IE

by Darren Smith - Sunday, August 21, 2005, 11:31 PM
 

Abbreviation for Internet Explorer which is Microsoft's web browser.

Originally provided free to undermine Netscape's browser dominance in the 90's and currently provided bundled as standard with Microsoft's microcomputer operating systems.

Many people are switching from IE to Mozilla's Firefox to avoid the perceived risk of spy-ware and other security risks.

Blended learning

by Don Hinkelman - Tuesday, October 2, 2007, 8:28 AM
 
Blended learning is a learning scenario where online and face-to-face activities are combined. Individual learning tasks may also combine in-class activities with online activities in rapid succession. Flexible classrooms with movable desks/chairs and wireless notebooks connected to the internet are ideal for blended learning. One variant of blended learning is when a teacher uses a full-time classroom setting and assigns online homework out-of-class. In a corporate context, blended learning involves a combination of instructor-led instruction, on-job training, self-study materials, and mentoring/coaching systems.
