  • More on Distance Education Journal Ra... Both academics and administrators love to argue about the value (impact) of their academic work.  The old adage of “Publish or Perish” still has currency. Despite the many distribution opportunities besides and beyond publishing in scholarly journals, the bean counters (myself included) love citation indexes. The basic idea is that the more your work is [...]
  • What the FOLC is new in this article? Sorry, but I couldn’t resist spoofing, in the post title,  the unfortunate sound of the acronym for the “new” model proposed in this article.

    I am impress on how you explain the whole information about social networking sites. I love your list of references. You gave detailed information about it. I believe people who wants to learn about social bookmarking should read this.

    Thanks Terry,
    I enjoyed reading your post – informative and inspiring. I resonate with your view: “social networking provides tools that can be used for plagiarism, cheating, harassment and other types of academic and social misconduct. None of these challenges are insurmountable, but they highlight the challenges of rapid and wholesale implementation and point to the need for pilot projects that guide adaptive policies, training and support development.” That is posing a huge challenge to the educators (professors and teachers). I have even found numerous sites promoting their fees for service to work on the assignments for undergraduates, masters or even doctors. Just wonder why this happens. I have written a few posts on higher education and social networking on these areas too.
    Renewed thanks for sharing this wonderful piece of work.
