A Virtual Organisation for e-Learning
We present in this paper the results of an European funded project Diogene, finished in October 2004, whose aim has been the design and the development of a distributed e-learning system able to perform several automatic actions such as course customization and information retrieval on the Semantic Web. The Diogene architecture is based on a network of specialized Organizations each of which has been realized as an independent Web Service.
The OTTER Sami tent OER
This is a reproduction of the Second Life Sami tent and is for free distribution within Second Life as a repurposable OER. It is available in two clearly identified forms: 1. As a single SL artefact, where all discrete items have been linked together to make a whole. 2. As a number of discrete SL artefacts. In addition, this OER includes two SL training guides: one for students and one for tutors. Users are encouraged to first read the 'Handout for the Sami tent OER' .
Information at Early Design Stages
This paper concentrates on information at the early stages of the design process. However those do not concern all the information regarding the task available to the designer or the already existing solutions, but the information generated by the designer during the process of problem solving. The creative nature of architectural design and the lack of complete information during the process determine the role and the place of the information system in the design. It is necessary that the infor
Incompatible Pencil - Chance for Changing in Design Process
The existing Caad systems limit designers creativity by constraining them to work with prototypes provided by the system's knowledge base. Most think of computers as drafting machines and consider CAAD models as merely proposals for future buildings. But this kind of thinking (computers as simple drafting machines) seems to be a way without future. New media demands new process and new process demands new media. We have to give some thougt to impact of CAAD on the design process and in which par
8.2 Too much protein
This Unit studies 'proteins'. Starting with a simple analysis of the molecular make up, the Unit moves on to look at the importance of protein and how they are digested and absorbed

Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Solutions Using R and Bioconductor
Covers the basics of R software and the key capabilities of the Bioconductor project (a widely used open source and open development software project for the analysis and comprehension of data arising from high-throughput experimentation in genomics and molecular biology and rooted in the open source statistical computing environment R), including importation and preprocessing of high-throughput data from microarrays and other platforms. Also introduces statistical concepts and tools necessary t
Fundamentals of Program Evaluation
Fundamentals of Program Evaluation familiarizes students in different types of program evaluation, including needs assessment, formative research, process evaluation, monitoring of outputs and outcomes, impact assessment, and cost analysis. Students gain practical experience through a series of exercises involving the design of a conceptual framework, development of indicators, analysis of computerized service statistics, and development of an evaluation plan to measure impact. This course cover

2.2 The Cain and Hopkins thesis
Britain was the first country to industrialise, and it acquired the largest empire ever during this same period. But its sphere of economic influence extended far beyond the boundaries of the formal British Empire. This unit focuses on the economics of empire, using a case study of one town, Dundee in eastern Scotland, to explore this huge topic.
Methods in Biostatistics II
Presents fundamental concepts in applied probability, exploratory data analysis, and statistical inference, focusing on probability and analysis of one and two samples. Topics include discrete and continuous probability models; expectation and variance; central limit theorem; inference, including hypothesis testing and confidence for means, proportions, and counts; maximum likelihood estimation; sample size determinations; elementary non-parametric methods; graphical displays; and data transform
Deprivation and Education: The evidence on pupils in England, Foundation Stage to Key Stage 4
This Government paper summarises research and statistical evidence about the effect of deprivation on the education of pupils from the foundation stage to key stage 4 in maintained mainstream schools. It is written by the Schools Analysis and Research Division of the DCSF.
A Study of Gene Linkage and Mapping Using Tetrad Analysis in the Fungus Sordaria fimicola
This laboratory focuses on some aspects of spore color determination in the fungus Sordaria fimicola. Tetrad analysis of asci from a cross between strains mutant for two spore color genes is used to determine if the genes are linked and to map the location of each gene relative to the centromere. This laboratory is logistically simple and inexpensive, the data are relatively easy to collect, and the analysis facilitates a good understanding of meiosis and Mendel's principles of inheritance.

An Introduction to Stereological Analysis: Morphometric Techniques for Beginning Biologists
This activity presents several exercises that will introduce students to stereological analysis, which is a useful method for correlating structural and functional data.
Garett Jones on Macro and Twitter
Garett Jones of George Mason University talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about the art of communicating economics via puzzles and short provocative insights. They discuss Jones's Twitter strategy of posting quotes and short puzzles to provoke thinking. Jones, drawing on his experience as a Senate staffer, discusses the interaction between politics and economics in the area of tax cuts and earmarks. For example, are earmarks good or bad? Jones gives an unconventional analysis. He also discus

11.540J Urban Transportation Planning (MIT)
The history, policy, and politics of urban transportation are discussed in this class. Also covered are the role of the federal government, the "highway revolt" and public transit in the auto era, using analytic tools for transportation planning and policy analysis. The class then explores the contribution of transportation to air pollution and climate change, land use and transportation interactions, together with issues with bicycles, pedestrians, and traffic calming. Examples used in the clas
