State of the art of interaction analysis for Metacognitive Support & Diagnosis
The document concerns Computer Based Interaction Analysis that could support technology based learning activities' participants (e.g. students, teachers) or observers (e.g. teachers, researchers). The underlying considerations and analyses focus on interactions that occur via technology based Learning Environments, designed for stand alone use or collaborative use. Special emphasis is given on Interactions Analysis (IA) outputs that could support learning activities' participants in cognitive an
Socio-cognitive functions of space in collaborative settings : a literature review about Space, Cogn
This document reports on a brief literature review about social and cognitive functions of spatial features used when collaborating in both physical and virtual settings. Those concepts come from various fields like social, cognitive as well as environmental psychology or CSCW (Computer Supported Collaborative Work). I briefly summarize the social and cognitive affordances of spatial features like distance, proxemics, co-presence, visibility or activity in the context of physical and virtual spa

Presenting and interpretting Meta-analysis
How to present and interpret the results of a meta-analysis using forest plots.
Multiple links in a broad discussion of several facets of chromatography - including theoretical and instrumental aspects. Five modes of chromatography are highlighted: GC, HPLC, LC, SEC and TLC.
Organic Structure Elucidation Workbook
This web site contains 64 structure elucidation problems for the qualitative analysis of organic compounds. For each problem the empirical formula, molecular weight, 500 MHz proton and 125 MHz carbon NMR spectra, IR and mass spectral data are presented. The problems are categorized as easy, moderate or difficult. Students in introductory Organic Chemistry who want practice identifying unknown compounds should find this site useful. Instructors looking for exam or classroom problems for students
Cyclic Voltammetry Simulator
This simulator allows the modeling of responses from experiments in cyclic voltammetry, and is applicable to a wide variety of parameters. Excellent instructional aids in text form include description of electrochemical reversibility, diffusion, instrumentation and interpretation of cyclic voltammograms, with real-time demonstration of parameter changes.
Determination of DNA Bases Chemistry: A Discovery-Based Experiment
The paper contains details of an electrochemistry lab where students are given the time to explore and design an experiment to identify the different DNA bases. The paper has a very useful compendium of literature relating to electrochemical techniques.
Theory of Supercritical Fluid Extraction via the Discovery Approach
An experiment using supercritical fluid extraction is described. The authors have devised the experiments for an undergraduate audience. The paper is intended for educators and faculty in charge of a physical or analytical chemistry lab.
Student Assessment of Learning Gains
This University of Wisconsin site is designed for instructors of all disciplines who would like feedback from their students about how the course elements are helping their students to learn. This page is a usable link for assessment, collaborative learning and technology in all college science courses by faculty or graduate students, although there is no particular focus on analytical science.
WebSpectra - Problems in NMR and IR Spectroscopy
This web site provides thirty beginning, twenty-nine intermediate, and sixteen advanced NMR structure analysis problems and their solutions. For every unknown a proton and a carbon spectrum are provided. Many of the more advanced problems contain COSY and DEPT spectra as well. A particularly useful feature of this site is that the user can zoom into spectral regions in all of the spectra.
Learning Module: What Chemists need to know about copyright
This website, developed by ACS Joint Board/Council Committee on Copyrights, provides a learning module for chemists to learn about the legal aspects governing copyright and what constitutes copyright material. It contains a set of five useful resources: (1) an html learning module about copyright for chemists; (2) a set of questions faculty could use to test students\' understanding of copyright; (3) a summary of copyright policy; (4) a pamphlet (pdf file) that could be handed out to a class fo
GEM: Greener Education Materials for Chemists
This site is a resource for green chemistry principles and literature. It provides links for making green organic experiments and teaching the principles of green synthesis. Although it does not have many links specifically to chemical analysis, it provides an extensive overview and source of information regarding the important area of green chemistry.
This site by GlobalFia provides a tutorial on the general aspects of flow injection analysis (FIA), sequential injection analysis (SIA) and the newly coined zone fluidics. Thus, it serves as an excellent resource for teaching flow methods to both undergraduates and graduate students, and as a refresher to practitioners. The tutorials are divided into 9 sections: introduction, fundamentals, dispersion, enrichment, chemistry, SIA, zone fluidics and bibliography. This modular approach makes inform
Course on the use of radionuclides in analytical chemistry. Types of radioactive decay are discussed as well as the techniques of scintillation counting, neutron activation analysis, and gamma spectroscopy.
Learning and using requirements representation notations by information technology professionals
This dissertation describes a unified system modeling approach and notation that accommodates the user view and a pilot study of the ability of information technology (IT) professionals to learn and use requirements notations to represent user interface requirements. The study mapped a non-user view requirements notation into a user-view requirements notation. In so doing, it showed that the issues and concerns of non-technical users could be integrated into the overall requirements for a system
Fused deposition of ceramics: a comprehensive experimental, analytical and computational study of ma
Customer-driven product customization and continued demand for cost and time savings have generated a renewed interest in agile manufacturing based on improvements on Rapid Prototyping (RP) technologies. The advantages of RP technologies are: 1. ability to shorten the product design and development time, 2.) suitability for automation and decrease in the level of human intervention, 3.) ability to build many geometrically complex shapes. A shift from â prototypingâ to â manufacturingâ
Lift Every Voice and Sing: A Gospel Choir Participation Experience and the Persistence of African Am
The majority of our nation‟s academic institutions fall short in their efforts to ensure that African American students successfully persist from admission to graduation. Since the majority of African American students attend Predominately White Institutions (PWIs), these institutions must be held to the highest standard of accountability for African American student retention. Therefore, PWIs must explore alternative retention mechanisms that will increase the African American student‟s int
