OLYMPIC VALUES: Keeping the amateurs amateur

Description

Given the financial clout of professional sport, it is little wonder that many athletes are tempted to turn professional after amateur wins. Boxing is perhaps the clearest example of a sport where athletes are faced with the fundamental amateur v pro debate: do they retain amateur status to live the dream of competing on home soil as Olympic boxers in the London 20102 Games, or take the tempting financial route of lucrative professional contracts and World Championship titles, with the downside of potentially entering the ring too fast than their experience and youth might ideally allow?

The technical and pedagogic issues of using BigBlueButton with distance learning at the University of the West of Scotland

Description

The aim of this project is to replace functionality that was lost from the migration of Blackboard to Moodle by using BigBlueButton Desktop video conferencing system. The University of the West of Scotland (UWS) aim to provide new methods of teaching to distance learners to ensure these students feel part of the University, regardless of their geographic location. Lectures can be recorded so that students who missed a lecture due to time zone differences, ill health or other reasons can still watch the recording. Recorded lectures are particularly useful for students for whom English is their second language and students who find it difficult to take notes during live lectures. In the event of severe weather, BigBlueButton will provide the ability to run courses from the lecturers’ home
