Google gives Quickoffice away for free +10 GB extra on Google Drive - AndroidPIT | Modern Higher Education | Scoop.it
Google has just announced that its Quickoffice app will now be available to all users for free. There's also a limited time only offer to get 25 GB free on Google Drive.

 

As you may already know, Google acquired Quickoffice a year ago. But perhaps you didn't realize that the search monster has decided to give the app away for free. Thanks Google! The app was originally free only to business customers, but as of now, the office suite is free to everyone.

Víctor Xepiti Eme's curator insight, May 15, 2013 8:47 AM

"Open Educational Resources (OER) – that is, teaching, learning and research materials that their owners make free to others to use, revise and share – offer a powerful means of expanding the reach and effectiveness of worldwide education. Those resources can be full courses, course materials, modules, textbooks, streaming videos, software, and other materials and techniques used to promote and support universal access to knowledge.

This book, initiated by the UNESCO/COL Chair in OER, is one in a series of publications by the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) examining OER. It describes the movement in detail, providing readers with insight into OER’s significant benefits, its theory and practice, and its achievements and challenges. The 16 chapters, written by some of the leading international experts on the subject, are organised into four parts by theme:

OER in Academia – describes how OER are widening the international community of scholars, following MIT’s lead in sharing its resources and looking to the model set by the OpenCourseWare ConsortiumOER in Practice – presents case studies and descriptions of OER initiatives underway on three continentsDiffusion of OER – discusses various approaches to releasing and “opening” content, from building communities of users that support lifelong learning to harnessing new mobile technologies that enhance OER access on the InternetProducing, Sharing and Using OER – examines the pedagogical, organisational, personal and technical issues that producing organisations and institutions need to address in designing, sharing and using OER"....

What Is the Difference between Online Learning and Distance ... | Modern Higher Education | Scoop.it
