Elite Online Courses for Cash and Credit

"A consortium of 10 top–tier universities will soon offer fully online, credit–bearing undergraduate courses through a partnership with 2U, a company that facilitates online learning.

Any students enrolled at an 'undergraduate experience anywhere in the world' will be eligible to take the courses, according to Chip Paucek, the CEO of 2U, which until recently was called 2tor. The first courses are slated to make their debut in the fall.

After a year in which the top universities in the world have clambered to offer massive open online courses (MOOCs) for no credit, this new project marks yet another turning point in online education. It is the first known example of top universities offering fully online, credit–bearing courses to undergraduates who are not actually enrolled at the institutions that are offering them."

Disney and YouTube deal to produce original content

"Disney Interactive Media and YouTube, a division of Google, will spend a combined $10 million to $15 million on original video series; those shorts will be produced by Disney and distributed on a co–branded channel on Disney.com and YouTube. The channel will also include amateur video culled from the torrent uploaded to YouTube daily.

The Disney–YouTube partnership follows YouTube's announcement late last month that it planned to create dozens of channels featuring comedians, sports stars, musicians and other entertainers. It is also offering cash advances to prospective producers that totaled more than $100 million, according to people with knowledge of the plan but who were not authorized to speak publicly. The investments in the channels reflect Google's belief that the Internet is the third phase of the television business, after network TV (with a few channels) and cable TV (with hundreds). "

Cross Border Higher Education: Vangelis Tsiligiris' Paper.li newspaper

"I have been researching transnational higher education partnerships for the past 5 or so years. During this time I have realised the growing importance of CBHE and the increasing interest of other people in it. Thus, I thought that it would be a good idea to collect the most recent posts in the area of CBHE."

Enabling entrepreneurial organisational culture within art and design

"Gibbs, Knapper and Piccinin (2009) describe a perceived shift of organisational culture over time from, collegial to bureaucratic to corporate and finally to a fourth entrepreneurial culture characterised 'by a focus on competence and an orientation to the outside world, involving continuous learning in a turbulent context. The management style involves devolved and dispersed leadership. Decisionmaking is flexible and emphasises accountable, professional expertise. Students are seen as partners.' (p. 6). UCA is considering whether an entrepreneurial culture is most suited to its ambitions for increased internal and external collaboration and if so the associated consequences for the working relationships between leaders and academics, and the degree of academic autonomy.

If universities were to accept a need to change their cultures and become more entrepreneurial, then it is possible that this might lead to confusion amongst staff as they experience aspects of different types of culture. Gibbs, Knapper and Piccinin (2009) note that this model of four organisational cultures is oversimplified and that is possible for 'individuals to hold conflicting perceptions of the organisational culture at the same time' (p. 6). Nevertheless, the model does seem to be useful in helping to reflect on the type of culture that might be desirable for a university offering art and design subjects."

Building Information Modelling

The building industry "is made up of many relatively small businesses that come together on a contract basis for a single project," [Kristine] Fallon [of Kristine Fallon Associates, Inc.] said. "It's all based on ad–hoc partnerships. BIM really changes those relationships, and you need a structure to accommodate that.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) has the potential to offer the Architecture/Engineering/Consulting industry significant benefit. While architectural and engineering artefacts have traditionally been developed through repetitive design and re–design regimes (forcing businesses to often re–create existing artefacts), BIM has the potential to allow partners to evolve shared design artefacts through blueprint stages to fabrication and construction.BIM is a process where digital 3D models created by architects are able to be re–used and extended across all engineering contexts (by each business partner) within a given construction project.
(David Becker, ZDNet)
