[../]=anchor
is a way to go up one link. This is a vital command if you are learning to access other files. This command saves time and effort and makes for more accessible Cyberspace.
[Labreport]=anchor
is a file in which you store information that you have gained from surfing the net. It also is a journal which allows you to keep track what you have done.
[Book mark]=anchor
is a mark that allows you to see where you have been. In Ryan Higa's file I learned that we don't have to navigate through Cyberspace in order to go somewhere if you use book marks.
[Anchor]=anchor
is like a link but allows to you to link to others specific topics.
[html]=anchor
is a type of writing that tells the computer what to do with your document. After readingR.Noguchi's files I finally learned what html stands for. I couldn't locate it in my notes and I was too embarrassed to ask anyone else. So thanks to Mr. Noguchi I learned that html stands for hyper text mark up language.
[Stress]=anchor
is energy that either inhibits actions or increases action.
[Navigate]=anchor
is what you do in order to get anywhere, it is the actual seeking of information and of exploring hyper space. I read over Ryan Higa's glossary file and discovered that he stated it simply.He said navigating is" searching Cyberspace using links."

[Web Master]=anchor
is an individual who is an expert in surfing the web. Who also helps novices to navigate the web.
Dumb Terminal(anchor)
is the use of computers to access the Internet. After perusing other students glossaries I came upon a students glossary entry which I found to be extremely long so I felt that if I didn't link to it. He would probably get offended and not link to mine. I felt especially encouraged to link to it after he spent a lot of time putting it into his glossary files. Barry Kwock's definition of Dumb terminals overviews other students glossaries as well. Baud-rate
is the speed at which the computer down loads information. see Joleen's definition I enjoyed her definition of baud rate because I forgot that information travels over the phone line and into the computer system. It didn't occur to me that the rate at which information travels could be altered.

Netiquette
PC has become a slang a term in our lifestyles and our lives. To be PC for many of us is no longer and option but a must. My definition of PC (politically correct) behavior while online is to be careful what you type on the computer for it is accessible by the entire world. For other definitions of PC Behavior check out Carols' definition of netiquette.

Information Shock is what happens in this class, it feels like we're in some kind of experiment. I don't know about you folks but it feels like we are trapped in a maze and Prof. James wants to see which way we run. I tried to link my article to Kyle Fujiis' but he doesn't have a link. I just wanted to quote what he said. Information shock is "The way individuals act when put in a foreign environment, especially when dealing with computers. If you could see me right now, I could show you an example."
CD-ROM
is the stuff that makes the computer run. I don't know so I checked. Asahina's definition of Cd-Rom and now I know. My update on the definition of ROM is read only memory. GO TO THE TOP

Constructs.

is a term that I use. What I mean when I say constructs is that I believe that as children we learned to associate words with pictures, and therefore all the knowledge that we attain is tied to previously learned associations. An example of this would be when we say a word or hear a word the picture instantly pops into our head. Not because the word has meaning but we have learned to associate the word with the object, and thus memory is attained. This is one of my philosophies of learning. I believe that constructs are picture that are tied together after years of associating two random variable or pictures. I have found this theory to apply to all the learning situations that I have placed in growing up. I do not think however that learning is tied to visualization. I believe that blind people also can learn but in a varied way. The reason I believe that constructs exist is due to the associations people create in their minds. I believe that because we are a visual society, all learning occurs in the context of visual perceptions. Thus, we learn by using pre-formed constructs. Whenever I learn something new be it physics, atoms or psychology theories I find that the only time that I can learn something is when I can visualize it.

Thus I believe that constructs are visualizations of the unseen and the UN-foreseeable. Thus I believe that constructs such as Kuhlthaus' searching for meaning is a process construct.

Cyberspace Learning Community Is similar to a community for example a small town which is faced with a problem such as a hurricane. In the scenario that I propose a Cyberspace learning community would be similar to having to deal with a mutual problem. If they don't solve the problem of getting food to all the members of the community, the community will starve and die. In a Cyberspace learning community we interact in a class but mostly on the Cyberspace highways. It is this interaction that is similar to putting bread on the table to eat. If the CSLC=(Cyberspace learning community) pulls together they will survive and flourish, but if no one works or shares the food(html hyper text documents) the community will dwindle or die.(fail psychology 409)
