Can simulations in VE support architects in solving complex design problems?
Building design is facing development of industrialization of the production on the one hand and more complex 'One of a Kind' products on the other. This will be for rebuilding of a large stock of existing buildings and what can be left to new production. In both cases the results of the design process have to be solid to guarantee a successful product. In both cases an integrated and careful design process is absolutely crucial. The demands on the built environment make the systems of buildings
The World is Our Classroom
At the University of Notre Dame, students have the opportunity to learn about poverty and injustice first-hand through local, national, and international community-based learning and research opportunities offered by the Center for Social Concerns. This video provides a brief glimpse into the diverse experiences and insights students gain when they make the world their classroom. http://socialconcerns.nd.edu/

Electronics - Tutorial
An encyclopedic collection of descriptions of electronics circuitry and principles to introduce or reacquaint readers with a wide variety of concepts. The site is very well organized to access the information needed. In addition to passive and active components, electricity and magnetism are also described.
DNA Amplification for Forensic Analysts
This web site describes the ampification polymerase chain reaction (PCR)process typically employed for the forensic analysis of DNA. Emphasis is placed on the selection of core short tandem repeat(STR)and Y-STR loci for conducting PCR. The concept of multiplexing is reviewed.The site is designed as an on-line short course with excellent graphic support. The user must register and secure a readily obtainable password prior to entering the site
Publications of the Physical Sciences Center: The Higher Education Academy
This site provides extensive embedded content and links on educational issues and topics in the teaching and learning of chemistry and physics. There is a wealth of pertinent content and links in this website. For example, under \"Primers\" you can download material on topics such as PBL, a math toolkit and how to integrate software into courses. In the \"Factors Influencing Curricular Development in Chemistry, A Physical Sciences Practice Guide (2006)\" is an excellent primer on how to teach, e
National Service Learning Clearinghouse
This website provides a solid introduction to service learning which includes links to a number of chemistry service learning projects that is likely to be useful to those instructors interested in learning about this teaching method.
Words and Expressions to Talk about Technology
This video is about Technology and its effect on our lives. The presentation starts with some facts about how technology has changed in the recent years. There is a definition of TECHNOLOGY and several words related to it are listed. There is also some reference to the negative side of using technology.
3.3 By genre A second categorisation which operates on the ‘type’ of text involved is genre. Most writing on genre looks either at literature or film, yet it can equally be used for other media. In the following reading, Steve Neale places much importance on what he calls ‘intertextual relay’, where links between a number of texts are made explicit, for example by the marketing of cultural products. In this way the expectations of viewers and readers are channelled; they ca

Immunomodulation and Immunosuppression by HHV-6
NASA CONNECT PSA - The Astronaut's Helper
In NASA CONNECT PSA: The Astronaut's Helper, students will be introduced to the Personal Satellite Assistant (PSA), a small, spherical robot that assists astronauts with their chores on space-based vehicles. Students will learn about different types of robots and the mechanical systems on the PSA that must work together for the PSA to function. In the web activity, students interact with a simulation of the PSA and learn how forces affect motion in a low-friction, microgravity environment. Stude
