Internet service providers charging for premium access hold us all to ransom | Technology | theguardian.com - Cory Doctorow 2014-04-28 - 0 views

  •  
    Cory Doctorow theguardian.com, Monday 28 April 2014 00.00 BST "An ISP should give users the bits they ask for, as quickly as it can, and not deliberately slow down the data The Federal Communications Commission, America's telcoms regulator, has formulated a plan to allow internet service providers (ISPs) to charge companies for the right to "premium" access to its customers. This is the worst internet policy news imaginable. It should strike terror into the heart of anyone who cares about fairness, politics, the widening gap between the rich and the poor, fair trade, entrepreneurship, or innovation. The FCC now stands as the world's foremost symbol for "regulatory capture," and its chairman - a former cable executive lobbyist - is the poster child for an unhealthy relationship between industry and its regulators. What's at stake is "network neutrality," which is the simple principle that your ISP should give you the bits you ask for, as quickly as it can, and not deliberately slow down the data you're looking for. ... "
  •  
    Doctorow's intro in his newsletter: "My latest Guardian column, "Internet service providers charging for premium access hold us all to ransom," explains what's at stake now that the FCC is prepared to let ISPs charge services for "premium" access to its subscribers. It's pretty much the worst Internet policy imaginable, an anti-innovation, anti-democratic, anti-justice hand-grenade lobbed by telcos who shout "free market" while they are the beneficiaries of the most extreme industrial government handouts imaginable."

Cooley | Websites as Places of Public Accommodation: DOJ Settlement May Extend Accessibility Requirements to Virtual Space - 0 views

  •  
    "Recent headlines around a high-profile settlement between the US Department of Justice and edX, Inc., one of the largest and earliest distributors of MOOCs, have once again highlighted the importance of understanding the rules for making online courses and services accessible to those with various types and levels of disabilities. While much of the media coverage of the edX settlement has focused on the fact that the government sued so high-profile-and respected-an online provider, to date there has been little recognition that the enforcement action may signal an effort to extend the ADA's accessibility requirements not only to a broader range of non-institutional entities providing web-based instruction, but also to those that provide other education-related services."

The Ultimate Section 508 Guide for Students: Content for Everyone - 0 views

  •  
    "The Ultimate Section 508 Guide for Students In 1973, the United States government passed a sweeping piece of legislation known as the United States Workforce Rehabilitation Act. Intended to aid those with disabilities, this legislation provides funding for ...vocational rehabilitation, supported employment, independent living, and client assistance (and) authorizes a variety of training and service discretionary grants administered by the Rehabilitation Services Administration. As technology advanced, and both the workplace and society as a whole underwent significant changes, the need of those with disabilities also evolved. In order to foster equal access to the Internet and related technologies for all, the government added Section 508 to the Workforce Rehabilitation Act in 1998. What is Section 508? As amended by the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (P.L. 105-220), Section 508 ...requires federal agencies to develop, procure, maintain and use electronic and information technology (EIT) that is accessible to people with disabilities - regardless of whether or not they work for the federal government. In short, federal law requires government agencies to create and use electronic devices, and content developed to be used with them (e.g., websites, media files, etc.), that people with disabilities can readily access. "

Campus announces restriction of public access to educational content | The Daily Californian March 15, 2017 - 0 views

  •  
    "UC Berkeley announced Wednesday that it would restrict public access to existing educational content after a Department of Justice (DOJ) investigation concluded that many of the video captions did not meet standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Campus will instead invest in developing new online content with necessary accessibility features, according to campus spokesperson Roqua Montez. Montez said that because of limited viewership of more than 20,000 course capture videos and a projected cost of at least $1 million for captioning, campus decided not to revamp the videos deemed inaccessible. "On average, the older videos were watched for less than 8 minutes," Montez said. "(It) doesn't make sense to go back and do that, given the budget climate we are in. We had to weigh that as a factor.""

UC Berkeley Responds to DOJ Letter Over Web Accessibility - 3PlayMedia, Oct 5, 2016 - 0 views

  •  
    "The US Department of Justice's (DOJ) Civil Rights Division is doing everything that it can to make the web and information technology (IT) more accessible to people with disabilities. One of the most effective ways to achieve this goal is by following up on complaints submitted by citizens who feel their rights to use the internet are being denied by an organization's inaccessible technology. A landscape portrait featuring Berkeley's Campanile tower in the foreground and a rainy San Francisco Bay in the background That's exactly what happened when, in October 2014, the DOJ began investigating the free, public MOOC (Massive open online course) system offered by University of California, Berkeley when deaf and hard of hearing individuals complained they could not access the audio and video content on the site. On August 30, 2016, the DOJ submitted a 10-page letter to the administration at UC Berkeley stating that they had found the university's MOOC content to be in violation of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) which protects disabled people from discrimination. Legal Context: How Are MOOCs Subject to Accessibility Laws? The laws surrounding free online course content Accessibility are not explicit."

