📒Massive Open Online Courses And Higher Education ✍ Rebecca Bennett
✏Massive Open Online Courses and Higher Education Book Summary : Since the first MOOC was launched at the University of Manitoba in 2008, this new form of the massification of higher education has been a rollercoaster ride for the university sector. The New York Times famously declared 2012 to be the year of the MOOC. However, by 2014, the number of academic leaders who believed the model was unsustainable doubled to more than 50%. While the MOOC hype has somewhat subsided, the attitudes and anxieties of this peak time can still be seen influencing universities and their administrations. This is the first volume that addresses Massive Open Online Courses from a post-MOOC perspective. We move beyond the initial hype and revolutionary promises of the peak-MOOC period and take a sober look at what endures in an area that is still rapidly growing, albeit without the headlines. This book explores the future of the MOOC in higher education by examining what went right, what went wrong and where to next for the massification of higher education and online learning and teaching. The chapters in this collection address these questions from a wide variety of different backgrounds, methodologies and regional perspectives. They explore learner experiences, the move towards course for credit, innovative design, transformations and implications of the MOOC in turn. This book is valuable reading for students and academics interested in education, eLearning, globalisation and information services.

📒Higher Calling ✍ Scott C. Beardsley
✏Higher Calling Book Summary : A revolution has been taking place in the ranks of higher education. University and college presidents—once almost invariably the products of "traditional" scholarly, tenure-track career paths, up through the provost’s office—are rapidly becoming a group with diverse skills and backgrounds. The same is true for many deans and administrative leaders. In Higher Calling: The Rise of Nontraditional Leaders in Academia, Scott C. Beardsley, dean of the University of Virginia’s prestigious Darden School of Business, offers a new vision of leadership for today’s higher education. Grounded in the author’s own inspirational story of leaving McKinsey & Company in pursuit of a new source of meaning in his professional life, Higher Calling employs research gathered from search firm executives who now play king or queen maker in presidential and dean searches. It also takes into account information from U.S. liberal arts colleges—considered by many to be the bellwethers of change—to explore what set of strengths an institution of higher education needs in a leader in the twenty-first century. Beardsley explores the widely varying definitions and associated numbers of traditional and nontraditional leaders and asks, Why are U.S. colleges and universities hiring nontraditional candidates to lead them into the future? How are the skills required to lead higher education institutions changing? Or has the search process changed, resulting in a more diverse set of candidates? Providing not only an analysis of nontraditional leaders in higher education but also strategies for developing skills and selecting leaders, Beardsley offers a wealth of information for the modern university in the face of change.

📒Hm Revenue Customs ✍ Great Britain. National Audit Office
✏HM Revenue Customs Book Summary : There are around 700,000 new businesses starting up each year, all of which are required to register with HM Revenue & Customs for their different liable taxes. If a business takes on employees for example they will need to pay, PAYE, and if the business has a turnover exceeding £61,000 they then become liable for VAT. Businesses though need to register separately for each tax for which they are liable. This NAO report examines opportunities for the HM Revenue & Customs to further improve the help to new businesses, and looks at three areas: the compliance record of newly registered businesses; the process of registering for a tax; the guidance and advice provided by the Department. The report also highlights a number of conclusions and recommendations, including: the Department should target those newly registered businesses which are likely to benefit most, such as those entirely new to business and have least understanding of their tax obligations; new businesses should be encouraged to use the email alert service provided by Business Link; the Department should make guidance forms easier to understand and complete and also work more closely with other organisations such as tax agents, Business Link and financial institutions to coordinate help for new businesses in general; the introduction of a single online tax registration for businesses would be beneficial; and the Department should work towards a one stop telephone information system to cover all taxes.
