Changing the Education Culture through Technology
Technology has a potentially rich, but largely unrealised, role in teaching and learning. This role is defined variously by what the teacher has available, has had time to learn, or can find an appropriate use for, and by what students have access to, are familiar with, and are willing to use. In all of these ways, technology usually plays an adjunct role to others, more traditional modalities for teaching and learning, including lecture, laboratory, library, textbook, tutorial, and practicum.
Lecture 16 - 11/18/2010
Introducing QCDA (Qualifications and Curriculum Development Agency)
The QCDA aims to be at the heart of England’s education system, building on the work of their predecessor, the QCA. Their job will be to develop the curriculum, improve and deliver assessments, and review and reform qualifications. The short video explains more about their work.
Biochemical Analysis of Vertebrate Skeletal Systems
This exercise was developed to look at the structure-function relationship in the skeletal system as it explores motion and force on evolution of the system.
Development of an Inexpensive Remote Operating Vehicle (ROV), Mountain Lake Virginia
This workshop details the physical description and use of a small ROV submarine, built in 2004 to explore and video bottom features at Mountain Lake, Giles County, Virginia. This project represents an ongoing co-operative effort between the Wilderness Conservancy at Mountain Lake, Roanoke College and Virginia Polytechnic Institute as academic partners. Mountain Lake is the only natural lake in the southern Appalachian Highlands. It is a low nutrient, high altitude, sub-alpine lake and associated
Webquest: The Split Brain
The brain is made up of two halves, the hemispheres. These hemispheres are united to one another through a system consisting of millions of nerve fibers. Therefore, each hemisphere is continually informed about what is happening in the other. What happens if the connection is broken?
6.2 Problems with Resemblance
Part 6.2. Explores Berkeley's and Locke's arguments concerning the resemblance of qualities and objects; that the perceived qualities of objects exist only in the mind or whether secondary qualities are intrinsically part of the object.
1.2 What are ICTs? Before we go any further, it is useful to have a working understanding of the term 'ICT'. What exactly do we mean by 'information and communication technologies'? This can be very difficult to define and explain, but here is a simple definition. Information and communication technologies (ICTs) are the technologies used in the conveying, manipulation and storage of data by electronic means. Let us give you some examples. In a landline telephone system, messages are conveyed

PLoS ONE will be a high-volume, efficient and economical system for the publication of peer-reviewed research in all areas of science and medicine. It will provide a unique forum for community dialogue using the full potential of the web to accelerate scientific progress.
Building a Business: Understanding Financial Control (old)
The seventh in the 2009/10 Building a Business lecture series. David MacKinlay talks about the importance of a good accounting system for entrepreneurs and businesses. Building a Business is a nine week evening lecture course of basic business skills. The course covers good business practice with a focus on science entrepreneurship. It is designed around technological enterprise but most course material is relevant to general business practice.
Information and Communication Technology
This course traces the birth of information technology and briefly describes the concepts by linking it to the development of computers beginning with the first generation of computers. It introduces the learner to the basic working processes of a computer. It demonstrates how the memory and the processor coordinate activities based on instructions received from input devices or computer programs stored on the disk drive. This course discusses the different computer components and helps the lear
Leadership and Disruptive Technologies - Thomas Prescott (Align Technology)
Thomas Prescott, CEO of medical device manufacturer Align Technology, discusses disruptive product innovation and leadership in the medical device industry. Prescott shares the company's story, including insights on the launch of their signature product, the Invisalign orthodontic system. He also discusses operational trends and the need for sound analysis of financing, product execution, and business development tactics.
System Identification and Parameter Estimation
This course is about non-parametric system identification based on estimators of spectral densities and its application to open-loop and closed-loop systems. Furthermore parameter estimation for linear and non-linear systems plays an important role.
Combining Documents into a Single PDF
This Acrobat tutorial shows you how to combine many documents into single PDF file called a binder. Controlling the combining settings and reusing them for fast merging are demonstrated and compared to PDF Portfolios.
"All We Are Seeking Here Is Equal Opportunity": The American G.I. Forum Desegregates a Texas Communi
With the annexation of Texas in 1848 at the end of the Mexican-American War, Tejanos--Texans of Mexican descent--lost property rights and political power in a society dominated by Anglos. Through discriminatory practices and violent force, Tejanos were kept at the bottom of the new political and socio-cultural order. From 1900-1930, as an influx of immigrants from Mexico came north to meet a growing demand for cheap labor in the developing commercial agriculture industries, Tejanos experienced c
Getting Started with Unit Testing Part 2 | Visual Studio Toolbox This is another in Robert's Getting Started series, where he provides an introduction to a topic that everyone knows about but not everyone is actually doing (or doing enough of). In part 1 of this 3 part series, Robert showed how to get started with unit testing in Visual Studio. In this episode, he shows how to write unit tests that test the UI interactions in a XAML application.

PICT?RICA O CIENT?FICA? LA ACTIVIDAD DE GENERACI?N DE IM?GENES SINT?TICAS EN EL CONTEXTO DE ENSE?ANZ
This work is restricted to the field of Graphics Representation in Architecture, analyzing the use of illumination models which are present at the software usually used for the development of images to describe the architectural objects. The differences between the real scene and the equivalences structured into the world of computer graphics related to the illumination models and light, are specially specified. This work analyses the categories of architectural problems associated to each of th
Mini project : dual processor computation
This is a Mini Project about dual processor computation from the 2009/10 BEng in Digital Systems and Computer Engineering (course number 2ELE0065) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes. The objectives of this module are to demonstrate, within an embedded development environment: * Processor – to – processor communication * Multiple processors to perform one computation task using parallel processing
