Innovations in Higher Education? Hah! - The Chronicle Review - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Innovations in Higher Education? Hah! - The Chronicle Review - The Chronicle of Higher Education | The e-learning Professional | Scoop.it

"

You can hardly mention higher education today without hearing the word "innovation," or its understudies "change," "reinvention," "transformation."

 

It reminds me of the old joke.

Q. How many academics does it take to change a light bulb?

A. Change? Change? Who said anything about CHANGE?

3 Major Publishers Sue Open-Education Textbook Start-Up - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education

3 Major Publishers Sue Open-Education Textbook Start-Up - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | The e-learning Professional | Scoop.it

Open-education resources have been hailed as a trove of freely available information that can be used to build textbooks at virtually no cost. But a copyright lawsuit filed last month presents a potential roadblock for the burgeoning movement.

 

[I am considering this. If I remake a film, using new a new cast and similar yet different locations, scenes and lines are there not rights issues involved? Is that not why authors sell the movie rights? How does this compare to sampling orignal content the way music artists may do? Is a textbook like a story, in which case I might consider that someone owns the rights to tell this story in different mediums. But the ideas within that story including some of the imagery may come from a history passed down through generations and you cannot own that.

 

I this instance I might consider that the using alternative bear images to illustrate a point may be acceptable if they are the most suitable representation of the idea. Using the same but alternatively sourced images throughout speaks of a lack of originality]

25 (Free) 3D Modeling Applications You Should Not Miss | The e-learning Professional | Scoop.it
Technically, 3 Dimensions refers to objects that are constructed on three plans (X, Y and Z). The process of creating 3D graphics can be divided into three basic phases: 3D modeling, 3D animation and 3D rendering.

Creating 3D models is not easy and the software alone can cost a fortune Therefore, we thought it might be interesting to check out the availability of open source 3D modeling tools out there.
