2. Find 3 examples of passive, reactive and interactive on the internet.

Passive

  • When you are answering questions on wordpress.
  • When you are reading reviews on the web.
  • When you are posting entries on your journal.

Reactive

  • When you enter a website and something pops up at you that you didn’t expect.
  • When you see something amazing on the web.
  • When you hear songs on the web that you do not like.

Interactive

  • When you’re chatting with your friends on MSN.
  • When you’re playing games with your friends.
  • When you enter a website and it engages you and gives response.

3. Which aspect(s) of each example is considered interactive?
For reactive, when something pops up, it engages you and sets a reaction. That is interactive.
For interactive, when you’re playing games with your friends, you tend to communicate with them and you are also engaged with the game, so it’s a two-way thing and that makes it interactive.

4.  Is there a varied degree of interactivity in each example?
Yes there is. When something pops up, it engages you and sets a reaction so that is more interactive. But the most interactive is when you are playing games, because you are focused in the game as it gives you feedback, with music and pictures and colours present, and you’re not just facing text alone. You are also chatting with your friends so that makes you react, rather than just being passive without any reaction.

5. Explain with photographs/ screen shots/ sketches of the chosen examples.
A picture speaks a thousand words.
