New brings life to the virtual world

New brings life to the virtual world | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
New looks at challenges through fresh eyes. That’s especially true for midwife Dr Donovan Jones and his team, Shanna Fealy and Associate Professor Rohan Walker. With the assistance of Craig Williams of the IT Innovation team they seek to bring Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality to the age-old experience of childbirth—and through these technologies, teach future midwives to save newborn lives.

Survey: With Student-Supplied Data, Colleges Could Drastically Improve Recruitment

Personalized communication matters in higher education. According to a recent survey, not only did students say they'd be more likely to choose a school that personalized its communications to them during the recruitment process, but alumni said they'd probably donate more often if they knew their money was funding organizations or projects they were involved with themselves as students. Those results surfaced during a survey undertaken on behalf of education technology company Ellucian by Wakefield Research.

Digital Authoritarianism Is Rising. Here's What That Means

Digital Authoritarianism Is Rising. Here's What That Means | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"This is the eighth year in a row that global digital freedom has declined, according to think tank Freedom House’s annual Freedom on the Net report. The report covered 65 countries that represent 87 percent of the world’s internet users; while the study found improvements in 19 countries,  it also found that 26 countries took a step backwards.

 

"The US was counted as one of the declining countries after the repeal of net neutrality rules, which ensure all internet traffic is treated equally, and reauthorization of the FISA Amendments Act, which permits the government to carry out widespread digital surveillance. But the most worrying trends identified in the report are the broadening efforts to monitor and manipulate public opinion online, and the increasing use of the specter of fake news as an excuse to stifle dissent."
