Call for Papers for OCW Consortium Global Conference 2011

The OpenCourseWare Consortium invites session proposals for its 2011 global conference, Celebrating 10 Years of OpenCourseWare. The OpenCourseWare Consortium is a worldwide community of universities and organizations committed to advancing OpenCourseWare and its impact on global education. The OpenCourseWare movement has grown significantly over the last decade; today there are 13,000 courses published by 150 universities.


We encourage submissions for sessions that highli

Photosynthesis
This animation is a very simplified description of the light-dependent reaction of photosynthesis, a unique biological process in which light energy (sunlight) is converted to chemical energy (adenosine triphosphate). The light-independent reaction takes place in all eukaryotic photoautotrophs (plants, algae, etc.). The process shown here occurs in less than a trillionth of a second, constantly (when light is available) and in great abundance.

Physics Nuclear fission E=mc²
Nuclear fission is a nuclear reaction in which the nucleus of an atom splits into smaller parts, often producing free neutrons and lighter nuclei, which may eventually produce photons (in the form of gamma rays). Fission of heavy elements is an exothermic reaction which can release large amounts of energy both as electromagnetic radiation and as kinetic energy of the fragments (heating the bulk material where fission takes place). Fission is a form of nuclear transmutation because the resu

John Brown's Raid in 1859
This video is accompanied by text. "Tension between the North and South over the slavery issue grew more intense as the election of 1860 drew near. Violent reaction to the Kansas-Nebraska Act spread rapidly throughout the nation. The Supreme Court’s Dred Scott decision deepened the divide between Northerners and Southerners—antislavery supporters and proslavery-ites. In 1859, fifty-nine-year-old John Brown devised a plan to provoke a slave revolt to answer the “sacking” of Lawrence, Kans
