Computers increasingly are prevalent in the classroom, with student laptops becoming the norm, yet some beneficial uses of this widespread technology are being overlooked. Speech recognition software is maturing, and possesses the potential to provide real-time note taking assistance in the classroom, particularly for deaf and hard of hearing students. This(More)
Recent advancements in speech recognition technology and the widespread availability of inexpensive computers mean that real-time transcription in the classroom is becoming practical. This paper reports on the accuracy and readability achieved using a low-cost speech transcription system that assists deaf and hard-of-hearing students with note-taking. The(More)
Computing education has permeated virtually all disciplines, expanding learning with new technology and an updated definition of literacy that includes computational thinking. As opportunities for multidisciplinary courses that include computing increase, so do the challenges placed on faculty to develop such courses and the required computing expertise(More)
Speech recognition systems have advanced to the point where they are a viable option for providing note taking assistance for deaf and hard of hearing students. College lectures, which frequently contain domain-specific or uncommon terminology, provide a challenge for these systems that typically rely on a dictionary of common words to guide recognition.(More)
Service Oriented Architectures (SOAs) are rapidly becoming an accepted means of providing network information exchange across a heterogeneous fabric of nodes. Given the complexity of such architectures and multiple levels of system interactions, creating a valid and usable SoS model for SOA application using a single technique that captures the desired(More)
– This paper describes the emerging US National Healthcare Information Network (NHIN). Scheduled to be completed for the US Department of Health and Human Services (DHSS) by 2014, the NHIN will be a complex System of Systems information network built up from consumer, physician, hospital, and Regional Healthcare Information Organizations (RHIOs). The(More)
– The emerging National Healthcare Information Network (NHIN) is intended to improve the efficacy, efficiency, and safety of healthcare. At the same time, Service Oriented Architectures (SOAs) are rapidly becoming an accepted means of providing network information exchange across a heterogeneous fabric of node, and may be suitable for a next-generation(More)
Computer science educators are uniquely positioned to promote greater awareness of Green Computing, using the academic setting to encourage environmentally conscious use of technology. This paper reports on practical techniques that can engage faculty and students, enabling Green Computing to be integrated into the classroom and research laboratory.(More)
This project tries to provide a clarified and comprehensive understanding of the computing disciplines that allows shared experiences and expertise within and across the community. This collective sharing enables computing faculty to collaborate with other disciplines that use computing to enhance groups, and to create new cross-disciplinary areas of study(More)
