Sandra V. Barbosa's curator insight, January 30, 2013 3:50 PM

Qualquer lista dos principais romancistas do século 19, escrita em Inglês, quase certamente incluem Charles Dickens, Thomas Hardy, Herman Melville, de Nathaniel Hawthorne e Mark Twain.
 
Mas eles não aparecem no topo de uma lista dos escritores mais influentes de seu tempo. Em vez disso, um estudo recente descobriu, Jane Austen, autora de "Orgulho e Preconceito", e Sir Walter Scott, o criador de "Ivanhoe", tiveram maior efeito sobre outros autores, em termos de estilo, escrita e temas.

ChrisPegler's curator insight, February 12, 2013 8:02 AM

A nice guide written for Arts disciplines.Thank you to John Casey for bringing it to my attention. It appeared in the Arts Libraries Journal. It is openly available under a CC-BY licence in the ALTO learning and teaching repository

 

http://alto.arts.ac.uk/904/

 

Abstract

This article provides an introduction to the use of the Creative Commons licence system and sets it in a historical, economic and political context. It is written from the perspective of involvement in open educational projects in an Arts university that has used the licences. A description of the fundamental features of the licences and their uses is given together with an outline of how the Creative Commons organisation works and its strategic aims. An assessment of the usefulness of the licences is provided together with a description of the challenges faced in dealing with low levels of legal awareness amongst academics. Practical advice and sources of further information and guidance are offered to help readers implement the licences locally.

"technological development" - there's nothing in MOOCs that wasn't possible 15 years ago. As the panel make clear, its all about economics and social equity. But we should be suspicious of rich Americans saying a budget version of US courses is what the developing world and the US poor needs.
