The modelling of the case(More)
The scenarization of educational activities, especially those that are going to take place within elearning platforms, has for a number of years represented a major challenge for groups working to favor the emergence of educational standards. In this paper we describe a meta-model, LDL (Learning Design Language), to formalize scenarized activities. We(More)

The dermal papilla (DP) consists of a discrete population of specialized fibroblasts that are important in the morphogenesis of the hair follicle in the embryo and in the control of the hair growth cycle in the adult. This mitotically quiescent and long-lived cell population expresses gene products that promote cell survival such as Bcl-2, and thus normally(More)
