In computer-based training (CBT), also called computer-assisted instruction (CAI), collaborative learning incorporates a wide array of communications tools, including Internet-based communication, to enable groups of learners to develop knowledge through interaction.
)To compress a view of a hierarchy so that only the roots of each branch are visible. The opposite of collapse is expand, which makes the entire branch visible.
- collapsed backbone
A network backbone that consists of the backplane of a single switch, rather than multiple switches connected together. From the ports of the single switch, cables connect to the hubs of individual LAN segments. Collapsed backbones are typically used for mid-sized LAN networks. The architecture is easier to manage, easier to keep secure and less […]
In printing terminology, collate means to print in sets when multiple copies are sent to the printer.
The situation that occurs when two or more devices attempt to send a signal along the same channel at the same time. The result of a collision is generally a garbled message. All computer networks require some sort of mechanism to either prevent collisions altogether or to recover from collisions when they do occur.
- collision avoidance
A means of proactively detecting whether a node on an Ethernet network can transmit a signal without risk that it will collide with other traffic on the network.
