Can't quite work out how this is different from the regular coursesites platform. Seem very similar. This one if slightly less cluttered perhaps?

Whilst doing the ironing at the weekend I caught what I thought was an interesting programme from BBC Two created in conjunction with The Open University. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01zxm9b

In the first episode (only 3 days left to view), "Jacques uncovers the importance of product lifespan – revealing how some products are still made to break, how fashion and aspiration are used by companies like IKEA and Apple to keep us constantly ‘upgrading’ – and how even brand new goods get sent for recycling."

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p01zxmrv/the-men-who-made-us-spend-episode-1

Some might find it interesting.
Why do we buy what we buy? Jacques Peretti investigates consumerism and the people who try and shape the public's appetites

Tip: Share Google Docs using /preview instead of /edit URL
#cicsltt #TELshef
By default, the URL you see for a Google Doc ends in /edit. This is the 'edit view' of that document, whether you have provided editing rights or not. If you just want someone to read your shared document without editing or commenting then send the link with /preview replacing /edit at the end ...

The speaker on one recent BBC Radio 4 Four Thought programme was Dr Mark Graham. He presented some insights into the geographical information divides that exist across the planet.
The speaker on one recent programme was Dr Mark Graham. He presented some insights into the geographical information divides that exist across the planet. For example, did you know that the USA and UK together publish more scientific journals than the rest of the world combined?

Talking with +Andrew Tattersall I'm interested in finding out if anyone has any experience with pico or micro projection units that can easily be connected via USB to laptops or possibly mobile devices for impromptu presentations. Any comments or feedback, good or bad, would be much appreciated. Cheers.
