EagleRidge Technologies' Favorite Links -- Distance Education

 
  • Distance Education:
    • Jonnie's Distance Learning Page -- links on distance learning around the world.
    • Stanford Engineering Everywhere - free classes
    • Handy links for distance learning grad students:
      • Whatis.com: Good place for everyday quick look-ups of technical words.  Caveat: the definitions here, while handy, may not be complete, and are usually not suitable as a formal reference for use on exams, in research papers, etc..  http://www.whatis.com
      • Search Engines: There are a lot of them out there.  Some which seem to give particularly good results for topics covered by graduation courses (since they index internal pages on sites) are:
        Hotbot
        Google
        Ask Jeeves (ask.com)
        http://www.deja.com/usernet/ (for searching USENET newsgroups)

        Some searching tips: Just because you don't find a link in the top 10 results for a search, don't give up.  Try several different likely search phrases or approaches.  If that doesn't work, start looking more deeply in the search results.  Your T.A. has found "that perfect link" as low as #463 in a search engine's result list.  If that doesn't work, keep going until you've tried several different engines.  What you seek is nearly always out there; nobody said it would be easy to find.  Contact your T.A. for help with searching the net.
        Boolean search methods vary from engine to engine.  Check the following for specific tips:
      • Babylon - software that lets you click on any word to translate it. Instant translation and lookup software and service, with 12 languages, including English-to-English. Especially excellent for those whose native language is not English, but also good for quick word look-ups even for native English speakers.  Highlight an unfamiliar word on a web page, and a definition in your chosen language is often a click away! 
      • CyberEdit: Commercial service offering resume, admissions essay, web page, and business editing by Harvard-educated editors,  here. Of course we hope your written English is up to graduate school standards.  If not, you may want to consider using an editor, free or paid, for your formal writing.
      • Free machine translation services (some limits on document length):
