Instructional Technologists
 Instructional technology is often referred to as a part of
 educational technology. The purpose of instructional
 technology, of course, is the promotion of learning. Learning
 theory (education) has influenced Instructional design and
 Instructional designers (the practitioners of Instructional
 Technology). Instructional Technologists promote
 communication and interactivity. These two come together
 under the general heading of Interaction.
          Web Designer

 Web design is the skill of designing presentations of content (usually
  hypertext or hypermedia) that is delivered to an end-user through the
  World Wide Web, by way of a Web browser or other Web-enabled
  software like Internet television clients.

Responsibilities include:
    Designing Web pages, Web sites, Web applications or multimedia for the
      Web may utilize multiple disciplines, such as animation, authoring,
      communication design, corporate identity, graphic design, human-
      computer interaction, information architecture, interaction design,
      marketing, photography, search engine optimization and typography.
               Software Developer
 A software developer is a person or organization concerned with facets
  of the software development process wider than design and coding, a
  somewhat broader scope of computer programming or a specialty of
  project managing including some aspects of software product
  management. A programmer is responsible for writing code, however a
  developer’s responsibilities may include:

 Software:
    Specification
    Design
    Implementation
    Testing
    Maintenance
Computer Engineer
 Computer Engineering is a discipline that combines elements of both Electrical
  Engineering and Computer Science. Computer engineers usually have training
     Electrical engineering
     Software design
     Hardware-software integration instead of only software engineering or electrical
 Computer engineers are involved in many aspects of computing, from the
  design of individual microprocessors, personal computers, and
  supercomputers, to circuit design. This field of engineering not only focuses on
  how computer systems themselves work, but also how they integrate into the
  larger picture. Usual tasks involving computer engineers include writing
  software and firmware, designing analog sensors, designing mixed signal
  circuit boards, and designing operating systems. Computer engineers are also
  suited for robotics research,which relies heavily on using digital systems to
  control and monitor electrical systems like motors, communications, and
     Computer Technician

 A computer repair technician is a person who repairs and maintains computers and
  servers. The technician's responsibilities may extend to include:
     Building or configuring new hardware,
     Installing and updating software packages,
     Creating and maintaining computer networks.
 Computer repair technicians work in a variety of settings, encompassing both the public
  and private sectors.
     A repair technician might work in a corporate information technology department, a
      central service center, or a retail computer sales environment.
     A public sector technician might work in the military, national security or law
      enforcement communities, health or public safety field, or an educational
      institution. Despite the vast variety of work environments, all computer technicians
      perform similar physical and investigative processes, including technical support.
      Experienced technicians might specialize in fields such as data recovery, system
      administration, or information systems.
                                Data Entry
 Organizations need to process a
  rapidly growing amount of
  information. Data entry and
  information processing workers help
  ensure the smooth and efficient
  handling of information. By keying in
  text, entering data into a computer,
  operating a variety of office machines,
  and performing other clerical duties,
  these workers help organizations keep
  up with the rapid changes that are
  characteristic of today’s “Information
  Age.” Data entry and information
  processing workers are known by
  various other titles, including word
  processors, typists, and data entry
  keyers, and less commonly, electronic
  data processors, keypunch
  technicians, and transcribers.
          Electrical Engineer
 Electrical engineering is a field of engineering that deals with the study and
  application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism. The field covers
  a range of subtopics including power, electronics, control systems, signal
  processing and telecommunications.
 Electronic engineering deals with the study of small-scale electronic systems
  including computers and integrated circuits. Alternatively, electrical
  engineers are usually concerned with using electricity to transmit energy,
  while electronic engineers are concerned with using electricity to transmit
 From the Global Positioning System to electric power generation, electrical
  engineers have contributed to the development of a wide range of
  technologies. They design, develop, test and supervise the deployment of
  electrical systems and electronic devices. For example, they may work on the
  design of telecommunication systems, the operation of electric power
  stations, the lighting and wiring of buildings, the design of household
  appliances or the electrical control of industrial machinery.
    Web Administrator
 The webmaster , also called the web architect, the web developer, the site author, the
  website administrator, or (informally) the webmeister, is the person responsible for
  designing, developing, marketing, or maintaining a website. On community websites,
  webmasters are able to change and manipulate any comment that the users make.
  Webmasters are practitioners of web communication. Typically, they are generalists with
  HTML expertise who manage most or all aspects of Web operations. Webmasters
  typically know scripting languages such as PHP, Perl and Javascript. They may also be
  required to know how to configure web servers such as Apache and serve as the server
 Core responsibilities of the webmaster may include:
    The regulation and management of access rights of different users of a website
    The appearance and setting up website navigation
    Content placement can be part of a webmaster's responsibilities, while content
     creation is typically not
              Multimedia Developers

 Are individuals who combine artistic ability with technical proficiency design and create
  multimedia products. On a typical project, a team leader will meet with clients to determine what
  they hope to accomplish with their interactive multimedia communication—whether it is a Web
  site for consumers, an electronic "sales kit" for marketers, or a computer game with the latest in
  realistic special effects and graphics. Team leaders then work with designers who help to lay out the
  "storyline" of the multimedia presentation using flowcharts; art directors who design the look of
  the presentation; and programmers who write the computer code to translate the ideas into a
  workable computer program.
 In general, multimedia developers must be very people oriented. To succeed in the field, it is
  necessary to be able to listen well to clients and coworkers, to communicate ideas and instructions
  accurately, and to work well as a team member. Technological skill is just as important as people
  skills. Multimedia developers must stay up-to-date with the rapidly changing field of
  computer/digital technology, new developments in programming languages, and tools that can
  make standard operating procedures obsolete virtually overnight. Finally, multimedia developers
  must be adept at project management, including budgeting and scheduling.
               Computer Programmer
 Computer programming (often shortened to programming or coding) is the process of
  writing, testing, debugging/troubleshooting, and maintaining the source code of computers.
  There is an ongoing debate on the extent to which the writing of programs is an art, a craft or
  an engineering discipline. Good programming is generally considered to be the measured
  application of all three, with the goal of producing an efficient and evolvable software
 Computer programmers are those who write computer software. Their jobs usually involve:
     Coding
     Compilation
     Documentation
     Integration
     Maintenance
     Requirements analysis
     Software architecture
     Software testing
     Specification
     Debugging
                     Graphics Artist
A graphic designer (artist) is a professional within the
graphic design and graphic arts industry who assembles
together images, typography or motion graphics to
create a piece of design. A graphic designer creates the
graphics primarily for published, printed or electronic
media, such as brochures and advertising. They are also
sometimes responsible for typesetting, illustration and
web design, or take a teaching position, although these
specialties may be assigned to specialists in various
graphic design occupations. A core responsibility of the
designer's job is to present information in a way that is
both accessible and aesthetic.
