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.

Search 80,0000 Media History Digital Library Artifacts ~ Free Technology for Teachers | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

by Richard Byrne

 

"The Media History Digital Library is a massive archive of documents about the history film, television, and radio. The library can now be searched and the documents viewed online through MHDL's new site called the Lantern. On Lantern you will find reviews and critiques of movies, books and playbills, many periodicals about the movie, television, and radio industries. Your search can be refined according to date, language, and publication type. You can also browse through collections curated by MHDL.

Applications for Education

"Two thoughts came to mind as I browsed through MHDL's Lantern. First, it's obviously an excellent resource for students studying the history and development of media. Second, through MHDL's Lantern you could find some good examples of how to write a critique. Your students could use those as models for writing their own critiques of movies or even of books."
