first_imgTags:#E-Learning#Product Reviews#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… As more and more students choose online courses either as alternatives to the traditional college experience or as a supplement, a lot of colleges have started to worry about how to prevent these students from cheating on remotely administered exams. According to the Chronicle of Higher Education, the U.S. Congress, too, is concerned about this and has added language into a part of legislation renewing the Higher Education Act that encourages schools to fight cheating more effectively.Technology While the legislation will not pass until later this year, a number of schools are already looking at high-tech solutions to proctor online exams for them. The most sophisticated of them is the Securexam Remote Proctor, a small device which features a fingerprint scanner, microphone, and a video camera with a 360 degree view. In order to start an exam, students have to prove their identity by fingerprint and during the exam, while the microphone and video look out for anything suspicious like an unknown voice or movement on the camera. While Securexam advertises its system as promoting ‘integrity and convenience,’ the device looks to be anything but convenient. It only works on Windows machines and only with Internet Explorer. Given how popular Apple’s computers are with students, this clearly creates problems for a large number of students.The Remote Proctor is currently being tested by Troy University and costs around $150.Other programs, like Kryterion’s Webassessor, use a somewhat simpler solution based on webcams and biometrics. Webassessor users human proctors that watch up to 50 students each and its software analyses a student’s typing style and alerts the proctors if there is a change (like when somebody else has taken over).Challenge QuestionsAxicom Corporation, which is being used by quite a few universities for their online courses, uses personal ‘challenge’ questions to establish the identity of a student. According to the Chronicle of Higher Education, these questions are based on data Axicom gathers from publicly available databases such as criminal files and property records (surely, nobody would want their friends to have to answer a challenge question about whether they were first arrested for arson in 1995 or 1997).PrivacyAll of these systems carry a good number of privacy issues with them, but they are also all relatively expensive. Then, of course, there are questions if cheating on online exams is even a real problem. As the article in the Chronicle of Higher Education points out, most teachers in online courses rely less on major exams and more on projects and group work anyway.Also, no matter what the technological solution is, chances are that an intrepid cheater will always find a way around this system. Should Congress decide to make systems like this mandatory, however, then we will soon see a whole new market open up and surely other companies will come up with more solutions. The question that remains, however, is if there ever really was a problem in the first place.What is your take on this? Do you have experience with these systems? Do you think online students need to be monitored more closely?Photo by Flickr user dcjohn.

first_imgMinister of Science, Energy and Technology, Dr. the Hon. Andrew Wheatley, says the aim of the Government’s Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) is to develop the country’s energy industry and provide cheaper alternative energy sources for Jamaicans at all levels of the society.“For the first time, the energy sector will be developed in a structural way consistent with the National Energy Policy. Our Integrated Resource Plan is our blueprint that we are developing for the energy sector,” he explained.The Minister was speaking at a breakfast meeting with key stakeholders of the IRP, with the aim of sensitising them about the 20-year plan’s objectives, and partnerships being sought to achieve its goals. The meeting was held at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel in New Kingston on October 13.The IRP is a comprehensive decision support tool and road map for meeting Jamaica’s electricity grid objectives over the next 20 years between 2018 and 2038.“As a nation that heavily depends on fossil fuels, we recognise the need for reliable sustained and affordable energy supplies going forward. Our overdependence on imported fossil fuel has not only cost us deeply over the years, in terms of foreign exchange, investments, productivity and growth, but it has also forced us to look towards cheaper energy, including renewable and alternative energy sources,” the Minister explained.Dr. Wheatley said if stakeholders at all levels keenly follow the guidelines of the IRP and work alongside the Government towards achieving the goals, this will result in the nation’s productivity being increased, cheaper goods being offered for trade and a reduction in energy costs at all levels.“Every single Jamaican is affected by the high cost of energy, [such as] entrepreneurs with good business ideas, manufacturers with export and employment potential, householders, investors [and] persons within the agribusiness sector,” the Minister said.“Today we continue to rely heavily on fuel oil, coupled with the age and inefficiency of many of the conventional power plants in Jamaica. This has resulted in high generation costs. We need some 20 million barrels of oil, and this can cost the country anywhere within the region of some US$2 billion. Our export [and] our manufacturing sector will become uncompetitive if we maintain a high energy cost,” Dr. Wheatley added.He pointed out that the Administration believes that for the country to achieve real growth, “we must provide access to cheap energy”.“We have moved aggressively to incorporate natural gas and other alternative energy sources. However, there is definitely more that needs to be done. It is within this context that the Integrated Resource Plan is being developed as a critical tool for assessing our future energy demands and providing options for meeting the Government’s policy objectives,” the Minister said.“The IRP will provide to all stakeholders, including the investment community, a clear view of the agreed suite of investments for the medium to long term. It will certainly add a level of predictability as to the planned investments for Jamaica’s electricity sector, timelines for the completion of each, and a clear methodology for participation,” he noted.Dr. Wheatley is urging all Jamaicans to find interest in the IRP and play their role in ensuring the goals are achieved by 2038.last_img read more

first_imgHedley dropped from radio stations, Junos show amid sexual misconduct allegationsAt least three Canadian radio stations have pulled Hedley from their playlists after a barrage of sexual misconduct allegations against the band surfaced on social media this week.The firestorm of accusations prompted the group to post a statement on Facebook, dismissing the claims from young fans as “unsubstantiated.” But the allegations prompted the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences to drop the band from the Junos awards ceremony.Edmonton-based Hot 107 is one of the stations which has temporarily stopped airing Hedley’s music.  READ MORE Advertisement Full statement by Hedley on sexual misconduct allegationsCanadian rockers Hedley released a statement Wednesday calling recent allegations of sexual misconduct “unsubstantiated.”  The band’s statement addressed claims of sexual behaviour involving young fans that emerged on Twitter in recent days:All of us in Hedley respect and applaud the #MeToo movement and the open and honest discussion it has inspired. We believe these conversations are particularly important within the music industry, which does not exactly have an enviable history of treating women with the respect they deserve. We appreciate the bravery of those who have come forward with their own stories, and we realize that all of us, as individuals and as a society, can and must do better when it comes to this issue.

first_img18Oct Rep. Lucido bill would charge bottled water operators a fee in Michigan Categories: Lucido News Companies bottling drinking water from Michigan sources would face a per-gallon fee under legislation introduced this week by state Rep. Peter Lucido.The 5-cent per gallon fee would help compensate the state for the loss and sale of one of its most treasured natural resources, Lucido said.“It’s not fair that these out-of-state and out-of-country corporations can swoop in, take millions of gallons of our groundwater, and sell it for a profit. They’re basically poaching our water,” Lucido, of Shelby Township, said of his legislation. “Why are we giving away our resources for free? Our state and its citizens deserve some compensation when companies are making a financial killing off our water – a resource they’re getting for practically nothing.”Lucido’s bill relates only to water used for drinking water by bottling companies. It would not apply to water withdrawn and sprinkled back into the ground.Revenue from the fee would be restricted for use on infrastructure improvements throughout Michigan.“The funds would go directly to upgrading aging infrastructure, like the municipal sewer systems that overflow and dump sewage into Lake St. Clair,” Lucido said. “We need to preserve, protect and repair our sewer and water systems, and this will provide a fitting funding source.”According to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, Nestle draws approximately 1.1 million gallons of water a day from its four pumping locations in Michigan. Lucido said a 5-cent per gallon fee would amount to $55,000 a day, or more than $20 million a year.House Bill 5133 has been referred to the House Natural Resources Committee.###last_img read more
