Access Management, the Key to a Portal

Access Management, the Key to a Portal
The authors describe exactly the wroing way to go about creative a subject-specific portal with access to a wide range of materials, but because so many people are interested in this model the paper is of some relevance.

Are Etextbooks Affordable Now?

Are Etextbooks Affordable Now?
Lindsay McKenzie, Inside Higher Ed, 2018/05/01
For most people in the world, the answer to this question is still "no". I have always worked on the principle of a two-times-order-of-magnitude reduction in cost as the standard for digitization. The textbook that used to cost $60 should now cost $0.60. More...

Introducing our manifesto for the new Director of Fair Access and Participation

Résultat de recherche d'images pour "hepi"Today, the Higher Education Policy Institute (HEPI) and Brightside have released a new report, Reaching the parts of society universities have missed: A manifesto for the new Director of Fair Access and Participation. The ideas contained in the report are as diverse as the voices and, beginning today, we will be featuring each entry in a dedicated blog series – showcasing two ideas per day.
To begin the series, Paul Clarke (Head of External Affairs at Brightside) introduces the report and our rationale behind it.
A crucial part of widening participation work is helping prospective students plan for their future: to embrace change with confidence and see the opportunities beyond the apparent obstacles in their path. This has been a challenge for the widening participation sector itself, ever since the Dearing Report in 1997 launched the modern widening participation agenda.

We should be expanding, not restricting, access to college

University Business Magazine logoMost public higher education students don’t have the luxury of attending college far from home or across state lines. They have jobs and family responsibilities to attend to, and the vast majority do not live on campus. In fact, all community college students are commuters, and less than half of our four-year public college students live on campus. Closing campuses would only make it harder for our Massachusetts students, particularly African-American, Latino, and low-income students, to earn a degree. More...
