An example resource

We’re still working on completing all the resources for the project. The way we have worked is to revise the teaching and learning materials as they are being taught and so it won’t be until classes are over that all the resources will be ready. About fifteen lectures are now more or less ready. We’ve run into some cross-platform problems as the original slides were created with Powerpoint for Windows, using actions which don’t convert to Powerpoint for OS X or to Open Office. For now, these have been removed, making the slides less interactive, but more widely compatible.

Anyway, here’s an example. Tom, a graduate student who’s been working with us on the project, has created all the illustrations. Although there will be around 20 lectures, each presentation is rich in models and other illustrations, totalling around 400 individual, re-usable resources for scientists. In addition to this are the videos and we’ll be adding autio to the slides over the summer.
