Wikiversity

Wikiversity is a learning community which aims to further the discovery and distribution of knowledge by helping people to learn and to share learning resources. Users can use Wikiversity to find information, ask questions, or learn more about a subject, to explore knowledge through advanced study and research and also to share their knowledge about a subject with others by building learning materials.
Wikiversity is available in 15 different languages, with a different number of learning resources for every language, varying from a few hundreds to over 20k.
The library of learning materials is growing and contains materials of all types, including a wide variety of multimedia course materials. They are designed, not just for self-study, but also as material which can be used in your classroom.
Everyone can create and revise teaching materials. Anyone can participate in the learning activities. Everyone can take a course. Everyone can teach a course. There are no entrance requirements and no fees. All content in Wikiversity is written collaboratively, using wiki software, and everyone is welcome to take part through using, adding and discussing content.

InTech - free scientific ebooks

InTech is an Open Access publisher of academic books and journals in the fields of Science, Technology and Medicine (STM). It provides free online access to high quality research and help leading academics make their work visible and accessible to diverse new audiences around the world.
Currently InTech gives free access to 1827 books and 12 journals, collaborating with more than 70,000 authors. They are researchers and scholars from the best ranked universities in the world, including globally-renowned experts.
Initially, most of the publications were in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Manufacturing, Operations Research, Environmental Engineering, Nanotechnology, Computer Science, Renewable Energy and Electrical Engineering. Since 2010 the publishing program has been expanded to General and Civil Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Materials Sciences and in particular Medicine, Biology and Biotechnology.
InTech is based on the principle of Open Access. It is a publishing model that does not charge readers for accessing scientific publications online. As a consequence, everything published as or in an open access resource is immediately available online for free. All use is fair use so long as the original authors and sources are credited. An Open Access article is more likely to be used and cited than one behind subscription barriers. Submitted works are published by InTech under the Open Access publishing model and Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license (the author retains the copyright to his/her work and that can use it in any manner.)
All published resources on the website are accessible without registration. It is needed to submit contributions to the website.

FAITS COMME DES RATS

Ce documentaire présente l’expérience des rats plongeurs mise en œuvre par Didier Desor dans son laboratoire lorrain de l’Université Henri Poincaré. Elle montre le comportement d'un groupe de rats dans un contexte expérimental qui les oblige à plonger et nager sous l'eau pour se nourrir. Se dessine alors dans le groupe une répartition des rôles entre des rats qui font le trajet (stressant) sous l'eau pour rapporter la nourriture et les rats qui ne plongent jamais, mais "volent" leur nourriture à ceux qui plongent.
Cette expérience fascine parce qu’elle nous renvoie à notre comportement et nous interpelle. Pourquoi certains rats plongent-ils pour aller chercher la nourriture alors que d’autres se contentent de la leur voler. Par quoi sont déterminés les rôles ? Peut-on étendre cette observation au genre humain ?

Ce film amène l’étudiant à comprendre les concepts de l’auto-organisation ainsi que leur concrétisation sur deux expériences. Il montre aussi tout le processus d’une démarche scientifique (hypothèses, mise en place d’une expérimentation, interprétation et conclusions)
L’ensemble des expériences est découpé, détaillé et filmé de façon à bien montrer à l’étudiant la transposition des différents paramètres de la première expérience sur les rats à celle utilisée chez l’homme.

Utilisables principalement en Psychologie sociale, psychologie du travail, les expériences menées avec l’explication de la démarche utilisée peuvent être appliquées dans différents domaines telles que la sociologie, les sciences cognitives mais aussi la robotique et l’informatique.
