Gliksman runs iPads for Education, a Ning network that has drawn several thousand educators and other people interested in exploring the use of iPads in schools.

KooBits 4.0 is an all-new innovative free e-book reader software that enables you to conveniently view, organize and manage all your e-books in commonly used formats such as PDF, ePub, even those interactive e-books with animation and multimedia in KBJ format.

KooBits 4.0 not only has the basic functions as an universal e-book viewer and e-book manager, like organizing a library of e-book collection, purchasing from an online e-bookstore, highlighting in various colours, annotating with symbols or icons using the stamp feature and bookmarking, but enables interactive functions such as page flipping and game elements as well. With KooBits e-book reader, games are weaved into the story plot and incorporated into the e-book to enable easier understanding of the story with the flow of game while reading.

The Best And Worst Master's Degrees For Jobs - Forbes

The Best And Worst Master's Degrees For Jobs - Forbes | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it
Thousands of new college grads will enter the workforce this year, but with unemployment at 8.2% and underemployment near 18%, many will put off the taxing job search process and opt out of the weak job market to pursue graduate degrees.
R.Conrath, Ed.D.'s insight:

"Library and information science degree-holders bring in $57,600 mid-career, on average. Common jobs for them are school librarian, library director and reference librarian, and there are expected to be just 8.5% more of them by 2020. The low pay rank and estimated growth rank make library and information science the worst master’s degree for jobs right now."

FAQ - TextbookRevolution

R.Conrath, Ed.D.'s insight:

"In some cases, a digital textbook can provide functionality a printed version cannot. When this isn't the case, we should be able to create a PDF from the digital version. If we don't have the permission to create that PDF ourselves, and the publisher will not, then we run into some problems"

Interesting concept .... I like that you can "moderate" other peoples changes (i.e., choose to accept or reject them). It would be interesting to see how the "ask an expert" for editing advise works too.

jaap den dulk's curator insight, April 1, 2013 3:36 AM

Very intuitive design. Promising stuff for collaborative writers.

John Purificati's curator insight, April 6, 2013 7:50 AM

This has a lot of potential. A great way to allow teachers to collaborate with students on their writing assignments.

The World’s Largest Repository of Free Online Learning Tutorials

The World’s Largest Repository of Free Online Learning Tutorials | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

Here’s a common scenario. Someone emails and asks about an elearning tutorial I have on the blog. It’s not always easy to find the specific tutorial buried in a given post. In fact, there are many times I either forgot that I had created that tutorial or I can’t recall where it’s at either. I know. It’s part of getting older.

 

Today I am going to fix that. I have listed every blog post that has a video tutorial that shows how to create something related to online learning. So, if you’re just getting started with building online learning courses (or new to the blog), now you have a handy resource with links to all sorts of rapid elearning tutorials.
