Autumn 2021 – the semester when everything turns for the better but does not return to normal.
It is perhaps an understatement to say that there is a certain digital fatigue in teachers, pupils and students after the lightning-fast transition to remote education, remote test taking, remote assessment, well yes, remote just about everything, that Covid brought. That said, digital tools and aids in teaching are probably here to stay and and why shouldnt they be? The right EdTech used correctly is fantastic so this is something we are really looking forward to! RepresentEdTech does not work with emergency solutions or reconfiguring outdated software for an unexpected reality. We work with modern educational technology of established high quality and we are ready to do our part to help educational organisations take the lessons learned and build well-thought-out digital environments with the right systems in the right places for the opportunities ahead – for the future.

Even before digital Covid passports became a thing, VerifyEd launched exactly the same technology for diplomas, grades and course certificates.
A QR code for digital versions of important documents protected by a blockchain and which therefore can not be forged but is still constantly available. With VerifyEd in the organization, your job-seeking students do not have to copy and certify their grades or certificates, but only attach their QR codes to the CV. Should a new original ever be needed, a professional print can be ordered at any time. Easy, Safe, Instant, Always.

The use of Big Data by social media is constantly under scrutiny, but how do you actually use your own data?
Regardless of which learning platform is in the organization, there are enormous benefits to measuring how it is actually used and then taking these lessons and developing learning forward! With Intelliboard, organizations that use D2L Brightspace, Blackboard Learn +, Canvas, Moodle, Zoom, ellucian and Google Classroom can get significantly more data than the learning platform itself offers to work with! Invaluable!
What is self-citation and what does it have to do with academic integrity?
Self-citation allows an academic to expand previous research or refer to previously published work. There are legitimate reasons to self-cite, as scientific research is largely cumulative and it is important to attribute previous basic work. But self-citation can venture into the murky territory of self-promotion that has become a concern in the research community.

Gradescope by Turnitin
With pupils and students back in classrooms and lecture halls, it is not impossible that paper and pen also make a comeback. Utilize the powerful technology in Gradescope to automatically correct handwritten exams and assignments – with the support of artificial intelligence and machine learning. With Gradescope, the student with the submission at the bottom of the pile can get exactly the same attention and high level of feedback as the student whose assignment or test is at the top – in a fraction of the previous correction time.
Gradescope is for both school and higher education – See for your self
With students back on campus, the need for distance learning decreases, which many find a sweet relief. However, this does not have to mean that digital teaching must – or should – be completely put aside. Lecture capture enables schools and universities to ensure that lessons – with subtitles – are available and accessible to all students, when they have the opportunity to take part in them and in a way that fits their varying requirements. Unicam delivers the most user-friendly solution for lecture capture and is well worth a look if you want to bring the digital lessons learned from the pandemic years forward!
