Extremely useful! Thanks for sharing!

This is the easiest way to go. It's not scholarly, but it's reminding users that the images have been created by others and granting permission to be used.

World Library of Science

World Library of Science | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
World Library Of Science is an open online teaching/learning portal combining high quality educational articles authored by editors at NPG with technology-based community features to fuel a global exchange of scientific insights, teaching practices, and study resources. World Library Of Science currently contains articles in the field of genetics, and is intended for college undergraduate faculty and students. Future plans involve extension of World Library Of Science to other fields within the life sciences, as well as to other audiences.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

The World Library of Science wants to especially support students in underdeveloped regions by equalizing learning opportunities, improving the quality of teaching and learning and promoting the use of Open Educational Resources.

At launch the World Library of Science features over 300 articles, 25 eBooks, and over 70 videos from the publishers of Nature. Through the portal students can join classes and create groups to connect with other learners and teachers.

Move over MOOCs – Collaborative MOOC 2.0 is coming

Move over MOOCs – Collaborative MOOC 2.0 is coming | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Massive open online courses – MOOCs – offered by top universities have expanded worldwide over the last three years, gaining students globally for courses designed in the United States and elsewhere and disseminated globally on platforms like Coursera, edX and the British-based FutureLearn.

Alfredo Corell's insight:

Many conventional MOOCs are developed and designed for Western teaching and learning experiences, says Auh, the lead project designer for MOOC 2.0. “But the general consensus here [among those working on MOOC 2.0] is that MOOCs education must be a collective effort from all parts of the world.” 

What is important, according to Auh, is that to avoid a “type of neo-colonialism”, receiving countries must collaborate in devising the MOOCs their students will study. 

“The stance of MOOC 2.0 is higher education should find ways to address the needs of those at the bottom of the pyramid while being sensitive to their culture,” Auh told University World News.

2. It requires no registration.

3. It provides educators and students with an intuitive, easy-to-learn photo editing tool.

Each of the 3 tools is described and there is a list of pros and cons to help you choose.

And the three tools are:

Pag 95 "UNA MIRADA HACIA LA EXCELENCIA DESDE LAS TICS"

por Luis A. Sanz, J. Carlos Aragón, J.R. Regueiro y A. Corell


Esta publicación contiene las diferentes contribuciones (ponencias, paneles, grupos de discusión, y comunicaciones) presentadas en el V Foro Internacional de Innovación Universitaria celebrado en Bogotá (Colombia). El tema del congreso refleja un contexto mundial en el que la multiculturalidad está presente como realidad viva y en muchos casos doliente, y para otros como realidad problemática.

En la publicación se recogen diversas experiencias y reflexiones sobre esta temática presentando buenas prácticas en los diferentes ejes tratados en este V foro: la dimensión curricular y pedagógica, la dimensión de la responsabilidad social universitaria, y la dimensión basada en la investigación y las Tecnologías aplicadas a la educación universitaria. Los tres ejes ya permanentes en el trabajo que viene desarrollando el FIIU, constatan la relevancia y las aportaciones sistemáticas que se vienen produciendo sobre los mismos, enriqueciendo las perspectivas que desde la visión de las universidades se están trabajando como objeto de estudio.


El libro está disponible para su visualización y descarga gratuita: - desde SlideShare (clic en el botón Save) [Acceder] - descarga directa desde la web del FIIU [Descargar]
