Apple iBooks Author limits Authors autonomy

Yesterday, Apple launched Apple iBooks Author, an easy way for authors to create digital editions of their books. But you should think twice, before you start to use the tool. According to ZDNet author Ed Bott, there are several traps in the EULA, the legal conditions to use the software: If you want to sell your digital publication created with Apple iBooks author, you have to do it via Apple's iBook store and Apple might refuse anytime to list your publication without any liability.

Out today – the second in a series of reports from The Open University that provide a straightforward introduction to innovations in education and look at the implications of these innovations for the theory and practice of teaching, learning and assessment.
This second report, 'Innovating Pedagogy 2013', revisits four subjects covered in last year’s report – MOOCs, badges to accredit learning, learning analytics and seamless learning – and highlights six new pedagogies.
- Crowd learning harnesses the local knowledge of many people to answer questions or address immediate problems.
- Digital scholarship enhances scholarly practice through networked technologies.
- Geo-learning uses the location detection of smartphones to provide context-based learning materials.
- Learning from gaming exploits the power of digital games for education.
- Maker culture describes the informal networks of people who share practical learning, motivated by fun and self-fulfilment.
- Citizen inquiry fuses the creative knowledge building of inquiry-based learning with the mass civic engagement of volunteer activism.
