8.3 Issues and concerns about RFID
Are you a technophobe? Bluetooth, Ethernet WiFi – are they terms that mean nothing to you? This unit will gently guide you to an understanding of how devices 'talk' to each other and what technologies and processes are involved. You will also look at wired and wireless communication technologies, introducing you to some of the key methods involved.

Les vacances en France - Quiz
Students can test themselves on travel, tourism and holidays in France.
Fraction Practice Quiz and Answers
This is a practice quiz students can take either in class or out of class. Answers are provided as short videos that explain how to work each problem. Students can therefore work at their own rate on a quiz meant to help prepare them for a unit exam or in-class quiz.
Observations on Collaborative Design and Multimedia Usage in Virtual Design Studio
The virtual design studio (VDS) points to a new way of practicing and teaching architectural design. As a new phenomenon, little research has been done to evaluate design collaboration and multimedia usage in a distributed workplace like the virtual design studio. Our research provides empirical data on how students actually use multiple media during architectural collaborative design.
Functional Integration in CAD Systems
This paper examines the issue of integration in CAD systems and argues that for integration to be effective, it must address the functional aspects of a CAD system. It discusses the need for integrated systems and, within a structural engineering context, identifies several facets of integration that should be targeted. These include 2-D drafting and 3-D modelling, graphical and non-graphical design information, the CAD data structure and its user interface, as well as integration of the draftin
Land: State of the Earth
Large tracks of land in Africa and Chine simply blew away in 2006. When land is stripped bare or robbed of rain by climate change, it often turns to desert. Learn how once fertile land is destroyed by deforestation, lack of rain, and fire. Run time 06:21.
AlgTop18: Classification of combinatorial surfaces II
In this lecture we present the traditional proof of the most important theorem in Algebraic Topology: the classification of (two-dimensional) surfaces using a reduction to a normal or standard form. The main idea is to carefully cut and paste the polygons forming the surface in a particular way, creating either a sphere, or a number of crosscaps or handles. This is the 18th lecture of this beginner's course in Algebraic Topology, given by N J Wildberger of the School of Mathematics and Statisti

The Academic Upgrade Program (.Capacitaci?n Docente.) is been developed in the contexto of a MECESUP project (government funding assignments for education) at the FAU of Universidad de Chile. This program is about upgrading knowledge and user capabilities in Information and Communication Technologies (IT) of our academic team, in order to improve our pedagogical model, and to include these IT into the learning-teaching process for Architecture, Design and Geography. Considering that new technolo
Irene Tracey on FMRI and Pain
Professor Irene Tracey, director of the Oxford Centre for Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain, explains how MRI works and then talks about her research into people’s perception of pain.
Graeme Reid - Why Should the Taxpayer Fund Science and Research? UCL inaugural lecture
Professor Graeme Reid, Chair of Science and Research Policy (UCL) In his inaugural lecture as UCL's new Chair in Science and Research Policy, Graeme Reid will consider the issue of public funding for research, drawing from his previous role as Head of Research Funding in the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. In an age of austerity, with continued pressure on public finances, how should decisions on research funding be made, and how are they influenced by growing expectations of
O Design de Informa??o na Web 2.0: A interface Resultante de uma Constru??o Coletiva [Design Informa
We will address the challenges of design information in designing interfaces and functional dynamics considering a content part of the collaboration of users whose commitment to the project reaches various levels. The use of a well-structured iconography and the availability of help, shortcuts and tutorials are some of the resources already exploited, however, there is still room for reflection on the use of visuals and sounds aimed at facilitating the navigability on such projects. Here are som
An Integrated approach for 3D simulation of construction sequence
In order to eliminate design-related problems and to ease planning difficulties, a new integrated approach is required to manage and present design and construction information. This paper examines the feasibility of integrating design and construction scheduling information produced by 'industry standard' software. It describes the structure of a prototype which has been developed to generate a 3D simulation model for the cons
Differences in the neural basis of Chinese and English reading
Introduction: Previous functional imaging studies comparing Chinese and English reading have reported that a left middle frontal region is more activated by Chinese reading and the left superior temporal cortex is more activated by English reading (Tan et al. 2001; 2003). We investigated this finding and its interpretation by conducting a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) study of reading in China and England using monolingual adolescents who spoke Mandarin or English respectively.

9.081 Human Memory and Learning (MIT)
Surveys the literature on the cognitive and neural organization of human memory and learning. Includes consideration of working memory and executive control, episodic and semantic memory, and implicit forms of memory. Emphasizes integration of cognitive theory with recent insights from functional neuroimaging (e.g., fMRI and PET).
HST.722J Brain Mechanisms for Hearing and Speech (MIT)
An advanced course covering anatomical, physiological, behavioral, and computational studies of the central nervous system relevant to speech and hearing. Students learn primarily by discussions of scientific papers on topics of current interest. Recent topics include cell types and neural circuits in the auditory brainstem, organization and processing in the auditory cortex, auditory reflexes and descending systems, functional imaging of the human auditory system, quantitative methods for relat
