Sixense: Wireless STEM System
Sixense represents a major next step in emerging technology for virtual reality gaming for the e-Generation of students. It's been said that the e-Generation of students are already proficient in Instant Messaging, Social Networking, and Gaming. And they will spend over 10,000+ hours performing these tasks before reaching the age of 21. Teachers familar with Second Life, Woozworld, Smallworlds, Imvu, and others know how these "avatars" and "virtual worlds" can be spun-off in creating interactive

This is a resource released as part of the E-Portfolio Toolkit based on experience of developing the “Year Abroad E-Portfolio”, undertaken by the School of Languages at Leeds Metropolitan University.
6.830 Database Systems (MIT)
This course relies on primary readings from the database community to introduce graduate students to the foundations of database systems, focusing on basics such as the relational algebra and data model, schema normalization, query optimization, and transactions. It is designed for students who have taken MIT course 6.033 (or equivalent); no prior database experience is assumed though students who have taken an undergraduate course in databases are encouraged to attend. Topics related to the eng
not a lecture: just chitchat about the project and misc before extension lecture 36
this was not a real lecture - it was just some miscellaneous chitchat before the extension lecture started. Rupert and Thurston recorded it as we were having some troubles with the recording software (wirecast) and wanted to do a test session to try out a new setup they were hoping would be better. mainly i was chatting about keeping secrets from Dracula in the project for those interested, then some random things before the extension lecture started.
HST.950J Engineering Biomedical Information: From Bioinformatics to Biosurveillance (MIT)
This course provides an interdisciplinary introduction to the technological advances in biomedical informatics and their applications at the intersection of computer science and biomedical research.

Behavioral Science: When is it Normal to Forget?
Dr. Sonia Lupien is Associate Director, Clinical Research at the McGill Centre for Studies in Aging.
9.85 Infant and Early Childhood Cognition (MIT)
This course is an introduction to cognitive development focusing on children's understanding of objects, agents, and causality. Students develop a critical understanding of experimental design and how developmental research might address philosophical questions about the origins of knowledge, appearance and reality, and the problem of other minds.
McGill Goodman Cancer Research Center
A video produced to honor the work of legendary researcher, Dr. Phil Gold, and the advances made everyday in biomedical science at the McGill Goodman Cancer Research Center.
16.410 Principles of Autonomy and Decision Making (MIT)
This course surveys a variety of reasoning, optimization, and decision-making methodologies for creating highly autonomous systems and decision support aids. The focus is on principles, algorithms, and their applications, taken from the disciplines of artificial intelligence and operations research. Reasoning paradigms include logic and deduction, heuristic and constraint-based search, model-based reasoning, planning and execution, reasoning under uncertainty, and machine learning. Optimization
Green Chemistry is a relatively new field of research, with McGill playing a leading role worldwide. Find out how our researchers are developing processes and products to reduce or eliminate hazardous substances and manufacturing waste.
18.022 Calculus (MIT)
This is an undergraduate course on calculus of several variables. It covers all of the topics covered in Calculus II (18.02), but presents them in greater depth. These topics are vector algebra in 3-space, determinants, matrices, vector-valued functions of one variable, space motion, scalar functions of several variables, partial differentiation, gradient, optimization techniques, double integrals, line integrals in the plane, exact differentials, conservative fields, Green's theorem, triple int
15.668 People and Organizations (MIT)
This course examines the historical evolution and current human and organizational contexts in which scientists, engineers and other professionals work. It outlines today's major challenges facing the management profession and uses interactive exercises, simulations and problems to develop critical skills in negotiations, teamwork and leadership. It also introduces concepts and tools to analyze work and leadership experiences in optional undergraduate fieldwork projects.
17.955 Civil Society, Social Capital, and the State in Comparative Perspective (MIT)
In recent years both scholars and policymakers have expressed a remarkable amount of interest in the concepts of social capital and civil society. A growing body of research suggests that the social networks, community norms, and associational activities signified by these concepts can have important effects on social welfare, political stability, economic development, and governmental performance. This discussion based course examines the roles played by these networks, norms, and organizations

21L.000J Writing About Literature (MIT)
Writing About Literature aims: To increase students' pleasure and skill in reading literary texts and in writing and communicating about them. To introduce students to different literary forms (poetry, fiction, drama) and some tools of literary study (close reading, research, theoretical models). To allow students to get to know a single writer deeply. To encourage students to make independent decisions about their reading by exploring and reporting back on authors whose works they enjoy. The
