Modelaci?n de Actividades [Modeling of Activities]
Despite increasing interest in the functionality and humanization of architecture, scarcely the occupation of buildings are studied and it lacks methods to represent activities in the spaces. By this reason, it proposes a system such integrates simulation of processes and virtual modeling software, to program the behavior of tri-dimensional characters based on the probabilistic evolution of events, testing this approach in the study of emergency services of hospitals. It describes the procedure
Qualitative contribution of a vr-system to architectural design: Why we failed?
The paper exposes the development of a Virtual-Reality system for modeling timber structures, and evaluations with students about its contribution to the architectural project.
Generative CAD Systems
In the new millennium, Computer Aided Design has emerged as the most potent technological innovation in design. As BIM promises to integrate design tasks vertically and horizontally through graceful data exchange, new frontiers appear to researchers and practitioners as potential watershed events of the next decade. Generative approaches, a venerable engagement of computational design, is emerging as one of these. The proceedings of the Generative CAD Symposium held at Carnegie Mellon University
This topic will assist you in developing online communication and Internet learning skills. It is based on the principles of networked learning where individuals establish an online identity and formulate relationships with other people and information to communicate and develop knowledge.

1.051 Structural Engineering Design (MIT)
This course aims at providing students with a solid background on the principles of structural engineering design. Students will be exposed to the theories and concepts of both concrete and steel design and analysis both at the element and system levels. Hands-on design experience and skills will be gained and learned through problem sets and a comprehensive design project. An understanding of real-world open-ended design issues will be developed. Besides regular lectures, weekly recitations and
Understanding contemporary society
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. This module introduces students to a range of approaches in social analysis. Through introductions to key concepts, theorists and research studies in the disciplines of sociology, cultural studies and social policy, students will be equipped with the skills necessary for more advanced study of contemporary society. Two routes to reading this module's contents are offered. Those who prefer to read on screen can na
The sounds of German
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught in Autumn Semester 2009. This module investigates the sounds of German and how they can be described accurately (“phonetics and phonology”). Students will learn to transcribe German using the notation of the International Phonetic Association, and we will look in particular at aspects of German pronunciation that are hard to master because they are different to English or similar to French. We will a
Service encounters : booking a holiday
In this on-line lesson provided by 'CELE' international students can improve their social listening skills. This lesson is part of a module developing students' listening skills in academic, social and everyday situations. This lesson helps students understand how humour is used in conversation and how speakers cooperate and share knowledge in conversation. Students can improve their listening skills through tasks focusing on understanding the main points, listening for detail, and practisi
Student-authored multimedia tutorials that cover a variety of study skills topics (e.g., time management, essay writing, note-taking, textbook reading)
Pathway 2 Information : citing references
The citing and referencing module is part of a wider online tutorial designed to teach a range of information skills to undergraduate students. The module aims to provide an introductory guide to why referencing and citing is important and how to reference particular types of material according to different referencing styles. This skill is required by students throughout their degree courses and backs up more traditional face-to-face teaching in this area. The module uses an interactive approa
Number for Nurses: Division
The Number for Nurses Computer Assisted Learning Package begins with a basic principles section which is followed by application to nursing practice. The basic principles section deals with addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, S.I. units and scales and gauges. In each area a variety of methods are used to enable the student to understand these principles, through interactive tutorials and consolidate learning through exercises. The aim of the division section is to help the student
