What Happened to Collaborative Design?
In this paper we present the results of a comprehensive literature survey on the development of collaborative design. We reviewed 324 papers on collaborative design, taken from various sources (conferences, journals, and PhD-theses). We grouped the papers based on common themes, and in that way derived a classification of themes through the last 25 years (1983-2008). Each category is described, its development, and key publications are identified.
Future Scenario for a Collaborative Design Session
A collaborative design project consists of a team of design partners who are engaged during the period of the project in a particular design task. The group forms a short-lived community with the goal to create a design. The environment in which this is done today, consists of the participants office spaces, completed with equipment such as drawing tables, coffee machines, fax machines, CAD stations, etc. None of these elements reflect the existence of the (temporary) community that a design par
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.

One mile long and 600 feet high, the Three Gorges Dam on the Yangtze River is a project of epic proportions — and controversy. The dam, completed in 2008, created a vast reservoir extending 370 miles, about the distance from Los Angeles to San Francisco. It brings drinking water to northern China and generates as much electricity as 18 coal-fired power plants. But it has also displaced some two million people and caused widespread flooding, destroying rural villages and cultural treasures.
This course in Land Restoration and Afforestation provides an introduction and overview of the scientific concepts underlying deforested lands and their renewal. The course contains questions for peer-directed learning and is supplemented with bibliographies and multimedia resources . All information within this course is based upon free and fully public sources.
Aimed at healthcare practitioners, this learning object describes why hand hygiene is so important in a healthcare setting, then uses video clips to demonstrate correct, and incorrect, hand washing techniques.
How a microworld is used by students is crucially influenced by the teacher, who has the responsibility of organising the classroom setting in which learning takes place. For this reason this paper focuses on the teacher as a manager of the learning situation, in relation to the students’ construction of meaning. A model of teaching which takes into account interactions between teacher, students and computer is outlined. Although the focus of this paper will be on the teacher, the teacher w
Our research team has developed and experimented software for the learning of algebra, named Aplusix, with the idea of being usable and useful for all the classes having access to computers, and of helping teachers to teach the curriculum. In this paper, we list 19 principles that we consider relevant to this goal and we briefly describe the Aplusix system. This system is distributed in France since early 2005 and will be distributed in many countries from 2006. It has proven to be efficient (st
The Vitamin Village is a web-based eLearning package developed between 2001 and 2008 to incorporate vitamins A, C, D, E and K, as well as a basic introduction to antioxidants. It is mainly used in first year teaching of vitamins, but also in the 2nd and 3rd years of the 3 year BSc (Hons) Nutrition and 4 year MNutr Nutrition degrees taught within the School of Biosciences. The creation and development involved staff within Nutritional Sciences (Drs John Brameld, Zoe Daniel & Tim Parr and Profe
This task is about controlling budgets - making sure activities are proceeding according to plan, and taking corrective action when they don't. This learning pack introduces you to monitoring and controlling finance and contains information and activities covering budget responsibilities; cost controls; record keeping; and monitoring financial performance.
Stroke is the third largest cause of death in the UK after heart disease and cancer. It is also the single leading cause of severe disability in the UK. Classification of stroke is crucial in planning treatment and is a good indication of prognosis This Learning Object helps individuals understand how to make the diagnosis of stroke using the Oxford Stroke classification. It is suitable for any health care professionals involved in the management of stroke but especially doctors and medical stu

As well as being an expert in special needs in Education, Dr Edward Sellman is also a recognised artist and in this video he takes you round his latest exhibition and reveals all about meeting and painting the famous author. 2009 Suitable for Undergraduate Study and Community Education Dr Edward Sellman, Lecturer, School of Education Dr Edward Sellman is a member of the Centre for Research in Schools and Co
This resource covers the process of supporting turf work under supervision. It requires the ability to prepare materials, tools and equipment for turf work, undertake turf work, handle materials and equipment, and clean up on completion of work. Supporting turf work requires knowledge of safe work practices, mowing patterns and heights, turf machinery and equipment, and maintenance practices. It contains activities and resources to facilitate self-paced learning.
In June 2009 the Operator Algebras and Applications International Summer School was held in Lisbon. Dr Joel Feinstein taught one of the four courses available on Regularity conditions for Banach function algebras. He delivered four 90 minute lectures on and this learning object contains the slides, handouts, annotated slides and audio podcasts from each session. Banach function algebras are complete normed algebras of bounded, continuous, complex-valued functions defined on topological spaces.
