Email: Definition: Electronic mail, often abbreviated as email, e.mail or e-mail, is a method of exchanging digital messages, designed primarily for human use. E-mail systems are based on a store-and-forward model in which e- mail computer server systems accept, forward, deliver and store messages on behalf of users, who only need to connect to the e-mail infrastructure, typically an e-mail server, with a network-enabled device (e.g., a personal computer) for the duration of message submission or retrieval. Originally, e-mail was always transmitted directly from one user's device to another's; nowadays this is rarely the case. Features of email:  Check your spelling.  Use a variety of fonts, colors, and sizes in your e-mail messages.  Group your e-mail messages in a variety of ways.  Be reminded of upcoming events.  Viewing your calendar one week at a time. Changing the color scheme. Advantages of Email:  Email Is A Push Technology  Email Waits For You  Email Is One-To-Many

    • Voice mail:  Definition: Voicemail (or voice mail, voice-mail, vmail or VMS, sometimes called message bank) is a centralized system of managing telephone messages for a large group of people. The term is also used more broadly, to denote any system of conveying voice message, including the answering machine. Features of Voicemail  answer many phones at the same time.  store incoming voice messages in personalized mailboxes. associated with the user’s phone number .  enable users to forward received messages to another voice mailbox .  send messages to one or more other user voice mailboxes .  add a voice introduction to a forwarded message.  store voice messages for future delivery .  phone number for personal assistance.  Compatible with all e-mail programs  Multi-Language Support  Send, forward, and reply to messages.  Send messages to a distribution list.  Turn your phone number into a bulletin board or information center.  Store messages in an archive.

    •  Option of Detailed Messages: As opposed to leaving a message with a secretary, people can leave detailed messages on voice mail answering machines. Then you know you're getting the correct information.  No Lost Messages: Since voice mail messages are stored with the phone company, there is a smaller chance that a message could get lost. This is especially important for businesses that want to ensure dependability.  Password Protection: Unlike classic answering machines, voice mail has password protection so you can prevent others from hearing your messages.  Enlarged Message Size: Most voice mail systems have a 5-minute message size limit. You won't have to worry about getting cut off by the machine again.  Voice mail allows the personal touch of voice communication (lets learners develop a better sense of the people behind the course).  Learners can communicate with each other at anytime, from any place with available telephones.  Voice mail can pickup at any time.  Voice mail can pickup at any time. Limitation of Voicemail: • Function: Voicemail: is made to store a message that another person leaves for you. The system should notify you when you have a message. • Password: Many people forget their voicemail password, which causes them to get locked out. • Alerts: Your phone should alert you when you have a voicemail. • Receiving: Not receiving voicemail at all can cause you to miss out on very important messages • Warning: There is a difference between not knowing how to set up or retrieve voicemail, and there being an actual malfunction with it. The length of the message may be limited to 3 or fewer minutes. How use voicemail to deliver and support learning? When you leave a message:
    •  Know what you want to say.  Identify yourself.  Keep the message brief.  Speak clearly and loudly enough to be recorded.  If you don’t receive a response within two most days at most, make a follow up call. When you play your voice mail:  Write down the caller’s name, phone number, and purpose of the message.  Listen to the rest of the message.  Save the message.  Replay the message to check the information and pat attention to vocal cues indicating the caller’s mood.  Respond to the message after you’ve played all message Concerns about Voicemail. Studies show voice mail use in rapid decline among texting young people:  Found that people under 30 often leave voice messages and respond to texts for a few minutes.  Suggests that voice mail as we know it might be going extinct, to be supplanted by using SMS text messaging,e-mail and social networking services accessed via cell phone, and relatively new technologies that will transcribe voice messages to text.
