Access Copyright & Technology: Legal And Policy Issues In Education, Lisa Di Valentino Mar 2013

Access Copyright & Technology: Legal And Policy Issues In Education, Lisa Di Valentino

FIMS Presentations

Access Copyright is a collective organization representing the
copyright interests of publishers and creators. The collective offers
copyright licences that allow certain limited uses of works in the
collective's repertoire. The use of collective licences as part of
copyright management policy was common in post-secondary education
administration until 2010, when many universities opted out of a
contractual relationship with Access Copyright.

The growing movement towards online open access publishing and
Creative Commons public licensing has made information more widely
available without requiring payment and with fewer restrictions on
use. The addition of education to the list of fair dealing ...

E-Readers, Computer Screens, Or Paper: Does Reading Comprehension Change Across Media Platforms?, Sara J. Margolin, Michael J. Toland, Casey Driscoll, Jennifer Little Kegler Jan 2013

E-Readers, Computer Screens, Or Paper: Does Reading Comprehension Change Across Media Platforms?, Sara J. Margolin, Michael J. Toland, Casey Driscoll, Jennifer Little Kegler

Library Publications and Presentations

The present research examined the impact of technology on reading comprehension. While previous research has examined memory for text, and yielded mixed results of the impact technology has on one’s ability to remember what they have read, the reading literature has not yet examined comprehension. In comparing paper, computers, and e-readers, results from this study indicated that these three different presentation modes do not differentially affect comprehension of narrative or expository text. Additionally, readers were not consistently compensating for difficulties with comprehension by engaging in different reading behaviors when presented with text in different formats. These results suggest that ...
