Students looking for the same ease of access and the opportunity to apply their study time towards a degree or certificate program might want to consider courses that can lead to an alternative form of credit. For far less than the cost of enrolling in a traditional class, Education Portal offers hundreds of online courses that allow students to start working their way towards real college credit.

Community of Research 2.0 cc: Anne Bermüller/ Eine teilweise stichpunktartige Sammlung von Erkenntnissen und Fragen, die ich hierüber wieder aufgreifen, ausweiten, beantworten kann (hopefully) Digitale Kopien sind (unter bestimmten Voraussetzungen) nur für Bücher erlaubt, die seit dem Jahr 2005 erschienen sind! Kopien ins Internet einzustellen sei „außerhalb der Wissenschaft“ nur sehr bedingt möglich – versteh ich nicht? Ich würde mir die Frage selbst wie folgt beantworten: Wissenschaftliche Artikel, die ich online stelle und in den ich Quellen korrekt angebe? Dabei stellt sich mir gleich die nächste Frage: Woher sehe ich, ob z.B. Ich habe mich auf die Suche begeben: Als erstes bin ich von der COER Seite auf die You-Tube Seite gewechselt, wo ich weitere Infos zum CC vermutete. Was mir aber nicht gelang, war nähere Infos zur Form der CC-Lizenz zu finden – der Link informiert allgemein über Creative Commons. Also etwas gelernt, aber neue Fragen noch offen. To be continued

Sir Ronald Cohen: Venture Capitalist to Social Capitalist Sir Ronald Cohen is one of the founding fathers of modern venture capitalism. Now he is advocating a revolutionary new approach to narrow the widening gap between rich and poor, and wants investors to replace the “invisible hand” with the “invisible heart”. On the face of it modern day venture capitalism would seem to be the polar opposite of social enterprise. Venture capitalists are in business to make a quick – often anonymous – profit on their investments and then sell out; social entrepreneurs put profit second to the needs of their social stakeholders and are in it for the long-term. So it is perhaps surprising that Sir Ronald Cohen, who founded APAX Partners thirty years ago, should now be a cheerleader for social enterprise. Sir Ronald Cohen arrived in the U.K. as a refugee from Egypt and after studying at Oxford and Harvard Business School entered the world of finance. Widening Wealth Gap He concluded that there were two reasons why this social inequality had persisted.

Una universidad en el P2P El sistema universitario no responde de forma adecuada a las demandas sociales. Es la premisa de los creadores de la primera universidad P2P, la Peer-to-Peer University ( una comunidad educativa en línea inspirada en la filosofía P2P (intercambio libre y gratuito de contenidos en la Red) que ofrece cursos sobre materias tan diversas como desarrollo web o realización de campañas electorales. "Si estudias programación web en la universidad, para el momento en que salgas al mercado laboral la tecnología que has aprendido se ha quedado obsoleta", resume Philipp Schmidt, cofundador de la P2PU, de nacionalidad alemana pero residente en Johanesburgo (Sudáfrica). "En nuestros cursos, la discusión es pública, y cualquiera puede intervenir y proponer nuevos contenidos", explica Schmidt. También cualquiera puede ser profesor (Schmidt habla de "líderes" o "facilitadores"), ya que no hay requerimientos de currículo. ¿Cómo se aseguran de las capacidades de esos facilitadores?
