Using learning style theory in remote laboratory applications
Tokdemir, Guel; Cagiltay, Nergiz Ercil (2007-09-07)
Studies have shown that, while learning different concepts, people sometimes use different approaches. These different approaches define individual learning styles. Understanding learning style differences is thus an important step in improving performance of the individuals and educational institutions. In this study, a learning style assessment tool was used to examine the relationship between students' learning styles and their performance in engineering education programs of Atilim University. 329 stude...
Using Electronic Energy Derivative Information in Automated Potential Energy Surface Construction for Vibrational Calculations
Sparta, Manuel; Hansen, Mikkel B.; Matito, Eduard; Toffolı, Danıele; Christiansen, Ove (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2010-10-01)
The availability of an accurate representation of the potential energy surface (PES) is an essential prerequisite in an anharmonic vibrational calculation. At the same time, the high dimensionality of the fully coupled PES and the adverse scaling properties with respect to the molecular size make the construction of an accurate PES a computationally demanding task. In the past few years, our group tested and developed a series of tools and techniques aimed at defining computationally efficient, black-box pr...
Using System Dynamics for Strategic Performance Management in Construction
Yildiz, Acelya Ecem; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2020-03-01)
Balanced scorecard (BSC) and strategy maps (SMs) are among the most popular strategic performance management methods that have been proposed in the literature to define, analyze, and monitor performance and strategies. Despite their popularity, BSC and SMs have been criticized for their inability to simulate dynamic interrelations between performance measures and strategies over time. In this paper, a dynamic SM was developed by using system dynamics (SD) modeling based on the BSC framework. This paper desc...
Using 3D contours and their relations for cognitive vision and robotics
Başeski, Emre; Bodenhagen, Leon; Pugeault, Nicolas; Kalkan, Sinan; Piater, Justus; Krüger, Norbert (2009-12-01)
In this work, we make use of 3D visual contours carrying geometric as well as appearance information. Between these contours, we define 3D relations that encode structural information relevant to object-level operations such as similarity assessment and grasping. We show that this relational space can also be used as input features for learning which we exemplify for the grasping of unknown objects. Our representation is motivated by the human visual system in two respects. First, we make use of a visual de...
