Bradley Manning perpetrated the biggest breach of military security in American history. While serving as an Army intelligence analyst, he leaked an astounding amount of classified information to WikiLeaks: classified combat videos, plus hundreds of thousands of documents from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and from embassies around the globe. Nearly all of WikiLeaks' headline-making releases of information have come from a single source: Bradley Manning. The leaks affected governments the world over - the Arab Spring may have been sparked, in part, by Manning's revelations. They propelled WikiLeaks to a level of international prominence it never had before and forever changed the delicate dance between secrecy and transparency. Bradley Manning's story is one of global significance, and yet he remains an enigma. Now, for the first time, the full truth will be told about a man who, at the age of only twenty-two, changed the world. Nicks' book paints a nuanced portrait of a man haunted by demons and driven by hope, impulsive and cocky yet idealistic enough to follow his conscience. Relying on numerous conversations with those who know Manning best and extensive chat logs published here for the first time, Nicks gives the full story of a bright, gay young man from middle America who signs on to serve his country but finds himself serving a cause he finds far more sinister. Manning's is the morally complex tale of a soldier who took matters into his own hands in order to fulfill what he saw as a higher purpose. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rob Granniss.

Computers afford an environment in which use of communication tools can promote deep learning. This may be due to the creation of a varied learning environment, and to the induction of active, collaborative and self-directed learning. Students'' experience of web-supported learning was evaluated to test the assumption that computer-mediated-communication promotes higher order thinking. The association between presumed active use of communication tools, and perceptions concerning learning principles (varied and challenging learning environment, application of higher order thinking skills, and lecturer feedback and encouragement to interact frequently), was evaluated. Perceived active use of e-mail and the chat facility was significantly associated with recognition of the need to apply higher-order thinking skills in order to do well in the course. Lecturers interested in using electronic communication tools to promote higher order thinking may find this book useful.
The Internet is increasingly being used in higher educationin several countries in the last decade, resulting in online,blended, and web-enhanced course offerings for students.Instructors who experiment with computer-mediated communicationtools like discussion forums, chat rooms, and blogs to facilitatecourse discussions struggle to combine both online and classroomdiscussions effectively. This book presents two models for theintegration of online discussions into the classroom to enhancestudent learning. Based on qualitative research in two universitycourses that used Blackboard, several benefits of these two modelsfor instructors and students with different teaching and learningstyles are discussed in this book. It also provides insight intothe role of instructional design, instructor participation, andinstructor feedback in web-enhanced instruction. This book containsstrategies for effectively using and facilitating asynchronousonline discussions that will be of special interest to teachers,educators, practitioners, trainers, educational technologists, andcurriculum designers seeking to design and implement blendedinstruction.
Diploma Thesis from the year 2002 in the subject Computer Science - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,0, University of Applied Sciences Bielefeld (unbekannt), language: English, abstract: Inhaltsangabe:Abstract:Language learning software has been available on the market for a couple of years. So far the most common form of delivering the product is a CD-Rom. The Internet offers not only the possibility to deliver this product in an immaterial way, but also to add new features to it.The goal of the thesis is to find out, which additional features an online offered language learning software must possess, to satisfy the needs of the customer. This task is part of the so called new product development process. It is a very complex process and refers to all departments of a company, even though, for a long time it has been considered to be only the job of the R & D department. But to solve the above mentioned task, the technical component, of new product development is not important. For this piece of work only the point of view of the marketing department is important, as it is their duty to observe the market expectations. Therefore this thesis only covers the first part of new product development, the opportunity identification, and partly the design.Firstly the different environments were studied and secondary data were collected. A main part of the secondary data were delivered by a European Union study from the year 2000. This research was focused on the knowledge and habits of EU inhabitants regarding foreign languages. After the examination of the available secondary data, the required primary data were collected, to find out how the single features satisfy the requirements of the target group. Other secondary data were delivered by pedagogical departments of universities. They researched and evaluated, from the pedagogical point of view, possible online features like e-mail, newsgroups and chats, videoconferences, downloadable video / audio files and up to date articles.This thesis objective is to find out, how these possible features meet the requirements of the customer, or to be more precise of the target group. Therefore the target group had to be defined. Defined by profession, the target group consist of: Students in higher education and universities, managers and White Collar Workers.Thanks to the secondary data, the needs of the target group are known. To obtain the required primary data, on how the possible product features satisfy the market needs, a questionnaire was designed. The interviews took place in two countries and at international courses in order to be able to consider domestic differences. The universities were: The University of Applied Science, Bielefeld, Germany and the Universidade do Minho, Braga Portugal.The results were analysed and afterwards the few available offers, of online language learning products, were evaluated according to the obtained results. Resulting from this work one can state that there is a general positive attitude of the respondents regarding the new possible features, even though different attitude groups exist.The features that are considered to be the most valuable and helpful ones are E-mail, newsgroups and Chat and Downloadable Video / Audio files . At present there is not even a handful of companies, which are offering one or all of the new possible features, on the Internet. This means the entry barrier for this emerging market is still very low and that makes this market quite attractive.Inhaltsverzeichnis:Table of Contents:1.)Executive Summary42.)Introduction6a.)A General outline of the development in Europe6b.)Elearning of foreign languages7c.)The part of New Product Development83.)Literature Review9a.)Introduction9b.)Elearning from the pedagogical point of View9c.)Problems of New Product Development11i....
