Principles and foundations for the digital era

Short Description:
The book goes beyond the surface to explain why AECO digitization matters with respect to information. It presents information in the framework of representation, introduces a semantic typology of data and connects process to information management, towards a coherent and transparent theory of building information for the digital era.

Long Description:
Digitization in AECO is in a transitional phase. On one hand, technologies like BIM finally introduce symbolic representation and, on the other, there is an unhealthy and unproductive attachment to outdated, analogue practices and documents. The book goes beyond the surface to explain why digitization matters with respect to information. It presents information in the framework of representation, introduces a semantic typology of data and connects process to information management, towards a coherent and transparent theory of building information for the digital era.

Rating
0.0 stars

The book presents a coherent theory of building information, focusing on its representation and management in the digital era. It addresses issues such as the information explosion and the structure of analogue building representations to propose a parsimonious approach to the deployment and utilization of symbolic digital technologies like BIM. It also considers the matching representation of AECO processes in terms of tasks, so as to connect to information processing and support both information management and decision taking.

A self directed study course

Long Description:
The overarching objective of this 4-module course will be to facilitate the development of faculty, instructors, and teaching staff who seek to create quality, technology-enhanced (digital) learner experiences. Learners will leave the course able to take the best resources and experiences from this course and apply them to the design and structures of their own courses.

The course will meet the above objectives through its community building and e-moderation in the first half of the course as participants are blueprinting technology-enhanced learner experiences in the first module, and blueprinting learner interactions within the second. Module 3 and 4 will enhance participant draft designs through activity that assures access to flexible experiences and activates learning effectively within digital spaces.

Short Description:
The e-book Digital Privacy: Leadership and Policy is a companion to the online course of the same name, and is situated in the context of education.

Long Description:
Digital Privacy: Leadership and Policy is an e-book companion to the online course of the same name. Situated in the context of education, the authors explore how policies in school systems and regulatory bodies are needed to match the contingencies created by technological advances. With the power of technology to document many aspects of everyday life, there is a pressing need to manage how much personal information is available to corporate entities. Building on current events, the authors outline some of the risks with ubiquitous surveillance and data capture, which threaten personal choice, reputation and online identity. Student readers are encouraged to think deeply about the implications for society when personal choices for information are curated to their preferences. This book also contains digital privacy case studies developed by graduate students and shared for teaching and learning purposes.

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.
