The emergence of Capitalism and Transatlantic Trade in Europe
This video describes the emergence of Capitalism in Europe. As the video progresses, it discusses the transatlantic trade that took place amongst several continents. Maps show the trade routes to Asia, explorations
Anti-trust Laws and competition
Antitrust laws protect competition in the marketplace. There are three major federal antitrust laws: the Sherman Antitrust Act, the Clayton Act and the Federal Trade Commission Act. This is a brief video with the basic information on anti-trust laws.
Regroup Ones as Tens
Using manipulatives, students learn to regroup, trade or change groups of 1's into 10's. When you have more than 10 ones blocks, regroup, or change, 10 ones to 1 ten. User clicks through the slides.
Peer Conversations for e-Learning in the Grid
We take the view of 'learning as a conversational process', and argue that this can be extended to include the notions of peer-group interactions among students, tutors, and even artificial agents. This in turn lends itself to an approach to distributed conversation which builds upon modern Instant Messaging tools, and extends such tools to include what we call enhanced presence: a way of monitoring the availability of (and interacting with) fellow students and tutors at a distance. We describ
Hypermedia as a means for learning and for thinking about learning
This paper is about the design and realization of an experimentation with a hypermedial system, IPER-3, facing the three ‘classical’ problems in the history of mathematics (trisection of the angle, quadrature of the circle, duplication of the cube) and some issues which have developed around them. The aim of the work is to study the opportunities provided by hypermedial systems in dealing with topics of interest for the training of teachers and/or for class work, exploiting the possibility o
Presents quantitative approaches to theory construction in the context of multiple response variables, with models for both continuous and categorical data. Topics include the statistical basis for causal inference; principles of path analysis; linear structural equation analysis incorporating measurement models; latent class regression; and analysis of panel data with observed and latent variable models. Draws examples from the social sciences, including the status attainment approach to interg
Statistics for Laboratory Scientists I
This course introduces the basic concepts and methods of statistics with applications in the experimental biological sciences. Demonstrates methods of exploring, organizing, and presenting data, and introduces the fundamentals of probability. Presents the foundations of statistical inference, including the concepts of parameters and estimates and the use of the likelihood function, confidence intervals, and hypothesis tests. Topics include experimental design, linear regression, the analysis of
How to avert a financial crisis: why anticipation and management go a long way
Companies are overreacting to the economic downturn but, had they been better prepared in the first place, they wouldn’t find themselves in such a fix. This is according to Ludo Van der Heyden, INSEAD Professor of Technology and Operations Management.
The Art of Teaching the Arts: Nurturing Independent Thinkers
Arts teachers use formal and informal strategies to assess their students’ progress and to modify their own teaching practice. In this session, participants meet a vocal music teacher who splits his choir into groups that give each other feedback; he also has students tape-record themselves during rehearsal, so he can judge their individual progress. A dance teacher critiques original choreography by a student and asks her peers to participate in the process; this feedback helps the student de
Signals and Systems
Systems realizations. Time and transform domain analysis of discrete-time systems. Vector-space concepts and Fourier series. Fourier transforms in continuous and discrete time. Some lab and computational work required.
History of Utah
This course will cover the history of the State of Utah from its earliest records up to the present. Historical analysis and methodology will also be taught and specific assignments given to help each student understand methodology from within the context of Utah's History.
Aztec History and Culture
The Aztecs developed their own mythology, writing system, trade, and cities before the arrival of conquistador Hernán Cortes in 1519. This is an excellent ten minute video that deal with the history and culture of the Aztecs.
Exploring Teaching and Learning in Tertiary Contexts
This course enables tertiary educators to explore teaching and learning in tertiary environments. In doing so, they will focus on their own context and anticipated teaching roles. Through the process of critical self-analysis with reference to the qualities of effective tertiary educators, participants will produce a 'teaching capacity enhancement plan' (TCEP). This plan should be developed in collaboration with professional colleagues who are prepared to work alongside you as members of a focus
Cracking Caitlin's Code
This is a creative approach to teaching basic skills involved in the formal visual analysis of works of art. Students will learn how to interpret artworks in cultural and historical contexts by becoming "art detectives." Students will analyze Catlin's formal compositions to learn about the Native American leaders he painted. They will examine visual clues and write a final "case summary" in which they "crack Catlin's code."

The Story of Wakefield
A basic skills learning resource booklet with interactive activities designed to introduce the Wakefield Museum.
Nanomaterials Up Close: Nanoengineered electron guns
In this video we see an electron gun made of many thousands of vertically aligned carbon nanotubes, each more than 1,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair. Dr Matt Cole, from the University of Cambridge, explains the technological importance of exploiting emerging nanomaterials to engineer functionally novel X-ray sources. 'Nanomaterials Up Close' is a special series linked to our 'Under the Microscope' collection of videos produced by Cambridge University that show glimpses of the
Correlates of Desistance
There is no question that life in America has changed drastically in the past fifty years. Given the importance of examining historical change inherent in the life course perspective, it is important to determine how changes in the social structure over time impact individuals. Therefore, the goals of this data analysis exercise are to examine changes in marriage and employment over the last fifty years. The purposes are to identify the changes that have taken place, and to hypothesize how these
