Greetings, I thought some of you on this discussion list might be interested in seeing the current issue of Academe since it has a special focus on "Knowledge & Technology." (I am an author of the first article, on universities posting professors' teaching materials on the web, which we've discussed on this list before.) The issue is available free online. Here are the articles with links. Martha McCaughey Academe Online September-October 2012 -- Volume 98.
