We present a case report of spontaneous hemothorax associated with neurofibromatosis. On review of the literature, a significant mortality rate of 36% is revealed in addition to a surgical mortality of 33%. Treatment options are reviewed and potential management strategies are discussed.
Increased class sizes are forcing academics to reconsider approaches to setting and marking assessments for their students. Distributed and distance learning are creating some of the biggest changes. Some educators are embracing new technologies but others are more wary of what they do not know. In order to address this issue it is first necessary to… (More)
This paper describes a system for the automated assessment of GUI-based programs. This uses the JEWL library, a set of Java packages designed for use by complete beginners to Java which allows students to build GUI-based programs from the 'Hello world' stage onwards. This paper describes how JEWL has also been designed so that it can be used to assess such… (More)
The Policy Research Working Paper Series disseminates the findings of work in progress to encourage the exchange of ideas about development issues. An objective of the series is to get the findings out quickly, even if the presentations are less than fully polished. The papers carry the names of the authors and should be cited accordingly. The findings,… (More)
This paper describes the design and implementation of a C++ class library which provides timesliced multithreading capabilities for C++ programs. The implementation described here runs under MS-DOS on an IBM PC, but the library could easily be reimplemented for other systems. The library and its source code are freely available by anonymous FTP from a… (More)
This paper describes our experiences of developing and running an introductory module for first year Computing undergraduates. The 'Supporting Technologies' module is intended to equip students with basic computing skills that they will need for the rest of their course. A novel feature of the work discussed here is that several different automated… (More)
As a report of a working group at ITiCSE 2005, this paper represents a vision of the use of XML specifications and tools in algorithm visualization, particularly with regard to supporting user interaction. A detailed description is given of how an interesting event to be visualized is decomposed, combined with interactive questions, narratives, control flow… (More)
This paper describes a web-based system for the online delivery of formal examinations and their automated marking. This system was first used in June 2001 in an end-of-year exam for a first year undergraduate programming course. The outcome of this experiment is also described.
This poster presents our experience of using automated assessment in a programming course given by the Department of Computer Science at Holon Institute of Technology (HIT). The course was given as a first year course as part of an engineering degree which introduces students to programming in C and which teaches them the basics of the imperative… (More)
