Comparison of Designers? Modeling Approaches During Architectural Design Process
This study has been started as a part of a research, related to exploring impact of novel interfaces during collaborative architectural design process on designers? way of thinking. However, in this paper it is intended to focus on how the input devices reflect on designers? modeling behavior in computer environment. Therefore it is intended to compare designer?s modeling approaches in computer environment via a case study. Four master students in architectural design computing graduate program

The Busy World of Richard Scarry-Imagine That - Icebergs
In this video, Huckle and Lowly learn about icebergs. Most of the iceberg is under water. Sometimes big chunks fall off glaciers and this is how we get icebergs. Icebergs are much bigger than it looks. This is a great, quick teaching resource for learning about our world. Most students will not have background knowledge of icebergs and this will help to visualize the concept. Students will enjoy this video (1:06).
The Morning After Election Day
President Elect Barack Obama will likely hit the ground running in the day after the presidential election. As Bill Plante reports, he faces many obstacles.
Preschool Lesson: Forming Capital Letters
With Stamp and See, children learn to make capital letters step by step. They form letters by tracing with magnetic chalk or stamping with wood piece shapes. This lesson shows the teacher modeling a lesson using this product helping a small group of students learn how to form capital letters step by step.
How Music Works 4 - Bass - Part 2
Narrator is Howard Goodall. The Double Bass received its recognizable shape, size and tuning in around 1800. The vocabulary term contrary motion is discussed. Music is also played so viewers can hear the meaning of what is happening to the music to help explain contrary motion. (9:31)
1.101 Introduction to Civil and Environmental Engineering Design I (MIT)
In this sophomore design course, you will be challenged with three design tasks: a first concerning water resources/treatment, a second concerning structural design, and a third focusing on the conceptual (re)design of a large system, Boston's Back Bay. The first two tasks require the design, fabrication and testing of hardware. Several laboratory experiments will be carried out and lectures will be presented to introduce students to the conceptual and experimental basis for design in both domai
Hypertext Between Research and Teaching: An Experience in a Didactic Building Technology Laboratory
IPER (hypertext for the knowledge of building patrimony) is the result of a research developed with C.N.R. (National Research Institute). The aim of IPER is to provide the knowledge, the description and the management of one or more historical buildings for public or private institutions. IPER allowed us to improve our methodology of building analysis, covering various disciplinary fields, in two different systems. (1.) the first one, synthetic and suitable for a group of historical buildings, (
Structuring Paragraphs, Part 4
This is a video lecture on how to structure paragraphs. In this segment, Mr. Page discusses the development of a paragraph. The lecturer appears on the right side while images and information appears on the left. (06:26)

21F.103 Chinese III (Regular) (MIT)
This is the third of the four courses (Chinese I through IV) in MIT's regular (non-streamlined) Chinese curriculum. The four make use of the textbook, Learning Chinese: A Foundation Course in Mandarin (unpublished, but available online), to which are added various supporting materials as needs arise. The foundation level covers core grammar, linguistic culture, basic conversation, the principles of the writing system, and elementary reading. Reading is primarily in the simplified character set t
Automation of Deck Bridge Representations
The bridge deck has a apparent simple shape, but it is the result of an adequate combination of two longitudinal geometric components: the deck shape evolution along de longitudinal section the layout of the road, that acts in simultaneous over a cross section, defining the deck exact shape. A geometric modelling computer programme was developed for box girder decks, allowing the generation of cross sections along the deck, defined with correct shape and location. In the elaboration of the deck
Definition of Parallel Lines
Students learn the definitions of parallel lines, skew lines, parallel planes, and transversals, and are asked to identify these types of lines/planes in given figures. Students are also asked to identify alternate interior angles, same-side interior angles, and corresponding angles. Always, sometimes, and never questions are included in this lesson. (00:49)
Oswald's Midnight Press Conference
The midnight press conference of Oswald held on the evening of November 22, 1963. The video shows Jack Ruby at the back of the room.

The Art and Craft of Inspired Writing (Charles Johnson)
Literary leader Charles Johnson didn't ask to become famous, his characters just begged to be unleashed. This University of Washington professor of creative writing and author of "Middle Passage" joins Upon Reflection host Marcia Alvar in a 1991 interview about character development, critical reactions and the effects of literature on greater society.

16.412J Cognitive Robotics (MIT)
Cognitive robotics addresses the emerging field of autonomous systems possessing artificial reasoning skills. Successfully-applied algorithms and autonomy models form the basis for study, and provide students an opportunity to design such a system as part of their class project. Theory and application are linked through discussion of real systems such as the Mars Exploration Rover.
Introduction to the Coordinate Plane
In this PowerPoint presentation the learner is taken on a tour of the coordinate plane. All aspects of the coordinate plane are pointed out and directions on how to plot a point are given.
