Introductions• Austin Stroud • Instructional designer at the library, and I also am an adjunct faculty member at Ivy Tech where I teach Library Technology, Intro to Micrcomputers (Microsoft Office), and a First Year Seminar on how to be successful in college.• Your experience: • Have you used email before? If so, what websites have you used for email? • What do you think of using email to communicate with friends, family, and co- workers?
What is E-mail?E-mail or email (both acceptable) stands for electronicmail. The difference between e-mail and traditional mail isthat e-mail is much quicker. Once you send an e-mail toanother person, they receive it instantly. This other personmay not check their e-mail instantly, but it is a much moreefficient and quick way to communicate with others thantraditional postal mail.