Intervention of the Holy See: WIPO Diplomatic Conference on a Treaty for the Blind | Knowledge Ecology International - 0 views

  •  
    The Holy See delivered this statement on 18 June 2013 at the Marrakesh Diplomatic Conference on a WIPO Treaty for the Blind. Statement by His Excellency Archbishop Silvano M. Tomasi Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the UN and Other International Organizations in Geneva at World Intellectual Property Organization Diplomatic Conference to Conclude a Treaty to Facilitate Access to Published Works by Visually Impaired Persons and Persons with Print Disabilities Marrakech (Morocco) "...Mr. President, The primary goals of the copyright system is the dissemination of creative works to enhance the common good. Copyright has never been an end in itself. Increasingly, technological developments have strained the capacity of copyright law to limit the ways in which the public accesses creative works. As stated by Jean Paul II, in his Encyclical Letter Laborem Exercens, "It would be radically unworthy of man, and a denial of our common humanity, to admit to the life of the community, and thus admit to work, only those who are fully functional. To do so would be to practise a serious form of discrimination, that of the strong and healthy against the weak and sick" [2] . Since all persons are called to contribute to society, it is fundamental to create an international instrument that could give even to impaired people a variety of opportunities to discover their potential, understand their environment, discover their rights and put to the best use their talents and resources both for personal fulfilment and for their contribution to society. This common good must be served in its fullness, not according to a reductionist vision subordinated only to the advantage of some people; rather, it is to be based on a logic that leads to the acceptance of a comprehensive responsibility. "The common good corresponds to the highest of human inclinations [3], but it is a good that is very difficult to attain because it requires the constant ability and effort to see

    La difesa incondizionale da parte del Vaticano di un trattato OMPI per i ciechi e altre persone che non possono adoperare testi stampati è particolarmente interessante: in incontri precedenti su questo trattato - sotto il Papa precedente - il Vaticano si era allineato sui paesi ricchi del cosiddetto "Gruppo B" dell'OMPI nel chiedere di seppellire questo trattato.

    "12.4202 - Interpellanza Swisscom e i contenuti protetti dal diritto da autore Depositato da Stöckli Hans Data del deposito 13.12.2012 Depositato in Consiglio degli Stati Stato attuale Liquidato (...) Risposta del Consiglio federale del 13.02.2013 1. Il gruppo di lavoro per ottimizzare la gestione collettiva dei diritti d'autore e dei diritti di protezione affini (GLDA; https://www.ige.ch/it/diritti-dautore/agur12.html), istituito dal capo del Dipartimento federale di giustizia e polizia, si sta occupando della seguente questione: fino a che punto l'introduzione, per gli Internet Access Provider come Swisscom, dell'obbligo di adottare misure attive per la protezione dei diritti d'autore è conciliabile con il diritto alla protezione della sfera privata sancito dalla Costituzione (art. 13 della Costituzione federale), il segreto delle telecomunicazioni (art. 43 LTC, art. 321ter CP), la protezione dei dati e il diritto alla libertà di espressione? I risultati sono attesi per fine 2013. È incerto se, dato l'elevato numero dei siti Internet, gli Access Provider sarebbero in grado di fare una selezione basata su elementi contenutistici. "

Common Core & Ed Tech: Symbaloo for Classroom Curation - 1 views

  •  
    "Symbaloo for Classroom Curation One of the challenges of having online tech tools for your students is finding a way to manage them.  Do you use a tool that bookmarks them in one place, giving students easy access?  I've tried a number of curation tools, and always come back to Symbaloo.  Symbaloo allows you to set up a "web mix" of tiles, each tile linking to your favorite websites.  You can colorize the tiles, add short titles, and even a small image.  You can then post the link on your class's web page for all to access. "

    January 19, 2016 "Starting today, when you enroll in certain courses, you'll be asked to pay a fee (or apply for Coursera's financial aid program) if you'd like to submit required graded assignments and earn a Course Certificate. You can also choose to explore the course for free, in which case you'll have full access to videos, discussions, and practice assignments, and view-only access to graded assignments. You'll see the options for each individual course when you click "enroll" on the course information page; courses that aren't part of this change will continue to show the options to enroll in the course either with or without a Certificate. Most courses that are part of Specializations will begin offering this new experience this week, and certain other courses will follow later this year."

