Learning aware environement: a Laboratorium of epidemiological studies
One challenge of the Laboratorium is to have the capacity to recognize and capture relevant events from observing the human activity, the ability to understand the learning needs and then to provide the adequate feedback in whatever form. Another challenge is the mapping of inaccessible phenomena into the sensible and temporal space of the classroom. Our design combines gaming situations and ambient technologies in the context of learning bio-statistics. This paper presents a method and a formal
USGS Biological Resources: National Activities
The mission of the United States Geological Survey's Biological Resources Discipline involves working with others to provide the scientific understanding and technologies needed to support the sound management and conservation of our Nation's biological resources. This website contains a comprehensive listing of biological research taking place within the USGS biology branch. This portal provides access to the National Bird Banding Project, the National Park Service flora and fauna database, the

Advanced semiconductor devices as a new source of energy for the 21st century, which deliver electricity directly from sunlight. The suitable semiconductor materials, device physics, and fabrication technologies for solar cells are presented. The guidelines for design of a complete solar cell system for household application are explained. The cost aspects, market development, and the application areas of solar cells are presented. Study Goals: Students learn about renewable energy sources, name
Building Biographies: A Research Unit
Using handheld technology, students will research and report on a famous person. Bibliographic data and notes will be taken using Memo Pad, information will be organized in PiCo Map, reports presented through Palm eBook format, and a follow-up quiz for classmates will be developed in Quizzler. Within the project, students will learn the fundamental principles involved in completing a research project. This is designed as an integrated unit to be taught by the classroom teacher and media speciali
Science: from the lab to Second Life and across the world
We talk to Sue Stocklmayer from the Australian National University about the joys and pitfalls of international science communication; and to Rough Science's Dr Jonathan Hare about his research into Buckmeinsterfullerene. We also return to the SCHOME project (from Programme 5) and meet the students involved - in the real world! The interviews are recorded by OU staff and the programme is hosted by Dr Mike Bullivant, also from the OU/BBC television series Rough Science.
Earth Science Rocks!
In this earth science themed programme, Dr Sarah Davies delve into a fantastic project - Enabling Remote Activity - which helps mobility-impaired students take part in field work. Wes Fraser also chats with Dr Mark Brandon about his fascinating research in the Antarctic. Finally, we eavesdrop on a conversation between two OU researchers - Dr Will Gosling and Dr Palavi Anand about how finding out about the past may help us to understand climate change in the future. The interviews are recorded by
aluMATTER: Strengthening Mechanisms in Aluminium
Pure, untreated aluminium is a soft metal with insufficient strength for most engineering applications. In order to take advantage of its low density, aluminium has to be strengthened by one or more mechanisms. These are considered in detail in this selection of interactive Flash movies from the award-winning aluMATTER website available to download.
aluMATTER: Crystallographic Texture in Aluminium
This selection of interactive Flash movies from the award-winning aluMATTER website available to download presents method of representing, or characterising crystallographic textures. It helps to understand how crystallographic textures are formed and how they effect properties in aluminium alloys. Crystallographic texture is necessarily very complex as it describes the orientations in 3D space of thousands or millions of individual grains.
Genetic Analysis - Question Sets
The Genetic Analysis SBLi is a set of scenarios designed to support an undergraduate course in Genetics. In the scenarios the student plays the role of a genetics researcher, and performs simulated experiments to reinforce concepts taught in lectures. This project is part of the the Higher Education Academy's UK Centre for Bioscience Open Educational Resources programme. This package contains question sets extracted from the Genetic Analysis Scenarios so that these can be easily used seperately.
The graduation specialisation 'Technology in Sustainable Development' was launched in September 2000. It fits into all Msc curricula at TU Delft. The specialisation is open to all TU Delft students who completed their Bsc program. The graduation specialisation covers both broader and deeper knowledge regarding Sustainable Development (SD) and technology. Sufficient depth is achieved by the demand that SD has to be a core issue in the graduation project. Within each department, a so-called ‘SD
Engineering and Policy Analysis
In contemporary society, many of the most vexing issues we face cannot be solved by technology alone. Engineering excellence must be coupled with insight into societal needs and the mastery of project and process management tools. At the intersection of technology and public policy TU Delft's MSc Programme in Engineering and Policy Analysis (EPA) is an international interdisciplinary programme, designed to provide its graduates with a unique combination of technical, analytical and management
Oyez. Oyez. Oyez.: Supreme Court Resource
The Oyez Project is a multimedia archive devoted to the Supreme Court of the United States and its work. It aims to be a complete and authoritative source for all audio recorded in the Court since the installation of a recording system in October 1955. The Project also provides authoritative information on all justices and offers a virtual reality 'tour' of portions of the Supreme Court building, including the chambers of some of the justices.

Paul Revere Williams : American architect : a man and his work
The Paul Revere Williams website is designed to provide introductory material about African-American architect Paul R. Williams (1894-1980), who was the first African American member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the first to become a Fellow (FAIA). The project is a collaboration between AIA and the University of Memphis. The website provides information about the architect and a large image gallery, which can be browsed by decade or category. The 'resources' section of the w
Generative CAD Systems
In the new millennium, Computer Aided Design has emerged as the most potent technological innovation in design. As BIM promises to integrate design tasks vertically and horizontally through graceful data exchange, new frontiers appear to researchers and practitioners as potential watershed events of the next decade. Generative approaches, a venerable engagement of computational design, is emerging as one of these. The proceedings of the Generative CAD Symposium held at Carnegie Mellon University
