Recent studies suggest that the number of LEED Certified architecture projects in San Diego is primarily limited by fiscal cost. This research report examines the economic costs and benefits which a LEED Certification places upon projects applying to become certified by the United States Green Building Council. The Research Strategy focuses upon several primary case studies of San Diego’s LEED certified buildings and in-depth interviews with LEED Certified architects. The analysis aims to p

The American transportation system has become increasingly dependent on one mode of transportation, the personal automobile. Throughout the 20th century the American transit system of the postwar boom developed in favor of the automobile, especially in the sprawling cities of the west coast, like San Diego. The developed transportat

Providing feedback in web-based learning
In distance learning supported by LMS, it is extremely important to provide automated or partially automated feedback about learning outcomes to students as well as feedback about the efficiency and quality of teaching and learning to teachers and to management of the institution that provides web-based learning courses. In this article, we present the solutions implemented in the LMS eCampus that are theoretically grounded and have been proved in praxis.

When Transportation Planning Meets Innovative Design
Transit-oriented development (TOD) has gained currency in the United States as a means of promoting smart growth, injecting vitality into inner-city settings, and expanding life choices. This research project analyzed the Uptown District Project of 1988, a case which has served as a model for successful transit-oriented development in the form of mixed-use infill development for many communities. The study examined its success, not only in terms of the environment its compact mixed-use buildings
Eliminating Plastic Bags
The success and popularity of the plastic bag has caused more negative environmental impact than was ever anticipated. Though plastic bags occupy less than four percent of all landfill space, it can take anywhere from a hundred to a thousand years to decompose. In an effort to curb these damaging changes, various cities and countries from around the world have proposed solutions. The two most common fixes being either to ban plastic bags or charge a bag tax. As more new data and research rev

This video explains why trapezoids are one of the most common quadrilaterals. A trapezoid has one pair of parallel sides. When a trapezoid has two sets of parallel sides, it is a more specific type of trapezoid called a parallelogram. A more specific type of trapezoid is called an isosceles trapezoid. In addition to one pair of parallel sides, isosceles trapezoid properties include congruent legs, base angles and diagonals. (1:41)

In this article we discuss key requirements for collecting behavioural data concerning technology-supported collaborative learning activities. It is argued that the common practice of analysis of computer generated logfiles of user interactions with software tools is not enough for building a thorough view of the activity. Instead more contextual information is needed to be captured in multiple media like video, audio files, snapshots, etc, in order to re-construct the learning process. A softwa
