You probably have a general understanding of how your body works. But do you fully comprehend how all of the intricate functions and systems of the human body work together to keep you healthy? This course will provide that insight. By approaching the study of the body in an organized way, you will be able to connect what you learn about anatomy and physiology to what you already know about your own body.

By taking this course, you will begin to think and speak in the language of the domain while integrating the knowledge you gain about anatomy to support explanations of physiological phenomenon. The course focuses on a few themes that, when taken together, provide a full view of what the human body is capable of and of the exciting processes going on inside of it.

Topics covered include: Structure and Function, Homeostasis, Levels of Organization, and Integration of Systems.

Learning Objectives: 1).Determine point estimates in simple cases, and make the connection between the sampling distribution of a statistic, and its properties as a point estimator.
2). Explain what a confidence interval represents and determine how changes in sample size and confidence level affect the precision of the confidence interval.
3). Find confidence intervals for the population mean and the population proportion (when certain conditions are met), and perform sample size calculations.

Evidence-Based Practice In Management And Consulting
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

This course will introduce students to the basic concepts and skills of evidence-based practice. The course is directly relevant to students who would like to improve the quality and outcome of their decision-making.

Managers and consultants are required to take action based on their decisions, and such decisions may have profound impacts on employees, customers and clients, the organization and society more widely. But how good are such decisions? How can we ensure that managers and consultants get hold of, accurately interpret and make use of the best available evidence in their decision-making?

This course will help students develop the practical skills managers and consultants need to bring evidence-based approaches to their organization. In the process of developing these skills you will also find out a lot about management research.

Examining Distributions
Conditions of Use:

1). Summarize and describe the distribution of a categorical variable in context.
2). Generate and interpret several different graphical displays of the distribution of a quantitative variable (histogram, stemplot, boxplot).
3). Summarize and describe the distribution of a quantitative variable in context: a) describe the overall pattern, b) describe striking deviations from the pattern.
4). Relate measures of center and spread to the shape of the distribution, and choose the appropriate measures in different contexts.
5). Compare and contrast distributions (of quantitative data) from two or more groups, and produce a brief summary, interpreting your findings in context.
5). Apply the standard deviation rule to the special case of distributions having the "normal" shape.

This course offers an overview of healthcare, health information technology, and health information management systems. The focus is on the role and responsibilities of entry-level health IT specialists in each phase of the health information management systems lifecycle. The curriculum is aligned to the new Certified Associate in Healthcare Information and Management Systems (CAHIMS) certification administered by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society. This certificate is designed for students who have previous experience in IT or healthcare and it is designed to serve as a pathway into health IT careers.

This course is a collaborative effort of TAACCCT grantees, in particular Bellevue Colleges and MoHealthWINs. The collaborative partners supporting the development of this course are Open Learning Initiative (OLI) at Stanford University and Carnegie Mellon University, Center for Applied Science and Technology (CAST), and Creative Commons (CC)- all funded through the Gates foundation OPEN Grant. The core development team includes content experts, learning scientists, software developers, instructional designers, universal design for learning experts and instructional technologists.

his is a complete course in chemical stoichiometry, which is a set of tools chemists use to count molecules and determine the amounts of substances consumed and produced by reactions. The course is set in a scenario that shows how stoichiometry calculations are used in real-world situations. The list of topics (see below) is similar to that of a high school chemistry course, although with a greater focus on reactions occurring in solution and on the use of the ideas to design and carry out experiments. Topics covered include: Dimensional Analysis, the Mole, Empirical Formulas, Limiting Reagents, Titrations, Reactions Involving Mixtures.

Public Policy Analysis for Engineers
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

Public policy issues are important to every field of engineering. Yet, most engineering students know little about the topic. For most students, however, an entire course focused on the topic is not necessary. For example, a class on engineering design could incorporate a case study on 3D printing policy.

This course will introduce students to the interrelationship of engineering and public policy, how to conduct neutral policy analysis, and then apply that knowledge in case studies to practice the skills they have learned. The modules takes a flipped classroom/active learning approach by using short videos to educate students, activities to practice the skills taught, and incorporates real-world examples such as hydraulic fracturing, drones, and 3D printing.
