Five Questions: What's New with Net Neutrality and India's Mobile Markets?
Federal Communications Commission chairman Julius Genachowski in late September outlined principles of net neutrality to promote more open use of the Internet.

In a new interview format called Five Questions, Rajesh Jain, CEO of India-based Netcore, asks Wharton legal studies and business ethics professor Kevin Werbach about net neutrality.

New Approaches to New Markets: How C.K. Prahalad's Bottom of the Pyramid Strategies Are Paying Off
Five years ago, C.K. Prahalad published a book titled, The Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid, in which he argues that multinational companies not only can make money selling to the world's poorest, but also that undertaking such efforts is necessary as a way to close the growing gap between rich and poor countries. Key to his argument for targeting the world's poorest is the sheer size of that market -- an estimated four billion people. How has Prahalad's book -- a revised, fifth-anniversary

Entretien avec Héctor Gálvez (Rencontres 2010)

Cinéaste péruvien, il montre son premier long métrage et raconte comment il a travaillé des années dans le quartier où il filme, dans une ONG, ce qui fait qu’il a pu avoir des acteurs des lieux mêmes de sa fiction. Les circonstances historiques dans lesquelles ces quartiers sont nés remontent à l’époque de la violence, et l’héritage en est difficile à vivre pour les jeunes qui manquent un peu de perspectives, cependant certains s’en sortent.

Most people see learning mathematics as a demanding, even threatening, endeavour. Consequently, creating technology-enhanced environments and activities for learning mathematics is a challenging domain. It requires a synergism of several dimensions of design knowledge: usability, software design, pedagogical design and subject matter. This paper presents a set of patterns derived from a study on designing collaborative learning activities in mathematics for children aged 10-14, and a set of tool

EMERGING COMMERCIALIZATION OF ELEARNING
Technology innovation drives the current elearning market but recent events suggest this model is failing economically. Alternately a market driven by learners, rather than technology is more likely to be competitive and profitable. We examine elearning within the context of a developing academic and skills educational market to pose the question: do existing suppliers (old and new) meet the new market needs? Using Porter’s competitive environment model to analyse the current market position of
