Conception of a simulator for a TEL system in orthopaedic surgery.
Within a research project whose aim is to promote the learning of percutaneous operation in orthopedic surgery, we investigate some representation models of empirical, deductive, and perceptivo-gestural knowledge. From these models, we design an TEL system (Tecnological Enhaced Learning) This project belongs to a multidisciplinary field including computer, orthopedic surgery, medical imaging, didactic and cognitive sciences. The article presents the design principles of TEL with a particular int
Smart Growth Effectiveness In San Diego
A research project that looks into Smart Growth policy effectiveness in one of San Diego's policy implementation sites. The effectiveness indicators used are derived from literature and are economic, political, and transportation related in nature. GIS map analyzation and SANDAG document examination was done to provide insight upon these aspects, as well as to answer the research question.
You Don't Know Molly - A Thought Experiment
Building Biographies: A Research Unit
Using handheld technology, students will research and report on a famous person. Bibliographic data and notes will be taken using Memo Pad, information will be organized in PiCo Map, reports presented through Palm eBook format, and a follow-up quiz for classmates will be developed in Quizzler. Within the project, students will learn the fundamental principles involved in completing a research project. This is designed as an integrated unit to be taught by the classroom teacher and media speciali
Science: from the lab to Second Life and across the world
We talk to Sue Stocklmayer from the Australian National University about the joys and pitfalls of international science communication; and to Rough Science's Dr Jonathan Hare about his research into Buckmeinsterfullerene. We also return to the SCHOME project (from Programme 5) and meet the students involved - in the real world! The interviews are recorded by OU staff and the programme is hosted by Dr Mike Bullivant, also from the OU/BBC television series Rough Science.
Technology Dynamics for Sustainable Innovation
Conducting innovative research is working on the edge of the known and the unknown. In creating new technology the result is never guaranteed. Society faces a tremendous challenge in order to develop in a more sustainable way. What role is there for technology in this process of change? How could we stimulate innovations in technological systems? Study Goals: At the end of the course the student is able to analyse dynamic processes of technological change within industrial corporations. The stud
Earth Science Rocks!
In this earth science themed programme, Dr Sarah Davies delve into a fantastic project - Enabling Remote Activity - which helps mobility-impaired students take part in field work. Wes Fraser also chats with Dr Mark Brandon about his fascinating research in the Antarctic. Finally, we eavesdrop on a conversation between two OU researchers - Dr Will Gosling and Dr Palavi Anand about how finding out about the past may help us to understand climate change in the future. The interviews are recorded by
aluMATTER: Crystallographic Texture in Aluminium
This selection of interactive Flash movies from the award-winning aluMATTER website available to download presents method of representing, or characterising crystallographic textures. It helps to understand how crystallographic textures are formed and how they effect properties in aluminium alloys. Crystallographic texture is necessarily very complex as it describes the orientations in 3D space of thousands or millions of individual grains.
Genetic Analysis - Question Sets
The Genetic Analysis SBLi is a set of scenarios designed to support an undergraduate course in Genetics. In the scenarios the student plays the role of a genetics researcher, and performs simulated experiments to reinforce concepts taught in lectures. This project is part of the the Higher Education Academy's UK Centre for Bioscience Open Educational Resources programme. This package contains question sets extracted from the Genetic Analysis Scenarios so that these can be easily used seperately.
Our world is driven by information. Think about how much we use Google Earth, TomTom, GPS, and satellites. In our globalised world it becomes more and more important to have an overview. Geo-information is crucial for this and people who can deal with this information as well. ‘Geo-information’ – the geographical coordinates of buildings, roads, property boundaries, water pipes, and even trees – is considered as an essential resource by both government and industry, where it is consta
Medicine Games: Immune System Defender
Play a game and find out about a Nobel Prize awarded discovery or work! Ilya Mechnikov, one of the pioneers of immune system research, inserted a thorn into a larva and noticed strange cells gathering around the thorn. The cells were eating any foreign substances entering the ruptured skin. He called these cells phagocytes meaning "devouring cells." He later shared the 1908 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with another pioneer in the same field, Paul Ehrlich.
