2 River flow
Water is arguably the most important physical resource as it is the one that is essential to human survival. Understanding the global water cycle and how we use water is essential to planning a sustainable source of water for the future. In the UK there area areas where water supplies are limited, shown by recent droughts. Globally, there are many areas that do not have enought water to support the currently population adequately. Decisions will have to be made on the best way to use water in a
What Will A Companionable Computational Agent Be Like? (Lovelace Lecture 2010)
Yorick Wilks explores the state of the art in modelling realistic conversation with computers over the last 40 years, and asks what we would want in a conversational agent (or 'Companion') designed for a long-term relationship with a user. This lecture begins by looking at the state of the art in modelling realistic conversation with computers over the last 40 years. Yorick Wilks argues that there has been real progress, even though some systems of the late 1960s were remarkably good, a fact lar
Architectural References to Virtual Environments Design
Based on a comparison between the perception of digital and real construction, the development of virtual systems and the review of additional sources, this paper states some differences between the design of virtual environments and architectural spaces. Virtual-reality technologies provide advanced capabilities to simulate real situations, and also to create digital worlds not referred to physical places, such as imaginary landscapes or environments devoted to electronic activities, like enter

Vector Fields and Hydrodynamics
At first glance, replacing the old idea of action at a distance by the new idea of the field of force seems to e an exercise in semantics. But it isn't, because fields have definite properties of their own suitable for scientific study. For example, electric fields are different in form from magnetic fields, and both kinds can better be understood by analogy to field of
Angles: Composition Measuring The instructor uses an electronic sketchpad to demonstrate how to constucut angles. Video discusses vocabulary and symbols associated with angles, ray (sides of the angle), vertex (the point where the rays start). It then goes on to use the protractor to measure an angle. It starts with where to put one line of the angle and then where and what to measure. It also instru

TALAT Lecture 2104.02: Case Study on Windows
This lecture gives teachers and students grounding in the development of satisfactory and suitable window design in aluminium; it helps them acquire an understanding of the principles underlying good design. Students need to be able to design aluminium windows which conform to local planning regulations and which are suitable for national traditions in each market they are offered in. This involves the acquisition of local climatic data since the products need to withstand the climatic condition
This module introduces you to managing change by providing tools that will support putting the change into context, planning changes using change models, implementing changes and effective communication with an understanding of the environment and then monitoring and managing the process. * Powerpoint presentation - Introduction (for all users) * Powerpoint presentation - Introduction with lecturer's notes (registered users only, please register/login here) * Powerpoint presentation - Inter
Leadership and Management
Through this module participants will have a better understanding of themselves and their impacts on others. They will understand the similarities and differences between management and leadership, as well as different models/styles and principles of leadership, the strengths and weaknesses of each, when they should be used and their potential use in improving population health and wellbeing. * Powerpoint presentation (for all users) * Powerpoint presentation with lecturer's notes (registere
COMPUTADORES Y PROGRAMACIÓN (2008)
Los computadores son usados ampliamente en la aeronautica, tanto en los sistemas que controlan el vuelo de los aeronaves (aviónica), como en los sistemas auxiliares que los controlan (sistemas de control de tráfico aéreo, guiado, etc.). Además, los ordenadores se usan en la ingeniería para desarrollar y hacer pruebas de modelos antes de realizar los primeros prototipos reales, Por lo tanto es básico conocer el funcionamiento de los computadores y tener unas nociones básicas de programaci

Teachers' attitudes to and beliefs about web-based collaborative learning environments in the contex
This paper reports the conceptions of teachers from four European countries of the Innovative Technologies for Collaborative Learning project tools for collaborative learning. Fifty six teachers were interviewed about different aspects of the CLE (Webbased Collaborative Learning Environment) implementations and about their own evaluations of the CLE implementations in their classrooms. Their answers were analysed using categories based on a model from cultural-historical activity theory (Engestr
