WuKong Education | August 12, 2022
WuKong Education, a New Zealand based EdTech company, announced a new round of upgrades for its technological teaching assistant product "WuKong Interactive Exercise". Fully embodying WuKong's "7-step Learning Method", namely the seven key steps of "Previewing - Learning - Reviewing - Consolidating - Reflecting - Examing - Applying", the upgraded product effectively combines the process of "learning" and "practising" to strengthen students' learning effects with diversified, interesting and scientific learning forms, so that learners can firmly grasp what has been learnt and really enjoy the learning process.
WuKong has initiated the research and development of its interactive exercise product in July 2021. In September 2021, the product was put into use in the graded reading courses of WuKong Chinese, a famous Chinese curriculum product under WuKong Education. In October 2021, it was applied to WuKong Math as well. Since the launch of the product, its functions experienced several rounds of upgrades and have been continuously optimized according to various learning and teaching needs.
This round of upgrades further enriched the contents in the question bank. Furthermore, based on AI interaction, voice recognition and other technologies, in-class knowledge can be integrated into the lively and interesting interactive homework display page, so as to effectively satisfy students' personalised learning needs and after-class reviewing needs. The product can also meet the demands of 1-on-1 class, small class, large class and other classroom types, as well as students at different learning levels.
On the other hand, the upgrade of interactive exercise product also provides convenience for teachers. Teachers from WuKong can leave feedback on the homework submitted by students in real time through the product's voice interaction function, which improves the efficiency of online teaching, shortens the process of homework feedback, and enables teachers and students to communicate more effectively after class.
"Since 2019, our IT team has invested millions of funds in the research and development of technological platforms and data platforms. We have built the industry's leading teaching quality management system and intelligent learning situation tracking and analysing system. Based on the continuous expansion of the market and the increasing needs of our learners, we have developed a set of relatively mature teaching content systems and technology platforms to meet users' personalised learning needs."
- Cicy, Chief Education Officer of WuKong, said during the London EdTech Week
We believe that for the majority of parents today, the most precious thing is to nurture their children's interest in learning. WuKong hopes to fully stimulate their children's interest and thinking in learning by means of technological empowerment. As one of the world's most popular education technology companies, our expectation is to help children grow happily and wisely, and to be a trusted companion in the learning process for families around the world said Cicy.
Mrs. Zhang, a Tsinghua University graduate who is currently teaching in WuKong Education, expressed her reflections on the upgraded product: the WuKong Interactive Exercise can customize the exercise layout, automatically distribute homework in the system. Once the students submitted their exercises, I can also receive instant notifications and provide them with real time voice with feedback, which is really convenient and makes me feel like I'm getting closer to my students!
Practical cases of the integration of technology and education are not rare in recent years, and technological innovations have brought more possibilities to the online education industry. Under this background, more and more EdTech enterprises are injecting investments in their scientific and technological research and development, hoping to bring more intelligent education products and services to learners. WuKong Education is among this marching army as well.

Keysight Technologies, Inc | July 15, 2022
Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that delivers advanced design and validation solutions to help accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, has introduced Keysight Cyber Training Simulator (KCTS), a comprehensive, turnkey cyber range that simulates real-world traffic using the company’s BreakingPoint solution.With cybercrime on the rise and cybersecurity professionals difficult to find, organizations are at risk. Consequently, cybersecurity jobs are growing by more than 30% annually (as cited in (ISC)2, 2021) and students who are well prepared will be the first to be considered for the industry’s top jobs. Therefore, academic programs that prepare them will be in high demand.
Keysight Cyber Training Simulator enables students to develop their skills in a realistic environment with market-leading tools currently used by professionals in enterprises and governments worldwide. As a result, students can quickly fill the roles in cybersecurity across many industries.
“Educators are making cybersecurity training a high priority to address the urgent need for cybersecurity professionals across all industries,Partnering with Keysight enables universities to develop the next generation of leading experts and stay at the forefront of the ever-changing cybersecurity landscape.”
-Boon Juan Tan, vice president and general manager of General Electronics Measurement Solutions at Keysight Technologies
KCTS is designed to help academic institutions fill the cyber industry workforce gap with industry-ready graduates. KCTS breaks from the common, script-based cyber range approach to provide a realistic and rounded experience, with unique benefits for both faculty and students, including:
The ability to hone their skills in real-world scenarios: Students will learn in the same environment they will use on the job post-graduation. For example, Keysight’s BreakingPoint simulates real-world attacks using legitimate traffic, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) and malware, enabling students to learn from actual scenarios, not scripts. These scenarios are regularly updated by Keysight’s professional teams, ensuring students are trained on the latest threats.
The ability to quickly think on their feet: A full range of Red Team and Blue Team lab exercises, based on one or more of the simplified Cyber Kill Chain stages, prepares students for the unexpected and everchanging environment in the cyberworld.
Easy integration into the school’s Learning Management System (LMS): A common frustration for faculty is when third-party teaching tools have limited or no integration with the university’s LMS. KCTS features full Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) to ensure that instructors can take full advantage of their university’s LMS investment.
Easy customization: The instructor has full ownership and control to create and customize scenarios as needed for the syllabus.
