Blogs Blogs can be posted by anyone. Anyone who considers themselves an authority on any subject can write a blog informing (or misinforming) the public.
Videos Moving pictures that can be seen by your eyes on a magic lantern.
White Paper A white paper is an authoritative report or guide that often addresses problems and how to solve them. White papers are used to educate readers and help people make decisions. They are used in politics and business. They can also be a government report outlining policy.
Downloads Downloading is the process of transferring data from one computer to another via a network.
Reviews It is possible to read reviews of popular products that people have tried. Reviews can contain the positive and negative aspects of the product, and a recommendation.
Podcasts A podcast is a series of audio or video digital media files which are distributed over the Internet by syndicated download, through Web feeds, to portable media players and personal computers. Though the same content may also be made available by direct download or streaming, a podcast is distinguished from most other digital media formats by its ability to be syndicated, subscribed to, and downloaded automatically when new content is added. Like the term broadcast, podcast can refer either to the series of content itself or to the method by which it is syndicated; the latter is also called podcasting. The host or author of a podcast is often called a podcaster.
Webcast A webcast is a media file distributed over the Internet using streaming media technology. A webcast may either be distributed live or on demand. Essentially, webcasting is “broadcasting” over the Internet.
