New technology and tools are transforming learning experiences, creating opportunities that used to only happen in a face-to-face classroom. But building and teaching an online course requires a different approach because what’s worked in the classroom doesn’t necessarily translate online. Teaching an online class is far more complicated than simply recording 60-minute lectures and asking […]

Donald Trump may not have a long history as a politician, but he flip-flops with the best of them. He has done a complete switcheroo on the Iraq War (he was for it before he was against it, despite what he claims now), immigration (he criticized Mitt Romney's harsh talk about undocumented immigrants before embracing even harsher measures), and trade (he was a free trader, even defending outsourcing, before he became an ardent protectionist).
But one theme he has consistently stuck to is that he'll Make America Great Again by rebuilding its allegedly crumbling infrastructure.
A member of the Wall Street Journal's editorial board has urged Americans to vote for Hillary Clinton to avoid a potentially disastrous Donald Trump presidency.
"Her election alone is what stands between the American nation and the reign of the most unstable, proudly uninformed, psychologically unfit president ever to enter the White House," Dorothy Rabinowitz, a Pulitzer Prize winning columnist for the newspaper, wrote in an opinion piece.
Under the headline "Hillary-Hatred Derangement Syndrome," the article mounts a blistering attack on Trump and the "Never Hillary forces" who are willing to support the Republican nominee in order to prevent his Democratic opponent taking office.
"They are aware of his casual disregard for truth, his self-obsession, his ignorance, his ingrained vindictiveness," Rabinowitz writes.
Her evisceration of Trump highlights the divide among conservative media over Trump's campaign, which last month brought in an executive from the right-wing website Breitbart News as its CEO.
The moments we remember from presidential debates tend to be the ones that provide a vivid illustration of what we already believe about the candidate who is screwing up: Dan Quayle caught in the headlights at "You're no Jack Kennedy;" George H. W. Bush struggling to answer a question about how the national debt affected him personally; his son W.
OPEC is at it again.
Earlier this year, the 14-member Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries dangled the possibility of a production freeze to contain the global glut of oil that's been driving down prices. But the proposal fell apart in April, when Iran couldn't be brought on board and Saudi Arabia refused to move without them.
Fast forward to this Wednesday, and OPEC appeared to finally strike a deal: They'll cut their total production to somewhere between 32.5 and 33 million barrels per day (bpd), down from the 33.24 million they're at now.
Or at least that's what OPEC says it'll do.
