Designs for the high seas In years past, there was hardly any job more hazardous than to sail the seas. These days, we take it for granted that cargo ships can safely navigate the seas – largely because of technological advances in marine technology. These same technologies make it possible to extract oil from the seabed and load it on to a tanker in high winds and heavy seas. If you are intrigued by the technologies that allow for the construction of highly complex modern ships, the exploita

Data Mining Application in Higher Learning Institutions
One of the biggest challenges that higher learning institutions face today is to improve the quality of managerial decisions. The managerial decision making process becomes more complex as the complexity of educational entities increase. Educational institute seeks more efficient technology to better manage and support decision making procedures or assist them to set new strategies and plan for a better management of the current processes. One way to effectively address the challenges for improv
Supporting emergence of threaded learning conversations through augmenting Interactional and Sequent
In this article, we propose a structure of threaded learning conversations taking place in virtual learning communities. This new structure aims at facilitating the emergence of learning conversations in these learning communities. These threaded conversations take place in a forum-type tool that uses a tree data structure composed of threads to organize group communication. We identify two situations which discourage the emergence of the learning conversations taking place in threaded based too
