We are pleased to announce that a major pilot study of the Myknowledgemap remote assessment platform Myprogress is underway at one of Sweden’s larger universities. It will be fantastically exciting to see if Myknowledgemaps solution can make evaluation more mobile in educations where more elements are “on site” rather than on campus also under Swedish conditions.
Assessment of students in action presents different challenges than when it takes place on campus
Good news if you are in chemistry, physics or biology!
We have started a collaboration with a developer of digital education solutions for these subjects that may change quite a bit of how education is done today.
We will soon tell you more and start a number of pilot projects at schools and universities in Scandinavia and it will be very exciting to see how these turn out!
We will run a dedicated newsletter for these projects and if you want to be on that list, please let us know here [sign up]
If you have colleagues in chemistry, physics or biology who might be interested in being the first to know more about a revolutionary digital product for these subjects, feel free to forward this email to them!
If you would like to take your STEM subjects one step even further, then Gradescope by Turnitin is seriously something you should take a closer look at. Contact us for a free 3-month pilot for the department or get a personal user account free of charge here
IntelliCon 2021: Your Analytics in Action. 21:a oktober
Listen to Daniel Amo, Head of Data Analytics at La Salle University (Barcelona), our good friend Mark Glynn, Head of the Teaching Enhancement Unit at Dublin City University and more when it comes to educational practice at your department.
Do not miss this fantastic opportunity to learn how to make your students’ data work for you.
Speaking of Dublin City University, did you know that they use Unicam for lecture capture? This is what the university writes on its website
“The video functionality of Loop, powered by the ‘Unicam’ is DCU’s video capture system. Through Unicam every staff member and student has the capability to capture their own videos, using their PC, mobile device or an IP camera.
Each video is captured and stored on the users DCU Google Drive in a safe and secure manner. As the videos are stored on Google drive there is no additional cost to the institution regardless of how many videos are created making Unicam the most sustainable video capture system for higher education.”
Best practices for reducing student collusion
In higher education, failure to understand the difference between permissible and impermissible collaboration can quickly result in unintentional academic dishonesty. So, as a student or instructor, how much do you know about collaboration? Download Turnitin’s whitepaper [free] to understand what causes collusion and how to identify, manage and deter this form of misconduct.
In practice, students and education professionals are encouraged to think about academic integrity in all their activities. Preventing cheating, plagiarism and other types of misconduct is central to their job descriptions, and strict penalties are imposed on those who give in to temptation. One university’s strenuous efforts to eradicate cheating acts as a guiding light for the education sector, going as far as providing statistics on the similarity of papers checked for plagiarism.

Global EdTech leaders D2L recently released a policy statement on support for social emotional learning to enable student recovery. Recent research examines the negative effects that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on children and adolescents and their ability to work and learn, and the analysis is that more resources are needed to support healing and growth.
D2L Brightspace is a cloud-based learning platform built for people who care deeply about student success.
Let’s say you’re writing an essay or thesis. You have a bunch of different references in your bibliography, but you don’t know exactly how to format them.
Does the title go in Italics? What is et al. and when do you use it? What is APA 5th Edition and how is it different from the 6th Edition? Why are there different editions?
This is where Citationsy comes in. What if you never had to think about any of this again? Contact us and we will tell you about what perhaps might be the World’s Best Referencing Tool.
