  2. 2. E-mail • Short for electronic mail, the transmission of messages over communications network. • The messages can be notes entered from the keyboard or electronic files stored on disk. Most mainframes, minicomputers, and computer networks have an e-mail system.
  3. 3. Wiki • It is a Web site that allows users to add and update content on the site using their own Web browser. • This is made possible by Wiki software that runs on the Web server. Wikis end up being created mainly by a collaborative effort of the site visitors. • A great example of a large wiki is the Wikipedia, a free encyclopaedia in many languages that anyone can edit. The term "wiki" comes from the Hawaiian phrase, "wiki wiki," which means "super-fast."

  5. 5. Html • Short for Hypertext Markup Language, the authoring language used to create documents on the World Wide Web. • HTML is similar to SGML, although it is not a strict subset. • HTML defines the structure and layout of a Web document by using a variety of tags and attributes.
  6. 6. Podcast • It is a digital medium consisting of an episodic series of audio, video, pdf, or ePub files subscribed to and downloaded through web syndication or streamed online to a computer or mobile device. • The word is a neologism and portmanteau derived from "broadcast" and "pod" from the success of the iPod, as audio podcasts are often listened to on portable media players.
  7. 7. VoIP • VoIP is a technology that allows telephone calls to be made over computer networks like the Internet. VoIP converts analog voice signals into digital data packets and supports real-time, two-way transmission of conversations using Internet Protocol. • VoIP calls can be made on the Internet using a VoIP service provider and standard computer audio systems.
  8. 8. Online Chat • Online chat may refer to any kind of communication over the Internet that offers a real-time transmission of text messages from sender to receiver. • Chat messages are generally short in order to enable other participants to respond quickly. • Thereby, a feeling similar to a spoken conversation is created, which distinguishes chatting from other text-based online communication forms such as Internet forums and email.

WWW (world wide web) • Collection of internet resources (such as FTP, telnet, usenet), hyperlinked text, audio, and video files, and remote sites that can be accessed and searched by browsers based on standards such as HTTP and TCP/IP. • Also called the web, it was created in 1989 by the UK physicist Tim Berners-Lee while working at the European Particle Physics Laboratory (called CERN after its French initials Conseil Europeen de Reserches Nucleaires) in Switzerland, as an easier way to access information scattered across the internet.

  11. 11. Streaming • Data streaming, commonly seen in the forms of audio and video streaming, is when a multimedia file can be played back without being completely downloaded first. • Most files, like shareware and software updates that you download off the Internet, are not streaming data.
