Dashboards have become popular in recent years as uniquely powerful tools for communicating important information at a glance. Although dashboards are potentially powerful, this potential is rarely realized. The greatest display technology in the world won't solve this if you fail to use effective visual design. And if a dashboard fails to tell you precisely what you need to know in an instant, you'll never use it, even if it's filled with cute gauges, meters, and traffic lights. Don't let your investment in dashboard technology go to waste. ...

Presentations play an important role in both your education and career at all levels. Presentations include the integration of all skills -- reading, writing, listening, speaking, and research -- to make oral and visual communication serve an aim. In education, the aim can be to give new or cumulative information, and in the business world, to introduce new products or services and/ or revamp existing ones.
Chapter 16 - Creating visuals and data displays. In this chapter, we will address the following questions: When to use visuals and data displays, how to create effective visuals and data displays, how to integrate visuals and data displays into text, how to use conventions for specific visuals and data displays.

As technology progresses and as more and more personal data is digitized, there is even more of an emphasis required
on data security today than there has ever been. Protecting this data in a safe and secure way which does not impede the
access of an authorized authority is an immensely difficult and very interesting research problem. Many attempts have
been made to solve this problem within the cryptographic community.
In this book, we present one of these data security methods known as visual cryptography (VC).
Chapter 19 - Making oral presentations. In this chapter, students will be able to understand: Identify purposes of presentations, plan strategy for presentations, organize effective presentations, plan visuals for presentations, deliver effective presentations, handle questions during presentations.
Chapter 18a: Question about COMMUNICATIONS MANAGEMENT
1. Which of the following media can a communicator use to present information? a. b. c. d. Visual Audio and visual Tactile Visual, audio, and tactile
2. The three principal interests in maintaining good document control are: a. Timely communication, collection of performance appraisal data, and assuring proper disposal of sensitive documents. b. Timely communication, maintaining proper approvals, and communication cost control. c. Effective communication, ability to reconstruct why decisions were made, and historical value. d.
This timely and hugely practical work provides a score of examples from contemporary and historical scientific presentations to show clearly what makes an oral presentation effective. It considers presentations made to persuade an audience to adopt some course of action (such as funding a proposal) as well as presentations made to communicate information, and it considers these from four perspectives: speech, structure, visual aids, and delivery. It also discusses computer-based projections and slide shows as well as overhead projections.
Cognitive load and listening in foreign language learning
From the perspective of the modality effect, double mode, including visual and
auditory, will be expected to enhance learning performance. A study done by
Markham (1999) revealed that foreign language learners who learned with double
mode had better listening comprehension. However, from the perspective of the
redundancy effect, double mode will not be beneficial to learning. Research...
The best way to use it is to read it and find all of the parts that you like and all of the ideas, skills and techniques that you would like to work on and improve. Then take those sections and either write them down or print them so you can review them and practice.
We have been developing web applications using PHP and MySQL. But now we
want to learn how to make our applications interactive in terms of usage, and build a
community around them. In short, we want to build simple, yet powerful applications.

Event tracing is a powerful and widely-used method for analyzing the performance of
parallel programs. In the context of developing parallel programs, tracing is especially
effective for observing the interactions between different processes or threads that occur
during communication or synchronization operations and to analyze the way concurrent
activities influence each other’s performance.
