Changing the Equation: Empowering Adult Learners with Edtech

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Wed, 2019-09-18 02:09

Luminary Labs, US Dept of Ed

These case studies — featuring diverse stakeholders, actions and approaches, and lessons learned — prove there is not a single prescriptive path to supporting successful adult learning. Administrators, educators, and funders can apply the insights that work best in their unique contexts to advance adult education in their own communities.

Liam Tung, ZDNet

Devices with new speedier Thunderbolt 3-based USB4 should reach the market in the second half of 2020.  USB4 is the next major version of the USB, which gains a major speed boost thanks to Intel licensing its Thunderbolt 3 protocol to the USB Promoter Group on a royalty-free basis. This group includes Apple, HP, Intel, Microsoft, and Texas Instruments. USB4 will enable 40Gbps speeds equivalent to Thunderbolt 3, which is currently found in high-end computers like the MacBook Pro and peripherals.

Forget email: Scammers use CEO voice ‘deepfakes’ to con workers into wiring cash

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Wed, 2019-09-18 02:02

Liam Tung, ZDNet
AI-generated audio was used to trick a CEO into wiring $243,000 to a scammer’s bank account. The Wall Street Journal reports that the CEO of an unnamed UK-based energy company thought he was talking on the phone with his boss, the CEO of the German parent company, who’d asked him to urgently transfer €220,000 ($243,000) to a Hungarian supplier. However, the UK CEO was in fact taking instructions from a scammer who’d used AI-powered voice technology to impersonate the German CEO. The UK-based CEO became suspicious when the fraudster called a third time requesting a second transfer and noticed the call was from an Austrian number.

Can Calbright reinvent online community college?

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Tue, 2019-09-17 02:10

By Wayne D’Orio, Education Dive
California’s newest public college is beginning an experiment this fall that could change how higher education serves a coveted class of students: working adults without degrees. Called Calbright, the free online community college is starting slow, offering noncredit classes with curriculum designed to teach skills requested by area companies. But less than a month before it is expected to open, Calbright is raising more questions than it has answered. Those include how it will mesh with California’s existing 114 community colleges, the extent to which it will be able to reach the underserved students it is targeting and whether it will impact online education for working adults beyond the state.

Why 5G requires new approaches to cybersecurity

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Tue, 2019-09-17 02:04

Tom Wheeler and David Simpson, Brookings

5G will be a physical overhaul of our essential networks that will have decades-long impact. Because 5G is the conversion to a mostly all-software network, future upgrades will be software updates much like the current upgrades to your smartphone. Because of the cyber vulnerabilities of software, the tougher part of the real 5G “race” is to retool how we secure the most important network of the 21st century and the ecosystem of devices and applications that sprout from that network.

BY ANDREW PERRIN AND MADHU KUMAR, Pew Research

As smartphones and other mobile devices have become more widespread, 28% of American adults now report that they go online “almost constantly,” up from 21% in 2015, according to a Pew Research Center survey conducted Jan. 8 to Feb. 7, 2019. Overall, 81% of Americans say they go online on a daily basis. That figure includes the 28% who go online almost constantly, as well as 45% who say they go online several times a day and 9% who go online about once a day. Some 8% go online several times a week or less often, while 10% of adults say they do not use the internet at all.

Karen Gilchrist, CNBC
Artificial intelligence and cloud computing are terms once reserved for the realms of science fiction. But, today, they’ve become an increasingly important — and lucrative — fixture of the employment landscape. “Some of the top skills we’re seeing that are in great demand are artificial intelligence, big data, cloud computing,” Feon Ang, vice president for talent and learning solutions in Asia Pacific at professional networking site LinkedIn. The demand applies globally. However, it especially pertains to the most sought-after skills in Asia Pacific, which is currently suffering a “brain drain,” whereby talented workers are relocating overseas for better socio-economic prospects, Ang told CNBC’s “Capital Connection” Tuesday.

Wi-Fi 6 is just now arriving in phones, laptops and network equipment. But engineers are already turning their attention to what’ll come next: Wi-Fi 7. With speeds as high as 30 gigabits per second, the next generation of Wi-Fi promises better streaming video, longer range and fewer problems with traffic congestion. The change will come in a series of steps, beginning with improvements to Wi-Fi 6, that lay the groundwork for the expected arrival of Wi-Fi 7 in 2024.

The advantages of social media for college presidents

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Mon, 2019-09-16 02:02

By: Marylouise Fennell and Scott D. Miller, University Business

When Scott Miller was appointed president of Bethany College in 2007, he and Marylouise Fennell created and tested a long-term social media strategy. The strategy focused on reinforcing the brand of a nationally ranked liberal arts college in a rural section of West Virginia, and on further engaging an already loyal base of alumni and friends. In 2015, Miller was appointed president of Virginia Wesleyan University. Here, he has established multiple social media platforms that he uses as president. This is in addition to his visibility through regular e-cards, e-blasts and opinion pieces; monthly presidential e- letters; a weekly online newsletter; and online commentaries for The Virginian- Pilot, HuffPost and other news outlets. Among his platforms are Flickr, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and a daily blog about campus life that feeds into the university’s website.

5 issues college leaders will confront this year

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Sun, 2019-09-15 02:10

Hallie Busta, Education Dive
Enrollment, finances, immigration, free speech. Many of the issues expected at the top of college presidents’ work lists are carryovers from last year, with a few new wrinkles. Higher ed watched this summer as one public system reacted to drastic cuts in state funding. And college leaders raised yet more flags that the current political climate is threatening the supply of international students. Meanwhile, issues around Title IX are likely to heat up again with the expected release of new regulations this fall. “It’s in many ways more of the same as well as a bunch of new complications,” said Terry Hartle, senior vice president of government and public affairs at the American Council on Education (ACE).

Emerging technology can replace workers — or train them for new work

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Sun, 2019-09-15 02:02

Jack Karsteh, Brookings
Skills training typically comes through higher education or from companies themselves. However, rising college tuition costs and shrinking investments in training reduce the opportunity for employees to acquire the skills needed for new kinds of work. Now, newly-emerging technologies may help to fill this void in skills training. Augmented reality and virtual reality can bring computers to manual jobs far removed from an office, giving companies and workers more options for how and where retraining takes place. Rather than requiring employees to go to a classroom or an online portal, AR and VR headsets can teach workers new skills on-site.

Analytics can help universities better support students’ learning

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Sat, 2019-09-14 02:10

By KOH HIAN CHYE, Today

For a start, universities can use the data to generate predictions of students’ performance, which are then fed into early alert systems with other information such as the students’ current semester study load and their previous semesters’ cumulative grade point average. These can, in turn, provide information for faculty members to formulate intervention strategies to support individual students in their learning. For example, students who are expected to perform well in the semester can be further encouraged to not only achieve their potential but to surpass it. On the other hand, students who are expected not to perform as well can be advised to adopt good study habits and strategies and seek help early when they experience difficulties in their learning. These can contribute towards a positive learning experience and supportive learning environment.

Education has become flexible and mobile by merging with technology. Using the technology for education has led to a huge growth in online courses worldwide as it has already solved the location limitation and nowadays many students can complete course work and assignments wherever they are. Now By using technology in education, students with family commitments or those who are working full time can complete their online courses in which all colleges and universities offer these. As we already mentioned, today students don’t have any problem regarding the location as they can study from anywhere in the world and they can enroll in it.
