How Teachers Will Use E-Readers to Catch Cheaters

How Teachers Will Use E-Readers to Catch Cheaters | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it
Tricks for catching plagiarizers online are old hat. But now teachers have ways to monitor the time it takes a student to read a text.

 

These are tough times for plagiarists and would-be academic cheaters. That may seem a counter-intuitive statement, given how much material is online, just waiting to be copied-and-pasted, and how many services are ready to write your papers for you for a nominal (or not so nominal) consideration.

 

But just as authoritarian governments can use Twitter to spy on their rebellious citizens, so too professors can turn online tools against their students. And now digital reading has become the newest frontier of scholarly surveillance, the newest tool for those of us who like to stand at the center of the academic Panopticon.

ThinkWave – Bringing Key Elements of Administrative and Instructional Technologies Together

ThinkWave – Bringing Key Elements of Administrative and Instructional Technologies Together | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

Combining elements of the SIS, the LMS/CMS, and a Portal, to create something uniquely powerful.

 

Recently, ThinkWave co-founder John Poluektov reached out to me to introduce this application to me. On first glance, ThinkWave struck me as being purely an administrative technology, and not really an instructional one. John took the time to provide informative answers to questions I posed and in doing so, made the case that ThinkWave brings elements of some instructional tools together with common administrative functionality to create a tool that facilitates administrative needs while also aiding in instruction-related communications and helping to establish a stronger connection between teacher, student, administrator, and parent.

3 Things to Consider When Building Interactive E-Learning » The Rapid eLearning Blog

3 Things to Consider When Building Interactive E-Learning » The Rapid eLearning Blog | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

In a recent post, I built a drag and drop video player where you can select and drag a video title to load a video tutorial. I got lots of questions about how I built the player. Most of the questions were about how I built the drag-and-drop player. So I put together some tutorials and made the file available for download.

 

Tutorial 1: create the framework
Tutorial 2: add layers and links
Tutorial 3: create the drag and drop
Tutorial 4: design tips
Downloads: file and free font


One reason why the post generated so many questions is because of the novelty of dragging the choice button to load a tutorial video. This makes sense. In most cases this type of demo would have been a click and reveal interaction; but the drag and drop choice added some novel interactivity.
