MicroMasters Program Schools and Partners: RITx Availability: Current Robotics PERSPECTIVES ON FUKUSHIMA » Nuclear Decommissioning Report I recently attended the Environmental Remediation Technologies Summit in Tokyo, Japan, along with colleagues from 32 other non-Japanese firms. The summit was facilitated by the U.S. Departments of Energy, Commerce, and State; with cooperation from Japan’s Ministry of Environment, the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), and officials from Fukushima prefecture. The objectives for the visit were to: 1) provide a status of cleanup and recovery activities not only at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, but also the 18,000 square miles of contaminated lands, and 2) facilitate discussions related to the latest D&D technologies that could add value in the cleanup effort. One of the most compelling lessons learned from the accident is that there was and continues to be a lack of a central, comprehensive response plan.

In reality, sitting in front of a computer screen passively watching a video and then filling out standard multiple choice quizzes can quickly become boring. This is what Gregor Freund, the CEO and founder of Versal, aimed to combat when he and his team created an interactive, crowdsourced online classroom where anyone can design an online course. Versal, which is set to launch on July 9, will initially feature about 15 to 20 "learning gadgets," which are tools instructors can use to build an interactive learning site without requiring any coding knowledge. So far, the gadgets include widgets with which to embed surveys, quizzes, reference tools, images, text, and interactive graphs. "I looked at the online educational space and didn't like the quality of the courses offered," Freund explains.
What are the Fallacy Files? I began collecting and studying logical fallacies about twenty-five years ago, when I first became interested in logic.
