EdyounetTeleClassroom (in India) provides Technology Enabled Interactive Learning platform for Distance Education. Education courses from a studio can be LIVE streamed to any number of Tele Classrooms simultaneously. Tele-Classrooms are very useful for Distance Learning such as Village Education.
Reinvent - to present yourself/something in a new form or with a new image.
For example, a doctor at one location can have a conference with a doctor at another location to discuss a bone X-ray. Live images of each doctor, along with the X-ray, are displayed on each doctor’s computer.
Telesurgery enables surgeons to direct robots to perform an operation via computers connected to a high-speed network.
These Web sites also maintain lists of doctors and dentists to help you find the one that suits your needs. They have chat rooms, so that you can talk to others diagnosed with similar conditions. Some Web sites even allow you to order prescriptions online.
Tiny computers now imitate functions of the central nervous system, retina of the eye, and cochlea of the ear.
Scientists create neural networks by connecting thousands of processors together much like the neurons in the brain are connected.
Global positioning system (GPS): Navigation system that consists of one or more earth-based receivers that accept and analyze signals sent by satellites in order to determine the receiver’s geographic location.

Health Care For example: • A doctor at one location can have a conference with a doctor at another location to discuss a bone X-ray. Live images of each doctor, along with the X-ray, are displayed on each doctor’s computer. 18
Health Care Telesurgery: • Surgery in which a surgeon performs an operation on a patient who is not located in the same physical room as the surgeon. 19
Health Care Medline: • Many Web sites provide up-to-date medical, fitness, nutrition, or exercise information. 20
Science All branches of science, use computers to assist them with collecting, analyzing, and modeling data. Breakthroughs in surgery, medicine, & treatments often result from scientists’ use of computers. Example of applications: • A cochlear implant. • An electrodes implant. • A neural network. 21
Science A cochlear implant: • Allows a deaf person to listen. 22
Science An electrodes implant: • Electrodes implanted in the brain stop tremors associated with Parkinson’s disease. 23
Science A neural network: • A system that attempts to imitate the behavior of the human brain. 24
Publishing The process of making works available to the public. These works include books, magazines, newspapers, music, film, and video. Many publishers make their works available online & some Web sites allow you to copy the work, such as a book or music.
