JellyNote: Sharing Portal & Database Of Per-Instrument Sheet Music

JellyNote: Sharing Portal & Database Of Per-Instrument Sheet Music | Magis | Scoop.it

Finding song covers, instrumental or vocal, isn’t hard; you can go to YouTube or SoundCloud and find some excellent covers for pretty much any song. They have great entertainment value but if you’re learning to play a new instrument, or would like to learn to play one of your favorite songs, you need something that can be much harder to find: sheet music. JellyNote is a web service that gives you just that. Not only does it allow musicians to upload music, but also their sheet music, and that too for multiple instruments that were used to create the each song. You can get sheet music for any one of the instruments and listen to the instrumental track for that as well.

Writing for a Purpose | LearnEnglish | British Council

Writing for a Purpose | LearnEnglish | British Council | Magis | Scoop.it

From the introduction to this learning resource on writing for EAP students:

 

"If you are studying in a British university you will be required to do a large amount of writing, whatever your subject. Some people distinguish between "essays" and "reports", and you may also know some other names for written assignments. However, sometimes the same name is used for very different types of assignment, and different names are used for very similar types of assignment.

 

Some of these assignments are more common in some disciplines than in others. For example, in business Case Studies are very common, in law Problem Questions are very common, while in history and philosophy Essays are very common.

 

Three thousand examples of proficient British university assignments from more than 30 disciplines, such as business, engineering, law, biology, sociology and history have been collected. These form the BAWE corpus. By analysing these assignments 13 basic Genre Families of student writing can be identified and each one has been given a specific name.

The 13 Genre Families are:

Explanations

Exercises

Literature Surveys

Methodology

Recounts

Research Reports

Essays

Critiques

Event Recounts

Public Engagement

Case Studies

Design Specifications

Problem Questions

Proposals

Steve Kirk's curator insight, July 8, 2013 3:54 AM

This is a great collection of learning resources, designed by Andy Gillet (@UEfAP | http://www.uefap.com/) for the British Council. The resources draw on the BAWE corpus work done by Hilary Nesi and Sheila Gardner, published as Genres across the Disciplines: Student Writing in Higher Education (CUP). Students (and teachers) can learn about the 13 genre families identified and their relevance to UK university study. The website materials are ESRC funded - and free for all to use.

Top 13500+ Science Blogs, ranked by popularity | Magis | Scoop.it

The top Science blogs in the Technorati Blog Directory seem to never run dry of interesting content.

 

The concept of science represents a collection of efforts put forth to expand the knowledge base of mankind, through research made in the fields of natural, formal, social, and applied sciences. The scientific method is at the core of these pursuits, with a general structure involving questions formulated leading to conducted experiments, followed by the results being analyzed and published for all to see.  The future of our understanding is based on this research, and resulting scientific discoveries are communicated through the blogosphere in a speedy fashion.

 

The rate of discovery increases daily, with various blogs reporting on items such as the  condition of the Large Hadron Collider experiment, the expanded usage of stem cells for the benefits of living organisms, and the continued development of nanotechnology for the medical and electronic advances it provides.

LaMP es un software gratuito, compatible con las últimas versiones del sistema operativo Windows, que funciona como un reproductor de vídeos y películas, incorporando soporte para insertar subtítulos. Precisamente estos subtítulos, que debemos añadir nosotros en el clásico formato SRT, son la base empleada para el aprendizaje del idioma que nos interesa.
