Iron Dane Richards's curator insight, November 9, 2013 7:10 AM

Great Info for Any Business Owner or Marketing Manager

Ahmed Alkandari's curator insight, November 24, 2014 9:03 PM

Google Apps are a cloud-based, hosted service that allows you to integrate a variety of Google products (Gmail, Drive, Calendar, and others). Applications work very well with accounting and finance, productivity, project management, and sales and marketing. All of these comes under Google Apps Marketplace. 

Here is a list of tools that the writer have reviewed and recommend.

It was really exciting reading the scoop. It added to my knowledge about Google Apps a lot. All of thees apps and tools are useful to use and access. It helps protect your information and data. It also allows you to monitor your data and your social networks. After reading this scoop, I really advice people to use these apps and to benefit from them. It's also amazing how Google made them all in one as a cloud, were you don't have to worry about loosing informations or data. 

Moreover, most of these apps and tools are free to use. Even for the ones that you have to pay for them, it's actually not expensive and really worth what are you paying for. 

Technology is really developing more and more and it's really important to keep up with thees developments and changes because they are helping us managing our life and makes our life easier.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, January 10, 2013 12:44 PM

This quote from Tony Bates sets an interesting stage for Koller's Ted Talk on Coursera.


"However I’m probably going to suffer the same kind of fate of the Russian female punk band, Pussy Riot, by spitting on the altar of MOOCs, but this TED talk captures for me all that is both right and wrong about the MOOCs being promoted by the elite US universities. Let me start by saying that I actually applaud Daphne Koller and her colleagues for developing massive open online MOOCs. Any attempt to make the knowledge of some of the world’s leading experts available to anyone free of charge is an excellent endeavour. If only it stopped there. What I object to is the hubris and misleading claims that are evident in this TED video. As someone once said about one of Sigmund Freud’s lectures, what is new is not true, and what is true is not new. -

Science Guide: "Dijkgraaf: MOOC's bevrijden" | Feeling Younger | Scoop.it

Via verstelle
Piet Kommers's insight:

First order effect is a revitalized quality awareness among traditional university lecturers. Secondly, the need for institutes to revise their business model: How to attract the better students to oncampus courses and its face-to-face collaborative learning?

Finally: MOOCs may decrease the period of studying abroad and hence decrease the amount of cultural/ideological cross fertilization amongst youngsters. This may trouble East-West / North-South understanding finally.

verstelle's curator insight, June 25, 2013 11:03 AM

"Dijkgraaf schetst wat hij ziet als consequenties, ten goede en mogelijk ook ten kwade. “Dit zal grote gevolgen hebben voor het universitaire landschap, dat nu zo’n vierduizend instellingen in Europa kent, met eenzelfde aantal in de Verenigde Staten. Het zou mij niet verbazen als deze kennisbevrijdingsbeweging juist de verschillen tussen de kennisinstellingen zal doen toenemen.”

Changing Course Ten Years of Tracking Online Education in the United States

Piet Kommers's insight:

• Only 2.6 percent of higher education institutions currently have a MOOC,
another 9.4 percent report MOOCs are in the planning stages.
• The majority of institutions (55.4%) report they are still undecided about
MOOCs, while under one-third (32.7%) say they have no plans for a MOOC.
• Academic leaders remain unconvinced that MOOCs represent a sustainable
method for offering online courses, but do believe they provide an important
means for institutions to learn about online pedagogy.
• Academic leaders are not concerned about MOOC instruction being
accepted in the workplace, but do have concerns that credentials for MOOC
completion will cause confusion about higher education degrees.
