"Principles of Computer System Design: An Introduction, Spring 2009"
" Principles of Computer System Design: An Introduction is published in two parts. Part I, containing chapters 1-6, is a traditional printed textbook published by Morgan Kaufman, an imprint of Elsevier. Part II, containing chapters 7-11, is available here as an open educational resource. This textbook, an introduction to the principles and abstractions used in the design of computer systems, is an outgrowth of notes written for 6.033 Computer System Engineering over a period of 40-plus years.

War, peace & political thought
As taught Spring Semester 2011. This is an advanced module in the history of international political thought for MA students. It is structured in two parts. The first, comprising sessions 2-7, is concerned with an approach to the history of international theory, influential in the field, which insists on placing theorists in one of three ‘traditions’. We interrogate the integrity of these traditions, in each case, by analysing the work of at least two writers who are said to belong squarely
Baa to the Sun, Sing to the Moon
A sleepy Azibo is awakened by Baabra and her lambs as they say baa loudly to the sun. It's their family tradition; they baa to the sun weekly to say thanks for arriving safely on Panwapa. But they're keeping Azibo awake! That night, the rest of the Panwapa group has their weekly sing-along, while Baabra's lambs try to rest. How can everybody sleep and still respect one another's traditions? If you would like to add more questions or share ideas about how you use Panwapa with your students, creat
Selling the Unsellable: Bringing Experiential and Ephemeral Works of Contemporary Art to Market [Aud
Speaker(s): Dr Noah Horowitz | Since the 1960s artists have created ephemeral and experiential works of art that were frequently informed by a desire to thwart the market's mechanisms, or simply by ambivalence to economic conventions. How then do these works of art enter the market? By what means can a performance artist make a living without public subsidy? And what challenges and opportunities do conceptual, installation and performance works present to both commercial galleries and collectors
Peer to Peer and the Music Industry: The Criminalization of Sharing
Examining technical, legal and cultural strategies by the recording industry to persuade people that file-sharing is impossible, immoral, un-cool or dangerous, and the failure of these strategies. Alternative business models are discussed. The period from the advent of the compact disc in 1982 to the first significant file-sharing system in 1999 saw the greatest period of profitability in the history of recorded music. The decade since 1999 has seen an equally radical collapse. What seems obviou

Lugosi teaches math - convergence of series
Béla Lugosi teaches advanced mathematical concepts in this video. This is part of the last lecture of his series. He begins this lecture by talking about the Weierstrauss M-Test and talking about how a series or sequence of sums converges. In his lecture he provides the steps for this test, and proofs as well. A great video for advanced math learners. (Calculus and Calculus II students).
Vincent Van Gogh - An A&E Documentary
It's hard to believe that Van Gogh's work was shunned in his lifetime and that he lived as a peasant. His paintings were ignored. His father was a minister. At 15, Vincent left school and went to work for an art dealership. At 28 he completed his first oil painting. This informative A & E documentary shows many of his paintings during the narration.

Job Interviews is one of several Futures workbooks which help students choose and prepare for their careers. Like the other workbooks in the series you can dip in and out doing the exercises which are most relevant to you. You might want to include the exercises or the output in your personal development plan or e-portfolio. Interviews are still the most commonly used method for assessing a person’s suitability for a job. In the UK 99 per cent of employers use selection interviews to recruit

Technologies That Changed Our Brains
The Internet is just one in a series of “intellectual technologies” that have reshaped the way humans think. Nicholas Carr discusses some technologies, prior to the Internet, that have radically reshaped the way our brains work. Some of the technologies include the map, clock, and book. This video is in lecture format. (5:00)
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.
Math Probability Experiment
A student works on a project for her FLVS M/J Math 2 class about probabilities. She is interviewed on how she is going to set up her experiment with coins and what she thinks the outcome will be. She demonstrates the coin experiment and reports data collected.

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.
