This topic is introduced by a brief description of the functions of the lymphatic system. A description of the primary and secondary lymphoid organs and their locations. An interactive feature illustrating both primary and secondary organs.
Physiology of the respiratory system
This topic begins with a good introduction to the respiratory system and how it can be categorised (e.g. structurally or functionally). A diagram illustrates the relative pressure differences of the alveoli and atmospheric air. A description of gaseous exchange is also given.
Kidneys and the urinary system
This topic begins with a diagram showing the position of the kidneys in relation to the other surrounding organs. The organs of the urinary system are detailed. Organs associated with the male and female bladder are mentioned and a diagram is included for each system.
Upper respiratory system
This topic begins by categorising the respiratory system into the upper and lower parts. Each part is further described. Diagrams illustrating the external and internal nose are included. The nasal cavity is described as being divided into two parts and the components of each part (the roof, floor and the lateral and medial wall) is described. The topic concludes with a diagram and description of the tracheobronchial tree.
This topic starts with a description of the main functions of bone (e.g. surface for attachment). Bone composition and endochondral ossification is described and a diagram showing the stages is given. The different types of bones (e.g. short, flat) and the structure of long bones are detailed further. Diagrams showing the different regions of the spine are included. Bone modelling and remodelling are described.
What Is a Number System?
Understand the nature of the real number system, the elements and
operations that make up the system, and some of the rules that govern the operations. Examine a finite number system that follows some (but not all) of the same rules, and then compare this system to the real number system. Use a number line to classify the numbers we use, and examine how the numbers and operations relate to one another.
The Metric System
Learn about the relationships between units in the metric system and
how to represent quantities using different units. Estimate and measure
quantities of length, mass, and capacity, and solve measurement
Using still images, this is a brief overview of the musculoskeletal system (02:40).

7.340 Learning and Memory: Activity-Controlled Gene Expression in the Nervous System (MIT)
The mammalian brain easily outperforms any computer. It adapts and changes constantly. Most importantly, the brain enables us to continuously learn and remember. What are the molecular mechanisms that lead to learning and memory? What are the cellular roles that activity-regulated gene products play to implement changes in the brain?How do nerve cells, their connections (synapses), and brain circuits change over time to store information? We will discuss the molecular mechanisms of neuronal plas

Joan Casanovas: The apprenticeship system in Cuba 1839-1870s
Joan Casanovas of the Univ. Rovira i Virgili, Tarragona, gives this public lecture entitled 'The apprenticeship system in Cuba 1839-1870s' at The Australian National University.
Designing an Earth System Course
This Starting Point module describes the process of putting together a course in Earth System Science course. Users will find information on what an ESS course is, why this approach is useful and how to actually create the class. This module supports faculty efforts to structure Earth system science ...
Earth System Science in a Nutshell
This Starting Point module describes what Earth System Science is and why it is useful to employ the Earth System Science perspective in teaching the geosciences. There is information about the different spheres in the system and how they interact. The module also provides links to relevant learning ...
ࡁn introduction to our solar system: the planets, our Sun and our Moon. Students begin by learning the history and engineering of space travel. They make simple rockets to acquire a basic understanding Newton's third law of motion. They explore energy transfer concepts and use renewable solar energy for cooking. They see how engineers design tools, equipment and spacecraft to go where it is too far and too dangerous for humans. They explore the Earth's water cycle, and gravity as applied to or
Review of Cat Digestive System
Professor review of organs of the digestive system of a dissected cat. This would make a great review for students before a lab practical. 10:00 min. Color video with sound. Run time 10:00.
HST.730 Molecular Biology for the Auditory System (MIT)
An introductory course in the molecular biology of the auditory system. First half focuses on human genetics and molecular biology, covering fundamentals of pedigree analysis, linkage analysis, molecular cloning, and gene analysis as well as ethical/legal issues, all in the context of an auditory disorder. Second half emphasizes molecular approaches to function and dysfunction of the cochlea, and is based on readings and discussion of research literature.
16.881 Robust System Design (MIT)
This course was created for the "product development" track of MIT's System Design and Management Program (SDM) in conjunction with the Center for Innovation in Product Development. After taking this course, a student should be able to: Formulate measures of performance of a system or quality characteristics. These quality characteristics are to be made robust to noise affecting the system. Sythesize and select design concepts for robustness. Identify noise factors whose variation may aff
