Title Crossing the boundary - analogue universe, digital worlds
Description
  • <p>This unit introduces the important distinction between our analogue world of colour, sound, taste and touch and the computer's peculiar binary world of digital entities. Concepts of the analogue universe in which we live and the digital world we create are explained. The way in which information, in the form of text, still and moving images, and sound can cross the boundary from the analogue universe into a digital world is explored. </p><p>This OpenLearn course provides a sample of Level 1 study in <span class="oucontent-linkwithtip"><a class="oucontent-hyperlink" href="http://www.open.ac.uk/courses/find/computing-and-ict?LKCAMPAIGN=ebook_&amp;MEDIA=ou">Computing &amp; ICT</a></span></p>

  • How does the computer's peculiar binary world of digital entities differ from our analogue world of colour, sound, taste and touch? This unit explores the way in which information, in the form of text, still and moving images, and sound can cross the boundary from the analogue universe into a digital world.<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/computing-and-ict/crossing-the-boundary-analogue-universe-digital-worlds/content-section-0" /> First published on Tue, 12 Jul 2011 as <a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/computing-and-ict/crossing-the-boundary-analogue-universe-digital-worlds/content-section-0">Crossing the boundary - analogue universe, digital worlds</a>.
