Self-directed learning in simulation-based discovery environments
SIMQUEST1 is an authoring system for designing and creating simulation-based learn-ing environments. The special character of SIMQUEST learning environments is that they include cognitive support for learners which means that they provide learners with support in the discovery process. In SIMQUEST learning environments we try to find the balance between direct guidance of the learning process and sufficient free-dom for learners to regulate the learning process themselves. In this article we de-
Introduction to Synchronous Digital Systems - Part II Fall 2007
Machine Structures - Fall 2007. The CS61 series is an introduction to computer science, with particular emphasis on software and on machines from a programmer's point of view. The first two courses considered programming at a high level of abstraction, introducing a range of programming paradigms and common techniques. This course, the last in the series, concentrates on machines and how they carry out the programs you write. The main topics of CS61C involve the low-level system software and th
Cyberinfrastructure for Education and Learning for the Future: a vision and research agenda
This report is the result of a series of workshops organized by the Computing Research Association and the International Society of the Learning Sciences with support from the National Science Foundation (Grant No. REC-0449247). The purpose of the workshop series was to explore where we are in the application of pervasive computing power to education, and where we need to be. In particular, the intent was to develop a map of where NSF can strategically place its resources in creating the learni
A comparison of the plant ecology of two fields
Students will apply random sampling techniques to do a plant population/community/ecosystem study to model how these things are interrelated.

This course is an introduction to the most fundamental concepts, principles, analytical methods and tools useful for making investment and finance decisions regarding commercial real estate assets. As the first of a two-course seque
A list of books about chromatography and capillary electrophoresis compiled by the Journal of Chemical Education. Includes applications, troubleshooting, mass spec, and theoretical treatments.
Chrom. and Electrophoresis experiments with PDFs
A site with PDF links to several slab gel electrophoresis, HPLC, and GC experiments intended for high school or college audiences. This site may provide a useful starting point for faculty seeking to implement new laboratory experiments based on these techniques. A login (email address) is required, but once logged in, follow the "Free Resources" link to see many instrumental and analytical experiments that have been submitted to the site.
Lecture notes for 1st semester are on titrations, gravimetry, kinetics and electrochemistry (redox). Potentiometry, coulometry, voltammetry, spectroscopic and separation methods are presented during 2nd semester, illustrated with QuickTime animations.

Introduction to concepts important in cardiovascular imaging of normal anatomy, including angiographic techniques and cross-sectional methods.
An examination of four macroeconomic policy situations
All Kinds of People - Myself
Four activities that encourage children to explore and experiment with most of the materials and techniques recommended in the revised curriculum.
Technology Enhanced Learning in Mathematics: the cross-experimentation approach adopted by the TELMA
This contribution deals with the work of TELMA, a European Research Team of the Kaleidoscope Network of Excellence. In particular the "cross-experimentation" project is presented. Such project was developed by TELMA to understand the role played by theoretical frameworks in setting up experiments using Interactive Learning Environments (ILE) for mathematics. The paper focuses on the methodological dimension of this project.
Come On Over Rover
Have you ever wondered why it takes such a long period of time for NASA to build space exploration equipment? What is involved in manufacturing and building a rover for the Red Planet? During this lesson, students will discover the journey that a Mars rover embarks upon after being designed by engineers and before being prepared for launch. Students will investigate the fabrication techniques, tolerance concepts, assembly and field-testing associated with a Mars exploratory rover.
Is That Legal? A Case of Acid Rain
The goal of this activity is to understand how techniques of persuasion (including background, supporting evidence, storytelling and the call to action) are used to develop an argument for or against a topic. Students develop an environmental case study for presentation and understand how a case study is used as an analysis tool.
Students learn basic marketing concepts and use professional marketing techniques to compose an advertisement for a hybrid vehicle. In the process, they learn the principles of comparative analysis.
Keeping the Air Clean
This item presents information about alternative sources of energy, using industrial control techniques, and the role of tress and oceans in keeping the air clean. Includes great graphics.
Digital Storytelling in the Classroom and Beyond
This workshop explores how contemporary technology tools empower students and teachers to engage in highly creative and reflective tasks to organize and present information, and express emotions, ideas and knowledge through multimedia creations known as digital stories. Digital storytelling is increasingly becoming popular in schools all over the world as an engaging technology-based learning strategy. In this workshop, the participants will be exposed to powerful user-friendly and cost-free tec
Overview of Computational Nanoscience
This course will provide students with the fundamentals of computational problem-solving techniques that are used to understand and predict properties of nanoscale systems. Emphasis will be placed on how to use simulations effectively, intelligently, and cohesively to predict properties that occur at the nanoscale for real systems. The course is designed to present a broad overview of computational nanoscience and is therefore suitable for both experimental and theoretical researchers. While som
