A formal writing style is not necessarily “better” than an informal style, rather each style serves a different purpose and care should be taken in choosing which style to use in each case.
Writing for professional purposes is likely to require the formal style, although individual communications can use the informal style once you are familiar with the recipient.
Note that emails tend to lend themselves to a less formal style than paper-based communications, but you should still avoid the use of “text talk”.
If in doubt as to how formal your writing should be, it is usually better to err on the side of caution and be formal rather than informal.
State main points confidently and offer full support arguments. A formal writing style shows a limited range of emotions and avoids emotive punctuation such as exclamation points, ellipsis, etc., unless they are being cited from another source.
Information technology refers to the collection of tools and technologies that make it easy for individuals, businesses and other organizations to use, create, manage and exchange information.
New developments in information technology have fundamentally transformed the way in which business is carried out. The increasing power and falling costs of computers have made information storage, analysis and distribution faster, easier and less expensive than at any time before in human history.
The Internet has removed geographical barriers, making it possible for companies to source material from one country, process it in another country, package it in yet another country and sell the final product globally.KEEP READING
If you want a brief history of information technology, here is one. Humans were the first “computers”. Then machines were invented to carry out the computational tasks. Now these machines have given way to new form of information technology. Information has become accessible from anywhere.
Information technology deals with the acquisition, processing, storage and dissemination of vocal, pictorial, textual and numerical information by a microelectronics-based combination of computing and telecommunications. Thanks to the continuous development of computers, the original computing systems became minicomputers and later personal computers took the lead. Nowadays, mobile phones are dethroning the personal computer and computing is evolving faster to become disembodied more like a cloud, becoming accessible more easily whenever needed. Information technology in this sense has transformed people and companies and has allowed digital technology to influence society and economy alike.KEEP READING
As a result of the increasing application of ICTs in education, a number of new learning approaches have emerged. E-learning encompasses learning at all levels, formal as well as non-formal, using information networks such as the Internet, an intranet (LAN) or extranet (WAN) for course delivery, interaction and facilitation. Blended learning refers to learning models that combine traditional classroom practice with e-leaning solutions. The blending of different methods was developed after educators recognized that not all learning is best achieved in an electronically-mediated environment, in particular one that dispenses with a live instructor altogether.
Open and distance learning is a learning approach in which teacher and learner are separated in time or place and uses a variety of media, including print and electronic, to ensure a two-way communication that allows tutors and learners to interact.KEEP READING
