<quote> A new online project led by researchers at UC San Francisco promises to dramatically cut the time and cost of conducting clinical trials for brain diseases, while also helping scientists analyze and track the brain functions of thousands of volunteers over time.
With easy online registration, the Brain Health Registry is designed to create a ready pool of research subjects for studies on neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, as well as depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and many other brain ailments. About one-third of the cost of running a clinical trial comes from having to recruit patients, and many trials fail or are delayed because of it...
From Online Games to Clinical Trials
Volunteers will provide a brief personal history and take online neuropsychological tests in an online game format. The games give the Brain Health Registry scientific team a snapshot of the participant’s brain function. The data collected will help scientists study brains as they age, identify markers for diseases, develop better diagnostic tools to stop disease before it develops and increase the ready pool of pre-qualified clinical trial participants.
A select number of volunteers will be asked by researchers to do more, such as providing saliva or blood samples, or participating in clinical trials to test potential cures. Volunteers can participate as little or as much as they like. All information will be gathered in accordance with federal privacy laws under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), as well as the highest standards of medical ethics...
The Brain Health Registry has partnered with , the San Francisco-based brain training and neuroscience research company. Lumosity is helping recruit members for the Brain Health Registry and has also provided a battery of online assessments as part of the brain performance tests. </quote>
I find that oddly comforting. Not that the climate is changing, but that my memory is true. Huh.
"Mobility: An 'institution-free' platform allows both educators and students to own their courses. For educators, it means the ability to take courses wherever they teach (say, Slovenia, for example). For students, it means they don’t lose access to their course materials when they graduate and no longer have their institution ID and password." (emphasis added)
However, without looking at it, I have no way of knowing whether educators would be able to control their content as much as they like. And our legal dept. would freak. I think. There isn't much to go on as far as what this looks like and how it would fare with FERPA.
I can't seem to find the person who posted this first. Thanks, whoever you are.
And check the cognitive dissonance in this paragraph:
Gregory Feist, associate professor of psychology, said in an email that he used ProctorU while teaching a combined SJSU and Udacity course.
"It's really the only way you can give exams on an online class," Feist said. "Although Dr. Heiden in our department taught an online course and didn't proctor exams and says that the performance was essentially the same as (face-to-face) classes."
So why is in necessary to use an invasive procedure to identify cheating when it clearly doesn't affect learning outcomes?
