Progression in Multiple Representations: Supporting students' learning with multiple representations
Relating multiple representations and translating between them is important to acquire deeper knowledge about a domain. To relate representations, learners have to mentally search for similarities and differences. To translate between representations, learners need to interpret the effects that changes in one representation have on corresponding representations. The question is how presenting representations may improve or hinder the processes of relation and translation. In this study we examin

A Semantic Approach to Discovering Learning Services in Grid-Based Collaborative Systems
CSCL systems can benefit from using grids since they offer a common infrastructure enabling the access to an extended pool of resources that can provide super- computing capabilities as well as specific hardware resources. Adopting a service oriented architecture such as OGSA can further benefit CSCL systems, enabling increased flexibility to adapt and reuse learning software offered by third party providers. However, service discovery is a challenge for educators, since they cannot use their ow
Essential Science for Teachers: Life Science: Session 1. What Is Life?
What distinguishes living things from dead and nonliving things? No single characteristic is enough to define what is meant by life. In this session, five characteristics are introduced as unifying themes in the living world.,This segment shows the diverse array of living things.
25 - Suicide, Part II: Deciding under uncertainty
The discussion of suicide continues. A few more cases are introduced to consider circumstances under which it might be rational to end one's life, and more graphs are drawn that show relevant variations in the quality of one's life. A question is then posed about how one should make a decision about continuing or ending life, given that one cannot know the future with certainty. Finally, two quick moral arguments concerning suicide which rest on theological premises are presented.
21 - Other bad aspects of death, Part II
Further bad aspects of death are considered, including ubiquity, or the fact that death may occur at any time and strike anyone. Professor Kagan invites students to contemplate the possibility of death-free time periods, vacation spots, and activities. Then there is consideration of the value of the human condition, which consists of life, followed by death. Finally, the question is raised as to whether it could be appropriate to refuse to face the facts about our mortality. Professor Kagan dist
18 - The badness of death, Part III; Immortality, Part I
The discussion of the badness of death continues by asking whether it is bad that we do not exist before our birth. The views of a number of contemporary philosophers, such as Tom Nagle, Fred Feldman, and Derek Parfit, are introduced. Then Professor Kagan turns to the subject of immortality. Would it be desirable to live forever, and if so, under what circumstances one might enjoy such a prolonged existence? The lecture concludes with Bernard Williams' take on immortality which posits that no ki
16 - Dying alone; The badness of death, Part I
Professor Kagan puts forward the claim that Tolstoy's character Ivan Ilych is quite the typical man in terms of his views on mortality. All of his life he has known that death is imminent but has never really believed it. When he suddenly falls ill and is about to die, the fact of his mortality shocks him. In trying to further access how people think about death, Professor Kagan explores the claim that "we all die alone," presents a variety of arguments against it and ends by considering whether

TALAT Lecture 2109: LCA - From Environmental Consciousness to Design for the Future
This lecture introduces the currently most widely accepted methodology for life cycle analysis and shows possible effects on designing products.
Cercariae of Digenetic Trematodes: Use In Laboratory Investigations
In the complex life cycle of a digenetic trematode, the cercaria larva is shed from a snail intermediate host and represents a short-lived, aquatic transfer stage to the next host. Due to its temporary free-living existence, the cercarial stage is ideal for a number of investigative projects. Two general experiments will be conducted with the unusually large cercaria of Proterometra macrostoma. Students assess the effect of: (1) different light wavelengths on the vertical swimming burst distance
Social Evolution: Cooperation and Conflict from Molecules to Society
Rick Michod, Professor, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Although the Darwinian explanation for the diversity of life is often characterized as "nature red in tooth and claw," this talk will discuss how recent research shows that cooperation, too, plays a fundamental role in evolution. Presented March 28, 2006.
Developing Apiculture (Beekeeping) Skills: The Honey Bee
This resource introduces the honey bee, their biology, life-cycle, reproductive cycle, and communication methods. It supports the 'Developing Apiculture (Beekeeping) Skills' short course. The resources can be used individually or as a whole with the correct resource.
English Documents and Democracy
This video is accompanied by text. "Democracy largely had its origins in Great Britain, where people grew tired of life under monarchical rule. Although not all monarchs were tyrants, many of them were greedy and ruthless, taxing their people heavily and punishing them harshly, sometimes without cause. Not surprisingly, the people longed for more control over their lives. At Runnymede, England, in 1215, after years of exorbitant taxation and bloody foreign wars, English barons took a stand again

Arabic Art Forms in Spanish Book Production
Piet explains Arabic design and illustration in Spanish books, looking in particular at the Kennicott Bible, produced in La Coruna, Spain, in 1476. Distinctive features of Arabic books, including their non-figurative illuminations, are manifest in Hebrew manuscripts produced under Muslim domination in medieval Spain. Biblical manuscripts in particular were inspired by the decorations found in manuscripts of the Qur'an, as well as by geometric or floral patterns typical of Islamic architecture. I
