20th International Conference on College Teaching and Learning
The Web is an additional medium used by major TV cable news networks to expand and complement the dissemination of international, national, local, or other news that help users improve their knowledge and make informed professional and personal decisions. News websites provides an excellent way to present news to users who are willing to accept this technology and perceive that it is useful and easy to use. News websites allow professors to bring current events to the classroom in real time.
Mayor TV cable networks, TV broadcast networks, local stations, newspapers, news agencies, radio and web-only news provides have been developing news websites.
News websites bring extensive detail and coverage of the news, allowing users to go beyond regular television programming.
Web design, navigation scheme, and news content organization may affect the capability of these news websites to reach major users due to lack of usefulness or difficulty in navigating the sites to find the desired news. Usefulness and ease of use are two of the major problems encountered by web developers when creating and maintaining informational websites.
The News Web Sites
The Bottom Line
- Content, content organization, and navigation scheme could have impact on users.
- Perceived usefulness is the factor that predicts user’s acceptance and intended usage.
How I’m fighting bias in algorithms | Joy Buolamwini | TEDxBeaconStreet
MIT Media Lab grad student Joy Buolamwini was working with facial recognition software when she noticed a problem: the software didn’t recognize her face — because the people who coded the algorithm hadn’t taught it to identify a broad range of skin tones and facial structures. Now she’s on a mission to fight bias in machine learning. She spoke at TEDxBeaconStreet in Boston. Join #codedgaze. (Ref: TED.com)

What is the social impact of facial recognition? How developers can use full spectrum inclusion coding to improve our lives?
Topic includes logic programming, coding, facial recognition software, and related uses of technologies to solve social issues.

This graphic shows the steps to convert data into Business Intelligence. We go from big data warehouses to do data mining and extract the pieces that we will filter, analyze and store as records in databases.
We then organize, sort, and clean records to produce information. We start the process of selecting useful information that we can convert into intelligence. Similar to military intelligence, we study this meaningful information to produce business intelligence for our organization. This business intelligence allows leaders and managers to make decisions keeping the competitive advantage. Business intelligence is also useful to expand to new markets, explore new countries, and try new systems. Two important considerations are: Control Information Overload and Validate Sources. These will help to have better Data at the Base. It is called “database” for a reason. We are using this graphic and video in our courses. #DrJoseCampus
Innovative technologies have been used in global organizations to enhance performance. Technology Acceptance Model is used to explore current trends such as new media, web 2.0 tools, and other social media networks. (2010 International College Teaching and Learning Conference). Used in Technology Management courses.
Almost a year later of previous use of this drawing and with iPhone 7 out and Galaxy 7 burning we continue the conversation about Instant Knowledge Generation and Device Oriented Learning. Are we surviving Information Overload?
Reducing Information Overload was done on 2011 to be used after the information overload presentation to emphasize the use of the iPad in E-learning. Oct 2013
Reblogged this on josetoons & scoutoons and commented:
This cartoon was updated after getting my first iPhone. Two years later I got an iPhone 6S+ with a bigger screen and still reducing information overload. Nov 2015
