A new role for ‘old world’ universities - University World News

In the past 10 years, the European higher education landscape has undergone enormous changes. Many of these have been directly linked with, or driven by, the massification of higher education and the need to efficiently qualify the workforce and equip it with the skills required by a competitive global market.

University leaders want more Canadians to study abroad

University leaders want more Canadians to study abroad | Education Research | Scoop.it

Universities have been vocal about their ambitions to lure more international students to Canada, but they are quietly worried far too few Canadian students go abroad for their own formative experiences. Federal and provincial governments are eager to market Canada as a higher-education destination. They feel international students make the classroom more diverse and globally oriented, while also attracting new revenue. (The Global and Mail)

New Ebook Publishing Tools Coming in 2012 | Forbes

New Ebook Publishing Tools Coming in 2012 | Forbes | Education Research | Scoop.it

From the article: "The release by Apple of iBooks Author last month begins a year that will see the release of several new tools focused on helping people to create, publish and track their ebooks.... 

 

That’s fine insofar as it goes, but if you’re an author or publisher wanting to reach as many people as possible, with limited time and resources to repurpose the same content for different marketplaces, iBooks Author isn’t a great help."

 

What's interesting instead is the fact that in 2012 we will see more and more tools that will allow you to convert, format and publish your content to ebooks on multiple and competing platforms.

 

There are several services providing this and more springing up. 

 

Not only.

 

You will have tools to track stats of how many ebooks are downloaded and purchased as well as better tools to write, edit, revise and format your ebook.

 

Informative. 7/10
