“Therein
lies the real trouble. Learning is labor. We're selling the
fantasy that technology can change that. It can’t. No technology
ever has. Gutenberg’s press only made it easier to print books, not
easier to read and understand them.”

Zotero Firefox Extension
Zotero is a free, open source extension for the Firefox browser,
that enables users to collect, manage, and cite research from all
types of sources from the browser. It is partly a piece of reference
management software, used to manage bibliographies and
references when writing essays and articles. On many major
research websites such as digital libraries, Google Scholar, or even
Amazon.com, Zotero detects when a book, article, or other
resource is being viewed and with a mouse click finds and saves
the full reference information to a local file. If the source is an
online article or web page, Zotero can optionally store a local copy
of the source. Users can then add notes, tags, and their own
metadata through the in-browser interface. Selections of the local

What are real time virtual office hours?
They operate a bit like a course chat room with some
added features and an instructor or teaching fellow is
in the room at all times.
As reported in The Harvard Crimson on Monday, teaching fellows
(Harvard parlance for TAs) for the course this semester will begin
holding real-time, online help sessions for students this week.
Using free, Java-based software, students can log on, chat with
each other (via text or microphone) and even “raise their hands”
with the click of a button, which adds them to a queue on the
teaching fellow’s computer.

Free Electronic Books and Journals

Many textbooks are now free online, some of which are
using advertisement revenues to make up for the loss of
sales revenues --http://www.trinity.edu/rjensen/ElectronicLiterature.htm#Textbooks

archives also free) --http://www.aicpa.org/pubs/jofa/joahome.htm
1-19
Fee Electronic Books and Journals

When Adobe PDF files became much more protective of
copyrights, many textbook publishers and academic
journals commenced to make their new publications
available in PDF files. Often the digitized versions are
much cheaper than hard copy, although some students
and their professors still prefer hard copy in spite of the
text search advantages of the digitized versions.

One problem with PDF books and journals is that
reading laptop screens is often tedious and holding
laptops in not comfortable in chairs and beds.
1-20
e-Book Readers Other Than Computers

e-Book readers were available since the 1990s. In
general, they are smaller and more comfortable to hold
than laptop computers.

In most cases e-Books are even more secure for
publishers than Adobe PDF files.
1-21
e-Book Readers Other Than Computers

Early e-Book readers having Web sites for downloading
books and journals included Rocket e-Book, Everybook,
and Microsoft’s Softbook Electronic Tablet.

Electronic reader sellers provide online libraries for easy
scanning, purchasing, and instant downloading.

Electronic reader sellers allow purchased books to be
“stored” at their Website and downloaded over and over
again to reduce storage space required by users.
1-22
Advantages of e-Books

Search and cross reference (hypertext, hypermedia)

Library in a box rather than a room or building
Can easily carry hundreds of books in a reader no larger
than a single hard copy book

Free storage on various Web servers

Ease of holding and retrieving stored books

Can vary size of reading fonts and screen lighting

Can read in a dark or dimly lit room

No trees cut for paper

Easy to add audio for blind readers
1-23
Advantages of -eBooks

Can add margin notations and highlights

Lost books are easily replaced.

Rare or hard-to-find books easily available

Digital versions much cheaper to inventory, distribute,
and sell --- no trucks or bookstores

Ease of browsing for books

Errors easy to correct

Additions and changes in real time for new editions
1-24
Disadvantages of -eBooks

Require computers or specialized readers

Books not compatible with competing readers

Companies making a particular reader may go out of
business. In contrast, hard copy books can be preserved
for thousands of years.

Publishers and authors fear hacking to violate copyright
protections. But hard copy can be photocopied or
scanned cheaply into computers.

No legal market for “used” electronic books

2007 Update on the Sony Reader
Nearly 10 Months After its debut, the Sony Reader is
hardly a game changer. Reviews of the tiny handheld
book-reading device have been tepid at best, and Sony
Corp. has consistently declined to release sales figures,
which just might tell you something. But Sony isn't
backing away. In fact, as speculation continues in
publishing circles that book e-tailing giant Amazon.com
is planning to come out with its own portable reader,
Sony is launching a number of initiatives to give its
Reader more sizzle.
1-26
2007 Update on the Sony Reader
The market for digital books is nascent, and Sony,
despite the Reader's less-than-splashy debut, still sees its
potential, he half-inch-thick Sony Reader, which can
store about 80 electronic books, allows readers to flip
pages and adjust the type size. It sells for about $300,
and digital book downloads range from $2 to $20 apiece.

