Applying ACTIONS Model DE technologies
Digital and Interactive Television
Digital and Interactive Television is accessible in which most types and levels of the
learners could access the digital and interactive television. Moreover, Digital and
Interactive Television is very flexible in which the target group could use it and
benefit from its capabilities and it fits most kinds of the learners.
In the past, it is called interactive TV because the consumers had no options to
subscribe in some channels and no options to save some clips in TV by USB so, it
wasn’t very expensive. However, now, it is called Digital and Interactive TV because
it has various options in digital to make use of the implementations of latest
technology such as subscription or using USB therefore, it is very expensive. In
addition, it depends on the size of classroom and number of students to determine if
learners need one TV each one or one TV for a group of students. One more thing, if
this technology costs a lot, there should be appropriate alternatives such as using
some offered DE technologies like Windows Live Meeting.
Teaching and Learning
It requires auditory and visual learning and they fit Distance Learning.
Furthermore, television has replaced its technology from analog to digital leading to
The best technologies for supporting teaching and learning in this environment are
Broadcasting, internet, microphone, and cameras. What’s more, content could be
integrated in DIT. This technology develops the skills of constructing and arranging
the production and distribution of information efficiently.
Interactivity and User-friendliness:
It enhances synchronous interaction and asynchronous interaction because it could
be alive and replay. Also, it is easy to use and learn DIT because it fits most of the
Organization and Institution requires Photographs, 2 D or 3 D graphics, animations
with audio visual stimulators and satellites to provide stability and support. The
barriers to using this technology successfully within the institution are Lack of the
instructional equipment and weakness of Infrastructure. Moreover, Organization
must renew the devices and follow the latest innovations in broadcasting to come up
with the development of digital-interactive television.
Naturally, the new in this technology is that there are improving data processing
rates; the capacities of computers, plus software have distinguished DIT appearance
into every aspect of life as well as in broadcasting. Its technical capabilities are
Better quality audio and video broadcast, more channels and higher capacity,
capability to correct data errors which may happen during broadcast, decrease in
generation loss due to data copying, compatible and cooperative with other
transmitting environments like the Internet, easy access to audio and video data,
editing and archiving, and provision of mutual data transfer or briefly interactivity.
The content of the courses could be combined to DIT quickly and it distributes the
courses in short period by utilizing the capabilities of DIT. Actually, materials could
be modified anytime because DIT enables the users to save the editing files so, the
content could be changed quickly.
