Efficient object based streaming framework for web-based education
An efficient moving object extraction algorithm suitable for real-time content-based multimedia streaming systems is proposed in this paper. A Motion Vector (MV) based object extraction is used to dynamically detect the objects. To utilize the bandwidth efficiently, the important object can be real time detected, encoded, and transmitted with higher quality and higher frame rate than those of background. In order to meet the real-time requirement, no computationally intensive operation is includ

The defining characteristics of intelligent tutoring systems research: ITSs care, precisely
his paper argues that, despite the changes in philosophies and techniques that have occurred since ITS research began, there are continuous threads running through this research which define its essential and distinctive nature. In particular, ITSs are computer-based learning systems which attempt to adapt to the needs of learners and are therefore the only such systems which attempt to 'care' about learners in that sense. Also, ITS research is the only part of the general IT and education fie

Making the History of 1989: The Fall of Communism in Eastern Europe
Making the History of 1989 materials were developed because teachers and their students have little access to vivid historical documents in English that convey the epochal events of 1989. Project materials utilize recent advances in our understanding of how historical learning takes place, including complex interaction with sources, recursive reading, and skills used by historians. The site has three key features: a substantial collection of high quality primary sources; a set of multimedia int

Why is Nanotechnology Multidisciplinary? A perspective of one EE
The field of nano-science and nano-technology covers a broad area of expertise. Classical fields of Physics, Chemistry, Material Science, Electrical/Mechanical/Chemical Engineering all are involved in the "new" field f nano. Research and development in that area is by its very nature multi-disciplinary, since I bridge a large length scale from atoms to systems and timescales from femto seconds to eternity. This presentation will give a personal perspective of an electrical engineer in the area o

This course covers the following questions. What are the predominant heat producing elements of the Earth? Where and how much are they? Are they present in the core of the Earth? Detection of antineutrinos generated in the Earth provides: 1) information on the sources of the terrestrial heat, 2) direct test of the Bulk Silicate Earth (BSE) model and 3) testing of non-conventional models of Earth's core. Use of antineutrinos to probe the deep interior of our planet is becoming practical due to re

Marine Technology
Designs for the high seas In years past, there was hardly any job more hazardous than to sail the seas. These days, we take it for granted that cargo ships can safely navigate the seas – largely because of technological advances in marine technology. These same technologies make it possible to extract oil from the seabed and load it on to a tanker in high winds and heavy seas. If you are intrigued by the technologies that allow for the construction of highly complex modern ships, the exploita
