Choosing Supplies for Homeschooling
This video shows how to pick out simple homeschooling supplies for each student, which can be used for a variety of subjects. A homeschool explains how to choosing supplies for homeschooling depends on the child's areas of interest, but basic supplies include writing utensils, different types of paper, textbooks and other crafts.
Liverworts, Mosses, and Ferns
This video gives a quick overview of some different types of spore-bearing plants. Dr. Matt von Konrat explains the reproduction of liverworts, mosses, and ferns to a high school group of students. Audio is poor but information is good. Run time 07:50
Plant Reproduction: The Pine Tree
Pine trees actually produce two types of pinecones. This video addresses both the male cone and the female cone as well as their parts. Using computer generated pictures, the narrator explains the reproductive process for a pine tree. The narrator also addresses the special adaptations of the pine needle. Run time 02:41.
Data Quality: Missing Data
This module describes how missing data can be managed while maintaining data quality. It explains how to plan for missing data; defines different types of "missingness;" outlines the benefits of documenting missing data and illustrates how to document missing data; and describes procedures to minimize missing data. Upon completion of this module, students will be able to explain why data managers should strive to minimize missing data and develop a plan to record or code why data are missing.

ESD.932 Technology Policy Organizations (MIT)
Technology Policy Organizations and its sequel, ESD.933, Technology Policy Negotiations and Dispute Resolution, form a sequence on Organizational Processes in Technology Policy. This course features an overall framework for understanding the increasingly networked, flat, flexible and diverse nature of organizations, as well as a close look at the many relevant types of organizations, including regulatory, entrepreneurial, multi-national, and non-governmental non-profit. Key organizational proces
13 - Banking: Successes and Failures
Banks, which were first created in primitive form by goldsmiths hundreds of years ago, have evolved into central economic institutions that manage the allocation of resources, channel information about productive activities, and offer the public convenient investment vehicles. Although there are several types of banking institutions, including credit unions and Saving and Loan Associations, commercial banks are the largest and most important in the banking system. Banks are designed to address t
Virtual laboratories in Molecular and Cell Biology - Intracellular signalling
A virtual laboratory which allows users to analyse intracellular signalling pathways. The programme allows the student to stimulate cells for different periods of time and analyse phosphorylation/activation of kinases in the signalling pathways, using SDS-PAGE and immunoblotting. Use of different cell types (dominant-negative mutants) and pull-down assays allows them to derive the hierarchy in the signalling pathways. The programme first introduces the theory behind the techniques. It then takes
Use networked services effectively to provide access to information
By developing their awareness of, and effectively using a range of, networked services practitioners enhance their responses to client requests for information. It contains activities and resources to facilitate self-paced learning. Topics include: types of databases, responding to client requests for help, the internet, bibliographic databases, kinetica, new developments and putting it all together.
Tool for Stereographic Projection
This tools allows you to draw stereographic projections for different crystal types using different poles for the projection axis. It also allows you to draw circles of a specified angle around either individual poles or all poles with a spacing larger than a selected value.
Introduction to Freshwater Invertebrate & Plant Sampling
Short video providing a summary of why freshwater invertebrates and plant abundances are studied and the broad types of methods used. Aimed at students without previous field experience and linked to other more detailed methods videos up loaded to Jorum Open, which can be found using keywords Freshwater Ecology or Ecology Field Techniques.
TALAT Lecture 1402: Aluminium Matrix Composite Materials
This lecture provides understanding of the state-of-the-art of aluminium matrix composite materials; it outlines the properties of aluminium matrix composite materials as a basis for materials selection; it explains the limits of useful applications; it demonstrates the various types of aluminium matrix composites. Knowledge in metallurgy, materials science, materials engineering is assumed.
Quizzes in Director using Lingo
This set of video tutorials demonstrates how to create quizzes in Director and Lingo. The types of quiz include 'drag and drop' and answering questions using Text Input areas. These training videos assume the user has previous experience working with Director. This is a link to a website where the videos can be viewed from an index. The videos are also available to download from JorumOpen.
Mini project : credit the edit : document transcript
This is Mini Project documentation about creating and editing audio and video content. It is part of the 2009/10 BSc ( Hons ) in Multimedia Technology (course number 2ELE0075) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes. It includes a project introduction and specification, day 1 and 2 project briefs and a creative brief. The objectives of this module are to demonstrate abilities to: o To plan, generate, s
Uniform convergence and pointwise convergence
The aim of this material is to introduce the student to two notions of convergence for sequences of real-valued functions. The notion of pointwise convergence is relatively straightforward, but the notion of uniform convergence is more subtle. Uniform convergence is explained in terms of closed function balls and the new notion of sets absorbing sequences. The differences between the two types of convergence are illustrated with several examples. Some standard facts are also discussed: a uniform
Amusing introduction to beryllium
This introduction to the element beryllium (atomic number 4) covers its main uses and properties. It is very toxic, invisible to x-rays, expensive, and used in some high-tech equipment. Those working with beryllium are advised not to lick their fingers. Combines amusing demonstrations with talking to the camera by a wild-haired chemistry professor. Part of a series called Author(s):
