Why It’s Difficult For Your Library to Stock Ebooks

Why It’s Difficult For Your Library to Stock Ebooks | Teaching and Learning Technologies | Scoop.it

Fe Angela M. Verzosa's curator insight, July 1, 2014 9:23 AM

The big issue here is: nobody who buys an ebook—library, consumer, or otherwise—actually owns it upon purchase. Instead, they purchase a license to access the content. The distinction might seem like a small one, but it has presented publishers with the opportunity to explore new ways of working with libraries in the digital age. And in so doing, it’ has caused massive headaches for libraries in their attempt to broaden their ebook collections.

The promise of digital badges for alternative credentials and skills pathways has not been lost on higher education; yet, there are many concerns—from business, faculty, and students—on the design, and use, of these badges for real meaning.

The focus of this special issue of INNOQUAL is on MOOCs. It consists of five research papers and four practice-based papers, which together provide a useful summary of some of the state of the art of research and development of MOOCs. Quality in relation to MOOCs is a key issue and the subject of much debate.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, September 22, 2014 7:13 PM

"Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are an example of a disruptive technology and are clearly innovative in terms of scale and the level of heated discussion around whether or not they are innovative pedagogically. Academic and mainstream press covering the phenomenon is divided as to whether MOOCs will be valuable to hundreds or thousands of participants. Within this editorial we give a short introduction to the topic of the special issue “Quality in MOOCs” as well as to the contributions, along with the papers related to the INNOQUAL journal’s permanent themes."

What is open education? | Opensource.com

What is open education? | Opensource.com | Teaching and Learning Technologies | Scoop.it

Open education is a philosophy about the way people should produce, share, and build on knowledge.

Proponents of open education believe everyone in the world should have access to high-quality educational experiences and resources, and they work to eliminate barriers to this goal. Such barriers might include high monetary costs, outdated or obsolete materials, and legal mechanisms that prevent collaboration among scholars and educators.
