As this story notes, "UNESCO has begun work on drawing up a series of indicators on higher education internationalisation in Asia to help universities and education policy-makers in the region to develop an international outlook and promote international higher education links against a set of solid, accepted, quality benchmarks." We have for example, a project in Japan where 30 effective indicators were defined to assess internationalization.
Not a deep article, but it will give you the basic idea of container tools such as Kubernetes from Google, Swarm from Docker, and CoreOS. Containers are a tye of virtualization, but they "don’t need to make a virtual copy of the host server’s hardware features, and they also don’t need a full copy of the host operating system to be installed within the container. This enables containers to be orders of magnitude more lightweight and flexible."
Facebook isn't worth the time you give it, of course. That's one result from this report. The other is that it is not the millennials that are conned by and clicking on fake news, it's the older generation (raised by traditional media and helpless in the face of a deliberate assault on reality). This all "according to a detailed analysis of news consumption traffic conducted by Web analytics firm Jumpshot."
I could probably fill this newsletter with nothing but SlideShare presentations. Don't worry - I won't - but via Eraser I found this deck that's worth a look. It's a pretty accurate capture of the reality of the web site designer in a higher ed environment - different departments have different priorities and there's no one right way to do it. DeLauder recommends making roles and responsibilities crystal clear (always my favoured strategy as well). But as well, all parties have to acknowledge that in higher education consensus-based decision-making is the norm, which means everybody gets a say.
