Computer Science 273B: Kernel-Based Learning
This course introduces the students to one of the most influential developments in modern machine learning, namely kernel methods. The course will be focused on familiarizing the student with a number of practical kernel-based algorithms (such as “support vector machines”, “kernel Fisher Discrimination”, “kernel principal components analysis” and “Gaussian processes”) and a number of techniques to construct kernels (such as ANOVA kernels, string kernels, graph kernels, diffusio

Online Library of Scientific Models - A New Way to Teach, Learn, and Share Learning Experience
While scientific models are usually communicated in paper format, the need to reprogram every model by every user results in a huge loss of efforts, time and money, hence lengthening the educational and research developing cycle and loosing the learning experience and expertise gained by every user. We demonstrate a new portal www.imodelit.com that hosts a library of scientific models for electrical engineers in the form of java applets. They are all conformal, informative, with strong input and

Knowledge Management: As a Mechanism for Large-Scale Technological and Organizational Change Managem
Organizational and Technological changes in Israeli universities are taking place without a clear and well-planned model for managing those changes. Universities must adapt to daunting social and educational challenges, in which technology is playing a bigger role than ever before. The model we propose is implementing knowledge management strategies for achieving change management at universities in order to facilitate university's transformation. By doing that, we are establishing a well planne

Implementing Blended Learning for 1000 Mechanical Engineering Students
The module Techniques of Programming of the RWTH Aachen University is one of five case studies within the EU funded project Blend-XL – Finding a Balance in Blended Learning with eXtra Large Students Groups. During the project the module changed from a face-to-face module into a blended learning one. Therefore a blended learning concept has been developed which includes a special virtual learning environment. With the help of the blended learning concept the main problem areas of this module, th

Embedding email in primary schools: developing a tool for collective reflection
Reflection is an important aspect of learning in groups. In collective moments of reflection, learners can share and compare their ideas with others, and by doing so can reach an articulated and personal understanding of a learning task and domain. In the research presented here, e-mail is examined as a means for reflection in the context of group learning. In two design experiments, an e-mail tool is developed that seeks to (1) support collective reflection, and (2) overcome practical problems

Not So Neutral Views
Students are introduced to acids and bases, and the environmental problem of acid rain. They explore ways to use indicators to distinguish between acids and bases. Students also conduct a simple experiment to model and discuss the harmful effects of acid rain on our living and non-living environment, as well as how engineers address acid rain. In an associated literacy activity, students learn how persuasive techniques are used to develop an argument, and create an environmental case study.

Supporting Teachers Intervention in Collaborative Knowledge Building
In the context of distributed collaborative learning, the teacher's role is different from traditional teacher-centered environments, they are coordinators/facilitators, guides, and co-learners. They monitor the collaboration activities within a group, detect problems and intervene in the collaboration to give advice and learn alongside students at the same time. We have designed an Assistant to support teachers intervention in collaborative knowledge building. The Assistant monitors the collabo
