When communication researchers make claims about the relationship of media to individuals or society, they use the term media to mean a variety of things. In this case, is the researcher talking about the television signals in the air, people who work at television stations, people who produce or act in television programs, the television programs themselves, television receiving sets, or some or all of these things? Of course, the research context, setting, and constraints usually define what is meant by the term television as a medium, but how can researchers talk about new media that involve communication on computer networks?

Email: ccc bapress. Marcia G. Computer programming is a cognitive and formal problem solving process that can involve many possible solutions. Thus, manual evaluation of programming exercises is an onerous task, in particular in the case of numerous exercises and programming classes with many students. Once the assessment is automated, the effort put forth by teachers can be reduced; however, he should consider all possible solutions for each exercise to create model solutions or to train automatic assessment systems.
REPORT ON COMPUTER NETWORKING AND COMMUNICATION
Barry M. The Internet has revolutionized the computer and communications world like nothing before. The invention of the telegraph, telephone, radio, and computer set the stage for this unprecedented integration of capabilities. The Internet is at once a world-wide broadcasting capability, a mechanism for information dissemination, and a medium for collaboration and interaction between individuals and their computers without regard for geographic location. The Internet represents one of the most successful examples of the benefits of sustained investment and commitment to research and development of information infrastructure. Beginning with the early research in packet switching, the government, industry and academia have been partners in evolving and deploying this exciting new technology. This is intended to be a brief, necessarily cursory and incomplete history.

Brief History of the Internet
A communication protocol is a system of rules that allow two or more entities of a communications system to transmit information via any kind of variation of a physical quantity. The protocol defines the rules, syntax , semantics and synchronization of communication and possible error recovery methods. Protocols may be implemented by hardware , software , or a combination of both.
A network protocol is an established set of rules that determine how data is transmitted between different devices in the same network. Essentially, it allows connected devices to communicate with each other, regardless of any differences in their internal processes, structure or design. Network protocols are the reason you can easily communicate with people all over the world, and thus play a critical role in modern digital communications. Neither local area networks LAN nor wide area networks WAN could function the way they do today without the use of network protocols. Network protocols take large-scale processes and break them down into small, specific tasks or functions. This occurs at every level of the network, and each function must cooperate at each level to complete the larger task at hand.
A computer network is a group of computers that use a set of common communication protocols over digital interconnections for the purpose of sharing resources located on or provided by the network nodes. The interconnections between nodes are formed from a broad spectrum of telecommunication network technologies, based on physically wired, optical, and wireless radio-frequency methods that may be arranged in a variety of network topologies. The nodes of a computer network may include personal computers , servers , networking hardware , or other specialised or general-purpose hosts. They are identified by hostnames and network addresses. Hostnames serve as memorable labels for the nodes, rarely changed after initial assignment. Network addresses serve for locating and identifying the nodes by communication protocols such as the Internet Protocol. Computer networks may be classified by many criteria, for example, the transmission medium used to carry signals, bandwidth , communications protocols to organize network traffic, the network size, the topology, traffic control mechanism, and organizational intent.

Defining Internet-based, Computer-mediated Communication
Computer network , two or more computers that are connected with one another for the purpose of communicating data electronically. Besides physically connecting computer and communication devices, a network system serves the important function of establishing a cohesive architecture that allows a variety of equipment types to transfer information in a near-seamless fashion. LANs connect computers and peripheral devices in a limited physical area, such as a business office, laboratory, or college campus, by means of links wires, Ethernet cables, fibre optics , Wi-Fi that transmit data rapidly. A typical LAN consists of two or more personal computers , printers, and high-capacity disk-storage devices called file servers, which enable each computer on the network to access a common set of files. LAN operating system software , which interprets input and instructs networked devices, allows users to communicate with each other; share the printers and storage equipment; and simultaneously access centrally located processors, data, or programs instruction sets. WANs connect computers and smaller networks to larger networks over greater geographic areas, including different continents. They may link the computers by means of cables, optical fibres , or satellites , but their users commonly access the networks via a modem a device that allows computers to communicate over telephone lines.
