Pollution And Pollutants
Authors: Paul Cox and Nigel Freestone

Pollution is the undesirable introduction of pollutants (contaminants) into the natural environment (land, air and water) and can have an adverse affect on human health. This resource provides an introduction to pollution and pollutants. The classification and distribution of pollutants is also considered. A number of self-assessment questions are provided to allow you to check your new knowledge. The material comes in Word format and its HTML equivalent. The pollutants.htm file includes two images (poll.gif and ld50.gif) and an answers page (SAQ_Answers.htm) related to it that need to be put in the same folder as the pollutants.htm file.

Student presentations using video

Originally posted on: Student presentations using video:

Karl Flowers, Senior Lecturer, Institute for Creative Leather
Technology assesses his students through presentations and has often
found that it is difficult to schedule face-to-face time slots where all
the required parties can make it. Allowing his students to
independently record their presentations and submit them through NILE’s
video streaming tool, Kaltura, overcomes scheduling issues, enables more
use of technology for the students and enables sharing good practice
between year groups.

workshop. Read the case study to see how these activities have helped to
link his distance learning students with his learners on campus – and
also helped them to improve their writing skills.
