|SMALLab is an extensible platform for semi-immersive, mixed-reality learning. By semi-immersive, we mean that the mediated space of SMALLab is physically open on all sides to the larger environment. Participants can freely enter and exit the space without the need for wearing specialized display or sensing devices such as head-mounted displays (HMD) or motion capture markers. Participants seated or standing around SMALLab can see and hear the dynamic media, and they can directly communicate with their peers that are interacting in the space. As such, the semi-immersive framework establishes a porous relationship between SMALLab and the larger physical learning environment. By mixed-reality, we mean that there is an integration of physical manipulation objects, 3D physical gestures, and digitally mediated components. By extensible, we mean that researchers, teachers, and students can create new learning scenarios in SMALLab using a set of custom designed authoring tools and programming interfaces.

|Configuring Open Journal Systems (OJS) to work with Stanford's Virtual Host Proxy (aka, "vanity URL") service requires some configuration tweaks to get all paths working properly. When installing a new instance of OJS (or adding a new journal to an existing installation, with its own virtual host proxy), you'll need to make changes to the following files to get it working:

|As you may have gathered already, the retina has a lot of neurons and neuronal connections, and if we hope to understand how the retina works, we have to observe the connections and neurons in many retinal samples. To this end, lots of retinal samples have been collected and imaged by microscope, and now its your job to make sense of these pictures.

|SMALLab is an extensible platform for semi-immersive, mixed-reality learning. By semi-immersive, we mean that the mediated space of SMALLab is physically open on all sides to the larger environment. Participants can freely enter and exit the space without the need for wearing specialized display or sensing devices such as head-mounted displays (HMD) or motion capture markers. Participants seated or standing around SMALLab can see and hear the dynamic media, and they can directly communicate with their peers that are interacting in the space. As such, the semi-immersive framework establishes a porous relationship between SMALLab and the larger physical learning environment. By mixed-reality, we mean that there is an integration of physical manipulation objects, 3D physical gestures, and digitally mediated components. By extensible, we mean that researchers, teachers, and students can create new learning scenarios in SMALLab using a set of custom designed authoring tools and programming interfaces.

Some of its key distinguishing features include: very clear, readable syntax, strong introspection capabilities, intuitive object orientation, natural expression of procedural code, full modularity, supporting hierarchical packages, exception-based error handling, very high level dynamic data types, extensive standard libraries and third party modules for virtually every task, extensions and modules easily written in C, C++ (or Java for Jython, or .NET languages for IronPython), embeddable within applications as a scripting interface

|f4 is our free transcription software for audio and video recordings
 +
|http://www.audiotranskription.de/english/f5
 +
|
 +
|
 +
|
 +
|f4 supports your transcription process, meaning your personal typing of video or audio recordings from interview situations. It simplifies the transcription work as you can slow down the playback speed, control via keys (also while using Word), (automatically) insert time markers and auto text via key combinations. Moreover, the audio stream is automatically rewinded a few seconds when pressing the Stop key.

|f5 - free transcription software for Mac
 +
|http://www.audiotranskription.de/english/f5
 +
|
 +
|
 +
|
 +
|f5 is the Mac version of f4, our standard program for scientific transcription. f5 reads audio files and video files, and considerably alleviates the transcription of interviews. f5 is a program which supports the transcription progress, the progress of manually writing down interview situations from video or audio files. Your work is alleviated by f5, because it slows down the playback speed without changing the pitch. You can control the playback with a footswitch or shortcuts. Whenever you pause the playback, f5 automatically rewinds it. An innovative function of f5 is that it synchronises your text with your current media file by adding a cue point to every paragraph. This allows you to directly jump to the passage you want to replay.

|VoiceWalker is a transcriber's tool, designed to help you transcribe audio or video recordings. VoiceWalker lets you play back the sound in a controlled way, with the benefit of being able to systematically step (or "walk") through a recording, repeating short segments for a specified number of repetitions, then moving on to the next segment. The segments overlap, so that the transcriber does not become disoriented. VoiceWalker assumes that you have digitized your recordings as computer files to work with them more easily (for information on how to digitize, see the VoiceWalker manual). VoiceWalker is free, available for Windows only.

|f4 supports your transcription process, meaning your personal typing of video or audio recordings from interview situations. It simplifies the transcription work as you can slow down the playback speed, control via keys (also while using Word), (automatically) insert time markers and auto text via key combinations. Moreover, the audio stream is automatically rewinded a few seconds when pressing the Stop key.
+
|is a free extension of MediaWiki – the wiki-system powering Wikipedia – that helps to search, organise, tag, browse, evaluate, and share the wiki's content. While traditional wikis contain only text which computers can neither understand nor evaluate, SMW adds semantic annotations that let you easily publish Semantic Web content, and allow the wiki to function as a collaborative database.

|f5 is the Mac version of f4, our standard program for scientific transcription. f5 reads audio files and video files, and considerably alleviates the transcription of interviews. f5 is a program which supports the transcription progress, the progress of manually writing down interview situations from video or audio files. Your work is alleviated by f5, because it slows down the playback speed without changing the pitch. You can control the playback with a footswitch or shortcuts. Whenever you pause the playback, f5 automatically rewinds it. An innovative function of f5 is that it synchronises your text with your current media file by adding a cue point to every paragraph. This allows you to directly jump to the passage you want to replay.

|Sputnik is a second-generation extensible wiki engine written in Lua. First generation wikis (like the original WikiWIki) opened our eyes to the possibility of easy collaborative content generation, with automatic revision control.

|VoiceWalker is a transcriber's tool, designed to help you transcribe audio or video recordings. VoiceWalker lets you play back the sound in a controlled way, with the benefit of being able to systematically step (or "walk") through a recording, repeating short segments for a specified number of repetitions, then moving on to the next segment. The segments overlap, so that the transcriber does not become disoriented. VoiceWalker assumes that you have digitized your recordings as computer files to work with them more easily (for information on how to digitize, see the VoiceWalker manual). VoiceWalker is free, available for Windows only.
