http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=842908
This video tutorial is geared towards graduate and professional students, but could also be helpful for undergraduate students working on an honors thesis or capstone project. It coveres: What is a literature review? What purpose does it serve in research? What should you expect when writing one? This was created for a general audience and is not specific to any one institution or discipline. It provices an overview of the literature review process: planning, gathering sources, categorizing, synthesizing, and writing. National Art Education Association (NAEA)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=841724
Founded in 1947, The National Art Education Association is the leading professional membership organization exclusively for visual arts educators. Members include elementary, middle and high school visual arts educators, college and university professors, researchers and scholars, teaching artists, administrators and supervisors, and art museum educators, as well as more than 45,000 students who are members of the National Art Honor Society or are university students preparing to be art educators. - See more at: http://www.arteducators.org/about-usAn Introduction to Group Theory - Applications to Mathematical Music Theory
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=837062
This is a free textbook offered by BookBoon.'The success of Group Theory is impressive and extraordinary. It is, perhaps, the most powerful and influential branch of all Mathematics. Its influence is strongly felt in almost all scientific and artistic disciplines (in Music, in particular) and in Mathematics itself. Group Theory extracts the essential characteristics of diverse situations in which some type of symmetry or transformation appears. Given a non-empty set, a binary operation is defined on it such that certain axioms hold, that is, it possesses a structure (the group structure). The concept of structure, and the concepts related to structure such as isomorphism, play a decisive role in modern Mathematics.The general theory of structures is a powerful tool. Whenever someone proves that his objects of study satisfy the axioms of a certain structure, he immediately obtains all the valid results of the theory for his objects. There is no need to prove each one of the results in particular. Indeed, it can be said that the structures allow the classification of the different branches of Mathematics (or even the different objects in Music (! )).The present text is based on the book in Spanish “Teoría de Grupos: un primer curso” by Emilio Lluis-Puebla, published by the Sociedad Matemática Mexicana This new text contains the material that corresponds to a course on the subject that is offered in the Mathematics Department of the Facultad de Ciencias of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México plus optional introductory material for a basic course on Mathematical Music Theory.This text follows the approach of other texts by Emilio Lluis-Puebla on Linear Algebra and Homological Algebra. A modern presentation is chosen, where the language of commutative diagrams and universal properties, so necessary in Modern Mathematics, in Physics and Computer Science, among other disciplines, is introduced.This work consists of four chapters. Each section contains a series of problems that can be solved with creativity by using the content that is presented there; these problems form a fundamental part of the text. They also are designed with the objective of reinforcing students’ mathematical writing. Throughout the first three chapters, representative examples (that are not numbered) of applications of Group Theory to Mathematical Music Theory are included for students who already have some knowledge of Music Theory.In chapter 4, elaborated by Mariana Montiel, the application of Group Theory to Music Theory is presented in detail. Some basic aspects of Mathematical Music Theory are explained and, in the process, some essential elements of both areas are given to readers with different backgrounds. For this reason, the examples follow from some of the outstanding theoretical aspects of the previous chapters; the musical terms are introduced as they are needed so that a reader without musical background can understand the essence of how Group Theory is used to explain certain pre-established musical relations. On the other hand, for the reader with knowledge of Music Theory only, this chapter provides concrete elements, as well as motivation, to begin to understand Group Theory.'Movenote App for iOS
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=836663
Movenote let’s you record video alongside documents or pictures to create an integrated video presentation with slides. Creating presentations is easy and fast. Simply record video with your device and swipe to synchronize the slides to the video. Presentations are shared by sending a link to the recipient and can be viewed without the app.First add the material you want to present to form a slideshow. Add pictures from your photo albums or take them directly with your camera. Alternatively bring a document from your mailbox or cloud storage like Dropbox. Also you can combine material from all these different sources. Secondly, record the video and simultaneously change slides by swiping. The recorded presentation will play out with the exact same timing.Electronics and Computing in Textiles
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=833672
This is a free textbook offered by BookBoon.'Electronics and Computing in Textiles connects the fields of electronics and computing with the field of textiles presenting the principles of the disciplines of electronics and computing with examples and applications in textiles. This structure is very important, especially because of the expansion of textiles in the modern multifunctional materials and products world. Furthermore, the progress in the textile processes with the use of automation systems is based mainly on electronic and computing concepts. Thus, Electronics and Computing in Textiles is essential in the modern textile engineering curriculum.'Recordingology
