Local Area Network Communications Media
This module will enable students to correctly use standard terminology to describe the main topologies, carrier technologies and hardware and software components used in data communication networks, including the characteristics of such devices and software.
Communicate in the workplace
This learning object addresses the competency required to identify the various communication systems used in the workplace and how to use them correctly. You will see how good communication contributes to a pleasant work environment, enhances safety and improves the standard of work achieved. You will also learn how to work in a team and follow correct communication procedures in an emergency situation.

Monitor process operations
This learning object is about consistently meeting production standards when using processing equipment. It looks at following standard operating procedures (SOPs), keeping equipment operating within specifications and recognising when a process is not working properly and taking action to fix it.
Manipulate stock culture environment
This unit covers a broad spectrum of issues related to manipulating stock culture environments in the aquaculture industry. Activity 1 covers the selecting of equipment, checking that it is functioning, recognising problems or malfunctions and if necessary repairing equipment. Also covers calibrating equipment to manufacturer's guidelines. Activity 2 covers emergency/contingency plans. It guides the student through an emergency and looks at solutions and crisis management
This unit covers the correct procedures for harvesting stock in the aquaculture industry. Activity 1 focuses on what needs to be done to prepare for harvesting. Includes checking the harvesting schedule, weather forecasts, pond conditions and conditions that affect harvesting. Also includes choosing appropriate harvesting equipment and protective clothing for harvesting. Activity 2 covers monitoring stock behaviour and reporting non-standard behaviour to the supervisor. U
Monitor Stock and Environmental Conditions
This unit covers the knowledge and processes involved in monitoring stock health in the aquaculture industry. Activity 1 gives an introduction to water quality factors such as dissolved oxygen levels, pH, hardness, alkalinity, water temperature and salinity, and how these affect stock and other water quality factors. Activity 2 covers the location to take a water sample, methods of taking a water sample, sending it for analysis and interpreting results of water analysis.

Selecting columns and beams : presentation transcript
This is a presentation about selecting columns and beams (HNC In Engineering – Mechanical Science Edexcel HN Unit: Engineering Science (NQF L4)). The key terminology and calculations are explored by use of a simple example. Extracts of column tables are used to extract key variables. The tables used are extracted from standard construction engineering data sheets. This open educational resource was released through the Higher Education Academy Engineering Subject Centre Open Engineering Res
Macaulay’s method and poisson’s ratio : document transcript
This is a document transcript for Macaulay’s Method & Poisson’s Ratio (Edexcel HN unit – Mechanical Principles (NQF L4)). It examines a method of analysing the bending moment and shear force distribution along a uniformly loaded, simply supported beam. The method used is Macaulay’s and the stages involved in this method are described in detail. The method also determines the position of the maximum bending moment, the slope and deflection at this point. Poisson’s ratio is the ratio bet
Molecular reaction dynamics
This package, written in 1998, includes interactive questions and demonstrations on the dynamics of chemical reactions. The aim is to show the effect of the potential energy surface, on reaction rates. It is intended for third or fourth year undergraduates in Chemistry.

Numbers, Symmetries and Groups
This module aims to provide an introduction to axiomatic reasoning in mathematics, particularly in relation to the perspective adopted by modern algebra. Properties of the standard number systems will be developed. The abstract definition of a group will be motivated by a number of concrete examples. Standard results in the theory of groups will be proved rigorously. Applications of group theory in geometry will be stressed.
Interdisciplinary Science Near Space Student Document
Near Space is an introduction to some of the scientific concepts of the global climate system, and to the concept of anthropogenic climate change. In this module we will look at physical, chemical and biological influences on the climate.
Interdisciplinary Science Evolution Student Document
Evolution by Natural Selection is the fundamental theorem of the biosciences, and it is a concept which is increasingly applied to other areas including computing, economics and statistics. This module aims to introduce the fundamental concept of evolution by selective adaptation and then to analyse an in-depth example of evolutionary change.
