Project Gutenberg Australia
Ebooks are digitised versions of paper books. That is to say, they are computer files. The ebooks available from Project Gutenberg Australia, all of which are free of charge, are usually provided in 'txt' or 'html' format and can be read on any personal computer or laptop, using a text editor such as Notepad, which comes bundled with every copy of Microsoft Windows, or with a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox. However, when this basic method is used to read ebooks one is not able to bookmark pages for future reference or jump to a particular chapter from the Table of Contents. These shortcomings, have been overcome by the development of software specifically designed to read ebooks on personal computers and laptops. Good examples are Tom's eTextReader from Fellnersoft and yBook and yRead from Spacejock Software.

The Do It Yourself Scholar Updated June. 5, 2012 At last count there were more than 150 colleges and universities featured on iTunes U, the section of Apple’s iTunes music store devoted to higher education.

Sadly, many of the colleges offer little more than online brochures, with virtual campus tours and the like. (Newcomers can get up to speed by reading Getting started.) So here is a guide to the good stuff. Scientists: Earth Endangered by New Strain of Fact-Resistant Humans MINNEAPOLIS (The Borowitz Report)—Scientists have discovered a powerful new strain of fact-resistant humans who are threatening the ability of Earth to sustain life, a sobering new study reports. The research, conducted by the University of Minnesota, identifies a virulent strain of humans who are virtually immune to any form of verifiable knowledge, leaving scientists at a loss as to how to combat them. “These humans appear to have all the faculties necessary to receive and process information,” Davis Logsdon, one of the scientists who contributed to the study, said.

What is global education? The heart of global education is enabling young people to participate in shaping a better, shared future for the world. Global education emphasises the unity and interdependence of human society, developing a sense of self and appreciation of cultural diversity, affirmation of social justice and human rights, as well as building peace and actions for a sustainable future in different times and places. Global education promotes positive values and assists students to take responsibility for their actions and to see themselves as global citizens who can contribute to a more peaceful, just and sustainable world. Australian global educators place particular emphasis on developing relationships with our neighbours in the Asia–Pacific and Indian Ocean regions. Global Perspectives, A framework for global education in Australian schools is a concise, practical and philosophical guide to including a global perspective across the curriculum.
