Creating Web Pages Without Knowing How to Create Web Pages
A look at online services, particularly Protopage, which allows you to create and host web pages for free and without knowing HTML or any software package. This page is a Protopage, so go ahead and move around the text boxes - resize things - play in the sandbox. The page will be back to my settings when you refresh or the next surfer comes by.
The XMLHttpRequest object to exchange data asynchronously with the web server.
In some Ajax frameworks and in some situations, an IFrame object is used instead
of the XMLHttpRequest object to exchange data with the web server.
Like DHTML, LAMP, or SPA, Ajax is not a technology in itself, but a term that
refers to the use of a group of technologies together. In fact, derivative/composite technologies based substantially upon Ajax, such as AFLAX, are already appearing.

I like the term "teachnology" enough that I would buy the domain and trademark it - except that others thought of it before me.
There's the portal http://www.teach-nology.com/ and, according the UMass Amherst website, "TEACHnology® is a registered trademark of Center For Teaching at the University of Massachusetts Amherst ."
So, thank you Google, for preventing me from using it "officially" and getting sued!
