A landscape painting by Renoir, purportedly bought by Marcia Fuqua at a flea market for $7, belongs to the Baltimore Museum of Art, from which it had been stolen in 1951, accoriding to a January 10, 2014 ruling from the federal court in Virginia. So ended a wild tale that began July 27, 2012 when Fuqua brought On the Shore of the Seine, to the Potomack Company auction house in Arlington, Virginia, saying she found it in a box of random items at a Shenandoah Valley flea market. She made an appointment with the auction house because of the “Renoir” plaque on the frame, according to Elizabeth Wainstein, the director of the auction house. Potomack determined the work was authentic and checked the Art Loss Register and the FBI’s stolen art website to confirm that it had not been reported lost or stolen. A spokeswoman for the museum points out that the FBI was not concentrating on stolen art in the 1950s and registers of lost art did not exist.

The book will be the first in a series of low cost interactive e-books that teachers will be able to download in different formats and take round with them on iPads, e-readers or as PDF and ePub on their computer. These books will always be available for just-in-time learning support and for new teaching ideas.
In this paper from the field we will present an example of a Social Learning Analytics Tool to visualize real-time discussion activities in a MOOC environment. Practitioners and researchers can read how to implement and use such a SLA tool as a plugin in practice.
