One of the key aims of ALPS is to improve the assessment of competence in practice across 16 professions, increasing the confidence of new graduates and their employers. The CIPA tool has been developed to establish measures of new graduate confidence in their ability across a number of areas of professional competence. Initially it is being piloted as a self-rating tool with new graduates with the intention of extending its use by employers of new graduates. The tool offers a way of establishin
The research project in progress in the School of Architecture at the Izmir Institute of Technology includes documentation and reconstruction (by 3D modeling in electronic media) of damaged and lost early modern buildings in the Izmir region. The research aims to analyze the differences between Izmir modern buildings and Universal Modern Style, and preserve information on architectural heritage for future generations. The project is at the phase of developing an interactive web-based historical
Interweaving key moments of drama in Darwin's life with current research, "Darwin's Dangerous Idea" explores why his theory of evolution might matter even more today than it did in his own time. This documentary is suitable for high school grades. Run time 10:49.
This work presumes that integrating modeling tools and digital fabrication technology into architectural practice will transform how we build the detached house. Single-family houses come in all shapes and sizes, and in doing so, imply variation as well in certain materials, methods, and lighter classes of structure. Ultimately, houses are extensions, if not expressions, of those dwelling within, yet our attempts to produce appealing manufactured houses have prioritized standardization over var
How does the global network infrastructure work and what are the design principles on which it is based? In what ways are these design principles compromised in practice? How do we make it work better in today's world? How do we ensure that it will work well in the future in the face of rapidly growing scale and heterogeneity? And how should Internet applications be written, so they can obtain the best possible performance both for themselves and for others using the infrastructure? These are so
This 4:40 long video uses animation and other images to show Mercury, the smallest planet in the solar system. Mercury's surface temperature can go from a 800 degrees to a 300 degrees below zero. Mercury orbits the sun in just 88 days, much faster than any other planets. There is an ad at the beginning about respecting people and their sexual orientation which is shown at times.

In the industrial world knowledge is developed very fast. As most countries are depending on employees with a high level of knowledge and skills the term ?Life Long Learning? has been formulated and the concept is more and more accepted. Institutions of higher education are more and more involved in creating supplementary education more independent of time and place. Distance learning was originally carried out by ordinary mail, which was slow but might then have been the only solution for peopl
This video has footage of the river Po. A speaker talks about the benefits of it's fertile banks and shows how the towns, fields and factories are effected by flooding.
There is no narration, but the video does show how to create the form for using Cornell note taking. It gives ideas about taking these notes using a computer. This would be useful as an introduction if the students already understand the basics of how to use the Cornell method.
Massive open online courses (MOOCs) are shaking up traditional models of education.
