E-Conteúdos e Ambientes de Aprendizagem
Neste capítulo, são abordados temas relativos à criação de conteúdos para ambientes virtuais de aprendizagem. Numa primeira análise crítica, procura-se contrariar a ênfase exagerada nas características técnicas dos ambientes multimédia e do pouco interesse normalmente dedicado aos processos de interacção e às necessidades reais do utilizador individual. As variáveis intrínsecas ao perfil cognitivo do aprendente e ao processo individual de aprendizagem, bem como as variáveis rel

Exploring Semantic Description and
Matching Technologies for Enhancing the
Automatic Composition of
In the implementation of e-learning frameworks, a problem still unsolved is how to use and integrate low-level learning services to compose more complex high-level services or tools that make sense to both tutors and learners. In that sense semantic description of Grid learning Services appears like a powerful tool to be used for discovering and matching learning services depending of a set of parameters inside the learning framework. These parameters must represent significant functional charac
Help Me Understand Genetics
Help Me Understand Genetics presents basic information about genetics in clear language and provides links to online resources.
Internet Scout Project
The "Earth Observing System (EOS) Aura is a NASA mission to study the Earth's ozone, air quality, and climate" by researching the composition, chemistry, and dynamics of the Earth's atmosphere. Visitors can learn how Aura is investigating three questions: Is the Earth's ozone layer recovering? Is air quality getting worse? How is Earth's climate changing? Researchers can find extensive details about the flight, spacecraft devices and specifications, and the data processing and validation. Visito
A Simulated Student Can Improve Collaborative Learning
This paper describes a Simulated Student architecture designed to detect and avoid three situations that decrease the benefits of learning in collaboration. These are off-topic conversations, students with passive behaviour and problems related to students learning. In order to check the efficiency of the model in a real case a Simulated Student, which has the features described in the model, was added to a collaborative, synchronous system for learning programming. This paper describes the ex
Internet Scout Project
The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) developed this website to supply the public with approved definitions of chemical terminology by utilizing Adobe Acrobat Reader. Originally created in 1997, IUPAC is currently adding terms from recent IUPAC recommendations to this website. With the concise definitions and appropriate diagrams, students can find assistance with unfamiliar chemical language. The website provides links to related terms, making navigation through the site
A primer in MathML
This course, as the name suggest, is intended to help authors who want to publish mathematical content on web. The emphasis here is to enable learners to quickly adapt to the extensive mathML markup language and begin writing codes even without a specialized editor, available commercially. The course is presented in the form of a tutorial, which essentially saves on unnecessary details. This tutorial is not intended currently (may be supplemented later with the help coming from others) to be a c
History of Information - Fall 2006
This course explores the history of information and associated technologies, uncovering why we think of ours as 'the information age.' We will select moments in the evolution of production, recording, and storage from the earliest writing systems to the world of Short Message Service (SMS) and blogs. In every instance, we'll be concerned with both what and when and how and why, and we will keep returning to the question of technological determinism: how do technological developments affect socie
Patrons d'exercices pour Aplusix Une étape du développement de l'EIAH occasion d'un travail entre
Au cours du développement de l'EIAH APLUSIX, il y a eu de nombreuses occasions d'un travail partagé entre informaticiens et didacticiens. Quelques-unes sont décrites succinctement. Lors de la mise en place de patrons d'exercices et d'une carte de tests, une coopération plus approfondie a eu lieu, en respectant les disciplines de chacun. Cette mise en place de patrons d'exercices est décrite plus longuement.,Preprint
Piecewise Linear Grapher
Highlight the language of domain and range, and the ideas of continuity and discontinuity, with this tool that links symbolic and graphic representations of each interval of a piecewise linear function.
Independence or Dependency 3 from the course World Regions, Peoples, and States
This course will provide a framework for recognizing and analyzing the major distinctive regions of the world in comparative context. The most important interrelations between environment, economy, ethnicity, and the national identity and viability of states will be explored.

Antonyms for Kids - Part 3
This slide show is a culmination for 2 lessons on antonyms. Students are asked to say the opposite word to the one that appears on the screen. Images help them find the answer. Part 1 of the 3-part series tells the story of 2 monkeys, Anton and Nim who explore the world of antonyms (words with opposite meanings)
Part 2 of 3 uses antonyms in a story. (7:46)
Encylcopedia of Laser Physics and Technology
This is a comprehensive encyclopedia that provides a brief definition or explanation of a keyword term or principle of laser physics and technology. The site is organized so that one can click on an alphabet letter to get a listing of keywords or terms for searching. This site will be useful for novices in the field and anyone who needs a refresher or reminder of terms and definitions. Most useful to upper division undergrads, graduate students and practitioners who need to learn terms to naviga
Primary sources on copyright in five jurisdictions 1450-1900
This website is “a digital archive of primary sources on copyright from the invention of the printing press (c. 1450) to the Berne Convention (1886) and beyond”. Funded by the AHRC, this ambitious and extensive database includes digital images and commentary for key texts in the evolution of intellectual property law pertaining to five modern jurisdictions: Britain, Germany, France, Italy, the United States. Documents include “privileges, statutes, judicial decisions, contracts
Women and Media
In this lesson, students examine the role of women in the media; critique and discuss different portrayals of women in popular culture and focus on how these reflect larger societal and cultural values.
The Subaltern Learns to Speak: African Voice and the Haitian Revolution in The Kingdom of this World
The subaltern may not be able to speak in a world inundated by Western philosophy, thought, and political organization, but in The Kingdom of This World, Alejo Carpentier offers the possibility of unlearning the language of the hegemony. In this novel, African voice solidifies African resistance in Haiti, and that voice is symbolized through the novel's agnus dei, Ti Noel. This African slave's first words are a daring question that begins to highlight his potential for rebelli
Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
This challenge asks students to determine possible ways for combining stamps costing 15 and 33 cents to total 1 dollar 77 cents. It notes that this type of problem is similar to a process used for creating security codes. This online student activity is part of the Figure This! collection of 80 mathematical challenges. Students are encouraged to make a chart as they explore possible number combinations. The answer page describes and illustrates four different approaches to finding the solution,