A statement on online course content and accessibility | Berkeley News (UC Berkeley, Sep 13, 2016) - 0 views

  •  
    " We look forward to continued dialog with the Department of Justice regarding the requirements of the ADA and options for compliance. Yet we do so with the realization that, due to our current financial constraints, we might not be able to continue to provide free public content under the conditions laid out by the Department of Justice to the extent we have in the past. In many cases the requirements proposed by the department would require the university to implement extremely expensive measures to continue to make these resources available to the public for free. We believe that in a time of substantial budget deficits and shrinking state financial support, our first obligation is to use our limited resources to support our enrolled students. Therefore, we must strongly consider the unenviable option of whether to remove content from public access. Please know that we fully intend to exhaust every available option to retain or restore free public availability of online content. It is our hope that we will find an appropriate resolution with the Department of Justice that allows us to serve the extended seeing- and hearing-impaired community and continue to provide free online content."

Subtitles and Captions for Every Video on the Web - 1st post of the Amara blog, April 13, 2010 - 2 views

    "Here's the problem: web video is beginning to rival television, but there isn't a good open resource for subtitling. Here's our mission: we're trying to make captioning, subtitling, and translating video publicly accessible in a way that's free and open, just like the Web. Our approach: Make a simple and ubiquitous way to request, create, and translate subtitles for any video Work with others to define open protocols so that whenever subtitles for a video exist, any website or video player will be able to retrieve them Create a community space for people who subtitle video, to encourage contributions and facilitate collaboration" Posted April 13, 2010 by amarasubs.

    I am currently investigating file formats for long-term preservation. Obviously they must be free of proprietary ownership and publicly accessible and avoid vendor-locking - even if the vendor is a non-profit organization. What I wonder: which conditions must a video file format fulfill to permit captioning / subtitling? Are there public and open standards of formats for captioning / subtitling? Where do I find them? Can they be enriched with metadata about the author of the subtitles?

    "Below you will find 50+ web tools you can use to create your own web-based story. They are grouped into categories of tool types, but you can also access a complete list of all tools. Each link points to a full entry on the tool that includes a description, links and embedded versions of the original Dominoe story, links to other stories created in the tool, and some more feedback that can help you decided if the tool might be of interest. People who join this wiki can contribute to the content on these pages (learn more...). Again, your mission is not to review or try every single one (that would be madness, I know), but pick one that sounds interesting and see if you can produce something. But before rummaging around the toolbox, have you done your prep work? Do you have your story idea or presentation concept outlined, developed? This should be on paper or in a document file or scribbled on the back of a napkin, but do not rely on making it up as you go! If not, go back 2 spaces and do this now. Next- do you have your media assets available, your images, video clips, audio files-- if not go find your media now."

The concept of openness behind c and x-MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) | Rodriguez | Open Praxis 2013 - 0 views

  •  
    "Abstract The last five years have witnessed a hype about MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) presaging a revolution in higher education. Although all MOOCs have in common their scale and free access, they have already bifurcated in two very distinct types of courses when compared in terms of their underpinning theory, format and structure, known as c-MOOCs and x-MOOCs. The concept of openness behind each of the formats is also very different. Previous studies have shown that c-and x-MOOCs share some common features but that they clearly differ on the learning theory and pedagogical model on which they stand. In this paper we extend earlier findings and concentrate on the concept of "openness" behind each format showing important differences.

    Strumento per la verifica dell'accessibilità delle pagine Web, con criteri più aggiornati - mi pare - di CynthiaSays, ad es. ARIA. Grazie a Mattia Lanzoni - https://www.diigo.com/user/Matzlanz - per la segnalazione. PS: Forse non c'entra direttamente con questo cMOOC #ltis13 - però i cMOOC usano tanti strumenti sociali di cui è necessario valutare l'accessibilità (anche di cosa si produce con essi) se poi li si vogliono ri-adoperare anche a scuola. E questi strumenti sociali presentano caratteristiche tecniche (di codice) che altre applicazioni più vecchie (?) di valutazione dell'accessibilità non prendono in conto.
