Jeremy Siegel: 'The Market Will Stage Another Recovery'
Now that it's clear the recession will not turn into a depression, stocks are poised for a recovery, says Wharton finance professor Jeremy J. Siegel. In an interview with Knowledge@Wharton, he said last week's market decline in response to rising commodity prices -- especially for energy -- and fear of the ever-growing federal deficit was no more than a short-term setback.

Editing files and Emacs
This emacs lecture is given as part of the course G51UST, Unix Software Tools. The course gives an introduction to the Unix operating system. It teaches students how to use the Command Line Interface that is part of Unix and also teaches them how to write shell, sed and awk. In doing so the course covers the use of editors such as Emacs and vi with which the students can write their scripts. It is presented in 3 formats: * Screencast (video of the lecturer and presentation slides) * Au
Dog examination techniques
This presentation has been developed to introduce veterinary students to the process of carrying out a systematic physical examination in canine patients. It is designed to act as an introduction to these processes and procedures only, giving the students a framework from which to work as they develop and refine these skills throughout the veterinary course. Physical examination is a key skill which will be used throughout a veterinary surgeon's career and is a key determinant in selecting diag

An introduction to the trigonometric functions of sine, cosine, and tangent. In an easy conversational tone, the instructor uses the computer screen as his 'blackboard' and different colors to emphasis his points. For high school students.
Le télé-apprentissage et le développement de compétences
Cette étude vise à dresser un portrait général de l'état actuel du télé-apprentissage et du développement des compétences au sein des entreprises. Le télé-apprentissage semble jouer un rôle stratégique dans les contextes de la "nouvelle économie", des "organisations apprenantes" et du "nouveau paradigme pédagogique".,Note de recherche No 2002-2, Télé-université, Université du Québec

Extended architecture of knowledge management system with Web 2.0 technologies
Knowledge management systems (KMS) become increasingly important in periods of crises and economic slowdown, as many organizations are forced to lay off people, to reduce research and ICT budgets, to restructure departments and to optimize their costs. Subsequently, organizational knowledge assets, and mainly the existing tacit knowledge are threatened. This raises the importance of technologies that could assist organizational efforts to capture the existing knowledge and to mobilize it in orde
Analysis of a selection of educational ICT systems for mathematics
The deliverable describes a grid that has been designed to study ILEs (Iteractive Learning Environments) in arithmetic and algebra, a process for choosing 6 ILEs to be studied and the result of the studies. The studied ILES are: ActiveMath, AnimalWatch, Cognitive Tutor, Math-Teacher Plus, MatXpert, Ms. Lindquist.,deliverable D20.5.1 from ERT Telma in the NoE Kaleidscope
Participatory design in open education: a workshop model for developing a pattern language
Technologically enhanced learning environments raise complex challenges for their designers, developers and users. Design patterns and pattern languages have recently emerged as a potential framework for addressing some of these challenges. However, the uptake of design patterns has been slow outside of the computer science community. We argue that this is largely a consequence of a weak positioning of pattern languages, as a form of delivering expert knowledge to layperson, and suggest an alter
Student-Centered Support Systems to Sustain Logo-Like Learning
Conventional wisdom attributes the lack of effective technology use in classrooms to a shortage of professional development or poorly run professional development. At the same time, logo-like learning environments require teachers to develop more expertise not only in technology but also in pedagogy. This paper proposes that the perceived lack of technology professional development is a myth and that traditional professional development is ill-suited to teaching teachers how to create logo-like
Patchworking as a Metaphor for Learning
Understanding youth, learning and technology
On basis of a close empirical examination of a Danish team of 'Power Users' and their work on a self-chosen learning challenge this thesis argues how we can theoretically understand, analyse and methodologically approach learning processes through the metaphorical lens of patchworking. The metaphor of patchworking highlights how learning processes can be seen as processes of stitching and weaving together different patches and pieces into something new. The patches and pieces may not
Open source information society from beginners to advanced in the Hungarian education - The poss
These days, special emphasis has been put on the importance of the ICT competencies in the teacher training. The most effective way of developing these competences is to integrate well the proper technologies into education. In our Institutions we have used the Moodle Learning Management System for years. This presentation points out the potentialities of Moodle including other open source and web based learning applications.
The methodical approach to e-portfolio content formation
The paper develops a methodical approach to e-portfolio content formation. It includes several positions: application e-portfolio for different users category; substantiation of criteria for e-portfolio formations; design of curriculum and materials structure, which adequate to criteria set; developing complex project for realizing practical competences.
Partners in Learning in Australian Schools
Elevating teachers Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) skills to integrate technology into the curriculum is of crucial importance. It helps educators align technology with students learning goals, and to more actively engage students in the learning process. Charles Sturt University (CSU) has developed a Graduate Certificate course aimed at enhancing the ICT skills of teachers for this purpose. A substantial part of the program is based on the Microsoft Partners in Learning (Pi
Web-based course design on the basis of eduWeaver and advancements
EduWeaver is a courseware tool that should enable instructors to create digital learning objects, which are conform to didactical standards, and to eventually combine them to a whole course. The course structure of course models, which were designed in eduWeaver, is hierarchically classified into four different layers. Via the export functionality in eduWeaver that relies on current standards, the course can be used in diverse learning management systems or within another environment as e.g. HTM
