Resources that support webfolios

With the transition to a webfolio over the last three years, there was a need to identify areas of support for the application to support its implementation and success for the students. Table 4 provides the interns’ responses to a survey question that highlights the most frequently indicated response for each item. Over the three year period, all cohorts indicated that the full time availability of laptop computers, handouts provided by the University Supervisor and one-on-one meetings with the university supervisor were the most useful resource in the creation of their portfolios. The usage of the online tutorials offered by TaskStream was the least useful.

Student feedback

Students were also asked to provide feedback concerning improvements and problems with the webfolio development process for the next group of interns. Their narrative responses were analyzed and placed into response categories as presented in Tables 5 and 6. While the initial cohort implementing the webfolios indicated an opinion that the process will improve with future implementations and the need for streamlining information, subsequent cohorts consistently reported greater need for more presentations and professional development for interns. These data are reported in Table 5.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
