 students, online courses, massive open online course (MOOC)/MOOCs, Scientific American:  Enrich but do not replace? 

One in five science students surveyed by Nature and Scientific American has participated in a MOOC—and most would do so again

Stefan Kühn studies biochemistry at Stellenbosch University in the wine country of South Africa’s Western Cape province. He was working on his master’s thesis last year and writing in his usual way, which he describes as messy and free-flowing. Then he took a massive open online course (MOOC) from Duke University called Think Again: How to Reason and Argue. It changed the way he approached his thesis. “It taught me what a good argument is, how to construct it, how to avoid general fallacies,” Kühn says. “I started the course because of personal interest (I love a lively debate) and was pleasantly surprised when I realized I was using it for my write-ups as well.”

Sept. 10, Apple’s Big iPhone Event, Ina Fried, Mobile, AllThingsD:  It would take a lot for me to reup …maybe that is the problem.  

Much of the speculation there has centered on the usual kinds of camera and processor enhancements, as well as the likelihood of a fingerprint sensor. That has been expected ever since Apple acquired Authentec last year.

Naturally, any new phones will be running iOS 7, which has been in testing since its announcement at Apple’s developer conference in June. The new software includes a radical redesign of the overall look of the iPhone’s menus and icons, but the other new features are largely incremental updates, such as improved notifications, better photo-organizing abilities and additional capabilities for developers.
