20.441J Biomaterials-Tissue Interactions (MIT)
This course covers the principles of materials science and cell biology underlying the design of medical implants, artificial organs, and matrices for tissue engineering. Methods for biomaterials surface characterization and analysis of protein adsorption on biomaterials. Molecular and cellular interactions with biomaterials are analyzed in terms of unit cell processes, such as matrix synthesis, degradation, and contraction. Mechanisms underlying wound healing and tissue remodeling following imp
7.340 Regenerative Medicine: from Bench to Bedside (MIT)
Regenerative medicine involves the repair and regeneration of tissues for therapeutic purposes, such as replacing bone marrow in leukemia, cartilage in osteoarthritis or cells of the heart after a heart attack. In this course, we will explore basic mechanisms of how cells differentiate into specific tissues in response to a variety of biologic signaling molecules. We will discuss the use of such factors for in vitro tissue production. We will also study the cellular mechanisms involved in the cl
Distributed Web Systems - Distributed Systems Architectures
This lecture forms part of the "Distributed Systems Architectures" topic in the Distributed Web Systems module.
First Year Undergraduate Organic Chemistry Workbook
This resource is a comprehensive organic chemistry workbook for first year undergraduates. It is designed as a revision resource with plenty of worked examples followed by problems for students to try themselves. Worked answers are given to all the problems to allow students to develop confidence in problem solving.

Ready to Make an Impact in the Social Sector
Natalie Schafer (Darden MBA Class of 2011) talks about why she chose to come to the University of Virginia Darden School of Business, knowing that she wanted to transition from the private sector to the social sector.
7.06 Cell Biology (MIT)
This course deals with the biology of cells of higher organisms: The structure, function, and biosynthesis of cellular membranes and organelles; cell growth and oncogenic transformation; transport, receptors, and cell signaling; the cytoskeleton, the extracellular matrix, and cell movements; chromatin structure and RNA synthesis.
Le télé-apprentissage et le développement de compétences
Cette étude vise à dresser un portrait général de l'état actuel du télé-apprentissage et du développement des compétences au sein des entreprises. Le télé-apprentissage semble jouer un rôle stratégique dans les contextes de la "nouvelle économie", des "organisations apprenantes" et du "nouveau paradigme pédagogique".,Note de recherche No 2002-2, Télé-université, Université du Québec

Virtual Pedagogical Agents as Aids for High School Physics Teachers
The Pathway project is improving the quality of physics teaching and the number of available physics teachers by providing virtual expert help on issues of pedagogy and content. The project combines Carnegie Mellons Synthetic Interviews and state-ofthe- art digital video library technology with pedagogical advances developed at Kansas State University, and materials contributed by master teachers. The Synthetic Interview is a technology and technique that creates an anthropomorphic interface i

What's Gotten Into You?
In this activity, students use models to investigate the process and consequences of water contamination on the land, groundwater, and plants. This is a good introduction to building water filters found in the associated activity, The Dirty Water Project.
In this activity, students observe a model of a waterwheel to investigate the transformations of energy involved in turning the blades of a hydro-turbine into work. Students work as engineers to create a model for a new waterwheel while considering resources, such as time and materials, in their design. Students also discuss and explore the characteristics of hydropower plants.

"The NIST X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) Database gives easy access to the energies of many photoelectron and Auger-electron spectral lines." The website offers concise definitions of the data fields. Users can search the element data by binding energy, auger kinetic energy, auger parameter, doublet separation, chemical shift, or surface/interface core-level shift. The website allows users to retrieve data for groups of elements, an element in a compound, chemical name, and chemical clas
