Scientists are inquiring the nature and Engineers are designing artificial technologies. Scientists are obtaining knowledge and engineers are using knowledge to design artificial systems. However, the technology is not enough for scientist to understand the nature and the data is not enough for engineers to design artificial systems.
Their common goal is solving the problems in the world and making life easier. To achieve the goal, both obtaining knowledge and engineering it to produce artificial ones are vital. Their need to each other is increasing and destroying the boundaries between the fields. Herewith, new field are emerging like Nanotechnology and Synthetic Biology. The fields are suggesting innovative artificial solutions to our problems. Synthetic Biology is designing and constructing new biological parts, devices, and systems not the lives from scratch, and re-designing existing biological systems for useful purposes according to SynBio community http://syntheticbiology.org. The parts, devices, and systems are suggesting innovative solution for a broad application area from Bioenergy to Biomedicine. Day by day new ones are emerging.
As the fields emerge, the knowledge to transfuse to next generations and between the knowledge staff is also increasing and getting more complicated. To overcome the problem we are designing a visual learning environment to give people basics about the field by uniting and improving number of resources.
We are using multimedia Learning Approach and developing visuals to promote the learning. To visualize the concepts and provide self experience we are developing 2D, 3D animations, and simulations. To emphasize some texts and to apply dual coding principles we are using narration. Finally, to provide self test about basics we are asking a few questions on quizzes. Anyone interested in the field can learn the basics by following the guides in SYLLABUS.
