and the inability to genuinely decipher the difference between a trustworthy and untrustworthy review. Paid or compensated reviewers are becoming increasingly savvy in their presentation of material. By inserting a few objective or even critical comments amid a sea of positive information about the brand or specific product, the paid reviewer engenders trust and therefore creates an illusion of credibility. The ill informed consumer might be prone to trusting the paid reviewer because of the…
They worked with the FTC to define the following four Fair Information Practices, rules designed to prevent companies from abusing the information they receive through online profiling (Computer law tip of the week, 2000):
Rule 1 (Notice): A company must notify customers that it uses online profiling to track their online habits. If it collects personally identifiable information about customers, such as their names, addresses or telephone numbers, the company's website must clearly and unambiguously notify them of this fact before the company collects this information.
Rule 2 (Choice): Depending on the type of information a company collects, there must be opt-in and opt-out options. Opt-in, or obtaining the customer's permission, is required to link personally identifiable information that a company has about a customer such as name, address or telephone number with data acquired about Web surfing habits. Opt-out means that the customers have to be given the chance…

Online discussions are asynchronous postings of electronic messages by members of a particular class in a conversation that is continued on topics that are designated by an instructor. Online discussions are useful since they help instructors facilitate online courses and faculties that teach remote sites through interactive television. These are quite beneficial for faculties that each traditional courses and only meet once or twice a week as well as faculties that are occasionally absent from class. This is just like any other type of learning and therefore theory will inform the facilitation of online discussion. Theory brings out the idea of what is to be learned and therefore will form the basis for the discussion. We can say that theory is what facilitates online discussion since the learners and facilitators have what they need to form the base of their discussion.it is therefore very important for the facilitators to have…

Logos in online communications changes because diction has changed such as in the use of slang. Words can be copied, pasted, and inserted into related documents that are then shared with the group via the online collaboration software and so words have become less sacrosanct, more a part of the common domain.
Online collaboration tools aid communication and make at-a-distance meetings possible. However, online communication has drawbacks. One major drawback with online communication is the potential for misunderstanding because of the lack of nonverbal communication cues. Unless the speaker uses video conferencing tools, his or her emotions are difficult to read. The use of emoticons does not make up for slight twitches in facial muscles, eye contact, or posture in helping viewers read the speaker. Therefore, online communication tools make the pathos part of the rhetorical equation more difficult to execute. Group members need to use creative means to convey…

In these exceptions, which may be a one-time transfer of funds from a 401k to an IA or to a mutual fund, the financial services firms need to create ethical safeguards to ensure the confidentiality and actual funds themselves are secure. The bottom line is that the financial services firms need to create a highly secure, customized and tightly integrated series of web-based online trading applications and tools to make sure individual investors can work to attain their investment goals.
Improvements for Online Trading as a Self-Service Strategy
There are many opportunities for improvement for Web-based online trading tools, starting with even stronger security specifically on the area of inter-fund transfers and the recording of transactions. Today many of these Web-based online applications store history only for 12 months, and do not provide an audit record back three or five years of all in-account transactions.

Certainly, pedagogy may be an issue. Whatever the case, human anxiety is a critical issue in the employment of Web 2.0 technology in nursing education. In an article in Nursing Education Perspectives, the issue is raised as to whether social media such as Twitter could bridge the gap. It appears that Twitter may provide a social media that ties classes together and builds classroom comradery and community in the online classroom. Faculty interviewed in the article have reported success in this area. They report that the ability to send an unshared message to the instructor was helpful and may help reduce student anxiety (Skiba, 2008, 110-111).

Any lack of candor with reference to how I approach my interview is unethical.

Probability theory is an aspect that is applicable on an everyday basis. A particular situation in which I may use probability theory to reach a decision in public management is to investigate equal employment prospects within the organization. For instance, there is a need to assess whether the organization hires women in the same manner as men, especially in positions that do not necessitate certain gender traits. Therefore, in this case, probability theory can be beneficial in probability theory, specifically Bernoulli process. That is, a process can either generate two possible outcomes, which are male or female. Probability plays a pivotal part in this regard because the probability of a certain results is the proportion of times that outcome would take place in a long and extensive run of repeated observations. In this instance if men and women are equally represented in the labor force, then…
Online bullying and online harassment typically happens through chat rooms, text messages, and emails, and it generally happens when teens aren't in school, the studies show.
The findings appear in a special edition of the Journal of Adolescent Health.

