Today’s EIO post is on educational language software that can help you stay competitive in the expanding globalized workforce.

 

Why Is Language Education Practical And Needed

Increasing globalization has created a large need for people in the workforce who can communicate in multiple languages. The uses of common languages are in areas such as trade, tourism, international relations, technology, media, and science.  Hundreds of languages are available for self-study, from scores of publishers, for a range of costs, using a variety of methods. But here at EIO, we recommend going with computer software.

 

Why You Should Choose PC Software As Your Learning Method

Software can interact with the individual in ways that other learning methods cannot:
1. Software fits into your schedule and is accessible at any time you are in front of your computer.  It allows people to learn at their own pace and doesn’t have the inconvenience of being required to sit in a classroom or attend a lecture.

2. Some software records the learner, analyzes the pronunciation, and gives feedback. Learning from software is like getting individual tutoring from a teacher.  It’s all one-on-one instruction.

Today’s Eio post is on programming software.

Computer Software Logos

Programming software, also known as software development tools, are programs or applications designed to create, debug, maintain, or support other computer programs and applications.

Types of Programming Software

Web Application Development

This is the creation, development, and maintenance of software applications to be used on the World Wide Web. According to Wisegeek, “web application development is performed by specialized programmers, who are familiar with the coding necessary for the creation of Web pages, including HTML, XML, Flash, Perl, CSS, PHP, JSP, ASP, and others. Each of these has a specific function and creates varied results. To varying degrees, programmers are proficient in one or more of these languages. Web application development can be varied or specific, depending on the needs of the Web pages involved.”

Adobe Dreamweaver CS5.5 Upgrade from CS2/3/4

  • Software for designing and deploying compelling websites and mobile applications
  • Design confidently using HTML5 and CSS3 with the help of Live View rendering
  • Easily add interactivity with jQuery code hinting; visualize and edit designs swiftly with CSS inspection tools
  • Deploy quickly and confidently with built-in FTPS, FTPES, and Subversion software connectivity
  • Build concurrently for phones, tablets, and screens using the Multiscreen Preview panel

Debugging Software

Debugging is a process in software development where one goes through computer code to find and deal with “bugs” in the code. Bugs are the source of errors, flaws, or security holes in the program code and instructions. This process helps ensure the best and most secure computer code to help your applications and programs run flawlessly for what they are designed to do.

Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2010

Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Professional is an integrated environment that simplifies creating, debugging and deploying applications. Unleash your creativity and bring your vision to life with powerful design surfaces and innovative collaboration methods for developers and designers. Work within a personalized environment, targeting a growing number of platforms, including Microsoft SharePoint and cloud applications and accelerate the coding process by using your existing skills. Integrated support for Test-First Development and new debugging tools let you find and fix bugs quickly and easily to ensure high quality solutions.

Top ten benefits

  1. Quickly interpret your code – The new code editor makes it easy to zoom in on your code, highlight method references, and overlay powerful features.
  2. Create rich user experiences – Use new visual designers for Windows Presentation Foundation and Silverlight to target Windows7 and the Web.
  3. Get scalability from Windows Azure – Integrated project templates, debugging, and publishing make it easy to deploy to Microsoft’s cloud computing platform.
  4. Open up new capabilities – Use integrated parallel programming support to add new capabilities on your application when it runs on a multi-core processor machine.
  5. Customize Visual Studio to fit your style – Key IDE enhancements–including support for multiple monitors and improved readability–that make the familiar environment even more productive.
  6. Use your existing skills – Work with SharePoint development, including tooling for Web Parts, Lists, Workflows, Events and more, so you can bring great new customized collaboration tools to your company.
  7. Practice Test-First Development – Focus on your application logic while all the stub code necessary for compiling your unit tests is generated by Visual Studio.
  8. Spend less time debugging – The inline call hierarchy helps quickly trace a program’s execution flow without invoking the debugger. You can also use breakpoint labels


If you desire a product that has multiple platforms and functions for creating computer programs and applications, look to the Adobe Master Collection. It has all Adobe software, including Adobe Flash, Adobe Premiere, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Audition, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Dreamweaver, Adobe Fireworks, Adobe Contribute, Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Creative Suite, and Adobe After Effects.

Adobe Master Collection CS5.5 Upgrade From Master Collection CS3

Today’s Eio post is on educational software.

Educational Software and Interactive Learning

Educational software is any type of program or game that teach the user a concrete skill or piece of information. It can teach the user a wide array of knowledge, anywhere from computer-related activities such as typing, to higher education subjects like chemistry, or even to secondary skills such as learning another language.

This type of software falls under the umbrella of interactive learning, which is a method of acquiring information through hands on, interactive means. Computers and other tangible equipment is a common means of how interactive learning is employed in schools and other learning environments.

Teacher’s Edition Software

Eio carries interactive educational software for both teachers and students. Teachers edition versions of this software holds both answer keys to interactive tests, and various methods for how to teach and/or communicate the lesson plans. It also has various tips and skills to think about when presenting the information.

Texas Instruments TI-Nspire Cas Software-Teacher

This product is Windows and Mac OS compatible. “To enhance educator’s classroom presentation options, the TI-Nspire CAS Computer Software -Teacher Edition allows educators to select a TI-SmartView emulator option to project the screen and keypad of the TI-Nspire CAS handheld to the class. The Teacher Edition is compatible with both PC/Windows and Macintosh computer platforms and will be offered as a single license only. The Teacher Edition software will be included in the TI-Nspire CAS teacher bundle and a 30-day trial of the Teacher Edition software will be included in TI-Nspire CAS teacher kits.”

Language Software

Learning a language through interactive software is no readily available. Most language programs are self-thought, meaning you have to teach yourself. It requires discipline, consistency, and practice to learn a language through software.

Eio has language learning software in English, German, Spanish, and Japanese.

Anti-Virus Software 101

eiodotcom —  July 18, 2012 — 3 Comments

Today’s Eio post is on anti-virus software.

What is it?

Anti-virus software often falls under the umbrella of internet security. These programs are designed specifically to provide computer users protection against dangers when one browses the internet. Some of these hazards include computer viruses, adware, worms, spyware, hijackers, and even identity theft. These programs help identify dangerous security threats that could adversely affect the computer’s performance, and then eliminate the threats. Some software helps prevent security issues when surfing the internet, such as protecting against identity theft.

Wisegeek gives good advice on how the software works:

After the antivirus program is installed, the user will need to register the product. When set-up is complete, the software will begin to work instantaneously. A good program will carefully monitor the computer and ultimately eliminate any viruses, spyware and threats that are found. Virus detection found on the antivirus program will typically be isolated at first. The user will then have the option of removing the danger or keeping the infected file in isolation.

Symantec 21069971 Norton Antivirus 2011 – 3 User

You’ll spend less time waiting for slow scans that bog down your computer and have more time to chat, download your favorite tunes and videos, and hang out at social networking sites.
