BLOGS -- A blog is a 'log' of the web. It’s a interactive site, in which people can link to other web pages or write about any topic they choose.  Many blogs are interactive, meaning others can write feedback right on the site. A blog is like a newsletter and community, all at once.

Create a Graph - Graphs and charts are great because they communicate information visually. For this reason, graphs are often used in newspapers, magazines and businesses around the world.

Javascript can be thought of as an extension to HTML which allows authors to incorporate some functionality in their web pages. JavaScript is a scripting language which is similar in syntax to Java. The JavaScript code is embedded within the HTML file and is interpreted by the client browser. JavaScript brings interaction to the web pages.

Java Applets: Java applets are programs written in Java that require a WWW browser or another Java application to run. The use of Java applets can encourage asynchronous distance learning and thus help overcome the limitations (involving both time and space) inherent in traditional instructional techniques.
