E-Portfolio Toolkit - Booklet
This E-Portfolio Toolkit is based on experience of developing the “Year Abroad E-Portfolio”, undertaken by the School of Languages at Leeds Metropolitan University. We use an E-Portfolio to assess our students on their period abroad because we think it encourages them to fully engage with culture(s) and language of the target country and to reflect on the resulting cultural and linguistic development. As part of our project, we have also developed a set of learning activities and materials,

Richard K. Lester — Nuclear Innovation for the 21st Century
Nuclear energy will be essential for achieving deep, rapid reductions in global greenhouse gas emissions. Today it produces almost two-thirds of all low-carbon electricity in the U.S. Nuclear power technology is highly reliable, easily scalable, and orders of magnitude more compact than other energy sources. Richard K. Lester's presentation at the MIT Club of Northern California on November 6, 2014, Palo Alto, CA

The Philosophies of the Founding Fathers, Part III (Audio Only)
A podcast. The last episode ended with mention that - the belief that God is central to the Judeo-Christian values in America, which explains why “those who most affirm Judeo-Christian values are unmoved by the idea that the war in Iraq is moral if Germany, France, China and Russia say so, but immoral if they oppose it.

Modelling the Requirements of an Animated Pedagogical Agent for a Web-Based Learning Environment thr
This paper describes and discusses the importance of having a representation which models the key factors associated to the requirements of an animated pedagogical agent for an interactive learning environment, in particularly, for school students. The IPO (Input-Process-Output) relationships are proposed to address this issue. The formulation of IPO relationship are described in detail and the application of IPO relationship is shown through the case study of specifying the requirements of an a