Today's kids and teens are major media users, but they need grown-up guidance about safe media use, note the CDC's Corinne David-Ferdon, PhD, and Marci Feldman Hertz, MS. They predict that "with the development of new cell phones that are small enough to fit into young children's hands and that are designed to be visually attractive to a younger audience, more and younger children will become competent and frequent users of this technology."
That means that research on preventing online harassment "must be rapid and flexible enough to keep up with the evolving nature of…

Being an online instructor
The current learning trends are becoming predominantly online based and many instructors find it more convenient adopting this mode of learning as opposed to the traditional classroom-based learning. It is not to say that the online-based learning should replace the traditional classroom setting, but there is need for adaptability of either modes where necessary. The following are the major areas that I will emphasize on in order to have an effective online class and effective interaction with the students as an instructor;
Assessing learning outcomes
One of the methods that I will use for assessing the learning outcomes will be the evaluation of the activeness of each student in the online class especially in terms of answering questions in the online forum. I will also post numerous assignments and use the frequency of reply or return of the exams from each student to gauge…
The author of this report has been asked to answer to several questions about how the online classroom manifests and what it should be like. The items that will be discussed will included how the online classroom setting differs from the traditional classroom setting, how the lack of non-verbal and visual communication in an online setting could perhaps be a hindrance, the planning that should be undertaken for an online class, the time management that will be necessary for an online class, the importance of effective communication in an online class and the effective use of technology in an online class. While online class opportunities have been a boon for learning overall, there are some potential or unavoidable tradeoffs that must be navigated and addressed.
As noted by the parameters and description for this assignment, there is something to be said for the structure and support that is…

But what better introduction is there to writing than to be judged solely upon one's critical writing? Although one does not interact personally with other student writers in the online class format, one does not have the ability to interact with the writers of the texts one reads, either. One judge a classical essayist based on his or her quality of prose, and in an Internet forum one can judge a fellow student opinion based on the same standard, the quality and fluidness of the prose and the soundness of the student's opinion. Also, without the pressures of personal interaction, one is likely to be more honest about one's opinions and to take more risks about expressing one's own, potentially risky thoughts about a controversial subject.

For this communication class to be effective it is however going to need to use these forms of one-way communication to support collaboration and more interactive discussion. The design goals of Web 2.0 technologies (O'eilly, 36) shown in Figure 1 of the Appendix are beginning to be adopted throughout many social networking and online teaching tools (Greener, 178). Communication in this online class will be much more effective if these tools based on Web 2.0 design objectives are used. The ability to collaborate more, interact and converse more will be possible. Technology use in this class needs to enable create conversation and communication so more can be achieved.

Internal Validity Threats.
History- Yes, because of the differences in the time period in which traditional and online classes are conducted. Can be remedied through determination of fixed time schedules for each day or class meeting.
Maturation- No, because both classes finished in the same time period, signified by the fact that both groups took their exams simultaneously and within one setting/location.
Testing- No, since utilization of the ANOVA within-subjects and between-subjects test was the most appropriate statistical test to be conducted for this type of study.
Instrumentation- Yes, because there are other more efficient ways from which effectiveness can be assessed. Instruments focusing on actual time spent for the course, especially for online students,…
Instructional Method Applicability
Online learning is becoming increasingly common, given the rise of nontraditional learners who must fit their classes into a schedule with outside work and family obligations. However, grave concerns remain as to whether online learning is as effective as face-to-face learning. New technological methods of instruction have created ways in which synchronous or 'real time' education can take place, through chat rooms, versus asynchronous methods like message boards, which do not facilitate dialogue and debate. However, online learning is still often perceived as 'second best' versus face-to-face learning.
A 2010 report by the U.S. Department of Education contradicts this finding. It found that "on average, students in online learning conditions performed modestly better than those receiving face-to-face instruction. The difference between student outcomes for online and face-to-face classes -- measured as the difference between treatment and control means, divided by the pooled standard deviation -- was larger…

online grocery industry is as a competitive a market as the brick and mortar grocery industry, maybe even more so. Many of the same competitors that operate traditional grocery establishments are also competitors in the online environment. Many of the competitors are quite adept at marketing and a competitive analysis will likely show that their brick and mortar expertise has translated well in the online environment.
Three of the most prolific competitors include alMart, Target and NetGrocer. alMart, of course is an international firm with profits of approximately $127 billion in 2013. Target is rather paltry in comparison with a total revenue (as compared to alMart's total profit) of approximately $73 billion. Even though NetGrocer has less than $1 billion in revenue it is still the fourth largest online grocer in the industry.

