Motion is vital to life, and to science. This unit will help you to understand why classical motion is probably the most fundamental part of physics. You will examine motion along a line and the ways in which such motion can be represented, through the use of graphs, equations and differential calculus.

James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879) is arguably the father of electromagnetism, and unarguably one of the greatest physicists ever. Einstein called Maxwell's equations 'the most important event in physics since Newton's time, not only because of their wealth of content, but also because they form a pattern for a new type of law'. This unit will examine Maxwell's greatest triumph, the prediction that electromagnetic waves can propagate vast distances through empty space and the realisation that light

Small company attitude towards ICT based solutions: some key-elements to improve it
In this paper we illustrate some research results concerning the attitude of small companies towards ICT based solutions (specifically Distance Communication, Training and Consultancy); in addition, we introduce some key-elements to overtake the obstacles to introducing ICT in small companies for new business processes; amongst others, we highlight the need for training about technological innovation as well as about organizational and cultural changes that must occur within a company.

Programming as mathematical narrative
This paper describes a narrative-oriented approach to the design and analysis of a computational system and a set of activities for mathematical learning. Our central contention is that programming can offer a key to resolving the tension between the different representational structures of narrative and mathematical formalism. In the course of describing our approach, we make a distinction between the epistemic-cognitive elements of narrative and the social, cultural and affective elements. We

Computer-Supported Scripting of Interaction in Collaborative Learning Environments: Framework on mul
Collaboration scripts aim to facilitate effective interaction patterns for collaborative learning that do not occur spontaneously. So far, diverse non-generic scripts have been conceptualized and investigated in CSCL environments. The specification of collaboration scripts aims to provide a common terminolgy for describing scripts and to abstract the core design principles of scripts to better understand effects and mechanisms of collaboration scripts and to apply and re-apply collaboration scri

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
