Learning Content Development Using Semantic Web Technology

Abstract:
Semantic web is based on the ontologies as its core which can support the learning content development in different ways. This paper survey issues introduced in the learning content development and associated activities using semantic web technology. This overview is based on investigation of the area of content’s creation, metadata, annotation, adpativity and discovery through researches related to these issues from different viewpoints.
I. Introduction:

Semantic web is an important leading technology today that describes the information in a machine understandable way [1]. Its accessibility has made the learning content development and learning activities successful. Tim Berners-Lee pushes the idea of the semantic web forward through his envision for providing automated information based on a machine processable semantics of data and heuristics that use this metadata [2].
Various technologies have emerged for Semantic Web to represent the learning content in an interoperable way. Most of them are based on XML (eXtensible Markup Language), XML Schemas, RDF (Resource …

The Fax Machine – A Constantly Evolving Technology Dodging Extinction

Despite the availability of advanced modern day technologies for transferring documents worldwide, the fax machine, a technology developed way back in 1843, continues to persist in homes and offices even today. Considering the fact that this technology is more than a century old, it should have already joined the telegraphs and pagers in antique shops by now. Surprisingly however, instead of going obsolete, fax machines have continued to evolve, adapt and conform to the requirements of modern telecommunications. The fax machine had already made its mark as an office workhorse back in the 1980s, and has continued to appear on business cards ever since! Although threatened by far more advanced and preferable technologies like scanners, printers and email, the fax machine continues to dodge extinction by evolving constantly and remaining popular.
Fax Machine’s Share in the History of Communications
Alexander Bain, a Scottish mechanic, invented the fax machine or ‘facsimile’ in 1843 in Britain. Bain patented this technology in 1843. Bain’s fax machine used a stylus attached to a pend…

What Technology Means to an Educator like me?

Day by day, I observed technology being more recognized and used as an instructional tool in classrooms. Still, I, as an educator, was certainly less comfortable using the technology than the majority of my students. I did use technology in my classes, but was mostly just using PowerPoint. I would like to be able to seamlessly integrate more technology tools into my everyday classroom. That was my main goal to take ED 508-OL, Technology as Pedagogy.
This course has not only affirmed my goal to seamlessly integrate more technology tools into my everyday classroom, it also given me principles, guidelines and many practical tools to do that.
I would very much agree with what Sharp wrote in 2009 on p. 337 that because of the increased access to computers, teachers were concerned about the effects the computer has on instructions. Her brief rundown of some of the important research studies on computer-assisted instruction took away my doubts and affirmed my goal.
From my own teaching experience, I can certainly say that to motivate students is one of my most important tasks. Once …

Technology in Education

How to best educate youth is a question that has been around forever and will never go away. There have been many debates about what way is the most efficient, the most effective. What is the best class size? What student-to-teacher ratio works best? How long should students be in school each day? Should students have a summer break or attend school year round? Education is an immensely vital subject, and thus one that will always create questions. These questions change as the world transforms. Today, with the influx of technology, one wonders how education will change for the current generation and generations to come. So just how much of a role should technology play? Should kindergarteners receive iPads, as they have in Auburn, Maine (Srivastava)? Should computers replace books? Just how much of a place does technology have in schools? There is not a simple answer; there are many facts to support both sides. The conventional way of using books to educate presents many benefits including: simplicity of use, dependability, short-term affordability, and tangibility. The up and comi…

Impact of Digital Technology on an Aspect of Contemporary Culture

Impact of Digital Technology on an Privacy
Digital technology has been revolutionizing the world step by step over the past couple of years. The manner in which people interact, communicate and carry out their daily activities has been the highest priority of technological inventions. The internet, for example has caused major changes to the lives of individuals, corporations and the whole world as a whole. There is however some rising concerns over the effects of digital technology on contemporary culture. Today, people have turned out to be more information oriented than before. Exploring deeper and exposing personal information has not only become an obsession, but also a requirement in some quarters. Privacy is therefore one of the main aspects that digital technology has greatly affected in today’s information-oriented society.
Privacy is one thing that has significantly gotten affected by the digital technology. The ability of individuals to reveal most of their personal information in a single page has great effects to their privacy and that of others (Hand 4). Firstly, by h…

How Toy Story Helps Children Navigate Technology

Technology is rapidly growing “to infinity and beyond” from games to cars, modern technology fully encompasses our daily lives leaving society helpless without it. In the early 90’s, society knows little of how much this new technology eventually influences their children’s lives, so parents portray outwardly no problems with having companies heavily advertising new electronic products to children. The results change the world. Now, technology intertwines with the fast-paced lives of the society, leaving some frustrated parents finding it difficult on ways to teach their children to balance both modern technology and manual labor. Wisely, parents start to rely on the first thing that originally got them into them mess – the magical world of Pixar. The original Toy Story focuses on the societal view of the celebration towards the advancement of technology during the time the movie releases in 1995, which is what society needs at that time. However, by Toy Story 3(2010), young adults actively disengage in the usage of the consumerism for the latest-and-greatest technology, so the tone…

Technology and Nursing

The goal of this literature review is to increase our knowledge about technology use in practice and to identify where there is need for improvement. Information technology seems to be a widely discussed topic these days and most nurses have no clear idea how it can transform the way we do things on an every day basis. We will also look at the impact technology has on nursing, patients, and colleagues. We will then focus on a specific nursing setting, in this case the emergency room. This literature review is organized to grow on each independent section so that you, the reader, can form your own opinion, but take with you the universal understanding of how information technology will lead us down a new and exciting career path.

Technology is stated as the scientific method and material used to achieve a commercial or industrial objective. To go one step further, nursing technology is using a tool to advance nursing practice. “The Institute of medicine identified that technology as a viable method of enhancing patient care delivery and improving staff productivity” Sensme…

Exploring Nano-Robotic Technology

Since the Computer Age, researchers have striven to make all components smaller. For example, the transistor started as large vacuum tubes originally used for phone line amplification in 1947. Since then, miniaturization steps have made transistors as small as 45 nm. Furthermore, materials that have certain properties in bulk have vastly different properties in the nano-scale. With constant new miniature electronics and novel nano-materials, scientists are experimenting with radical new designs for nano-scale automation. Nano-robots have been imagined doing almost all the tedious tasks of the future; from a nano-suit that constantly grows with the user to nano-synthesis of complex objects. Although there are some obviously ridiculous ideas in science fiction regarding nano-robots, there has been much advancement of the nano-robotics field in the areas of biochips, DNA robots, nano-motors, and a conceptual nanocar. Nano-robotics holds huge promise in future applications but with the current technological limits, usable nano-robots administered by doctors for care or a nano-factory des…

Television Programming Technology

Television primetime genre shows – sitcoms, dramas, and reality programming – have traditionally given their viewers a sense of community by creating a shared viewing experience. This community depended on every fan watching at a scheduled time, missing their show at the risk of a plot spoiler or exclusion from the next day’s conversation. Now, the trend of television shows being posted to dedicated websites is making them available to watch online at any time. Presenting a challenge to the traditional real-time viewing format, this trend has led some early adopters of the online format to predict the end of television (Lotz, 2009) existing independently of a computer screen. If that prediction is true, it would mean a significant shift in the way many individuals receive entertainment, and the way even a casual fan interacts with others in their community. I argue that instead of eradicating television, making television shows available online will strengthen viewer loyalty. By allowing a potential fan to catch up with a show’s past seasons while continuing the community routine of …