The age of the internet has revolutionized the methods of communication and information exchange. A great deal has changed in the last decade with the information technology explosion. With more accessibility and economical port charges internet has made its presence felt in a number of avenues ranging from corporate desks to common households. This has enabled speedy communication procedures such as email, conferencing, instant messaging, web telephony, video conferencing and so on. Information that was hitherto difficult to access and obtain suddenly became available a click away. With increased usage and application of the internet and other virtual private networks (VPN), information was readily and easily available on the desktop. A user had little or practically no need to leave the confines…
The newspaper industry, picturesque for centuries, symbolized novelty marked by downright, clear-cut representation of information and news and painstakingly categorized. eaders got used to repose faith in some bylines and be aware of indications of prominence, like the blaring headline in the form of a banner. A good number of people think a computer screen can never take the place of a newspaper. Online newspapers are securing a position for themselves, particularly among the news hunters, the computer users, and the youths, who perceive the Internet as the practical medium for information and news. The online medium is befitting for the people who have treaded ahead of MTV, afar Entertainment Tonight and also further than wired journal. (The Online Newspaper: A Postmodern Medium)

The Benefits of Online Education
To a degree, all educational institutions have migrated some of their services online, taking advantage of new media and new technologies to improve service delivery, cut costs, and enhance the learning environment. From eBooks to cloud-based collaborative work projects, the online environment adds depth to the classroom and expands opportunities for students from different backgrounds including those with special needs. It is therefore no surprise that enrollment in online education programs has been steadily climbing, with the greatest growth in the private non-profit school sector (Allen & Seaman, 2016). Online learning might never fully supplant traditional in person classroom learning, but it can help educators and students reach their mutual goals. Educational institutions should in fact work harder to improve their online education offerings, to promote social justice goals in education, enhance student engagement, and expand opportunities for a broader client base.

Class action lawsuits refer to those civil suits brought by a group of people in similar situation. It is one of the most effective and cost-efficient method of bringing charges against an employer for unfair business practices that caused harm to one several employees or consumers. In most cases, class action lawsuits are brought against corporations and large organizations, but in some rare care, legal professionals can also register a class action against any organization if it notices unfair practices and can gather individuals who would testify to the same.
A simple example of such a lawsuit is consumers leveling charges against an organization for bringing defective product to the market. Usually one or two individuals start class action, which is later joined by people similarly situated. In many cases, class action lawsuit is actually announced in newspapers or through other…

The qualitative scientific theoretical model (Shank, 2006, pp. 97-101) best exemplifies the demands of this theory-based research as qualitative inquiry, i.e. subjective data might not explain the issue, with regard to anything but perception by students and instructors as to the effectiveness of the course. In other words the qualitative scientific theoretical model would best demonstrate an answer to the issue of quality, in a manner than can be generalized. It is accepted that math understanding is the best indicator of how well an individual understands and can work within math concepts, therefore pre-testing through remedial testing and then a comparison of post-testing (a repeat of the progressive computer-based math placement test) would better indicate success and/or failure of the students to grasp math concepts. The results would then allow the two classes, face-to-face vs. online to be compared on an equal footing. The hope would…

portrayed in 'Lady Chatterley's Lover'. The book is quite old and the period of happening in the book is that of the First World War. The book was written by David Herbert Lawrence, an author who did not have a very high reputation as a classic writer in English. His intention was only to make money by way using his writing skills. Considering the period in which this book was written, he had probably gone a little too far from the limits which were prevalent in those days and the book was banned from sale in many countries as it was being considered to be obscene. In some countries, the ban even progressed to exist till the period of the 1960s. The reason was due to the prevalence of obscenity in the book and that was the primary reason to make the book extremely famous.

Distance learning is a new scheme or mode of transferring and acquiring learning or education through the use of modern technology between instructor and student who are separated by time and space. It can be between schools, between schools and colleges and universities, within school buildings and districts or between individuals (urke, 2002).
Is earliest prototype was the international correspondence in the 19th century. In the 1970s, it reshaped into open universities, later into the 1980's wave of technological products, such as the videotape, broadcast, satellite and cable. In the 1990s, rey (as qtd in urke) predicted that distance education programs would phenomenally grow that decade to an extent that most of the people the U.S. would be served by it at the minimal ratio of 1:1, mostly in the community colleges. Right enough by 1994, 80% of community colleges in the U.S. began offering some form of distance education…

