Using older and refurbished computers
This unit covers the basics of older and refurbished computers: what they are, the benefits and risks of using them, who should use them, and where to get them.
Entrepreneurship and Corporate Venturing
Course Goals: a) Students will gain an understanding the economic, technological, societal, and global dimensions of entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship. b) Students will understand the major differences between personal entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship, which often occurs in larger mature organizations. c) Students will understand the relationships between personal goals, competencies, and experience to assess what they bring to all types of ventures. d) Students will understand and prac
Pathophysiology of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism
In addition to covering the basics in the Concepts in Endocrine Pathophysiology lecture, the lectures in this course cover a wide range of subjects, from Pituitary Neoplasia to Diabetes and Obesity - Treatment to Goiter and Thyroid Nodular Disease. The course also contains Small Group Discussion sessions which consolidate the concepts and facts acquired during the lectures and pursues the ability to solve common clinical problems in Endocrinology and Metabolism with sample cases and solutions.

Doing Science and Technology: The Process of Scientific Inquiry
This site helps students understand the basics of scientific inquiry. Lessons progress from what students already know about scientific inquiry, or think they know, toward a more complete and accurate perspective. Activities include distinguishing questions that can be tested by a scientific investigation from those that cannot and participating in a computer-based scientific investigation as members of a fictitious community health department.
RobertNiles.com: Statistics Every Writer Should Know
Robert Niles, a journalist and producer for the LA Times, created this site to help other writers learn the basics of statistics. He explains many key concepts that are essential to report accurate, meaningful numbers and facts. After starting with the fundamentals of mean, median, and percent, Niles goes on to describe more advanced topics like normal distribution, margin of error, and data analysis. For each section, an example or two are provided to demonstrate proper usage of the techniques.
Fast Scan Voltammetry
A short presentation of theory and practice of electrochemistry focused on use of microelectrodes and micro-bands in flow cells. Problems encountered are addressed and response characteristics discussed.
Inside the Human Body: The Respiratory System
This Web site from the Canadian Lung Association contains an excellent collection of learning resources about the respiratory system for grades 1-12. Content varies according to grade range; for instance, the section for grades 1-3 covers basics of lungs and their function with an illustrated story, coloring book, interactive games, and downloadable worksheets. Older students focus in on smoking, air pollution, and other issues in addition to covering respiratory system biology. As with the sect
NMR Spectroscopy - Theory
This web site begins with a simple quantum description of NMR and proceeds to introduce resonance absorption, relaxation, chemical shifts, and scalar couplings. This site will be useful for advanced undergraduate students needing a description of NMR that is more detailed than that given in most introductory Organic texts.
Mass Spectrometry for Chromatographers
This short course looks at mass spectrometers as detectors for gas chromatography. Includes instrumentation, spectral interpretation, data collection, worked problems, and a knowledge quiz.
Microbiology and Immunology
This internet textbook covers all aspects of microbiology and immunology and is based on our course for second year Medical Students.

This deliverable focuses on the link between individual and organizational learning based on the interaction processes at the workplace, and key implications for personal and organizational knowledge management as they relate to organizational performance. Building on the results from PROLEARN D5.3, which introduced the SECI process framework, we here modify the SECI model so that it better fits the observed interaction processes that go on between employees at the workplace. The aim is to captu
This material will cover immunization basics and survey the public health, sociological, and economic literature, identifying and analyzing common problems using a standard problem-solving approach.
