Episode 45 Trends for Weeks of August 17-27 Cheating MOOCs, Campus Network Security, Apple Watch, and VR Campus Tours
August 30, 2015 § 2 Comments
We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of August 17-27, 2015 as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). In this episode of our podcast, we discuss 5 trends. The first trend was a return of MOOCs in the news. The second trend is campus security and networks news. The third trend is the continued news about new updates to software and hardware. The fourth trend is a resurgence in news about the Apple Watch. And, finally, our fifth trend we observed was more news about VR and how it is being used in various educational settings.
We have three recommended readings for the week.