Anyone who uses his or her cellphone too quickly check a message while standing in line at the grocery store is likely to become aware of the intense hostility directed toward Internet technology. The Internet has been accused of making people rude and less civil in real life and in online life; of negatively influencing elections; even of artificially damaging the human brain by reducing the natural human attention span. Very few technologies admittedly have no negative effects. Even early industrialization had negative effects on the lives of people who wove by hand for a living. But while the Internet has clearly had some negative effects, this should not outweigh the positive impact it has had upon many lives, including connecting people who would otherwise not have any social outlet, and providing a window onto the world that intellectually curious people would not otherwise be able to see.
Online employee orientation programs must provide a full and thorough introduction to the company just like a traditional orientation program. Their content specifications may encompass the specific technical demands of the job; a broad range of the company's H policies (including payroll, promotions, anti-discrimination policies, etcetera); policies on harassment, civility, and discrimination; and even basic information like parking regulations. Both the technical and the practical may be encompassed within an online orientation. Still, new employees can easily feel overwhelmed so the content should be relevant to their most pertinent concerns (minutiae can always be addressed later). Employees likely want to know how they are expected to behave, how they will be evaluated in terms of their performance, and any knowledge required for their day-to-day job tasks.
Online employee orientation programs have the advantage of being able to be tailored to the needs of specific employees and specific departments relatively easily.…

Massive Open Online Course (MOOC): An Examination
When the Internet debuted decades ago, all parties involved were aware of the fact that it would no doubt change the world, and change the way that we live. This has been proven to be true a thousand times over. One of the most profound impacts that it has had on society is that the internet has proven itself to be capable of bridging distance and bringing people together. People aren't just able to make friends from all over the world, but they're able to collaborate and work together with people from all over the world, seeing how others live, trading knowledge and trading understanding. Online education has been one of the pinnacle examples of this phenomenon. At this time, online education is rapidly expanding, and as anyone can see the possibilities attached to online learning are truly vast. One manifestation of this…

Shifting Classroom Learning to Online Learning: A Case Study to Transition From the Traditional Classroom-Based Program to Online CBT Format
The objective of this study is to examine the transition from the Traditional classroom-based program to Computer-Based Training. There are reported to be a great number of colleges and universities that are presently transitioning to Computer-Based Training and fully transitioning to "online, blended or web-facilitated courses." (Keengwe & Kidd, 2010) The number of online programs and classes available have grown exponentially during the course of the last ten years. Other terms used to refer to Computer-Based Instruction include those stated as follows: "…web-based training, e-learning, distributed learning, Internet-based learning, web-based instruction, cyber learning, virtual learning, or net-based learning. Online learning is a subset of distance education and embraces a wide set of technology applications and learning processes including, computer-based learning, web-based learning, virtual classrooms, and digital collaborations."

status and class and how class uses words to prioritize themselves. The world as we perceive it -- or our reality -- is run according to symbols. It is symbols -- or words - that define that which is socially approved of and also symbols -- and words that peg individuals and groups in particular positions.
Bordeaux argues that the powerful elite have categorized substances, pegged certain values to them, made them correspond with particular symbols and then attached these symbols to certain class structures. These defining words are also grouped in terms of polarities and, so for instance, you have one item that may denote a positive sense whilst it's opposite condemns. These class structures also vary from generation to generation and from country to country. So for instance, a olls oyce is actually a vehicle as amongst any other, but the elite (a certain class) attached a certain…

Raising a second set of kids after I'd thought I could retire from that has been a challenge since the accident but we're learning to work through it and it's getting easier the longer we go on, as the children and all of us grow through the loss of their parents, and I learn how to do everything faster. The Internet has been a help this time around but in many ways a complication as well, as I learn to balance taking classes, teaching introductory anatomy and physiology (A&P). Some days seem so overwhelming it is all I can do to "stick to the list" but it means I get to see the family live on and grow again and I know much more than I did the first time around.

Over time, from one second to the next, human behavior constantly changes, contributing to the fact that human behavior, consequently human cognition, constitutes a dynamic process. (Thelen and Smith, 1994). Communication, also a continuous interactive process, serves as the overtime interaction between the human motivated information processing system and the communication message. (Geiger and Reeves, 1993; Lang, 2000; Rafaeli, 1988)
Media multitasking indicates a user will simultaneously experience exposure to content from various media. As an individual possesses only a limited number of cognitive resources, he/she will not be able to process information at the same level of efficiency as media single use. As a result, the continuing, shifting attention results in less effective retrieval of information, as well as, experiencing challenges retrieving, encoding and storing information.

