edX Free Closed [?] Business English BerkleeX Business & Management EdX Music Social Sciences

Three things are clear about today’s music industry: The consumption of music is expanding at the greatest rate in history and from the most portals ever imagined, the cost of producing music is decreasing, and the number of artists creating and seeking to expose their work and develop careers through the Internet has increased dramatically. As demand grows and Internet piracy wanes, ad-supported and subscription models will generate unprecedented revenues that will surpass even the best of past earnings. And, many astute “music industry-watchers” predict a steep rise in business activity and trade earnings by the end of the decade.

Whether you’re a music creator, consumer, or facilitator of this process, you’ll want to understand the history, underpinnings, and basics of the music business. This course has been developed to provide students with the latest instruction on the best way for creators, consumers, and facilitators to navigate the resurgence of one of the world’s most exciting industries: the music business. Course author John Kellogg—administrator, educator, entertainment lawyer, performer, and radio and television personality—offers students the opportunity to learn the fundamental principles of the developing new music business, for now and into the future.

Quel lien existe-t-il entre l’exploitation des ressources naturelles (terre, eau, ressources minières, forêts, ...) et le développement durable ? Ce cours vous permettra de comprendre les opportunités mais aussi les défis que la présence de ressources naturelles offre, tant au niveau local que global. En analysant les effets socio-économiques et écologiques de la ruée actuelle vers ces ressources naturelles, vous comprendrez mieux les liens entre crise agraire, crise alimentaire et crise environnementale. A partir d’études de cas spécifiques, c’est votre regard sur les dynamiques globales contemporaines qui en sera modifié.

A la fin du cours, par rapport à des problématiques liées à la gestion des ressources naturelles (ruée sur la terre, le sous-sol, l’eau et/ou la forêt), vous serez capables de:

  • comprendre, comparer et analyser des modèles théoriques qui permettent de décoder de telles problématiques
  • décomposer ces problématiques en causes, conséquences, solutions et points de vue divergents sur ces trois elements
  • repérer, dans votre environnement, des cas d'étude qui illustrent ces problématiques et leur appliquer le processus de décomposition vu dans le cours.

Vous serez invités à choisir deux ressources naturelles parmi les quatre proposées. Vous développerez les apprentissages annoncés au travers de présentations vidéo par la professeur et par des experts, de QCM, d’un jeu de plateau à jouer avec vos proches (Land Rush), de débats et de cas d’étude proposés par vous, que vous schématiserez et présenterez aux autres via une activité d’évaluation par les pairs.

What kind of link exists between the exploitation of natural resources (land, water, minerals, forests) and sustainable development? This course aims to understand the opportunities and challenges implied by the presence of natural resources at both local and global levels. You will be analyzing the socioeconomic and ecological effects of the contemporary natural resource rush. This will help you to gain a better understanding of the links between land, food and environmental crises. Through the analysis of specific case studies, you’ll look at contemporary global dynamics in a different way.
