Online Nonprofit Organization and Management Development Program
This nonprofit organization development program consists of 13 modules and can help you accomplish a great deal for your nonprofit -- and for you. This program can be implemented by service organizations to promptly provide a nonprofit and management development program in their locale -- this program can be adopted "as is" or modified.
Principles of Marketing
Principles of Marketing by Tanner, Raymond and Schuster teaches the experience and process of actually doing marketing - not just the vocabulary. It carries five dominant themes throughout in order to expose students to marketing in today's environment: Service dominant logic, sustainability, ethics and social responsibility, global coverage, and metrics.
Mitochondrial Control Region
Every human cell has a "second" genome, found in the cell's energy-generating organelle, the mitochondrion. In fact, each mitochondrion has several copies of its own genome, and there are several hundred to several thousand mitochondria per cell. This means that the mitochondrial (mt) genome is highly amplified. While each cell contains only two copies of a given nuclear gene (one on each of the paired chromosomes), there are thousands of copies of a given mt gene per cell. Because of this high
Methods in Science
Effective science instruction is a key component of any course of study for students in the elementary school. This course will provide a basis for-pre-service teachers to gain awareness of national, state, and local standards in science education, as well as, effective teaching strategies that will help teachers meet the various needs of all learners in the public school setting.
Herschel Infrared Experiment
Students perform a version of the 1800 experiment in which a form of radiation other than visible light was discovered by the famous astronomer Sir Frederick William Herschel.
Mapping Margery Kempe
Margery Kempe's spiritual biography is often called the first autobiography in English. A married woman who attempted to live a life devoted to Christ, Margery sought official Church recognition for her status as a spiritual woman and mystic, while continuing to live and travel in the secular world. She experienced intense emotional visionary encounters with Christ, which have at times a strikingly homely quality. Her Book, dictated by her to a scribe, records these visions as well as her travel
Does excessive exposure to violent video games cause violent behavior? Does increased gun availability cause more crime or less? Causal claims permeate everyday life and are constantly the subject of "studies" reported in the newspaper. The material in Causal and Statistical Reasoning examines the nature of causal claims and the statistical sorts of evidence used to support them. The material is contained in: approximately 20 content modules, a repository of over 100 short case studies, and a "C
Criteria for Selecting Your Mentor
Interns work directly with on-site supervisors (mentors), home-school principals, or other principals, supervisors, or agency administrators on specified objectives for the number of clock hours designated in a signed agreement. The mentor or campus supervisor approves all experiences used for the completion of objectives. At least one reading is selected to facilitate the achievement of each objective in the internship. Reflections on the experiences, the readings, and the relationship between
An Alternative to Statecraft: should diplomacy adapt to a new world environment?
The European Union is designing a new external action service as part of the changes to foreign policy proposed under the Lisbon Treaty. This lecture examines the contemporary demands on diplomatic missions. Pilar Saborio is the ambassador of Costa Rica to the UK. Georg Boomgaarden is the ambassador of Germany to the UK. Nick Mabey is chief executive of E3G Third Generation Environmentalism. Mary Martin is a research fellow at LSE's Centre for the Study of Global Governance.

Conducting Historical Research: The Case of "Oriental Cairo"
This course guides you through a variety of virtual research projects centered on Douglas Sladen's "Oriental Cairo: City of the 'Arabian Nights'" (1911). It is an introduction to some standard research techniques used by historians as well to using library resources.
Signals and Systems
This course deals with signals, systems, and transforms, from their theoretical mathematical foundations to practical implementation in circuits and computer algorithms. At the conclusion of ELEC 301, you should have a deep understanding of the mathematics and practical issues of signals in continuous and discrete time, linear time invariant systems, convolution, and Fourier transforms.
Naive Room Response Deconvolution
ELEC 301 project by William Howison, Chris Lamontagne, Bryce Luna, and David Newell. Given the output of a system and the system characteristics we can determine the input. We will determine the system characteristics of two rooms by playing an (approximate) impulse and recording the impulse response, and then we will play music into the same rooms and record the output. Using MATLAB we will deconvolve the output with the system response to determine a rough approximation of the input.
Microcontroller and Embedded Systems Laboratory
Basic introduction to microcontroller-based embedded systems development. Includes structured laboratory exercises in the following areas: assembly programming, C language programming, peripheral interfacing, interrupt management, structured programming, task scheduling, simple digital signal processing (DSP), and other related topics. This course assumes no prerequisites and is primarily intended for first and second year engineering students.

Supporting self-regulated learners for a while and what computers can contribute
This article's main claim is that to support individuals' development toward becoming self-regulated learners requires certain amounts of other-regulation, i.e. scaffolding. Starting from this assertion, we discuss 6 issues that surfaced in the 5 articles of this special issue. First, we argue that designers need good reasons for taking freedom away from the learners. Beyond practical reasons, we suggest that the reduction of freedom should more often be warranted in theoretical considerations.
Internal and external collaboration scripts in web-based science learning at schools
Collaboration scripts can help learners to engage in argumentation and knowledge acquisition. However, they might have differential effects for learners holding differently structured knowledge (internal scripts) on argumentation. We investigated how external scripts interact with learners internal scripts concerning collaborative argumentation. 98 students from two secondary schools participated. Two versions of an external collaboration script (high vs. low structured) supporting argumentati
Epistemic cooperation scripts in online learning environments: Fostering learning by reducing uncert
Using online learning environments in higher education offers innovative possibilities to support collaborative learning. However, online learning creates new kinds of problems for participants who have not previously worked with each other. One of these problems is uncertainty which occurs when participants do not know each other. According to the uncertainty reduction theory, low uncertainty level increases the amount of discourse and decreases the amount of information seeking. Therefore, unc
Lutilisation dun arbre des tâches pour concevoir et analyser des situations dapprentissage :
Afin de prendre en compte les difficultés que les élèves ont pour donner du sens aux activités expérimentales, ce qui leur fait perdre de vue lobjectif initial du T.P. et les connaissances visées, nous proposons de leur faire concevoir le protocole des expériences. À travers trois exemples de situations de T.P. mises au point et expérimentées dans des classes de Terminale S, nous montrons comment la structuration du protocole expérimental dans un arbre de tâche, permet d'analyser e
Six Years of Knowledge Networking in Learning Sciences and Technologies
This report presents a series of in-depth reflections about the work of the Center for Innovative Learning Technologies (CILT) from 1997 until 2004. Each member of the CILT team (Principal investigator, postdoctoral scholar, project coordinator and manager) provided their personal reflections on what they, and all of us as a group, have learned from the attempt to stimulate the development and implementation of important, technology-enabled solutions to critical problems in K-14 STEM learning in
