Online voting isn't ready yet, university researchers say

With the internet encroaching on daily life, it was only natural for online voting solutions to arise.

"Experts are almost universally agreed that online voting is the worst possible option from a security standpoint. Online voting is simply not ready for prime time.

Aggie Homework Helpline lends preK-12 students a hand

Students at Texas A&M University who are studying to become teachers last week got a new opportunity to practice their skills by assisting preK-12 students around the country who need a little extra help with their homework. The university launched the Aggie Homework Hotline to help young students, especially those who are struggling with remote learning environments that have been widely deployed during the pandemic, and to help their own students get some practice working with kids. Families need homework help for their children and Aggie undergraduate students are motivated, adaptive and committed to selfless service,” said Valerie Hill-Jackson, professor and assistant dean of educator preparation at A&M. Betsy has the story.


UT Austin beams in hologram professor

In case you missed it: To improve safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, a business class at the University of Texas, Austin, has adopted new technology that allows the professor to beam a 3D hologram of himself directly into the classroom.
