How Analog Security Cameras Paved the Way for Modern Campus Security

Article | March 2, 2020

There’s no denying that video surveillance is a big part of physical safety on campuses. Today, this technology is a security program staple for universities across the country. A 2019 survey by Campus Safety magazine found that 96 percent of respondents in the higher education, K–12 and healthcare sectors have security cameras installed on their campuses. Most universities have adopted network security cameras, which convert video signals into IP packets broadcast over a LAN or the internet, because they boost security. Schools are also utilizing tools, such as AI-based video analytics software, that enable public safety staff to monitor activity on campus without needing to be at their posts at all times.

5 Roles That Artificial Intelligence A Game Changer In Education Industry

Article | March 5, 2020

Although we have not yet created self-aware robots such as Pepper Popular Movies 2001: A Space Odyssey and Star Wars, we have made smart and frequent use of AI technology in a wide range of applications that, while not mind-blowing as androids, still change our daily lives. One spot where artificial intelligence is ready to perform big changes (and in some cases already) is in education. While we may not see humanoid robots acting as teachers in the next decade, there are already many projects that use computer intelligence to help students and teachers gain more educational experience. Those tools are just a few of the paths here, and those that follow will shape and define the future educational experience.

Unleash Your Creativity For Inspired eLearning

Article | March 31, 2020

Are you inspired? Does your work reflect the level of creativity that you are capable of? Are you limited by factors out of your control? The struggle is real for Instructional Designers, as they must balance their creative desires and well-defined guidelines. These guidelines are well in effect for both academic and corporate organizations. These guidelines oftentimes tend to stifle creativity. The risk is that the learner will not be engaged, and the messaging is not as impactful as intended. Ultimately, the desire should be to create inspired eLearning, push the limits of the Instructional Designer, and still satisfy the organization's guidelines.

A 5-Year Vision for Artificial Intelligence in Higher Ed

Article | February 26, 2020

Ramsey, who led the AI and machine learning solutions team for Google Cloud, specializes in AI-augmented education. He said that AI and its subsets, such as machine learning and deep learning, can address current challenges in education such as student retainment and teacher shortages. But the five-year outlook for AI will only be slightly different from what it is today, Ramsey said. “The capabilities will already exceed what the industry is using them for,” he said. “In other words, the technologies are way ahead of the applications, and it’ll take a while for the applications to catch up, because people don’t change overnight.”