Third Class Of Drugs
In the United States, all pharmaceutical products: from Advil to Zoloft, are sold either as over-the-counter remedies or as prescription drugs. Over-the-counter remedies like Advil, aspirin, and Tylenol, can be purchased by any consumer at any store that chooses to sell them. Therefore, an eight-year-old can go into a convenience store and buy a bottle of aspirin. On the other hand, if an eighty-year-old man wanted to try Viagra, he would need to consult a physician and retrieve a prescription, and from there he would need to buy the drug from a licensed pharmacist. The two-class division evolved from a series of acts and resolutions passed in conjunction with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The most significant landmark in the creation of a specific prescription-only class of drugs was the Durham-Humphrey Amendment, passed in 1951. The Amendment, which revised a 1938 congressional act called the…

For social networks, just as in our neighbors, cities and towns, when one is honest and accurate in what they say, they gain respect. Online social networks demand the same if not more transparency to gain trust. With so much focus on how to make money with social networks through advertising (Anderson, 2008) experts agree that keeping the networks free of too much clutter and advertising is already starting. Social networks are best online when they imitate the best ones offline, which are based on mutual respect, trust and proven and reliable means of communicating in trust with each other.

Each picture- the pictures being that of famous and historic monuments in Verona, come with an explanation of where the monument is, and also short snippets of information on the monument. For example, under the picture of Juliet's Balcony, some information on the history of Juliet's Balcony, and also its location are given in small sentences.
This enables the visitor to the website to assimilate this important information, and judge for himself, after viewing the pictures, if he wants to visit the city or not.

This researcher rejects the existence of online communities because computer mediated group discussions cannot possibly meet this definition. Weinreich's view is that anyone with even a basic knowledge of sociology understands that information exchange in no way constitutes a community.
For a cyber-place with an associated computer mediated group to be labeled as a virtual settlement it is necessary for it to meet a minimum set of conditions. These are: (1) a minimum level of interactivity; (2) a variety of communicators; (3) a minimum level of sustained membership; and (4) a virtual common-public-space where a significant portion of interactive computer mediated groups occur (Weinreich, 1997). The notion of interactivity will be shown to be central to virtual settlements. Further, it will be shown that virtual settlements can be defined as a cyber-place that is symbolically delineated by topic of interest and within which a significant proportion of interrelated interactive computer…

Active participation in comprehensive activity may support not only advanced conceptual understanding, but also the emergency of new metacognitive beliefs about knowing, and particularly about the importance of understanding Hatano & Inagaki (1992); as cited by Lehtinen, et al., (2004). The typical classroom does not have the resources needed for successful collaboration because there are not enough available anchor points at which action and attention can be coordinated, "however computers and the accompanying capabilities of computers present an opportunity for mediation tools that assist students in focusing their attention on objects that are mutually shared." Jarvela, Bonk, Lehtinen; as cited by Lehtinen et al., (2004).

(2004). The conclusions that CSCL-based learning frameworks enable higher levels of learning both for in-class and distance taught courses (Macdonald, 2003) further underscores the need for an online learning management system that is tailorable to support both instruction strategies. The concepts of Khan (2003) and others (Bannon, 1989) (Kanfer, 2001) highlight the need for an agile yet foundationally solid learning network that can respond to the changing needs of students.

In order to isolate the effects of CSCL and scaffolding-based teaching approaches, specifically looking to isolate statistically significant increases in comprehension, capability to critically evaluate concepts and analyze and critique them using analytical constructs learned, a test/re-test methodology is suggested. Of all methodologies that could potentially be used for analyzing the influence of CSCL-based teaching strategies that include customized scaffolding strategies for students, the test/re-test methodology shows the greatest potential level of reliability and validity over time according to Anderson (1998). Taking into account the concentration on using argumentative teaching strategies in conjunction with CSCL-based platforms and scaffolding yields a complex set of independent variables that are best measured in a test/re-test methodological approach. The combined influences of all variables together can be isolated by specific variable through the use of pair-wise t-tests and correlation analysis once the data is accumulated. Using statistical approaches that introduce any of the given independent variables into the analysis during the learning process introduce too much of a potential for sampling error, in addition to spurious results given the influence of the independent variable's introduction rather than its actual effect of the variable's value itself.
The different "isms" such as sexism, heterosexism, and racism are creating very real schisms -- in our minds, and between people. The chasms of communication that are created by hatred and misunderstanding are socially constructed. They can be socially deconstructed too. Such rifts occur between groups of people and between whole cultures. In some pockets of the United States, social conservatism threatens to erase the social progress made since the Civil ights movements of the 1960s. There are still people in the United States that believe that homosexuality is unnatural, even immoral. The idea that heterosexual marriage is in some way superior to homosexual marriage is rooted in outmoded religious doctrine and not in positive social progress. Within these "isms" are the chasms of misunderstanding that create social strife and inequality. Income disparity, for example, is closely linked with race as well as gender. Women still get paid less than…

