Extended architecture of knowledge management system with Web 2.0 technologies
Knowledge management systems (KMS) become increasingly important in periods of crises and economic slowdown, as many organizations are forced to lay off people, to reduce research and ICT budgets, to restructure departments and to optimize their costs. Subsequently, organizational knowledge assets, and mainly the existing tacit knowledge are threatened. This raises the importance of technologies that could assist organizational efforts to capture the existing knowledge and to mobilize it in orde
The Viking Age: England and Francia
Scandinavians, popularly known as Vikings, began to explore and settle in Europe from the ninth century. Contemporary Christian writers voiced their dismay at what they saw as the sudden eruption of these savage pagans into their area. Commentators since, down to the 20th century have largely echoed these writers' views, sometimes portraying the Scandinavians as mindless thugs led by psychopaths. In a period when savagery in warfare was commonplace, the Vikings have been placed by some in a spec
Economics of Law: module outline
A module outline for a course on the Economics of Law delivered by Professor Antony Dnes at the Central European University. It is typical of a modern law and economics syllabus. The course provides an overview of standard models of the economic analysis of law, based on common-law and civil-law countries: studying property rights, contracts, torts, crime, legal costs regimes, and litigation issues from an economic perspective.
Sustainable Communities: Research in Action (HTML navigation)
This core module will enable you to develop a range of key geographical and transferable skills relating to project research and management. You will begin to understand what a professional geographer does through a consultancy based project which will involve interacting with a client (the University) to create real and useful research. This will help instil a sense of professionalism in your work and create high quality outputs. You will also develop an understanding of how businesses and com
Human Microbiota in Health
A tutorial providing information on the human commensal bacteria and the infections they cause. A series of questions based on the culture and Gram stain of clinical samples guides the reader into the correct identification of the causative organism of infection. Full explanations of the answers are provided. This is a Questionmark Perception file. The QTIXML file needs to be opened in QP Authoring Manager, converted to an assessment and exported into your own VLE.
Learning Production Management with
The Clock Manufacturing Game
Purpose: Design a business game to provide hands-on training on processes, related to production management Methodology: A stepwise approach is taken. First learning goals, existing approaches and constraints are considered. As a next step a system of conceptual models is developed and finally the model is formalized to the level of detail, necessary for real implementation Findings: The methodology is applied for goals of common interest among teachers in industrial management. Constraints and
1 Global corporate citizenship? Rarely have businesses found such a complex and challenging set of economic pressures, political uncertainties and societal expectations. Regardless of their industry sector, country of origin, or corporate ownership structure, they are under growing pressure to demonstrate outstanding performance not only in terms of competitiveness and market growth, but also in their corporate governance and their corporate citizenshi HST.410J Projects in Microscale Engineering for the Life Sciences (MIT) How to Multiply and Divide Fractions Fractions Music Video Math Word Problems Sample Clip
This course is a project-based introduction to manipulating and characterizing cells and biological molecules using microfabricated tools. It is designed for first year undergraduate students. In the first half of the term, students perform laboratory exercises designed to introduce (1) the design, manufacture, and use of microfluidic channels, (2) techniques for sorting and manipulating cells and biomolecules, and (3) making quantitative measurements using optical detection and fluorescent labe
This video shows how to multiply and divide fractions by multiplying the numerators and denominators — even if the fractions have unlike denominators. Run time 01:49.
This brief video clip uses computer animation and music to teach about basic fractions. The lyrics are provided on the screen and examples of simple fractions are provided. (4 out of 7 fish are red - or 4/7). Ru time 01:26.
This video helps students boost math skills and score high on tests. Students learn how to read problems carefully, identify relevant information, use pictures and diagrams, and look for patterns
