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
Laser-induced Remote Sensing for Chemistry and Micro-imaging
Discusses remote sensing instrumentation utilized for rapid characterization of rocks and soils on planetary surfaces in support of explorations on Mars.
The Virtual Rocky Shore
The Virtual Rocky Shore (VRS) is an interactive computer simulation allowing the design of manipulative experiments as would be conducted on a real rocky shore. The companion website explains experimental design from the basics, through to conducting an experiment using the simulation. Further guidance on the statistical analysis (using SPSS and R) is given, along with how to write up the experiment as if it was a real scientific paper. The full website is provided here, with an external link t
INN Placement Website
This artefact outlines the creation of a new website for Innovation North students holding details of all work placements (short, long term, voluntary, paid).The Institute for Enterprise funded the project and the money helped pay a student to maintain the website for a year
TALAT Lecture 2109: LCA - From Environmental Consciousness to Design for the Future

Instruct clients in fitness activities
In this scenario the learning style preferences of three clients are to be analysed. From this analysis, techniques and strategies that are suitable for instructing each client are to be selected. The learner will need to select a number of appropriate assessment techniques which will determine how well the clients have picked up the fitness program. The assessment techniques also need to respond to the clients' learning style preferences.
Social, political, economical and environmental impacts on health
This learning object addresses the competency required to work in the context of Aboriginal history, considering the impact of social, political, economic and environmental factors on Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people.
Small Business Marketing: Financial Plan
The Financial Plan. This unit focuses on identifying the elements of a financial plan; understanding the information required to compile a financial plan; describe sources of finance; prepare a profit and loss statement; conduct break-even analysis; cash-flow projection; and develop a comprehensive financial plan. This object is supported by the text Reynolds, W, Savage, W, & Williams, A (1994) Your Own Business, (2nd Edition), Nelson, Australia. This forms a resource for Certificate III in Sma
Recruit and select staff
This learning object addresses the competency required to recruit and select staff within the framework of existing human or staffing resource plans or policies. You will learn about job analysis, creating job advertisements, establishing selection criteria, conducting job interviews, and providing staff inductions.
Use of Heuristics to Facilitate Scientific Discovery Learning in a Simulation Learning Environment i
This article describes a study into the role of heuristic support in facilitating discovery learning through simulation-based learning. The study compares the use of two such learning environments in the physics domain of collisions. In one learning environment (implicit heuristics) heuristics are only used to provide the learner with guidance derived from heuristics, without presenting the heuristics themselves; in the other (explicit heuristics) the heuristics themselves are also made explicit
