A list of the Best Online Colleges in Indiana for 2016-2017 has been released by leading online higher education information provider AffordableCollegesOnline.org. Measuring a dozen different data sets provided by schools across the state, the site found Indiana State University, Indiana Wesleyan University, Huntington University, Oakland City University and Ivy Tech Community College earned the highest marks for the best overall combination of cost, quality, variety and flexibility in online education. "Only three out of every ten students at Indiana colleges finishes a four-year degree on time,” said Dan Schuessler, CEO and Founder of AffordableCollegesOnline.org. "Schools on this list are offering students more flexible learning options by way of top-quality online education programs. This provides an alternative opportunity for students to hit their on-time graduation goals, and is a great resource for students seeking.” In order to be considered for the AffordableCollegesOnline.org list, schools are required to meet specific base criteria. Each institution on the Best list must hold accreditation and be a public or private not-for-profit entity. To meet the site’s affordability standards, each school must offer in-state tuition under $5,000 per year to qualify for the two-year colleges list, and under $25,000 to qualify for the four-year colleges list. Each qualifying school is scored and ranked based on a unique value-based formula.

We study reproducing kernels, and associated reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces (RKHSs) JE over infinite, discrete and countable sets V. In this setting we analyze in detail the distributions of the corresponding Dirac point-masses of V. Illustrations include certain models from neural networks: An Extreme Learning Machine (ELM) is a neural networkconfiguration in which a hidden layer of weights are randomly sampled, and where the object is then to compute resulting output. For RKHSs JE of functions defined on a prescribed countable infinite discrete set V, we characterize those which contain the Dirac masses dx for all points x in V. Further examples and applications where this question plays an important role are: (i) discrete Brownian motion-Hilbert spaces, i.e., discrete versions of the Cameron-Martin Hilbert space; (ii) energy-Hilbert spaces corresponding to graph-Laplacians where the set V of vertices is then equipped with a resistance metric; and finally (iii) the study of Gaussian free fields. © 2015 Palle Jorgensen and Feng Tian.

Recently, significant numbers of instructors in higher education have employed the flipped classroom, or inverted classroom, pedagogy. Studies have found varying degrees of success of the flipped classroom in increasing student achievement. However, previous results from the author indicate that a significant time investment by the instructor is required to produce the required content for a flipped classroom. The Think-Pair-Share pedagogy is one of many active learning methods that have been shown to be successful in increasing student performance over non-active lectures. Furthermore, most teachers agree that incorporating Think-Pair-Share questions into their lectures does not require too much time reworking their notes. The goal of this research was to determine if student performance in thermodynamics on both computational and conceptual questions was increased when the flipped classroom model was used compared to students who were instructed using the Think-Pair-Share model. For this study in the Fall of 2013, two sections of thermodynamics at Trine University were taught by the same instructor using the same homework and exams. For the first section (N = 20) the students were instructed using the flipped classroom model. For the second section (N = 8) the students were instructed using the Think-Pair-Share model. While the relatively small number of students limits the statistical significance of this study, results indicate that there was no difference between the educational performance of these two groups on either computational or conceptual tasks as indicated by their exam scores. However, students in the flipped classroom did state that they enjoyed the flipped classroom model and wished that more faculty members used this method. © American Society for Engineering Education, 2015.

The position of the torso and the magnitude of exertion are thought to influence the distribution pattern of intervertebral movements within the lumbar spine. Abnormal intervertebral movements have been correlated with the risk of spine injuries. Since the capability to measure movement distribution within the lumbar spine noninvasively is limited, a convenient method to diagnose joint motion function was proposed. The goal of this research was to test the efficacy of the instantaneous axis of rotation for assessment of the distribution of movement within the lumbar spine. The proposed method was evaluated in the biomechanical model. The results showed that the location of instantaneous axis of rotation lowered with increased trunk exertion force, and slightly moved higher with increased trunk angle. Recognizing that abnormal location of the instantaneous axis of rotation correlated with spinal pain, these results suggest potential the location of the instantaneous axis of rotation relates to the risk of low back pain on distributed spinal kinematics. © 2014, The Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

In this article it is argued, that the universe cannot be modeled as a space-time manifold. A theorem of geometry provides that null geodesics on a space-time manifold which begin at the same point with the same initial tangent vector are unique. But in reality, light originating from a single point with a given initial direction does not travel along a unique null geodesic path when a massive object attracts it, in particular when the massive object is in an indefinite location. Therefore, the universe cannot be described as a space-time manifold. It is then argued that the universe is a superposition of space-time manifolds, where the manifolds form a Hilbert space over the complex numbers. ©2011 Published by Elsevier B.V.

Some one-to-one comparisons of the inverted mode of course material delivery versus conventional, in-person lecture mode have shown no significant difference in student learning between the two (Canino1). Experience shows that inverting a course is a time-consuming process. To justify the additional work required to invert courses, the present study looks beyond a direct comparison. Some of the reasons are predicated on the fact that video lectures used for inverted courses tend to be significantly shorter in duration than the associated class time. Others are due to class time being freed up for uses other than lecture. Among other things, these facts present opportunities to cover course material more completely and to better assess student learning compared to conventional lecturer mode. © American Society for Engineering Education, 2016.
