Joi Ito on Creative Commons; Mobile Design Tips; Students as Change Agents; and More in Summer 2011 Issue of JISC Inform

Direct to JISC Inform; Summer 2011 (Issue 31)

From the Editorial:

In this issue we look at how students are taking an active part in their course design and delivery which in turn is increasing their satisfaction levels. We catch up with Joi Ito about his involvement with Creative Commons and how opening up resources through Creative Commons licences is unleashing resources onto the internet offering learners a greater understanding of the courses they will be studying.

The principles of mobile web education remain the same – but we have some technical and pedagogical advice to help you make the most of the latest technologies. Students demand seamless access, quick admin and fast services. JISC supports this by providing the invisible skin that binds all these systems together; we take a look at international projects such as the Olympics and the e-InfraNet initiative to see lessons learned.
