New Music Channel from Europeana

Imagine looking at original handwritten manuscripts of a piece of music and then listening to different interpretations of it before reading a biography of the composer. On the Europeana Music Channel, you can.

Europeana Sounds channel

The new channel, made together with the Europeana Sounds project, is now in its test phase, and available to users to try out and share their feedback. From August 2015 to January 2016 we want to gather responses both about what’s in the channel, and about the user interface too. What can we develop and improve before the channel’s full launch in 2016?

The Music Channel is one of several new channels themed around popular subjects which will bring together different objects, texts and images from collections across Europe. They are part of our wider work to improve our main portal, helping give visitors a richer, more curated journey through Europe’s cultural heritage.

Classroom Discourse

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : CLASSROOM DISCOURSE.


From the Tayor & Francis website for the journal:

Classroom Discourse is an international, peer reviewed journal that provides a forum in which research from language and education disciplines can be combined.

“The Journal focuses on research that considers discourse and interaction in settings where activity is deliberately organised to promote learning. While most papers focus on the discourse of classrooms, others report research in more informal, naturalistic settings in which, while learning is certainly still taking place, it is not occurring in the typical and ‘traditional’ space of a classroom. Examples might include online tutorials, peer-peer interactions of work-in-progress, and dialogues between ‘trainer and trainee’ in a workplace context.”

This journal is published 3 times a year.

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2010) to present.

Access Classroom Discourse via the ejournals@cambridge A-Z or at this link.