According to Muntenu (2004) "It is almost impossible for a security analyst with only technical background to quantify security risk for intangible assets. He can perform a quantitative or qualitative evaluation using dedicated software to improve the security of the information systems, but not a complete risk assessment for the whole information system. Qualitative assessment based on questionnaires use in fact statistical quantitative methods to obtain results. Statistical estimation represents the basis for quantitative models." Muntenu states conclusion that in each of these approaches the "moral hazard of the analyst has influence on the results because human nature is subjective. He must use a sliding window approach according to business and information systems features, balancing from qualitative to quantitative assessment."

To that end, the Academic Senate recommends "comprehensive replacement plans to maintain currency of all technology" (Guidelines).
Distance learning courses are the inevitable child of advances in communication technology. Because human resources are a huge drain on a community college's limited funding, the use of technology to allow a single teacher to teach many more students than they could otherwise manage was natural. Teachers now have access to "such diverse learning strategies as computer assisted instruction, real-time two-way interactive video, multimedia presentations, electronic bulletin boards, and e-mail" (Curriculum). This allows them to create resources for students that can take the place of face-to-face time.

Comparison: "ho Am I?" And "Gender Gap in Cyberspace"
According to socio-linguist Deborah Tannen's essay "Gender Gap in Cyberspace," using the computer is a fundamentally gendered experience. Although both women and men use computers in today's society, they do so in different ways that reflect the fundamental orientations of the genders. Men are interested in getting the most powerful computer, winning at computer games and exhibiting their technical mastery by fixing 'bugs.' omen use mediums such as emails to build relationships. The Internet does offer the ability for the genders to bridge communication chasms. But the anonymity of the Internet is also more supportive of the male desire to engage in aggressive, verbally-directed combat, since common social niceties…

religion class. It MLA style, Answer questions: Confucius thinks deliberate tradition
It is not absolutely necessary for an individual to be cognizant of and take part in some sort of deliberate tradition for the cultivation of virtuous individual lives. Nonetheless, such a tradition can be useful in propagating virtue. Alternatively, such a tradition can also be used to propagate vices and other nefarious forms of behavior. However, a deliberate tradition is not necessary to cultivate virtue. One can cultivate virtue simply by following the golden rule, which is to do unto others as one wants done unto oneself (Klempner). Such a mantra or formula for virtue is highly innate and is actually little more than common sense. Hence, individuals can discover this ideology on their own and practice it without expressly being told about it, or following some lengthy tradition dispelling other means of moral behavior. In light of this…

Employ for Successful Distance Learning
In some ways, distance learning and learning in the traditional classroom rely upon the same basic academic skills and study habits. A quality educator, strong classroom materials, and the background education necessary to understand new materials all contribute to student success. However, the distance learning environment offers unique opportunities and challenges for students. Distance learning removes some of the obstacles to the traditional classroom by allowing students to attend classes when they have the time available, increasing learner flexibility. They also provide students with the opportunity to review material as it is being taught, without delaying other learners in the classroom. However, distance learning also injects four primary challenges for the student: planning, time management, communication and technology use. Fortunately, with proper planning, a student can ensure that these challenges, which have the potential of derailing a distance-learning student, can actually become advantages.

Class Assessment Techniques
Classroom Assessment Techniques are decisive methods of evaluation that are useful in two major areas. The level of which the student has understood the content of the course can be assessed and provides information regarding your teaching methods efficiency. It's an approach which bases on the fact that the planning of learning activities and structuring of teaching is better when one knows the how and what the student is learning. It's also a simple technique which is anonymous and non-graded activities of in-class that provided useful feedback to the teacher and the students on the learning and teaching process. The difference of Classroom Assessment to other methods of assessing the students is that its objective is to improve the course and not grade assignment. It's primarily aimed at understanding of the learning process of the student and improvement of the teaching approaches (Angelo, & Cross, 1995, p.257).…
