University of Nottingham, physics and astronomy resources
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught in 2007-2008 and 2009-2010. This module introduces mathematical analysis building upon the experience of limits of sequences and properties of real numbers and on calculus. It includes limits and continuity of functions between Euclidean spaces, differentiation and integration. A variety of very important new concepts are introduced by investigating the properties of numerous examples, and developing the a

Laboratory Investigation of Fatty Acid Supplements
This is a laboratory-based investigation of so-called essential fatty acids (e.g. omega-3,6 fatty acids) in supplements. Students carry out extractions and analyse extracts by GC and/or GC/MS. They also carry out small scale derivatisation reactions and purifications. Data is analaysed wuth respect to composition of individual supplements, comparison with packaging information, etc.
Restoring a tooth (Gold Crown) - Part 2
This video shows the second stage of the production of a cast gold crown for a damaged tooth. The wax template of the tooth is sprued using wax wire, then invested in a refractory investment material. The video shows the mould being heated to both expand it and prevent against thermal shock. A centrifugal casting process is shown, using an electrical furnace for melting the gold. From set of videos used in Advanced Restorative Course in School of Clinical Dentistry, The University of Sheffield.
ECorr: Potential Measurement
An important corrosion property often measured in the lab and field is the potential of an electrode. This case study gives an overview of how and why this is done as well as giving insight into how to interpret the measurements. This is an introductory level case study.
ECorr: Cathodic Protection
This case study presents an investigation into the corrosion protection of a steel oil platform submerged in sea water. Cathodic protection is highlighted as the most economic and the implementation of a cathodic protection system is explored in detail. This is an advanced level case study.
Issues with re-using medical images in UK HE settings: an OER view
Presentation by Suzanne Hardy, Senior Advisor (Information)(November 2009) at JISC Medical Images Workshop, London. The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) announced an initial £5.7 million of funding for pilot projects that will open up existing high-quality education resources from UK higher education institutions to the world. The Higher Education Academy and JISC are working in partnership to deliver 12-month pilot projects - formally launched in April 2009.

Utilities management (Energy and water) Activities
Activities for Part Five of Greening Business: Organizations can make many improvements to their management of energy and water, from energy conservation measures through individual behaviour, smart energy systems and building improvements, to maximising their energy supply from renewable sources and energy generation on site. Water conservation measures can be implemented including low flush toilets and low flow taps, through to investigating water efficiency in industrial processes and water
Research methods: Semiotics and signification
This resource is part of "Research methods" module. This module is designed primarily for students taking sport-related courses, but knowledge and use of research methods is widely shared across a range of social science disciplines, so students from any other such discipline should find this useful too. It is important to focus on methods, almost to the exclusion of any actual content, at least until you find your bearings. Thus although there are important differences between them students of
Working with charts, graphs and tables
Your course might not include any maths or technical content but, at some point during your course, it’s likely that you’ll come across information represented in charts, graphs and tables. You’ll be expected to know how to interpret this information. This unit will help you to develop the skills you need to do this. This unit can be used in conjunction with the ‘More working with charts, graphs and tables’ unit, which looks into more ways to present statistical information and shows y

You could use templates to begin the process of reflection. Here is a two stage template you can modify for your own use; Stage 1: A very personal consideration of events etc. You may only want to keep this for yourself to see. Stage 2: Translating your feeling and thoughts into a record that can be shown to others together with extended analysis. The entries do not need to be large but related to the topic.
You could use templates to begin the process of reflection. Here is a template based on learning outcomes that you can modify for your own use. Add your own learning outcomes and appropriate questions

The OTTER Sami tent OER
This is a reproduction of the Second Life Sami tent and is for free distribution within Second Life as a repurposable OER. It is available in two clearly identified forms: 1. As a single SL artefact, where all discrete items have been linked together to make a whole. 2. As a number of discrete SL artefacts. In addition, this OER includes two SL training guides: one for students and one for tutors. Users are encouraged to first read the 'Handout for the Sami tent OER' .
