Do you remember the news about the Google Books victory after a long-drawn-out trial we shed light earlier? As you understand, we mention it now not by accident. After obtaining official approval of the Google team, the Unicheck plagiarism scanner is on the point to launch a new project in 2016. Do you long to learn more details? Once the final passage is read, you’ll be aware of them all. So, let’s go ahead.
It’s not a secret for you that the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) market has long become attractive for many investors, service providers and suppliers. Knowing this, our never-tiring Unicheck team made its way to the east, namely to Dubai, the UAE. Not only could we admire hot sunny autumn days there, but we were also able to spend them very effectively. On 16-17th of November, 2015 we were at the annual international conference EdTech MENA 2015 for the first time.
This autumn appeared to be rather productive for the whole our team. We can hardly manage to write blog posts about conferences and exhibitions we’ve already attended. Still, we can’t help but share with you our impressions on OEB 2015, the conference on technology-enhanced learning, held in Berlin, Germany.
On the 16-18th of November, our team presented Unicheck at ICERIICERI, the 8th International Conference of Education, Research and Innovation 2015 held in one of the most charming Spanish cities, Seville! We were one of the main official sponsors of the event and got a number of mentions, namely on the conference site, social networks and in its printed materials.
How long ago do you think the idea of a traditional classroom conjured up images of the one-room schoolhouse on the prairie? Or the struggling classroom was the overcrowded inner-city concrete room where broken down old textbooks were shared and student engagement was more like mayhem? Or the innovative classroom where siblings gathered around a radio broadcast coming to the remote Australian outback and assignments were delivered by airplane?
It’s hard to believe that only two decades ago we didn’t use the Internet for our educational needs as often as we do now. It was hardly possible to find an educator with a classroom blog, but now it’s a common practice. Step by step, teachers got used to the idea that both teaching and learning become more productive and enjoyable when web resources are used. Going digital has implicit advantages.
At Unicheck, we continue to improve and expand our services to meet the growing and evolving needs of our customers. That’s why we unveil the demo presentation of our new free Solution for Teachers today. We invite educators all over the globe to share their valuable feedback on a new solution and its features and on how the service can be improved.
