Exploring Semantic Description and Matching Technologies for Enhancing the Automatic Composition of
In the implementation of e-learning frameworks, a problem still unsolved is how to use and integrate low-level learning services to compose more complex high-level services or tools that make sense to both tutors and learners. In that sense semantic description of Grid learning Services appears like a powerful tool to be used for discovering and matching learning services depending of a set of parameters inside the learning framework. These parameters must represent significant functional charac

A Simulated Student Can Improve Collaborative Learning
This paper describes a Simulated Student architecture designed to detect and avoid three situations that decrease the benefits of learning in collaboration. These are off-topic conversations, students with passive behaviour and problems related to students’ learning. In order to check the efficiency of the model in a real case a Simulated Student, which has the features described in the model, was added to a collaborative, synchronous system for learning programming. This paper describes the ex

Empirical Research Methods
Regression analysis is an enormously popular and powerful tool, used ubiquitously in the social and behavioral sciences. Most courses on the subject immediately dive into the mathematical aspects of the subject and illustrate the technique on problems that are already highly structured. As a result, most students come away with little idea of the wide range of problems to which regression analysis can be applied and how to represent those problems in a way that cleverly utilizes readily availabl

Future Flights!
This lesson is an exciting conclusion to the airplanes unit that encourages students to think creatively. After a review of the concepts learned, students will design their own flying machine based on their knowledge of the forces involved in flight, the properties of available materials, and the ways in which their flying machine could benefit society. Students will also learn how the brainstorming process helps in creative thinking and inventing and that scientists and engineers use this techn

The end and the beginning:a model for analyzing visual/verbal news broadcasts of protest coverage
This project brings together two areas of prior research: framing and visual rhetoric. Framing as it relates to news coverage of protests constitutes the core theoretical foundation. In using prior research by McLeod, Gitlin, and Lee, we see how news coverage can potentially bias an audience against protestors. However, this research focuses extensively on newspapers or transcripts of televised news. Consequently, by combining visual theories like semiotics, gestalt, and film theory into a visua

Protective bollard design for high speed impact energy absorption
As is passenger safety of paramount importance to the manufacturer of passenger vehicles, so is the security of the nation to its government. Recent developments in the usage of heavy vehicles by militant outfits to carry out attack has become the main concern of many governments around the world, hence the existence of some kind of barrier to stop heavy vehicles from entering restricted areas was thought of. This barrier must be able to provide both visibility and security without being much ex

Parametric study of low velocity impact analysis on composite tubes
As explicit finite element codes improve and advanced material models become available, such tools find more widespread application in many industries. This thesis reports the research study of the low velocity impact simulation on carbon reinforced polymer epoxy composite tube using nonlinear explicit finite element software LS-Dyna. Validation of the experimental results is done with the proposed finite element model in LS-Dyna. A finite element model is implemented on quadratic stress based g
