Below is the Main Page of Avian Flu Information site at  http://govirtual.us/avi.html -- the expectation is that you will learn a lot of about flu prevention, about "Rich Media" presentations, and 'enjoy the ride' ....





  Start      FrontPage     VIVA Quiz   Avian Flu Prev.

To take this quiz, you must have another windows open:  Click  http://govirtual.us/avi.html which access the above front page.   Note the Taskbar -- at the bottom of the screen above  -- which contains the following icons -- Read with me from the left: Start -- Microsoft FrontPage -- VIVA Quiz (this page) -- Avian Flu Prevention.  These are Programs that I have running that I can switch to by clicking on them.  Whatever is showing on your desktop, you can switch to by clicking its icon.  This way you can shift back-and-forth from the VIVA Quiz to the Avian Flu Prevention windows (or any applications for that matter!)  .   Try it!

You need to have two windows opened,  and understand that by clicking on the Taskbar you can switch Windows!...  

The Taskbar is shown in a larger image below.


Accessing the "Avian Flu Prevention"  window by typing  http://govirtual.us/avi.html, placed it on the right of the Taskbar above, and, usually,  the Taskbar is placed at the bottom of your desktop, as shown above. [If it is not, get help to have the Taskbar operating.]   So, switch to the "Avian Flu Prevention" window.

You should see a screen like one above (if not, get help).  Click #3,  "Dr. Julie Geberding:  Personal Hygiene".   Read the Text: "One very important thing is people should use good _____  _____  and that really means ..."

Restated:  Click the link above ... which opens up "Avian Flu Prevention" ... Click #3 -- read what did the CDC says about prevention.




 "People should use good ________  ______ "  -- Fill in the missing words.  Careful with your spelling!   Check your answer with the Test Button.


Technology Only:  15 points.  Search the web for these answers, if you need to:

Answer these questions:

1.  How does Technology Optimize Performance?

2.  The hyper-expanded Bell Curve is based on the Taguchi "Loss Function".   As the curve becomes narrower and taller,  performance is increased  -- What does this mean? 





Click #3   "Dr. Julie Geberding:  Personal Hygiene".   There are two ways to play the video here.  One is to access the video, wait while it loads, and when it finishes loading it plays;  the 2nd is to play it while it is loading (called 'streaming'). 

Click the bottom video, the Streaming Video.   Note the sentence:  "Play or Pause this video with the ______ button "  --  What is the missing word?   Fill in the blank.

 What button pauses / plays the video?   One word.   Check it with the Test Button.

Technology / Extra Credit:  15 points. 

I need to talk to you very seriously here.  The subject is the we have to do "Extreme Learning"  to be competitive in the Web-based Global Economy.  I, we, have to crank up our teaching techniques several notches,  and transmit learning  in the highest bandwidth!   "Rich Media" must be employed!  Podcasts, Cybercafes, wireless web access must the part of your daily life!  Everything has to go up several notches, asap.  So I am deploying video here and supporting the "wireless campus", and the day when students learn from iPods and other devices, in a continuous learning setting, using "multi-user collaborative role-playing" simulation games such as the "Island of Economia"  among others.   What is the name of the country whose students were the first to operate this simulation game -- Island of Economia?   And what awards has it won?  How effective is learning by simulation?  What did you discover from this?    Answer below.



  Click #4 -- Sen.  Obama's Podcast

Technology:  15 points.

Re the scrolling text accompanying the podcast -- note that, by using the speed control, the speed of the scrolling text could be synchronized to Sen. Obama's words.   How could this be used on  campus?  2nd,  what languages were the program to play the podcast, and control the scrolling text written in?
