60% Of Students Won't Attend A School Without Free WiFi 20 December '11, 07:13pm Follow A recent study by Online Colleges finds that more US college students prefer a hybrid of online/offline education than a pure experience in either direction. This may be a surprise for those that rave about the pros or perils of online classes, but a hybrid learning environment really helps capture the benefits of each. Online universities tend to create a disconnect between students and their school, causing students to miss out on the chance of “bumping elbows” with peers (Cabel Harris, Professor at VCU Brandcenter). Surprisingly, according to research by Educause, only 78% of students feel that wifi is extremely valuable for their academic success, while 60% of students said they wouldn’t attend a college all if it didn’t offer free wifi. As someone with both online and traditional campus experience, this totally resonates with me.

En effet, rien que sur l’année 2012, les défaillances de ces dernières ont connu des taux supérieurs de 50% à ce qu’ils étaient avant la crise de 2008. Or il est inconcevable de fermer aujourd’hui les yeux sur l’hémorragie du tissu économique français, car des entreprises qui ne peuvent plus payer, sont des entreprises en faillite, soit autant d’emplois supprimés et de pouvoir d’achat sacrifié. Pourquoi la TVA interentreprises pèse inutilement sur la trésorerie des entreprises 1.

WorkAwesome | Be More Productive at Work Content Curation: The Art of a Curated Post [Infographic] For content marketers wanting to economically increase content production, content curation is the optimal solution. It benefits both publishers and audiences—who appreciate expertly selected, third party, independent content. In fact, according to Curata’s study, best-in-class marketers use a content marketing mix of 65 percent created content and 25 percent curated content. But many people interested in content curation—and some who are already curating—may still have lingering questions about best practices. What should a curated post look like? How much of the original article should I include? To help answer some of these questions and outline the anatomy of curated piece of content, we created “The Art of a Curated Post.” 1.
