8.325 Relativistic Quantum Field Theory III (MIT)
This course is the third and last term of the quantum field theory sequence. Its aim is the proper theoretical discussion of the physics of the standard model. Topics include: quantum chromodynamics; the Higgs phenomenon and a description of the standard model; deep-inelastic scattering and structure functions; basics of lattice gauge theory; operator products and effective theories; detailed structure of the standard model; spontaneously broken gauge theory and its quantization; instantons and
15.356 How to Develop "Breakthrough" Products and Services (MIT)
To prosper, firms must develop major product and service innovations. Often, though, they don't know how. Recent research into the innovation process has made it possible to develop "breakthroughs" systematically. 15.356 presents several practical concept development methods, such as the "Lead User Method," where manufacturers learn from innovative customers. Expert guest speakers present case studies that show the "art" required to implement a concept development method. 15.356 is a half-term s

Writing Linear Equations - Algebra Help
Students learn to write the equation of a line in slope-intercept form using the graph of the line.
Open University ethnomusicologist Martin Clayton describes how his study of music and its performance in different cultural settings has allowed him to develop his understanding of the concept of entrainment. His research into this phenomenon is providing key insights into the synchronisation of rhythmic processes in humans and in the natural world.
Using Foreign Language as a Bridge to Learning
This is a 6:49 minute video about a Japanese language program that uses immersion and pairs up students as part of a school exchange program that includes life skills.
Great Expectations 4/12
The movie based on the novel by Charles Dickens, Great Expectations.
There are subtitles in this movie. This is part 4 of 12 parts.
4.665 Contemporary Architecture and Critical Debate (MIT)
This class, required of all Master of Architecture students, presents a critical review of works, theories, and polemics in architecture in the aftermath of World War II. The aim is to present a historical understanding of the period, and to develop a meaningful framework to assess contemporary issues in architecture. Special attention will be paid to historiographic questions of how architects construe the terms of their "present."
Functional Behaviour of Materials: Electromigration
This set of animations covers electromigration damage and resistance to it. It introduces the concept Blech length. From TLP: Electromigration
Thomas Jefferson was the 3rd U.S. President (1801-1809). He was born in the colony of Virginia in 1743. Thomas Jefferson's ideas helped create a new kind of government -- one that cared about people's freedoms and rights. This is a video clip. (Note:This clip has a slightly-biased point of view. Freedom? It is a well-known fact that Jefferson had many slaves.)(1:35)
STS.464 Technology and the Literary Imagination (MIT)
Our linked subjects are (1) the historical process by which the meaning of technology has been constructed, and (2) the concurrent transformation of the environment. To explain the emergence of technology as a pivotal word (and concept) in contemporary public discourse, we will examine responses — chiefly political and literary — to the development of the mechanic arts, and to the linked social, cultural, and ecological transformation of 19th- and 20th-century American society, cultu
Intro to Algebra, Part 1
This clip provides a quick introduction to algebra. A couple of examples are shown on a white board to help students see the idea of how variables and reduction of equations can be useful.
Faster Multiplication With Two-Digit Numbers
The instructor offers a faster way to do two-digit multiplication than American students are traditionally taught, however, this faster method is known in Australian and British schools. The instructor uses a small, portable white board and two colored markers for his demonstration. (02:25)
Night in the AARC
A student janitor is cleaning the AARC (Anderson Athletic and Recreation Complex) when it comes to life. Night in the AARC was written and filmed by student director Eddie Kunz and features students from the University of St. Thomas.
Lecture 15: Engineering for Sustainable Development
Professor Roland Clift, CBE on "Engineering for Sustainable Development". The term "sustainable development" embodies an important ethical principle which includes the concept of responsibility to present and future generations. This has significance not just for the practice of engineering but for the role of the individual engineer. This talk explored, using specific cases, how sustainable development affects the way in which the technical skills of the engineer should be deployed.
11.482J Regional Socioeconomic Impact Analyses and Modeling (MIT)
The seminar is designed to provide advanced graduate students with a thorough understanding of selected regional economic theories and techniques and with experience in using alternative socioeconomic impact assessment models and related regional techniques on microcomputers. Discussions will be held on particular theoretical modeling and economic issues; linkages among theories, accounts, and policies; relationships between national and regional economic structures; and methods of adjusting and
HHMI 2010 Holiday Lectures - The Virus Hunter's Toolkit
Infectious diseases are a serious threat to world health. They are particularly devastating in tropical countries where infectious agents thrive and where healthcare resources are stretched thin. Two leading virus researchers explain how they use both simple and sophisticated technologies to detect and fight infectious agents. Part two of the Holiday lecture series is given by Dr. Joseph DeRisi of University of California, San Francisco, as he seeks to clarify what tools are available for thos
