Wear a Chimp on Your Wrist
The OLogy activity offers an interesting twist on the study of DNA. Students use colored beads (or gumdrops) to create a bracelet that's based on a section of DNA code. The two strands of the bracelet are then twisted together into a double helix. They can choose to recreate DNA code from a list of favorite plants and animals that includes a monarch butterfly, a chimpanzee, a sunflower, and a brown trout. The activity includes illustrated step-by-step directions.

Can Public Health Researchers and Agencies Reconcile the Push From Funding Bodies and the Pull From
Responding to growing impatience with the limited application of research findings to health practices and policies, both funding bodies and communities are demanding that research show greater sensitivity to communities’ perceptions, needs, and unique circumstances. One way to assure this is to employ participatory research—to engage communities at least in formulating research questions and interpreting and applying research findings and possibly also in selecting methods and analyzing dat
Biomechatronics is a contraction of biomechanics and mechatronics. In this course the function and coordination of the human motion apparatus is the central focus, and the design of assistive devices for the support of the function of the motion apparatus. Study Goals: The student must be able to: 1. Make a Problem Analysis of a given assignment in the field of the human motion apparatus and its interaction with an assistive device ; Identify the underlying cause [pathology] of the problem as p

AstroGrid as an e-Learning Environment
We present the concept of the Virtual Observatory through the AstroGrid project, which is a Virtual Organization making intensive use of the Internet to produce a working data-grid for Astronomical applications. AstroGrid has implemented a series of tools which facilitate collaborative work such as news, forum and discussion pages, all of them inspired by the open source and licensing philosophy. Additionally we explore how such an Astronomical Grid project can be used in the future as an e-Le

Un modèle d’élève par l’analyse statistique implicative. Prise en compte du contexte algébri
Le modèle d’élève que nous construisons cherche à donner une représentation fine des compétences cognitives des élèves dans le domaine de l’algèbre. Il se fonde sur les micro-actions enregistrées dans le micromonde Aplusix. Ces actions étant de niveau très fin, nous devons reconstruire les connaissances à un niveau plus abstrait : non pas une action isolée mais un ensemble d’actions « similaires » apparaissant dans un même contexte. Nous utilisons pour cela l’analyse sta
Structuring and merging Distributed Content
A flexible approach for structuring and merging distributed learning object is presented. At the basis of this approach there is a formal representation of a learning object, called attribute structure. Attribute structures are labeled directed graphs representing structured information on the learning objects. When two or more learning objects are merged, the corresponding attribute structures are unified, and the unified structure is attached to the resulting learning object.
