This NPR report makes me wonder how culture, heritage languages., and physical ability are figured into this as well as the state of health on the day of the interview… Anyway, read for yourself “Now Algorithms Are Deciding Whom To Hire, Based On Voice” http://www.npr.org/blogs/alltechconsidered/2015/03/23/394827451/now-algorithms-are-deciding-whom-to-hire-based-on-voice

A few people in our class have asked how I did it, so here is a video that is helpful!

Some Pointers for Using Versal

Posted: March 20, 2015 by broadyesl in collaboration, presentations

From one of my students:

From the Versal website on collaborating.  ORIGINAL LINK HERE

  • All Versal courses are now collaborative by default. Approved contributors add material by inserting new gadgets. Initially, contributors will be able to edit all gadgets. Versal will soon introduce settings for publishers to restrict editing permissions.
  • To encourage open communication, authors can comment on each other’s contributions and exchange ideas inside the course creator.
  • Potential contributors request to join a course via its overview page. Publishers may invite people to join by sharing a direct link via email, social networks and more.
