In this article by Mary Cooch, we will learn how to save energy. Not only our own, but the world's too! Moodle's main attraction, to many teachers, is the fact that you can upload all of those worksheets that you hand out in class (and that your students lose). When you've done it once, they are there for as long as you need them—so you don't have to find and print them off the next time you do that topic, and fewer trees will be felled in the name of education!
In this article, we shall:
- Put an information sheet about the River Thames into Moodle
- Load a whole week's slideshows about River processes into Moodle in a neat folder
- Make a click here type link (this is known as a hyperlink) to the River Thames web site
- Create a worksheet about flooding by typing it straight into Moodle
- Make our page a bit prettier now that we've got some real stuff on it

The R base library has very powerful graphical capabilities. While you can produce pretty much any type of graph with a couple of lines of code, the default layout and look of the graph is often very basic. Sometimes, you may run into problems such as axis labels and titles getting chopped off at the edges or the legend size or position may mask part of your graph. Sometimes, the default color combinations may not be suitable for presentation or publication.
In this article by Hrishi V. Mittal, author of R Graph Cookbook, we will cover:
- Setting colors of points, lines, and bars
- Setting plot background colors
- Setting colors for text elements: axis annotations, labels, plot titles, and legends
- Choosing color combinations and palettes
- Setting fonts for annotations and titles

Business Process Execution Language (BPEL, aka WS-BPEL) has become the de facto standard for orchestrating services in SOA composite applications. BPEL reduces the gap between business requirements and applications and allows better alignment between business processes and underlying IT architecture.
In this article by Matjaz B. Juric, author of the book WS-BPEL 2.0 for SOA Composite Applications with IBM WebSphere 7, we will familiarize ourselves with some important activities offered by BPEL, particularly activity names, loops, delays, empty activities, and process termination. We will not discuss concrete use cases where these activities can be used, because they are well known to developers. Let us first look at loops.Read Advanced Activities in BPEL in full

In this article by Max De Wilde and Ruben Verborgh, the authors of the book Using OpenRefine, we dive deeper into dataset repair, demonstrating some of the more sophisticated data operations OpenRefine has to offer. OpenRefine (ex-Google Refine) is a powerful tool for working with messy data, cleaning it, transforming it from one format into another, extending it with web services, and linking it to databases like Freebase. The true power of OpenRefine only emerges when you dive into its more advanced features. This article will therefore shed light on the following:
- Recipe 1 – handling multi-valued cells
- Recipe 3 – clustering similar cells
Let's start with recipe 1.Read Advanced Data Operations in full
In the previous articles, Getting Started with Blender’s Particle System and Getting Started with Blender’s Particle System- A Sequel, by Reynante Martinez, we discussed about the general usage and concepts behind Blender's Particle System and found some cool ways to extend it further. We also discussed several types of the particle system as well as some practical results that can be derived from it like: dust, smoke, fire/flame, bubbles, rock slide animation, and hair/fur/grass.
This time around and as I promised in the previous articles, I'll tackle more advanced usages and features of Blender's particle system which are as follows:
- Disintegration effect
- Multiple particle systems
In the previous article by Reynante Martinez, we saw the disintegration effect in Blender's Particle System. In this article we will tackle some more features of Blender's particle system which are as follows:

In this article, by José María Mateos Pérez, Javier Pascau, the authors of Image Processing with ImageJ, discusses how to extend our abilities to measure and manipulate our images First we will learn what are selections, regions of interest, and overlays, and how to work with them and what can be measured using these tools. After this, we will focus on some classic image processing both in spatial and frequency domains, understanding what that means. Finally, we will see how particle analysis can be done in ImageJ.Read Advanced Image Processing with ImageJ in full
