One of Australia’s leading regional institutions, the University of Newcastle (the University) has its main campus in that city, with satellite facilities throughout the Eastern Seaboard of Australia as well as a campus in Singapore. It offers graduate and postgraduate programmes to domestic and international students and boasts a major research portfolio. Until recently it also wrangled a huge array of disparate customer relationship management (CRM) systems that had been implemented across the University over many years and for different purposes. While they each served their purpose at the time, the University recognised the benefits that would accrue from building...

As a veteran teacher, I usually had a pretty good idea of how I could support parents and guardians with their students’ education. But sometimes a family-teacher conference would reveal something I didn’t know. I realized that together, we could work on a solution. That was before the pandemic—back when the learning environment was still fully in the classroom and educators could meet with families face-to-face. In this new remote and hybrid learning environment, we don’t have the experience to know what our families need from us.  And with social distancing in place, it’s more challenging to find out. So,...

Online security (known as 'cybersecurity') is one of the biggest challenges that companies face. The problem is that most solutions currently on the market are very expensive and rather ineffective. To change this and to help make companies, and by extension citizens, safer, one EU-funded project is taking a new approach - one that takes into account a wide-range of information, such as social media and blogs.

Bezpieczeństwo w sieci (inaczej „cyberbezpieczeństwo”) to jedna z najważniejszych kwestii, które firmy muszą brać dziś pod uwagę. Większość dostępnych obecnie rozwiązań jest jednak droga i nieskuteczna. Aby to zmienić i chronić firmy – a w efekcie także obywateli – finansowany przez UE projekt proponuje nowe podejście uwzględniające dostęp do informacji przez media społecznościowe, blogi itp.
