Mini project : ITC web and media hosting services : presentation transcript
This is a Mini Project presentation about best practices in setting up web and media hosting services. It is part of the 2009/10 BSc in Internet Technology and E-Commerce (course number 2ELE0076) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes. This open educational resource was released through the Higher Education Academy Engineering Subject Centre Open Engineering Resources Pilot project. The project was funded by H
Particle technology : dilute particle systems
This is a video of the second lecture in the module Particle Technology, delivered to second year students who have already studied basic fluid mechanics. Dilute particle systems is mainly about sedimentation of single particles and dilute suspensions. The Particle Reynolds number determines the degree of turbulence in the fluid and techniques are provided for settling in laminar and turbulent systems. Industrial clarification is included. This open educational resource was released through t
Mobile Usability in Educational Contexts: What have we learnt?
The successful development of mobile learning is dependent on human factors in the use of new mobile and wireless technologies. The majority of mobile learning activity continues to take place on devices that were not designed with educational applications in mind, and usability issues are often reported. The paper reflects on progress in approaches to usability and on recent developments, with particular reference to usability findings reported in studies of mobile learning. The requirements of

High magnification SEM image of open cell polyurethane foam
If a gas is injected into a liquid it forms a cellular foam structure. When a thermoset prepolymer of low viscosity is foamed, the polymer can drain from the cell walls (driven by surface tension) before it sets at the cell edges, leaving an open-celled foam. The cell edges have three concave sides, and some remnants of collapsed cell walls can be seen at the cell edges.
Fe, Ni 30, C 0.3 (wt%), quenched - martensite plates
This sample was quenched to -80 °C to give a metastable martensitic microstructure. The martensite plates show a lenticular morphology as the material attempts to shear as it transforms but is unable to open up voids at the grain boundaries. The plates form in a similar way to mechanical twins but the shear processes lead to changes in crystal structure as well as crystallographic orientation.

Time-based computer aided architectural research for mapping techniques in multicultural space re-de
This paper shall explore the process of research for the development of time-based computer aided applications as an alternative for mapping techniques. As part of an on going research, it was determined the necessity of implementing computer design strategies for time-based mapping due to the complexity and real-time variability of multicultural societies within its chrono-geo-ghraphical constrains for architectural space re-definitions.

Nudging people to make better choices: transport applications
Dr Erel Avineri (Reader in Travel Behaviour, UWE, Bristol) talks on 'Nudging people to make better choices: transport applications' as part of the OxTran Seminar Series at the Transport Studies Unit, University of Oxford in 2008.
Getting Started with Source Control with Visual Studio Online | Visual Studio Toolbox This is another in Robert's Getting Started series, where he provides an introduction to a topic that everyone knows about but not everyone is actually doing (or doing enough of). In this episode, Robert shows how to get started with source control with Visual Studio Online. You will see how to set up a team project using Visual Studio Online, add a solution to source control, check out and check in source code and how to search, merge and branch the codebase.

Embodiment and feminist theory.
This module helps develop an understanding of feminist theories by focusing on the debates surrounding the body. It introduces a number of key feminist theorists and draws on empirical studies to explain and explore theoretical issues. Building on an understanding of how bodies are re/constructed through culture, the module looks in more depth on the impact of key social divisions.
