Digital Storytelling Multimedia Archive
Digital stories are multimedia-authoring projects combining texts, images, and audio files into a short film clip (mostly 3-5 minutes). In recent years, digital storytelling has turned college and university classrooms into spaces of creative critical production. Digital stories have proven to be a powerful medium for students to represent a theoretically-informed understanding of texts and contexts in a form other than “traditional” writing. This multimedia archive on digital storytelli

NetGeners.Net space is there to provide you with the opportunity to work on your F/OSS project in a more structured way, to see what others are doing and how they do it and also to engage with fellow students of your course and others interested in this area.
Project Gutenberg is the first and largest single collection of free electronic books, or eBooks. Michael Hart, founder of Project Gutenberg, invented eBooks in 1971 and continues to inspire the creation of eBooks and related technologies today. There are 17,000 free books in the Project Gutenberg Online Book Catalog. Also, audio books, sheet music, recordings, and pictures, moving and stills.
Fundamentals of Die Casting Design
This book describes the fundamentals of design of the die casting process and die mold/runner. It is intended for people who have at least some knowledge of the basics of fundamental science, such calculus, physics etc. This book will benefit the die casting engineer (the project and process engineers) as well as managers and anyone else who deals with the die casting operations will find this information useful.

Imagining the City: Memories and cultures in Cape Town
The overriding strength of this book is that it places people, ordinary people at the centre of memory at the centre of historical and contemporary experience and thus at the centre of re-imagining and owning the city of Cape Town It is as they speak what they choose to say what they choose to remain silent about that we become aware of the possibilities of the city if it really did embrace all its people in all of their diversity. From the Foreword by Mike van Graan playwright and arts activist

Classroom Innovations through Lesson Study
Classroom Innovations through Lesson Study is an APEC EDNET Project that aims to improve the quality of education in the area of Mathematics. This project is sponsored by APEC Members Japan and Thailand. The APEC-Tsukuba International Conference III was broadcast live from Tokyo, December 9-10, 2007. The project has produced useful papers describing mathematical thinking, lesson videos of classroom instruction. This project focuses on Lesson Study with the goal of improving the quality of educat
Rapid Application Development - Client Server and Multitier architectures
This lecture forms part of the "Client Server and Multitier architectures" topic in the Rapid Application Development module.
Introduction to Nanoscale Science: Surface Area to Volume Ratio Module
Many intriguing phenomena observed in the "nanoworld" can be attributed to the increase in the surface to volume ratio ( SVR ) at the nanoscale. Understanding the surface area effects to volume changes is thus crucial to the understanding of nanoscale phenomena and nanotechnology applications. As an introduction to the nanoworld, the major goals of this module are to (1) give students a feel for just how small the nanoscale is, (2) give students practice in mathematically communicating nanoscale
15.821 Listening to the Customer (MIT)
The 15.821 and 15.822 Sequence Marketing research may be divided into methods that emphasize understanding "the customer" and methods that emphasize understanding "the market." This course (15.821) deals with the customer and emphasizes qualitative methods (interviews, focus groups, Voice of the Customer, composing questions for a survey). The companion course (15.822) deals with the market and emphasizes quantitative methods (sampling, survey execution, quantitative data interpretation, conjoin
6.933J The Structure of Engineering Revolutions (MIT)
6.933J / STS.420J provides an integrated approach to engineering practice in the real world. Students of 6.933J / STS.420J research the life cycle of a major engineering project, new technology, or startup company from multiple perspectives: technical, economic, political, and cultural. Research involves interviewing inventors, reading laboratory notebooks, evaluating patents, and looking over the shoulders of engineers as they developed today's technologies. This subject is for s
The Alice Project
Alice is a free teaching tool from Carnegie Mellon University that allows programming novices to use a simple drag-and-drop interface to create 3D computer animation. The Alice Project was begun by the late Randy Pausch, a Carnegie Mellon alumnus and professor of computer science and author of The Last Lecture. The FBI, in partnership with Carnegie Mellon University's School of Computer Science, is expanding their ongoing Safe Online Surfing program (SOS) to include a national competition in wh
The Protohaus Project
Alfred University MFA student Ann Holley designed and built Protohaus, with about 150 square feet of living space, using as many recycled, reused and/or sustainable materials as possible. The house, located on AU property, is completely "off-the-grid:" powered by solar energy, with propane-powered refrigerator and stove. Holley will live in the house this academic year as both an art and environmental project.
6.041 Probabilistic Systems Analysis and Applied Probability (MIT)
Welcome to 6.041/6.431, a subject on the modeling and analysis of random phenomena and processes, including the basics of statistical inference. Nowadays, there is broad consensus that the ability to think probabilistically is a fundamental component of scientific literacy. For example: The concept of statistical significance (to be touched upon at the end of this course) is considered by the Financial Times as one of "The Ten Things Everyone Should Know About Science". A rece
7.13 Experimental Microbial Genetics (MIT)
Also referred to as the Microbial Genetics Project Lab, this is a hands-on research course designed to introduce the student to the strategies and challenges associated with microbiology research. Students take on independent and original research projects that are designed to be instructive with the goal of advancing a specific field of research in microbiology.
Private Universe Project in Mathematics: Workshop 2. Are You Convinced?
Proof making is one of the key ideas in mathematics. Looking at teachers and students grappling with the same probability problem, we see how two kinds of proofproof by cases and proof by inductionnaturally grow out of the need to justify and convince others.,Englewood, New JerseyTeachers Workshop Englewood, a town with unsatisfactory student test scores, is implementing a long-term project to improve math achievement. As part of a professional development workshop designed in part to give
4.183 Sustainable Design and Technology Research Workshop (MIT)
This workshop investigates the current state of sustainability in regards to architecture, from the level of the tectonic detail to the urban environment. Current research and case studies will be investigated, and students will propose their own solutions as part of the final project.
