How Can We Stop Cheating In Online Courses? | What's New in the WMC? | Scoop.it
While clearly not every student is trying hard to take the slacker route, it's worth noting that picking out the students trying to take this route gets a little more complicated when you move from taking classes in person to taking classes online.

Digital textbooks: Are they a solution or a distraction? | What's New in the WMC? | Scoop.it

"Your bank account and the souls of many trees may soon be rejoicing. With Apple's late January announcement of iBooks 2 (an application where students can access interactive digital textbooks) and Amazon's Kindle devices declining rapidly in price, the days of long lines, expensive textbooks, and back pains might soon be over. But are digital textbooks really the best direction for education to be going? Let's explore some of the pros and cons of digital textbooks in three areas: convenience, cost, and accessibility."

James Flynn says that we are now 'thinking in more sophisticated ways,' Steven Pinker claims that 'we are living in a period of extraordinary intellectual accomplishment,' and Linda Gottfredson argues that 'modern innovations make us feel dumber, because they add to the work our minds must do.' "

The Library Cloud Pros and Cons

The Library Cloud Pros and Cons | What's New in the WMC? | Scoop.it

"Cloud computing can be defined in a number of ways, making it confusing for librarians to understand what is available and what it delivers. Although computer scientists and technologists may have a strict definition of cloud computing involving 'on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources' (see the NIST Definition of Cloud Computing), for non-IT librarians it’s enough to think about cloud computing as library data and services hosted beyond the library’s walls and accessible via the web. More and more electronic resources and software used in libraries are hosted in the cloud."
