In this animated object, learners examine how the way in which a rheostat is connected in series with other resistors causes current and voltage to change as the resistance is varied. A brief quiz completes the activity.
The learner will study an effective workplace email being written while a narrator explains the step-by-step process. The learner will distinguish the difference between poorly written and effectively written emails.
The Effect of Temperature on the Vapor Pressure of a Liquid
Learners examine how vapor pressure is calculated. The vapor pressure of a liquid increases with increasing temperature. If the heat of vaporization and the vapor pressure at one temperature are known, the vapor pressure at a second temperature can be calculated.
Questioning Clue: Are You an Effective Questioner?
In this interactive object, learners solve a school mystery by identifying the "suspects" in the hierarchy of questioning: knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. This activity was designed for teachers and instructional assistants.
Learners follow the FMEA process to predict potential failures and to prevent them. This activity uses the example of getting to work to help participants comprehend the concepts and to apply them to their own work processes.
