On top of all the blogs, law journals, and case updates that I read each day, I also make sure to set aside time to read one Intellectual Property or Tech law book each month. When I find a book that might be useful for clients, I post it:
The World Is Open: How Web Technology is Revolutionizing Education by Curtis J. Bonk, a professor of instructional systems technology at Indiana University.
Technology is changing higher education in more ways than can be counted. Distance education has become common. Leading universities are putting course materials or even entire courses online — free. The Obama plan for community colleges envisions free online courses that could be used nationwide. Professor Bonk surveys this landscape in this new book.
