The prefix e-means implicitly understood electronics technology based on digital electronics.

E-book (Electronic Book) is one that utilizes computer technology to display multimedia information in a concise and dynamic. In addition, an e-book can be integrated with a variety of impressions, such as:
? sound,
? graphs,
? image
? animation, and
? movie
so the information is presented more in terms of interface and minimalist, as compared with conventional books because the e-book is the displacement of conventional book into electronic form that can be displayed by the computer. With this technology, of course, hundreds of books can be stored in one CD only.
e-learning is a teaching model utilizing electronic technology as a means of presenting and distributing information. In the definition is covered by radio and television broadcasts of education as one form of e-learning. Although by definition radio and television education is one form of e-learning, is generally agreed that e-learning reaches its peak form after synergize with internet technology. Internet-based learning or web-based learning in its simplest form is a web-site that used to present learning materials. This allows learners to access learning resources provided by resource persons or facilitators whenever desired. If needed, can also provide a special mailing-list for the learning site which serves as a forum for discussion, or with a Video Conference which is currently widely used some school or university to conduct direct instruction (Online) with schools or universities abroad.

Included in this category is the e-zine e-newspaper that focuses on the latest news and e-journal that focuses on reporting research results.

E-laboratory represents a digital form of facilities and laboratory processes can be simulated digitally. Basically, this software is the animation and simulation software that can be packaged in a CD, DVD and presented in this web-site as a web-based applications (software that runs on Internet network).


Blogs or weblogs are the latest developments in the field of web-based applications. The idea originally started by providing an electronic diary (electronic diaries) for adolescents. Users (Users) can fill in the diary as easy as writing an email, upload (upload) to the server simply by clicking on the icon, and the result is the impression the writing on the browser screen. Internet users in Indonesia and abroad can view these publications by accessing a website address easily and quickly, for example:

• http://yusran.blog.unsoed.ac.id
• http://freeofmp3.blogspot.com
• http://yusran-kurniawan.blog.friendster.com
Dilihjat content in terms of its content, is currently a blog containing a lot of ideas, ideas, and personal opinions about an interesting issue subjectively. Although the accuracy of the information presented is debatable, but most of all blogs allow someone who does not have a web-site design knowledge can easily create a personal web-site and manage and update content very easily and with a short time.
Besides the ease of availability of many other free blog servers. In the context of their utilization for the learning process, the content of the blog content of learners, for example, can be feedback to the facilitators and indirectly can be Jurnalist because it can provide any information to the community with language and thought to himself.

New Technology To Give Internet Advertising a Boost

by on Apr.22, 2010, under Information Technology

internet_1Scientists at the University of Toronto have developed a new technology that promises to give a boost to Internet advertising.

Placing Internet ads on websites easier and more profitable in the future as the latest technology allows ads to be resized to fit any available website space.

Internet ads are currently only available in three or four specific sizes, meaning websites must be designed around the ads. The size restrictions greatly limit ad placement options and affect the way ads look on devices such as the iPhone and iPad.

However, the new technology, developed by UofT Electrical and Computer Engineering associate professor Parham Aarabi, enables ads to be resized automatically to conform to any web space.

“Currently, a significant portion of usable website spaces are not used for advertising because the standard size ads don't fit,” said Aarabi.

“Our technology is the first ever to conform ads to any available website space in an automated and practical way. Essentially, advertisers provide a single ad at a preset size, and our technology can, automatically and dynamically, regenerate the ad at any size, resolution, or aspect ratio by taking into account the contents of the ad, relevant text, and other information,” Aarabi added.

He added that the technology would translate into profit because formerly wasted web space can be used for advertising.

“Given an online advertising market worth billions of dollars, this technology could significantly increase revenues for publishers, and create new opportunities for advertisers,” Aarabi said.The concept will be presented at the World Wide Web 2010 Conference in late April in Raleigh, North Carolina.
