The Vitamin Village is a web-based eLearning package developed between 2001 and 2008 to incorporate vitamins A, C, D, E and K, as well as a basic introduction to antioxidants. It is mainly used in first year teaching of vitamins, but also in the 2nd and 3rd years of the 3 year BSc (Hons) Nutrition and 4 year MNutr Nutrition degrees taught within the School of Biosciences. The creation and development involved staff within Nutritional Sciences (Drs John Brameld, Zoe Daniel & Tim Parr and Profe
Beer sample - Work safely
An introduction to procedures in scientific and medical testing laboratories for preparing beer samples for examination under a microscope. Covers safety protocols, spill cleanup and waste disposal.
Prepare samples for testing
An introduction to laboratory testing required by laboratory technicians. Covers biological, chemical and physical testing samples provided by clients. It also looks at procedures carried out by lab technicians in performing tests on each samples of effluent, preparing, labelling and storage of samples. All testing laboratories use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Standard Operating Procedures (SOP).
Transfer samples aseptically - Use Aseptic Techniques
An introduction to aseptic techniques used by scientific and medical laboratory technicians to collect and test material without contamination. Covers the use of aseptic techniques to transfer sample material during laboratory tests.
Most Probable Number Test - Counting Microorganisms
An introduction to microbiological laboratory procedures for lab technicians in scientific and medical testing laboratories. Covers procedures for counting micro-organisms using the most probable number test.
Urine sample - Prepare samples for microscopic examination
An introduction to procedures in scientific and medical testing laboratories for preparing cultures from urine samples for examination under a microscope. Covers safety issues, aseptic technique and smear preparation.
Physics in architecture
Developed in 1998 by Dr John Whittle (Department of the Built Environment) using Authorware, this package contains brief interactive notes on eight areas of physics in which architects need a working knowledge. However, it is also useful to others in science, engineering and social sciences looking for an introduction to the topics concerned. These topics are: Units of measurement; Scalar and vector quantities; Newton’s laws; Mass and weight; Action and reaction; Waves; Heat, work and energy;
Levels of measurement
Aimed at statistics beginners, this learning object describes, and gives examples of, the four levels of measurement of data: nominal, ordinal, interval and ratio.
International Classification of Function, Disability and Health
This package was originally designed for undergraduates in Medicine at the University of Nottingham. It will also be useful to students in nursing, allied health professions and pharmacy. Practitioners in these fields, who are new to the ICF, will also find it a useful introduction. It describes the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF), a classification system published by the World Health Organisation to describe health status. This system is widely used
Historical skills : using archives
This resource provides a general introduction to what archives are, where they are kept, how to find relevant material, and what to expect on a visit to an archives office. A glossary and bibliography are also provided along with numerous links to relevant external resources. The scope of this unit principally reflects the archival holdings of the University of Nottingham and illustrative images of items from our collections appear throughout.
This popular maths talk gives an introduction to various different kinds of infinity, both countable and uncountable. These concepts are illustrated in a somewhat informal way using the notion of Hilbert's infinite hotel. In this talk, the hotel manager tries to fit various infinite collections of guests into the hotel. The students should learn that many apparently different types of infinity are really the same size. However, there are genuinely "more" real numbers than there are positive inte

Developed for third grade. The students will be given an introduction to tastebuds, focusing on the different types of tastebuds, what they taste, and where they are located on the tongue. They will do this by sampling four different tastes (lemon - sour, sugar - sweet, salt - salty, and tonic water - bitter) and determining which can be tasted the best in what areas of the tongue. Given a diagram that maps out the main regions of the tongue, the students will indicate which area is designated f
2.997 Direct Solar/Thermal to Electrical Energy Conversion Technologies (MIT)
This course introduces principles and technologies for converting heat into electricity via solid-state devices. The first part of the course discusses thermoelectric energy conversion and thermoelectric materials, thermionic energy conversion, and photovoltaics. The second part of the course discusses solar thermal technologies. Various solar heat collection systems will be reviewed, followed by an introduction to the principles of solar thermophotovoltaics and solar thermoelectrics. Spectral c
