15 Sep 2011 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Lynn Zentner, Gerhard Klimeck, Krishna P. C. Madhavan, George B. Adams III
Science gateways utilizing HUBzero technology provide the means for rapid dissemination and use of research results by a global research and education community, extending resources that used to be available to an elite few to a broader and more diverse community. Users may range from educators and their students to the computational research community, experimentalists, and a wide variety of users in related and peripheral fields.
Exploring the Impact of nanoHUB.org on Research and Education Users
15 Sep 2011 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Gerhard Klimeck, George B. Adams III, Krishna P. C. Madhavan, Nathan Travis Denny, Michael Zentner, Swaroop S, Lynn Zentner, Diane Beaudoin, Mehdi Salmani Jelodar
With over 170,000 users in the last 12 months and over 2,300 resources including nearly 200 simulation tools, nanoHUB.org has established itself as the world’s largest Nanotechnology User Facility. Critical attributes for the success of such science gateways are open access, ease of use, utterly dependable operation, and diverse, high-quality content. Through nanoHUB.org, these attributes are realized, resulting in significant global knowledge transfer among researchers and from research to education. The impact and success of a science gateway can be measured and evaluated utilizing a variety of usage statistics, usage patterns, and analysis of citation data.

10 Feb 2015 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Krishna Madhavan
This presentation introduces ENGR 132 students to nanoHUB. It also lays out the basic requirements for the ENGR 132 project (Spring 2015). The presentation includes a basic explanation of what a mathematical model is and its connection to a simulation.
Embedding science and technology education into students' lifestyles and technology choices
06 Dec 2005 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Krishna Madhavan
Learning experiences of the future will be multi-sensory, engage technologies and significant
computational power continuously and invisibly, and will be completely engaging. The
emergence of highly cross-disciplinary fields like nanoscale science and technology,
bioinformatics, and cyberinfrastructure sciences has brought into sharp relief the need to
transcend computational, perceptual, and imagination walls in order to educate future
generations of students. There have been repeated calls in various national reports for the need to
bridge discovery and learning in non-trivial ways. In order to reach the current and future
generation of students - the aptly labeled Gen-Z or the digital generation - information
technology needs to be at the heart of educational efforts and play more than an add-on role.
Simply put, we need to rethink education ground-up.
