Essential Mechanics - Statics and Strength of Materials with MATLAB and Octave
P. Venkataraman

Essential Mechanics - Statics and Strength of Materials with MATLAB and Octave combines two core engineering science courses - “Statics” and “Strength of Materials” - in mechanical, civil, and aerospace engineering. It weaves together various essential topics from Statics and Strength of Materials to allow discussing structural design from the very beginning. The traditional content of these courses are reordered to make it convenient to cover rigid body equilibrium and extend it to deformable body mechanics.The e-book covers the most useful topics from both courses with computational support through MATLAB/Octave. The traditional approach for engineering content is emphasized and is rigorously supported through graphics and analysis. Prior knowledge of MATLAB is not necessary. Instructions for its use in context is provided and explained. It takes advantage of the numerical, symbolic, and graphical capability of MATLAB for effective problem solving. This computational ability provides a natural procedure for What if? exploration that is important for design. The book also emphasizes graphics to understand, learn, and explore design. The idea for this book, the organization, and the flow of content is original and new. The integration of computation, and the marriage of analytical and computational skills is a new valuable experience provided by this e-book. Most importantly the book is very interactive with respect to the code as it appears along with the analysis.

Recognising the potential of blended learning, COL advocates the systematic integration of technology in teaching and learning in higher education institutions through policy development, capacity building and the use of appropriate low-cost technologies. While working with partner institutions for building capacity and implementing technology-enabled learning, it became clear that a definitive source on blended learning design would help teachers to follow available best practices. The idea for this Guide to Blended Learning emerged from this need. We hope this will be a valuable resource for teachers developing blended courses for effective student learning.

With raised awareness and accessibility laws emerging around the world, understanding what inclusive access to the Web means is becoming necessary knowledge for anyone who produces digital content. Much of the current information on Web accessibility requires some technical understanding, and may be difficult to consume for the average person. The instruction here will “interpret” the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1), to make it easier to understand for a general audience. You will have an opportunity to experience barriers firsthand, then experience that content with the barriers removed, developing a practical understanding of web accessibility.

African Indigenous Knowledge and Practices and the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals:
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

Sustainable development goals are resolutions born out of the need to create a people-centered development projects design to address the unfinished agendas of the Millennium development goals and also a framework aimed at achieving global sustainability agendas. It is a project that is designed against failure through various tracking indicators and visualization measures. Various researches, however, have suggested Indigenous Knowledge as a fundamental indicator in the realization of these goals. This short piece of work visualized the concept of sustainable development in the light of Indigenous knowledge systems and analyse the role it can play in contributing to the realization of global sustainability exploring its values and merits. The paper focuses on the SDG 4 and 17 highlighting the need for a radical exploration of Indigenous knowledge for a more quality education that is inclusive and indigenously informed. It explores the interrelatedness in the values of Indigenous knowledge systems, openness in education/knowledge sharing and sustainable development in the context of Africa settings. It identifies this interrelatedness as a mechanism for the realization of Indigenous knowledge expansion that could help in achieving partnership among world communities as a pathway for international developmental projects sustainability and suggests the need for the birth of theoretical models for data collection towards the realization of documenting and codifying indigenous practices despite its complexities and tactical nature.

This manual is about structures that occur within the Earth’s crust. Structures are the features that allow geologists to figure out how parts of the Earth have changed position, orientation, size and shape over time. This work requires careful observation and measurements of features at the surface of the Earth, and deductions about what’s below the surface. The practical skills you will learn in this course form the foundation for much of what is known about the history of the Earth, and are important tools for exploring the subsurface. They are essential for Earth scientists of all kinds.

The Environmental Politics and Policy of Western Public Lands
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

This book follows in the tradition of Charles “Chuck” Davis’ Western Public Lands and Environmental Politics (Westview Press), which many teachers and professors have used over the years in their environmental politics and policy courses. The second edition of Chuck’s book was published in 2001, and we were unsuccessful in trying to persuade him for a new edition. However, we were able to have him contribute to this volume and are very appreciative. Chuck has been a wonderful mentor, friend and colleague to both of us and we hope this book meets his approval. Chuck’s opening statement in the preface of the second edition is still relevant as we look back to the summer of 2018 and the forthcoming summer of 2019: “We are in the latter part of an unusually hot and dry summer the year 2000, and wildfires are burning out of control on large tracks of western lands” (2001: xi). Unfortunately, the increasing impacts of climate change on western public lands and the west as a whole has led to unprecedented catastrophic wildfires and loss of life, disappearing glaciers in western mountains, drought, and many western ecosystems teetering on the edge. In addition, a recent U.S. Geological Survey study estimates that approximately one-fourth of all carbon dioxide emissions in the U.S. are from fossil fuel extraction and combustion from public lands (Merrill et al., 2018). We anticipate that climate change effects will exacerbate conflict over western public lands management and have therefore asked each chapter author to include a discussion of climate change where appropriate.
