Lyrebird — an API for generating human voice

Lyrebird — an API for generating human voice | elearning stuff | Scoop.it

Lyrebird is the first company to offer a technology to reproduce the voice of someone as accurately and with as little recorded audio. Such a technology raises important societal issues that we address in the next paragraphs.

Voice recordings are currently considered as strong pieces of evidence in our societies and in particular in jurisdictions of many countries. Our technology questions the validity of such evidence as it allows to easily manipulate audio recordings. This could potentially have dangerous consequences such as misleading diplomats, fraud and more generally any other problem caused by stealing the identity of someone else.

By releasing our technology publicly and making it available to anyone, we want to ensure that there will be no such risks. We hope that everyone will soon be aware that such technology exists and that copying the voice of someone else is possible. More generally, we want to raise attention about the lack of evidence that audio recordings may represent in the near future.

The Impact Of A Moodle Theme On Learning

The Impact Of A Moodle Theme On Learning | elearning stuff | Scoop.it

Moodle is the base of technology-aided learning across schools and universities worldwide. As a result, a large number of developers have flocked to this platform, to contribute their ideas and become a part of the community. The “Moodleverse” today has tons of developers contributing themes and plugins on a regular basis.

Have you ever wondered how these developments could be affecting your end users, the instructors, and enrolled students? As the face of the interaction, choosing a Moodle theme is a task that demands extreme care.

Let us discuss the impact of Moodle themes on learning.

Themes add an attractive, even captivating, look to an LMS. They better the user experience, differentiating it from the otherwise-boring interface of any management system.

Moodle is no different. A good theme will engage your students and help them stay focused, as you will learn in this article.

There are two main factors that affect a theme’s impact on the audience:

1. User Interface (UI)
2. User eXperience (UX)

How Google is disrupting the education system

How Google is disrupting the education system | elearning stuff | Scoop.it
Google has unveiled plans to use its Squared Online course to disrupt the education system, as it says it is “successfully” merging classroom and online learning styles, something it claims rival tech firms have failed to do.

“Squared Online bridges the gap between the classic classroom experience, where you can’t get scale, and e-learning that can sometimes be a bit dry. It offers a more experiential learning experience,” says Shuvo Saha, director of the Google Digital Academy.

The course focuses on digital marketing and is split into five modules which look at disruption, how tech is changing businesses, the rise of social and mobile, data analytics and insights.

Squared Online originally began as a face-to-face class, but the tech giant soon realised it needed more scale and so decided to create an online interactive classroom. To do this it collaborated with Avado, a professional coaching company.

This allowed it to move from 30 people attending classes three to four times a year to working with up to 400 people at a time, in a much more collaborative way.

Angélica Potes's curator insight, April 23, 11:52 PM
By the time technology is offeriing new advantages and tools to support the teachers' work, different platforms to develop courses are appearing to facilitate both teaching and learning. To illustrate, a new way to carry out a course with students is moodle which is an area where different resources and activities are added by the teacher for the students to work and to follow a learning process in a specific matter. The moodle course can be a simple web page in which students have the opportunity to download documents or it also can be a more complex number of activities where learning progresses through interaction. The moodle courses are a valuable tool which permit learning not only to be on-site but it also can be from your house without spending too much time. In this article, the 5 things that teachers have to do to create a moodle course the first time are present to take into account and to do a really good job in the creation of the virtual course where students can find the information and support they need to have a successful learning process.

Free digital learning opportunities for migrants and refugees

Free digital learning opportunities for migrants and refugees | elearning stuff | Scoop.it

European educational systems are being challenged by the increasing number of migrants and individuals asking for refugee status. According to the UN, only 50% of refugees have access to primary education, compared with a global level of more than 90%. Furthermore, only 1% of refugees are participating in higher education. Education, however, is regarded as the key to helping migrants improve their language skills and knowledge about their host country, and also to finding employment.

Tired of slow page loading due to high resolution images? Check out this awesome new Moodle Plugin

Tired of slow page loading due to high resolution images? Check out this awesome new Moodle Plugin | elearning stuff | Scoop.it
As a Moodle site administrator, are you always worried about the size of the images used by the course designers? Being unaware about the impact sometimes they may upload a picture taken by a good quality camera of size more than 5 Mega Pixels when they don’t need such a high-resolution. It will affect the page load time and consume more bandwidth which is crucial for students accessing your course from Mobile devices.

One way to overcome this problem is either to train all the course designers about image size and compression techniques, but they may be reluctant in following the same. The second way and highly recommended way to overcome this is to use the Image Optimizer filter plugin on your Moodle site.

3 modern Instructional Designer Skills for creating a cohesive learning experience | elearning stuff | Scoop.it
Instructional Designers are trained in the latest cutting edge technologies and are adept at using creative techniques to build custom training solutions. They are known for their passion for learning, along with their writing, researching, and communication skills. They must also be effective project managers and flexible problem solvers. These Instructional Designer skills are necessary but will be insufficient unless they are applied with a “learner first” philosophy, which places the needs of the learner ahead of the presentation of the content in the eLearning course. Here are 3 modern Instructional Designer skills the experts use to focus on the needs of their learner:

The Advantages and Disadvantages of MOOCs for Learning

The Advantages and Disadvantages of MOOCs for Learning | elearning stuff | Scoop.it
Massive Open Online Courses, or MOOCs, are online courses that allow participants free access and unrestricted participation to any course of their choice.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, April 21, 9:01 AM
MOOCs were first started in 2008, created by George Siemens and Stephen Downs, and was called “Connectivism and Connective Knowledge/2008” or CCK08. It was created as a credit course for the University of Manitoba. CCK08 had 25 students who had paid fees for the course and around 2200 learners who took the course for free. MOOCs really took off in 2012, when Professors Sebastian Thrun and Peter Norvig of Stanford University offered the online course called “Introduction to Artificial Intelligence”. This course had approximately 1,600,000 students participating from 190 countries. After the success of Intro to Artificial Intelligence, Thrun and Nrovig started Udacity, a business model for online knowledge sharing. There are also a few other MOOCs providers, include Coursera and EdX.