Virtual classrooms happen to be one of the most important and rapidly growing phenomena in the computerization of higher education across the globe. It is an aspect of computing that has contributed greatly in easing the data storage and delivery of teaching and learning in higher institutions. Virtual classroom can be synchronous or asynchronous. Each has its merits and demerits. An ideal situation is a blended learning that combines the features of the two. This book demonstrates how an integrated virtual classroom that combines features of synchronous and asynchronous platforms can be practically designed and developed in easy steps. It gives an in-depth coverage of topics such as distance learning systems, virtual classrooms and online learning. The proposed virtual classroom has features like assignment, lesson, glossary, forum, audio, video, whiteboard, wiki and chat among others to mimic effectively the face-to-face classroom setting. The book is an ideal companion for both tutors and learners of higher institutions, especially where e-learning has been practically deployed. It will also serve as a gateway for institutions willing to embrace distance education.
Advances in learning environment have provided students with a wide variety of Teaching and learning alternatives that have expanded the educational process beyond the traditional classroom. Web-based resources are one form of web-based learning environment that uses programs to develop modules on the Internet and make it available to the students. It typically combines functions such as discussion boards, chat rooms, online assessment, tracking of students' use of the web and course administration. The book describes the development, utilization and evaluation of web based learning resources in teaching of fundamentals of computers, description on the learner's attributes and analysis of the effect after exposure to the web-based learning resources. This book therefore will be useful in enriching the limited literature on the integration of Web-based instructional technology and utilization of information technology in the teaching- learning process, for policy makers, administrators, teachers and students in Higher education Institutions as well as other levels of education.
This book provides a comprehensive and engaging analysis of the purpose and function of student evaluation in higher education. It explores its foundations and the emerging functions, as well as its future potential to improve the quality of university teaching and student learning.The book systematically assesses the core assumptions underpinning the design of student evaluation models as a tool to improve the quality of teaching. It also analyses the emerging influence of student opinion as a key metric and a powerful proxy for assuring the quality of teachers, teaching and courses in universities. Using the voices of teachers in the day-to-day practices of higher education, the book also explores the actual perceptions held by academics about student evaluation.It offers the first real attempt to critically analyse the developing influence of student evaluation on contemporary approaches to academic teaching. Using a practice-based perspective and the powerful explanatory potential of cultural historical activity theory (CHAT), the implications of the changing focus in the use of the student voice - from development to measurement - are systematically explored and assessed.Importantly, using the evidence provided by a unique series of practice-based case studies, the book also offers powerful new insights into how the student voice can be reconceptualised to more effectively improve the quality of teaching, curriculum and assessment. Based on this empirical analysis, a series of practical strategies are proposed to enhance the work of student evaluation in the future university to drive pedagogical innovation.This unique volume provides those interested in student evaluation with a more complex understanding of the development, contemporary function and future potential of the student voice. It also demonstrates how the student voice - in combination with professional dialogue - can be used to encourage more powerful and substantial forms of pedagogical improvement and academic development in higher education environments.
