At its Google I/O developer conference in Mountain View, California, today, Google is announcing a new tool for developers to use if they d like their applications to integrate with Google Classroom, a cloud service for handling assignments, coursework, and grades.Learning tools can focus on creating great content, and use Classroom to manage the workflow for assignments created with their content.And the existing Classroom API is getting more powerful — it will be able to work with the Google Drive folder for a given course.Applications can use this new functionality to store files in the same Drive folder as the rest of the resources in a class, or use course groups to manage file sharing permissions, Kupershlak wrote.The enhancements come as other companies strive to make their core products more widely relied upon in the education sector.In March Apple launched a Classroom app for iOS alongside the release of iOS 9.3, and in April Microsoft launched an app called Classroom in preview for Office 365 Education customers.Earlier this month Dropbox, which competes with Google Drive, launched an Education tier.Google has gained share with its Chromebooks, which lean heavily on cloud storage that companies provision through Google Apps for Education.
This spring it became clear that Kjell Ahlzén should leave the CEO role in HPE to become Sweden-CEO of Salesforce on 1 June. She has been at HP since 2011, and has previously worked for two other IT giants, and as a senior consultant at Microsoft and previously at IBM. Anna Grano wants to wait to give an interview until she is on site at the new job, but leave some comments about his future assignments via email. When asked what changes she will enforce it becomes crystal clear no answer. - I'm going to give myself time to listen to our employees, customers and partners ideas and needs before I along with my management team decide how we will implement HPE's global strategy in the Swedish market, she says, and it seems anyway rhyme well with how she describes her leadership style. I believe in continuous learning and a focus on results.
It used to be that when you booked four tickets at once — say, because you re a perfectly normal family going on holiday — the airline would book the four of you in seats next to each other.But this is a brave new world, and airlines running on razor-thin profit margins must grasp onto every possible chance for cold hard cash:A few carriers are openly marketing the so-called family fee.Frontier Airlines, which since 2014 has charged for all advance seat assignments, has a drawing of two people with a child on its website saying paying is recommended to keep your party together.Parents face the choice of adding fees on top of fares or begging other travelers on packed flights to switch seats so children aren t sitting alone with strangers.But it s a whole new level of trickery when airlines use online seating maps to make the plane seem full, pressurizing you to pay a fee to reserve a seat, when the plane s actually half-empty:Louis Silfin, a banking consultant in New York, was traveling alone recently when he decided to pay $9 extra to move closer to the front of the plane on what appeared to be full Delta flights from New York to Boston and back.Why did I just pay for a better seat when I could have just moved around anyway?
One teaching assistant replied, pointing to a portion of the assignment that set a 15 minute limit.The student clarified that their agent was running a little slow, and could take a bit longer. But this past January-April was the first semester in which he let the AI, secretly, help teach.Here's how he pulled it off: While the core of an online course is usually a video series with the professor, most of the actual class — including interactions with teaching assistants — happens through text posts.In Goel's case his students,  300 enrollees in Georgia Tech's online masters in computer science program, had a class-wide forum where they could ask questions about the class, its subject matter, and the assignments. "It's a graduate-level class in AI," Goel pointed out, "And the 300 students in this class typically are professionals. Goel wants to build a world where AIs make online education better, more accessible, and more effective in teaching individual students who might otherwise drop out for lack of individualized attention.Jill is just his first step.This is the first article in a quick, three-part series on Jill Watson, her training, and her implications for the future of education.

Thirty-six thousand Verizon employees are close to going back to work because of an agreement struck by the company and union representatives.The union said Verizon was seeking to move jobs offshore, outsource work to low-wage contractors, close call centers, and force technicians to go on months-long assignments away from home.But there is now an agreement in principle to end the strike and sign a new four-year contract, US Labor Secretary Thomas Perez announced today."The parties are now working to reduce the agreement to writing, after which the proposal will be submitted to CWA Communications Workers of America and IBEW International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers union members for ratification," said Perez, who helped mediate the settlement.Though the agreement isn't finalized, the CWA said Verizon workers have won "big gains" and will take down their pickets.Verizon today said that the company "look s forward to having all of our employees soon back at work in their regular positions and doing what they do best—serving our customers.
After weeks of striking in an attempt to force Verizon to meet their demands, employees of the company agreed to put down their pickets after Big Red and union representatives struck a tentative agreement, CNN has reported.According to U.S. Labor Secretary Thomas Perez, who also served as mediator, Verizon and its unions agreed in principle to a new four-year contract.The Communications Workers of America CWA , one of the unions involved in the matter, said the agreement has yet to be finalized, but it gives Verizon workers big gains.The agreement will also be sent to the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers IBEW , and the CWA and IBEW will vote on whether to ratify the contract sometime soon.Verizon is eager to put all of this behind it, with the company looking forward to having all of our employees soon back at work in their regular positions and doing what they do best — serving our customers.In addition, they accused the company of wanting to shift to low-wage contractors, move their jobs overseas, shut down call centers, and send technicians on assignments away from home that would take months to complete.

Looks good points for user stories goal To formulate user stories, user stories, is a common way to capture user requirements in agile projects. And it is common to point to assess user stories for how much work you think is required to implement them. The danger to assess the work by number of completed credits is to miss the real measure of success: To deliver effective and useful software. Compare speed for teams or individuals Many developers are obsessed with metrics, but it is wrong to use the completed user story points per iteration sprint to compare teams. Phrases tasks instead of stories If the stories are formulated really covert assignments as a development project will be task-oriented to do things, rather than being focused on delivering value. A story should not be more extensive than that it can be implemented in an iteration of a project, which makes it useless to divide it into several tasks.

The concept behind Luma is pretty simple.The concept of using multiple routers to create one big Wi-Fi network is nothing new, of course.Commercial networks do it all the time, and with a little know-how and two routers, you can even do it at home.But what Luma is promising is simplicity — additional access points are detected and added to the network without any messing with DHCP assignments and IP addresses.It s a little too NSA-comes-to-the-suburbs for my taste, but then again I also spent my early years on PCs learning how to circumvent my parents firewall.It s available on Luma s website right now, and should be in Best Buy later this summer.
