Massive Open Online PhDsQuoteSome features and toolsA MOOPhD might contain (amongst other things):A community of other research students, with opportunities to build and sustain networks of both peers (other students) and established researchersMOOCs to help cover research methods, subject specialisms, etcA great deal of scaffolding: resources to help explain the process, information about everything from ethics to citation, means and criteria to self-assess such as wizards, forms and questionnaires, guidelines for reviewing papers, etcMentors (not exactly supervisors - too tricky to deal with the numbers) including both experienced academics and others further on in the PhD process. Mentors might provide input to a group/action learning set of students rather than to individuals, and thus allow students to observe behaviours that the academics model.Exemplars - e.g. marked-up reviews of papers. This is vital as one of the ways of allowing established academics to provide role models and show what it means to be an academicPlentiful resources and links relevant to the field (crowd-generated)A filtering and search system to help identify people and things A means to provide peer review to others (akin to an online journal submission system)A means to have one's own ideas and papers reviewed by peersTutorial support - most likely a variant on action learning sets to support the process. This would cover the whole process from brainstorming, to literature review, to methodology design, to conduct and analysis of research, to evaluation etc. Ideally, each set would be facilitated by a professional academic or at least an experienced peer.

I used ACE in the 90's when ACE was undocumented, so it's never too late.On the other hand, one thousand ACE students in a 20 year period is not many, to be honest. To learn this stuff well, Teaching Assistants are needed IMO.This.Changes.Everything.

According to Dr. Haslein's theory of time, in a vehicle travelling nearly the speed of light, the Earth has aged nearly 700 years since we left it, while we've aged hardly at all. Maybe so. This much is probably true - the men who sent us on this journey are long since dead and gone. You who are reading me now are a different breed - I hope a better one. I leave the 20th century with no regrets. But one more thing - if anybody's listening, that is. Nothing scientific. It's purely personal. But seen from out here everything seems different. Time bends. Space is boundless. It squashes a man's ego. I feel lonely. That's about it. Tell me, though. Does man, that marvel of the universe, that glorious paradox who sent me to the stars..

I am sure this handbook is what you need."Many Yiddish words in Dutch e.g. kapsones You hear many of these words in 'old' Amsterdam (aka 'Mokum'). "The majority of the Dutch Jews used to live in Amsterdam, 80.000 in 1940; I would consider most of the words from the second list Amsterdam slang. "

It helps in pronunciation if you try simulating the clearing of phlegm from throat.As here
