Are you annoyed with the way people use their smartphone without regard for friends and family around them? This episode of 5Across deals with our lack of etiquette and how we should balance our need to be connected on our phones with the people around us. (26:21)
16.885J Aircraft Systems Engineering (MIT)
Aircraft are complex products comprised of many subsystems which must meet demanding customer and operational lifecycle value requirements. This course adopts a holistic view of the aircraft as a system, covering: basic systems engineering; cost and weight estimation; basic aircraft performance; safety and reliability; lifecycle topics; aircraft subsystems; risk analysis and management; and system realization. Small student teams "retrospectively analyze" an existing aircraft cove
Where next for public health in the era of austerity?
This event was the second in a series of master class lectures jointly staged by the University of Leeds and Leeds Metropolitan University bringing together relevant senior figures and academics from across the city and surrounding region. The twenty-first century has seen a growth in political, environmental and economic insecurity in the context of global recession, population ageing and climate change. Responding to these threats involves rethinking how we work together, care for ourselves,
Rosie the Riveters of World War II
Personal presentation incorporates video clips of women working in World War II. Radio clips of 1942 Fibber McGee and Molly and a radio clip of Japanese attack of Pearl Harbor, plus dress styles. (06:21)
If we want to solve for or describe a region in a coordinate plane, we can use linear inequalities. Linear inequalities give us a set of solutions as opposed to just one solution. This video clip explains how to solve linear inequalities using similar methods as in solving multi-step equations, except that there are extra rules when using multiplication and division. We graph linear inequalities by shading regions of number lines or coordinate planes. (6:20)
21M.603 Principles of Design (MIT)
This course deals with advanced design theories and textual analysis. Emphasis is placed on script analysis in general, as well as the investigation of design principles from a designer's perspective. Students also refine technical skills in rendering and presentation, historical research, and analysis. Class sessions include interaction with student/faculty directors and other staff designers. The goal of this course is for students to approach text with a fresh vision and translate that vision
Moments (Part 2) - Khan Academy
This video, which is suitable for high school students, starts with a black screen because the instructor, in his conversational tone, uses it as a 'chalkboard.' Instructor uses different colors for clarification. (13:50)
Welcome to this Futures workbook on finding work. It is split into several sections describing different techniques for finding work. You can dip in and out of the different sections; however it is not wise to rely on only one mechanism for finding work. It is a competitive market for final year students and new graduates and so you should try many alternate ways to find work.
Physics with Mr. Noon: Electric Current, Part 2
The instructor gives more classroom demonstrations dealing with electric current, voltage, resistance, and Ohm's Law. The classroom is dark because the instructor is using a projector in a darkened room.
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.
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

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
