21L.705 Major Authors: America's Literary Scientists (MIT)
Global exploration in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries radically changed Western science, orienting philosophies of natural history to more focused fields like comparative anatomy, botany, and geology. In the United States, European scientific advances and home-grown ventures like the Wilkes Exploring Expedition to Antarctica and the Pacific inspired new endeavors in cartography, ethnography, zoology, and evolutionary theory, replacing rigid models of thought and classification with more
15.768 Management of Services: Concepts, Design, and Delivery (MIT)
15.768 Management of Services: Concepts, Design, and Delivery explores the use of operations tools and perspectives in the service sector, including both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. The course builds on conceptual frameworks and cases from a wide range of service operations, selected from health care, hospitality, internet services, supply chain, transportation, retailing, food service, entertainment, financial services, humanitarian services, government services, and others.
Article :: An Introduction to 3D in Flash
One of the main reasons that the Flash platform has remained as popular as it has for so long is that Flash has continuously evolved to meet the demands of its audience. In the first of a series of articles on using 3D in Flash applications, Chris Florio, contributor to ActionScript 3.0 for Flash Professional CS5 Classroom in a Book, shows how to use 3D features (and limitations) that currently exist in Flash Professional CS5 and in Flash Player 10 using both the Flash interface and Act

Games Technologies for Learning
The Games Technologies for Learning report explores the ways in which games technologies can be used to enhance teaching and learning, and provides advice for schools and colleges wishing to introduce...
This class lectures as models of intelligent behaviors of human, problem-solving by search in state space, playing strategy in games, branch-and-bound method, supervised, unsupervised and reinforcement learning in neural networks.
On Modern University & University Students A
Issues regarding modern university and university students are issues close to home, which you students cannot ignore as mere knowledge or general issues. In this course, we expect you to consider these issues with historical knowledge.
"Information and the Society" is an essential subject in order to acquire a teaching certificate of high school. This lecture is going to interpret the connection between technology of information and society. Ｔhe whole lecture is divided into three parts. The first part is about the social communication of information contents (data, web information and image, etc.). The second part is about the development of electronic organizations (team, market and community) which enable using informatio
This course picks up the historical process leading to statistical mechanics, which is an important branch of modern physics. The lecture must also be very interesting even for the students who do not necessarily need statistical mechanics in their major but want to enjoy a part of essence of modern physics.
This course is for the students who major public health. The lecture concerning epidemiology and clinical studies will be held in this course.
Instrumentation and Measurement for Biological Objects
Students can learn not only natural phenomena and rules in plants and animals but also measurement devices for various uncertain shaped objects in this course. This unique course gives both lectures and practice using PC.
Cleaning Up with Decomposers
Students investigate decomposers and the role of decomposers in maintaining the flow of nutrients in an environment. Students also learn how engineers use decomposers to help clean up wastes in a process known as bioremediation. This lesson concludes a series of six lessons in which students use their growing understanding of various environments and the engineering design process, to design and create their own model biodome ecosystems.
How teams work
This unit provides an introduction to working in virtual project teams by explaining terms and concepts related to teams and to projects. The complexity of the interaction of people and technology is highlighted.
Rock Deformation Gallery
This gallery of online resources is from the Museum's Seminars on Science, a series of distance-learning courses designed to help educators meet the new national science standards. The Rock Deformation Gallery, part of the Earth: Inside and Out seminar, features: Illustrations from the Hall of Planet Earth, which has two informative overviews - Deformed Rocks and Deforming Rocks in the Laboratory: Deformed Marble Cylinders;Deformed Conglomerate in the Hall of Planet Earth, which has three annota
Teaching Western Blots with T antigen and p53
Students perform Western blots with polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of detergent extracts of SV40-transformed cell lines grown in monolayer culture. The gels are blotted onto nitrocellulose and treated with a monoclonal antibody against SV40 T antigen or against the tumor suppressor p53. Blots are then treated with a secondary antibody (anti-mouse IgG conjugated to horseradish peroxidase), and exposed to revealing chemicals and x-ray film. I give one application: induction of p53 by ultraviol
