    4 star(s)

    The Internet has become one large cyber library with enormous amounts of information provided on almost every topic imaginable. The Internet is one collective site that provides one with all the information one could possibly hope for. Using the Internet saves a lot of time as opposed to searching through books upon books in a library just to find a page where the topic concerned is mentioned briefly. Search Engines such as Google and Yahoo provide you with instant access to hundreds of websites and files concerning the topic you wish to research. It takes a few seconds to type on your topic on a search engine and within moments, all the information you require is at the tip of your fingers.

    STELLA Science Simulation Software.

    Simulation can be used to show the eventual real effects of alternative conditions and courses of action. Simulation is also used when the real system cannot be engaged, because it may not be accessible, or it may be dangerous or unacceptable to engage, or it is being designed but not yet built, or it may simply not exist. Simulation is extensively used for educational purposes. It is frequently used by way of adaptive hypermedia. Simulation is often used in the training of civilian and military personnel.

  • Evaluate the tools and techniques used to create finished animations

    "Conclusion Overall I don't think that fireworks is a very good animation making program, everything just seems a little static to me, and there is not much going on. I prefer the flash animation over this because you are able to create animations allot faster than you can with the others. I believe that Photoshop is a very good animation program but it is hard to use. Really i don't think that fireworks is very good, it's ok for beginners to show them how animations work and how to create them but that's pretty much it."

    "To conclude, we sum up by reiterating Masiiwa and Kabanda's definition that a database is a logically coherent collection of data with some inherent meaning. By data, they mean the known facts that can be recorded and have implicit meaning. Organisations need this system or a DBMS in place because it stores tonnes of information that otherwise would be cumbersome to retrieve if everything was on lever arch files and papers and in employees offices."
