Magnetism - by StudyJams
Magnetism is the property of attracting iron. A magnetic object's magnetic force is how strong that attraction is. Magnetic fields are the areas where the magnetic force will work. Magnets also have opposite poles, negative and positive. Learn more about magnetism with this slide show from StudyJams. Detailed images are set to music while information is written under each photo. A short, self-checking quiz is also included with this link.

Observations on Collaborative Design and Multimedia Usage in Virtual Design Studio
The virtual design studio (VDS) points to a new way of practicing and teaching architectural design. As a new phenomenon, little research has been done to evaluate design collaboration and multimedia usage in a distributed workplace like the virtual design studio. Our research provides empirical data on how students actually use multiple media during architectural collaborative design.
