A Legacy of W.K. Kellogg

About Center for the Advancement of Faculty Excellence's (CAFE) Multimedia Learning Objects Repository website

This website is a collection of interactive multimedia and animations that can be used to enhance a course and bring abstractions to life. The learning objects have been developed in collaboration with faculty on campus and can be shared across multiple disciplines and other institutions. Use this website to search, browse, and preview all the learning objects that are publicly available in our collection.

How to Use the Learning Objects

Mouse over the project card of the learning object that you would like to use. Click the "view" link to get a preview of the object. When you are ready, copy the URL from the "link" text-box to your course or website.

Interested in Creating Something?

If you are faculty at Cal Poly Pomona who would like to request multimedia development, contact us through our request form or through our CoRe Projects Program.

Open Channel Flow

When designing open channels we often determine the channels dimensions assuming that the channel will be flowing at normal depth (dn) or that there is enough channel length for the depth to fully develop to normal depth. The goal of this learning object is to provide the user the opportunity to evaluate the actual water surface profile for a channel sequence.

IPV4 Supernetting

It is possible to combine multiple smaller networks into larger ones through the process known as supernetting. This activity will help you to analyze and summarize groups of CIDR blocks into the fewest possible number of CIDR blocks for a given network.

Cellular Signaling

These animations help identify the 'parts list' and mechanisms that are involved in getting a signal from outside the cell all the way to the nucleus to change gene expression through three fundamentally different types of signal transduction pathways: nuclear receptor signaling, g-protein coupled receptor signaling, and receptor tyrosine kinase pathways.
