E-science, E-research and E-learning:
New Perspectives for Graduate Studies
The quality of education for doctoral students is closely linked to the quality of the research they undertake. Benefiting from technological advances, new distributed and collaborative research practices can be witnessed. The concept of e-science has emerged and evolved to the concept of e-research. These concepts bring about a new research philosophy and the notion of collaboratory. Our research project aims to develop a renewed doctoral training approach and to facilitate researchers' adoptio

In this Khan Academy video, Sal Khan uses Green's Theorem to solve a line integral of a vector field. The instructor uses computer software for demonstration. The explanation is clear and understandable.
On Thursday 8 October the Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts (GIPCA) Great Texts Big Questions lecturer will be Professor Tim Noakes who will address "The body is willing but the mind is weak Or is it the other way around." The suggested reading is "Muscular Movement in Man The factors governing speed and recovery from fatigue" by AV Hill (1927). Noakes cofounder of the Sports Science Institute of SA author respected academic and A 1 rated scientist. He has long been acknowledged
Research how plants in your area can be used to indicate climate change. Project BudBurst is a U.S. field study campaign that engages citizen scientists in making careful observations of the phenological events such as first leafing, first flower, and first fruit ripening of a diversity of trees, shrubs, ...
Sam Winston, who also wrote/illustrated this work presents some ideas on the project he has been working on for the last three years. Winston’s experiments came from looking at the structures of different types of literature: from storybooks to bus timetables: “The way you navigate a timetable is very different to the way you read a short story” he comments. “I wanted to take these different types of visual navigation and introduce them to each other: a timetable re-ordering all the w

The student council (http://www.iscbsc.org/) of the International Society for Computational Biology asked me to present my thoughts on getting published in the field of computational biology at the Intelligent Systems in Molecular Biology conference held in Detroit in late June of 2005. Close to 200 bright young souls (and a few not so young) crammed into a small room for what proved to be a wonderful interchange among a group of whom approximately one-half had yet to publish their first paper.
Field biologists and ecologists are starting to open new avenues of inquiry at greater spatial and temporal resolution, allowing them to "observe the unobservable" through the use of wireless sensor networks. Sensor networks facilitate the collection of diverse types of data (from temperature to imagery and sound) at frequent intervals -- even multiple times per second -- over large areas, allowing ecologists and field biologists to engage in intensive and expansive sampling and to unobtrusively
In NASA CONNECT Virtual Earth, students will be introduced to Earth system science. They will learn what a system is and how to apply the concept of systems to learn more about how the Earth functions. Students will understand the only way to really comprehend the workings of our planet is to look at the Earth as a whole system. They will also focus on Earth science applications of national priority to expand and accelerate the use of knowledge, science, and technologies resulting from the Earth
This virtual textbook allows for visualization of 3D-molecular models while teaching principles of Organic Chemistry.
House building came to a virtual standstill during the depression and war years, a lull that gave way to a massive construction boom that reached far into the postwar period. By that time, however, the nature of the construction industry was undergoing rapid changes. The introduction of new technologies ...
During World War II, housing construction came to a virtual standstill. The return of millions of servicemen to civilian life in 1945 set off a national housing crisis, followed by a construction boom. Although other New Deal and wartime housing programs emphasized rental apartments in close proximity ...
