This course consists of web contents that will enable students to understand the elementary course on college mathematics using HTML and flash in a pleasant and easy fashion.
Solid State Physics II
As the second part of a two-semester-class, students will study the characteristics of semiconductors, metals, superconductors and magnetic substances among various solid forms.
Based on electro-and magneto ststics which covered in the previous class electromagnetism 1, the course introduces basic and intermediate topics which include Maxwell equations, electromagnetic wave theory, electrohynamics and special theory of relativity.Course Objectives. Electromagnetism is one of the fundamental physics theories, which is required to understand many modern science/engineering achievements as well as natural phenomena. The main purpose is to learn and understand major concept
Lecture 27 - 11/24/2010
Editing files and Emacs
This emacs lecture is given as part of the course G51UST, Unix Software Tools. The course gives an introduction to the Unix operating system. It teaches students how to use the Command Line Interface that is part of Unix and also teaches them how to write shell, sed and awk. In doing so the course covers the use of editors such as Emacs and vi with which the students can write their scripts. It is presented in 3 formats: * Screencast (video of the lecturer and presentation slides) * Au

Interactive Collaborative Books
Books are one of the most important tools to convey knowledge, they survived to be a convenient and portable source of information. On the other side, Electronic books (e-books) are playing a big role in attracting a huge number of readers, but still paper books are preferable by many people due to some drawbacks in e-books. Yet, Interactive books combines all positive features in ordinary books as well as e-books, the author is introducing a new Interactive Collaborative book that might change
Collaborative Multi-professional Narrative Based e-learning. An application to teaching Medical Stat
The present paper describes e-CNA (e-Collaborative Narrative Analysis), a web based multi-agent environment where different agents contribute to the exploration and social co-construction of the meanings of a set of narratives. The paper also describes an action-research e-learning experiment aimed to involve the students of different courses and a multi-disciplinary team of health professionals in a blended online educational project on qualitative and quantitative research methodologies in hea
Using the Internet to Improve University Education: Problem-oriented Web-based Learning with MUNICS
A principled approach to the design of problem-oriented, web-based learning at the university level is presented. The principles include providing authentic contexts with multimedia, supporting collaborative knowledge construction, making thinking visible with dynamic visualisation, quick access to content resources via ICT, and flexible support by tele-tutoring. These principles are used in the MUNICS learning environment, which is designed to help students of computer science to apply their co
Collaborative distributed environments for learning design tasks by means of modelling and simulatio
The Simulation discipline has to face new challenges such as the incorporation of Collaborative Technologies for professional use as well as for teaching purposes. This integration permits the creation of new kinds of support for collaborative learning processes. In this paper, we explore the potential of this synergy with DomoSim-TPC, a synchronous distributed collaborative environment for the teaching and learning of Domotics. The system supports an active, simulation-based and problem-based a
APLUSIX, A learning environment for algebra, actual use and benefits
After a presentation of the APLUSIX system, a learning environment for formal algebra, we describe the use of this system in a French class of grade 10, in particular a sequence devoted to factorisations and equations, and an analysis of the students' work during this sequence. This study exhibits the influence of the tools provided by the software on the construction of competences in algebra. We also report the opinion of a teacher who used the APLUSIX system during one year with this class.
Literature Review in Learning with Tangible Technologies
When we think of digital technologies in schools, we tend to think of computers, keyboards, sometimes laptops, and more recently whiteboards and data projectors. These tools are becoming part of the familiar educational landscape. Outside the walls of the classroom, however, there are significant changes in how we think about digital technologies - or, to be more precise, how we don’t think about them, as they disappear into our clothes, our fridges, our cars and our city streets. This disappe
Using domain-specific and generic knowledge to support discovery learning about geometrical optics i
Students encounter many obstacles during scientific discovery learning with computer-based simulations. It is hypothesized that an effective type of support, that does not interfere with the scientific discovery learning process, should be delivered on a ‘just-in-time’ base. This paper explores the effect of facilitating access to knowledge and skills through just-in-time information. An experiment was conducted in which a group of students who worked with a computer simulation on geometrica
ToonTalk in Kindergartens: Field Notes
The emergence of a fully graphical, animated programming language, such as ToonTalk, prompted the question: is computer programming a viable educational activity with kindergarten-aged children? Since May 2000, we have been conducting ToonTalk sessions with 3- to 5-year old children, trying to determine what approaches are more successful, what activities are viable, what issues may arise in the process. From November 2001 to February 2002, the sessions took place regularly in a normal kindergar
Current and future usages of E-learning metadata and ontologies.
The purpose of this report is to provide an overview on current and future usages of annotations, metadata and ontologies in the e-learning projects of the JEIRP partners. The first section of this article defines a methodology based on user roles which allows for a structured presentation of the usages. The methodology is used for the description of several current usage scenarios in Section 2. Additionally, this methodology allows identifying open research questions. These are described in det
Analyzing Ligand-Protein Binding
This website consists of a text file that describes the analysis of radioligand binding experiments in a step-wise, easy to follow sequence. Although this site will be most useful to students trying to understand radioligand binding, the discussion is applicable to other types of ligand-protein binding experiments. The site also discusses the limitations of Scatchard plots for data analysis and the importance of nonlinear fitting of binding data.
