Introduction to Electronic Government
This course is an introduction to electronic government (e-government). Our basic premise that the governments' use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is not an end in itself, certainly not a technical exercise, but a tool to achieve better government. e-Government includes all measures to further this goal with the combination of ICT and the necessary organisational improvement. This definition is the point of departure for the rest of the course that covers: reasons to embrace e
Twitter in Plain English
A short introduction to the micro-blogging service Twitter.
Introduction to Petrography
This Introduction to Petrography homepage from the University of Houston contains a variety of instructional materials. Topics covered include tectonics, the rock cycle, mineralogy, sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic petrology, classification, phase diagrams, and magmatic differentiation. There are also links to 5 virtual field trips; Central hill country of Texas, Mohawk Valley field trip, virtual climb Stromboli, Big Bend, and Ring Mountain. There are comprehensive lecture notes, self quizz
Continents and Currents
Continents and Currents beautifully demonstrates how the position of continents affects the movements of ocean currents. It serves as an engaging introduction for discussions of plate tectonics, currents, climate, and even Earth history.
Tools for bridging the cultures of everyday and scientific thinking
A perspective about science education is developed which has implications for the design of interactive learning technologies. Current philosophical work concerning the interpretative nature of scientific inquiry is reviewed as a context for discussing the situation of the child in developing scientific understanding. This view of learning ernphasizes the relationships among informal understanding, conceptual change, and enculturation into modes of scientific discourse. A prototype software syst

LSE Asia Forum - 08:00 - 09:45 (English) - Welcome & Introduction | Keynote Speech | Address by His
The fifth LSE Asia Forum took place in Beijing on 25-26 March 2010 with the support of the China Institute of International Studies (CIIS). The Forum addressed a wide range of issues of deep interest to policymakers and wider society, under a general theme relating to the recent challenges and changes that have affected the global economy. A key focus of the Forum was on the role of China in tackling the recent challenges, and what lessons can be learnt for the future. This session comprises the
Introduction to Project Management
This module is the introduction to the University Extension online course, Introduction to Project Management. Project management has been proven to be the most effective method of delivering products within cost, schedule, and resource constraints. This intensive and hands-on course gives you the skills to ensure your projects are completed on time and on budget while giving the user the product they expect. You will gain a strong working knowledge of the basics of project management and be abl
CSET Science Subtest II: Ecology
The University of California, Irvine Extension, supported by generous grants from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and The Boeing Company, is developing online courses to prepare science and mathematics teachers for the California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET). This module is part of the preparation for CSET Science Subtest II. The Ecology module includes: Introduction to Ecology, Energy Flow in an Ecosystem, Biogeochemical Cycles in Ecosystems, Abiotic and Biotic Factors in a
18.712 Introduction to Representation Theory (MIT)
The goal of this course is to give an undergraduate-level introduction to representation theory (of groups, Lie algebras, and associative algebras). Representation theory is an area of mathematics which, roughly speaking, studies symmetry in linear spaces.

Star Library: What is the Significance of a Kiss?
This article describes an interactive activity illustrating general properties of hypothesis testing and hypothesis tests for proportions. Students generate, collect, and analyze data. Through simulation, students explore hypothesis testing concepts. Concepts illustrated are: interpretation of p-values, type I error rate, type II error rate, power, and the relationship between type I and type II error rates and power. This activity is appropriate for use in an introductory college or high school
Star Library: An Unusual Episode
Dawson (1995) presented a data set giving a population at risk and fatalities for an “unusual episode” (the sinking of the ocean liner Titanic) and discussed the use of the data set in a first statistics course as an elementary exercise in statistical thinking, the goal being to deduce the origin of the data. Simonoff (1997) discussed the use of this data set in a second statistics course to illustrate logistic regression. Moore (2000) used an abbreviated form of the data set in a chapter ex
How to Suck an Egg Into a Bottle
This amazing experiment demonstrates how atmospheric pressure will push an egg into a bottle. A great science experiment for children.
Sampling from a Real Estate Database
This material is a detailed exercise for students in introductory statistics. Students are asked to collect a random sample of data from a real estate website; conduct descriptive statistics (including confidence intervals); and write a report summarizing their findings.

ESD.33 Systems Engineering (MIT)
Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary approach and means to enable the realization of successful systems. It focuses on defining customer needs and required functionality early in the development cycle, documenting requirements, then proceeding with design synthesis and reliability improvement while considering the complete problem including operations, performance, test, manufacturing, cost, and schedule. This course emphasizes the links of systems engineering to fundamentals of decision
How to Make Fizzy Bath Bombs
This video gives you step by step directions for making bath bombs using baking soil, oil, and citric acid. The instructor also gives the science explanation behind the craft. You are actually mixing an acid and a base and making a paste ball. They will not actually react with each other until they are dropped in a solution (like water in the bathtub.) This instructor is making a "holiday gift" but the experiement could be used any time of the year. Run time 05:50.
The Rhubarb Triangle
This is an interactive learning resource book targeted at families who want to learn together and improve their basic English and maths abilities.