JiTT Resources --- http://134.68.135.1/JiTT/resources.html
The JiTT strategy is based on the notion of a feedback loop
between the out-of-class assignments and the subsequent
classroom activities. Based on the student responses, the
instructor selects an appropriate set of items that will make up the
lesson. The classroom experience then informs the choice of the
next set of web assignments. Over the past seven years faculty
across the country have developed a rich set of JiTT resources. To
look at some examples please visit A JiTT Sampler.

Classroom Response Pads
Back is the early 1990s, Barry Rice and I were both inspired heavily
by a company called HyperGraphics that authored a complete
course management and delivery system in DOS (before the days
of Windows and Macs). My classes were small at Trinity
University, but Barry had some large basic accounting lecture
classes at Loyola College of Maryland. He made active use of
hardware from HyperGraphics that allowed each student in a
large lecture to respond to questions in class. At first all these
response pads were hard wired to student desks. Later they
became wireless. HyperGraphics changed names over the
decades but is still in the business of selling wireless response
pads. Now the classroom "Clickers" are replacing the older style
wireless response pads. You can read more about the history of
this type of thing at

Chat Rooms

A chat room is a Web site, part of a Web site, or part of an online
service such as America Online, that provides a venue for
communities of users with a common interest to communicate in
real time. Forums and discussion groups, in comparison, allow
users to post messages but don't have the capacity for interactive
messaging. Most chat rooms don't require users to have any
special software; those that do, such as Internet Relay Chat (IRC)
allow users to download it from the Internet.

Chat rooms are available in Blackboard and WebCT

Often used for team projects

Instant Messaging (IM)

Abbreviated IM, a type of communications service that enables
you to create a kind of private chat room with another individual
in order to communicate in real time over the Internet, analagous
to a telephone conversation but using text-based, not voice-based,
communication. Typically, the instant messaging system alerts you
whenever somebody on your private list is online. You can then
initiate a chat session with that particular individual.

Meebo Use by Steven Hornik

I just wanted to let the list know that I've been using Meebo this
semester for my undergrad financial accounting class and my
grad AIS course. You can see the meebo widget on both of my
webpages (wikis) that I use for the course at either:
http://financialaccounting.wikispaces.com or
http://acg5405.wikispaces.com and if I'm online feel free to say
hello to see how it works.

I have always included my Yahoo ID in my syllabus so students
could IM me with questions. In recent years I observed two
things: 1) I tended to forget to start my IM more and more - I just
wasn't using it that much, and 2) students weren't using it, as it
required them to get a Yahoo account, download the IM software,
1-44
etc.
Meebo Use by Steven Hornik

Since using Meebo, and in particular placing the meebo widget on
my web pages, student communication with me has increased at
least 10 fold (anectodal not empirical). I'm convinced of the
reasons: 1) Ease of Use - students just have to access the course
web page, and the widget lets them know if I'm online, and if so
they can just type away. 2) I don't forget to start it - since it's webbased I simply have the meebo webpage as one of my tabs in
firefox and whenever I start my browser (first thing I do
whenever I'm at my computer) meebo is there.

Meebo also has chat rooms (I haven't used these yet), that allow
you to import almost any kind of media (audio/video) and you can
invite your students to it to create a synchronous environment for
1-45
viewing
course material and discussing it as a group.

Eye Controlled Computers
Eye Controlled Computer for the Disabled
The MyTobii P10 is an eye-controlled communication device aimed
at users with ALS, MS and other neurological disabilities. The unit
integrates a 15-inch screen, a computer and an eye-control device
for easy portability. It simply requires the user to sit in front of it and
follow a dot for 30 seconds to calibrate the eye tracker and then it's
ready to go. The MyTobii P10 maintains precision performance in
any light conditions and whether or not the user wears glasses or
contact lenses and will not be fudged by head movements. The unit,
which can be mounted on desks, beds and wheelchairs, will sell for
$17,000 but we're hoping insurance may cover some of that.

Suppose you are on 122 South Sleazy Lane and need
directions to 1200 Beacon Street. How can you dial on



Dial DIR-ECT-IONS (347-328-4667)
Katherine Boehret, "Directions Are a Cellphone Call Away," The Wall
Street Journal, September 19, 2007, Page D
The service, from a determined start-up called Dial Directions Inc., is
free -- except for the cost of receiving text messages on your phone.
After the first 30 days of use, a one-line advertisement will start
appearing at the bottom of the last text message sent per set of
directions (some take multiple text messages to include all of the
steps).

How to Download PC Videos to TV
Giant screen TV sets are better than computer screens for viewing
video, including course content video recorded by instructors
using such capturing software as Camtasia. As we increasingly
download video files or capture streaming video on the Web into
video files, it is possible to transfer those files to a DVD disk for
playback on other computers and TV sets with DVD players.
However, is it possible to transfer files to TV in one step without
having to make DVD disks?
