Internet opens elite colleges to all - Yahoo! News

Internet opens elite colleges to all - Yahoo! News
An MIT initiative called "OpenCourseWare" makes virtually all the school's courses available online for free — lecture notes, readings, tests and often video lectures. Strang's Math 18.06 course is among the most popular, with visitors downloading his lectures more than 1.3 million times since June alone.

Scoopt


Scoopt
Originally uploaded by Inaki.
Scoopt, the first agency to sell photos on behalf of citizen journalists, according to the site, has the potential to turn even camera phone users in money-making photographers...

A registered Flickr user can join Scoopt, tag their news worthy images with the keyword “scoopt,” and email Scoopt notifying them of the postings. For images that end up being distributed to media outlets, the Flickr user and Scoopt split profits 50/50, according to the company website. The Flickr user retains primary copyrights, and Scoopt has a sub-license to the image, according to the site.

In addition, Flickr users can make a little profit for recommending friends to Scoopt. The Flickr user will get a 10 percent cut of friends’ images that are sold.

Call them citizen journalists or paparazzi or photographers, Flickr users could be part the market for user-contributed news content.

This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.
