Standard-compliant Scenario Building with Theoretical Justification in a Theory-aware Authoring Tool
Nowadays standard technologies play important roles in enhancing sharability, reusability and interoperability of learning contents. However, there is a lack of pedagogical justification of the contents implemented with the standards. This paper discusses the standard-compliance of our ontology-based modeling framework and how the framework gives theoretical justification to standard-compliant learning/instructional scenarios in a theory-aware authoring tool.,Poster in 13th International Confere
Modélisation et perception de l'activité dans l'environnement Symba
Nous présentons dans cet article les travaux de recherche liés à la conception de Symba, un environnement support d'activités collectives en contexte d'apprentissage (ACCA) dont l'objectif est de faire travailler les étudiants sur l'organisation de leur activité. A travers la conception de Symba nous abordons les problématiques du support à la modélisation de l'activité collective par les apprenants, de la perception de l'activité et de la malléabilité de l'environnement.,Proceeding
Small company attitude towards ICT based solutions: some key-elements to improve it
In this paper we illustrate some research results concerning the attitude of small companies towards ICT based solutions (specifically Distance Communication, Training and Consultancy); in addition, we introduce some key-elements to overtake the obstacles to introducing ICT in small companies for new business processes; amongst others, we highlight the need for training about technological innovation as well as about organizational and cultural changes that must occur within a company. The conce
A First Step Mapping IMS Learning Design and Moodle
Mapping the specification IMS Learning Design and the Course Management System Moodle is a logical step forward on interoperability between eLearning systems and specifications in order to increase the best acceptance of the specifications into the widespread world of the eLearning systems and to ensure the standardization of the outputs from the systems to be used in others. IMS Learning Design and Moodle look for a common understanding focused on the integration of information packages modelle
Vers une approche déclarative pour les logiciels de dessins géométriques
Cet article est consacré à la conception d'un environnement d'apprentissage de la géométrie orienté vers la manipulation directe de figures géométriques. À travers deux exemples d'activités, proposées en classe, on distingue les notions de construction géométriques, de spécification, et de manipulation directe. Dans le cadre ainsi défini, nous présentons notre approche. Elle consiste à intégrer des mécanismes et la méthodologie de l'intelligence artificielle dans un logic
Interdisciplinary approach for the design of a learning environment
This paper presents our interdisciplinary approach for the design of a technology-based learning environment for orthopaedic surgery. We present how the didactical analysis of teaching and learning in workplace gives a framework to build the computational representation of knowledge. This analysis is shown within the context of the apprenticeship of concepts of anatomy and orthopaedic surgery.
EMLs : case study in distance learning education
After a short characterization of what an educational modeling language should be, we will deal with the respective interest of two EML proposals : one proposed by OUNL (OUNL/EML and IMS/LD which is derived from it) and one proposed by UNED (PALO). We will then identify reasons that lead us to choose OUNL/EML for experimentation in distance learning education in order to model our scenario. Finally we will present some limitations or extensions we have identified.
Student's modelling with a lattice of conceptions in the domain of linear equations and inequations
We present a student's modelling process in algebra which consists of two phases. The first phase is a local diagnosis where a student's transformation of an expression A into an expression B is diagnosed with a sequence of rewriting rules. A library of correct and incorrect rules has been built for that purpose. The second phase uses a lattice of conceptions built for modelling students more globally. Conceptions are attributed to students according to a mechanism using the local diagnoses as i

A talk by Dipesh Chakrabarty, Lawrence A. Kimpton Distinguished Service Professor of History, South Asian Languages and Civilizations and the College. Part of the Nicholson Center for British Studies 2007-2008 Lecture Series, "Making the Secular: Lectures in the Formation of Knowledge".Author(s):
The essence of industrial design engineering (IDE) is designing and improving products which are used daily and intensively, at home or at work. The faculty is committed to study, innovate and improve the development of durable products and their services for people, on the basis of the balanced interests of users, industry, society and the environment. The faculty pursues this mission through a multidisciplinary approach that integrates human aspects - i.e. ergonomics, market, organisation and

Exploring Amistad: Race and the Boundaries of Freedom in Antebellum Maritime America
Exploring Amistad examines the Amistad revolt, a shipboard uprising of slaves off the coast of Cuba. It uses timelines, a library of historical documents, a discovery section and bibliography to teach about this watershed historical event, which set off a legal, political, and popular debate over the slave trade, slavery, race, Africa, and ultimately America itself.
This site looks at American political parties of the past, presidential inaugurations, images of presidents and first ladies, our first uniform election day, political cartoons by Herbert Block (Herblock) and Pat Oliphant, the 1877 electoral commission created by Congress to resolve the disputed presidential election of 1876, the 19th and 24th amendments (ending the poll tax and giving women the right to vote), and the Nixon-Kennedy debates.

Geometry of nonlinear connections
We show that locally diffeomorphic exponential maps can be defined for any second-order differential equation, and give a (possibly nonlinear) covariant derivative for any (possibly nonlinear) connection. We introduce vertically homogeneous connections as the natural correspondents of homogeneous second-order differential equations. We provide significant support for the prospect of studying nonlinear connections via certain, closely associated secondorder differential equations. One of the mos
