This site dissects a sheep brain to show us the anatomy of memory. See works of an artist who paints entirely from memory. (Compare his paintings to photos of places.) Play interactive games that test your memory -- learn ways to improve it. Discover why some things are easier to remember than others (droodles game). Which facial features help us remember a face? Which image of the penny is correct? Try a mnemonic device called elaborative encoding.

Course 3: Assessment Practices
In this course, you'll explore your own cultural competence in the classroom; apply multiculturalism to problem-solving; receive training on service learning; and discuss how to create and sustain connections with classrooms around the world.
Course 2: New Teaching Methods
In this course, teachers be introduced to thematic learning and cooperative learning techniques. Teachers will have a chance to develop lesson plans with these ideas in mind. You are given practical tools for classroom management and ways in which you can guide students to think about their own process of learning. Portions of this course have been reproduced from the encyclopedia of informal education: www.infed.org
Course 1: Education for the New Millennium
The first course in a five-course series updating teacher skills and mastery, the purpose of which is to enhance the teaching profession and build teacher mentors on a local level. In Course 1, In this course, you'll be introduced to educational theories and approaches to learning and how to apply them to your classroom; aspects of effective teaching; and contemporary issues in education. The material reflects a pattern of inclusive, discovery-oriented, culturally-attuned, and globally-aware tea
Waves and Optics
Fundamentals of oscillations and waves and properties of electromagnetic waves. Basic principles of geometric optics, interference and diffraction, including Fourier methods.
Seeing Using Sound
Elec 301 Project - Fall 2005. Seeing using Sound transforms images in to sound to aid blind people.
Reading Music: Common Notation
This course may be used to introduce or reinforce music-reading skills for someone just learning to play an instrument, or the individual lessons can be used to expand on basic music-reading […]
Pathway To Dreams
This course is a self paced question oriented path to help you as an artist determine your goals, direction and your voice.
Model Checking Concurrent Programs
Introduction to the use of Promela and SPIN as a model-checker for verifying concurrent programs. The underlying transition system is used as a model for the interpretation of Linear Temporal Logic (LTL) formulas.
Media Processing in Processing
A course on fundamentals of image/sound processing and graphic programming explained by means of the free language and environment Processing.
Investigation of Delay and Sum Beamforming Using a Two-Dimensional Array
Our final project for ELEC 301, Fall 2005. We investigated the delay and sum method of array beamforming, specifically through the analysis in Labview of data drawn from a two-dimensional eight microphone perimeter array.
In this course, you'll be introduced to educational theories and approaches to learning and how to apply them to your classroom; aspects of effective teaching; and contemporary issues in education. The material reflects a pattern of inclusive, discovery-oriented, culturally-attuned, and globally-aware teaching.
Fundamentals of Digital Signal Processing Lab
The purpose of this lab is to familiarize students with the DSP development workstation in the signal processing lab by examining sampling, analysis, and reconstruction of continuous-time signals. Specifically, we will first look at sampling/reconstruction of continuous-time signals. We will then examine time- and frequency-domain displays. Finally, we will examine the importance of sampling frequency and its effects on aliasing.
Frequency and Music
An overview of frequency, harmonic (Fourier) series, and their relationship to music.
Filtering and Analysis of Heart Rhythms
This course outlines the steps in a Elec 301 project for Fall 2005. The projects takes in heart rhythms and analyzes them. Group Members: Grant Heberton, Robert McArthur, Anish Patel, and Erick Tournier.
Elec 301 - Steganography - What's In Your Picture?
This course covers the science of data hiding, known as steganography. It describes two new methods we have added to the field and how to detect them.
The ECDL (European Computer Driving Licence) is one of the most popular and respected ICT courses in the world www.ecdl.co.uk. I have written this course specifically for use with my secondary school class using Windows and MS Word. Certified test centres exist around the world.
