Negativpreis - Datenschützer vergeben "Big Brother Award" - 0 views

    "Auch Hochschulen und Softwarefirmen unter den Preisträgern Dass zwei sonst als technikaffin bekannte Münchner Universitäten, die TU und die Ludwig- Maximilians-Uni, eine aus Sicht der Big-Brother Jury zweifelhafte US- Firma mit Online- Kursen für Studierende beauftrage, sei gefährlich, weil "Coursera" alle Leistungsdaten, Lernerfolge und -Misserfolge der Studierenden zur intransparenten Profilbildung speichere."

Big Brother Award für LMU und TU: Plattform verscherbelt Daten von Studenten - 0 views

  •  
    "Ein bequemer Weg, potenzielle Kandidatinnen und Kandidaten für Top-Jobs zu finden und mit ihnen in Kontakt zu treten, kritisiert Digitalcourage - "selbstverständlich nicht kostenlos". Die Daten würden außerdem in den USA gespeichert und verarbeitet, "damit dürften sie auch dem Zugriff durch US-Behörden ausgesetzt sein". Die TU München war die erste deutsche Hochschule, die Partnerschaften mit Anbietern wie Coursera und edX einging, auch die LMU nutzt Coursera. Dafür haben die Unis am Freitag den Negativpreis Big-Brother-Award verliehen bekommen. Die Technische Universität relativiert das Thema: MOOCs seien ja nicht vorrangig für TUM-Studierende konzipiert, sondern für Externe. Auch die LMU merkt das an. Außerdem weise man darauf hin, "dass es sich bei den Plattformen um privatwirtschaftliche Unternehmen mit eigenen AGBs und Datenschutzrichtlinien handelt", sagt TU-Sprecher Ulrich Marsch. Von der LMU heißt es: Spezielle Vereinbarungen mit Coursera sähen unter anderem vor, dass mit ausdrücklichem Einverständnis des Kursteilnehmers Daten an Dritte weitergegeben werden können. Noch ist das Kursangebot freiwillig. Der Award, schreibt die Jury, solle eine Warnung an die Hochschulen sein, Online-Kurse bei datenschutztechnisch zweifelhaften Anbietern nicht zum Pflichtangebot für den Scheinerwerb zu machen."

Big Brother Awards: Mitten im Leben von Schnüfflern umgeben | heise online - 0 views

  •  
    "Datenschutz beim MOOC Die Technische Universität wie die Ludwig Maximilian Universität in München gehen mit der Zeit und bieten ihren Studenten Online-Kurse an. Dabei setzen sie auf die kalifornische Online-Plattform Coursera, nach eigenen Angaben mit 140 angeschlossenen Universitäten der größte Anbieter von Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC). Coursera sorgte für Schlagzeilen, als der Schweizer Professor Paul-Olivier Dehaye von Coursera wissen wollte, über welche Datensätze Coursera von seinem Kurs und von seinen dort eingeschriebenen Studenten verfügt und was mit diesen Daten gemacht wird. Coursera weigerte sich und geriet darob in Streit mit Dehaye wie mit seiner eigenen Universität (Zürich). Auch in Deutschland gab es Aufregung um Coursera, als die Datenschützerin Marit Hansen die Datenschutzregeln von Coursera kritisierte. Schließlich werden nicht nur die Kurse, sondern auch die Studenten-Daten in den USA gespeichert und ausgewertet. In den Augen der Big Brother Jury ist dabei nicht nur das Verhalten von Coursera fragwürdig, sondern das der Universitäten, die auf Coursera setzen. Es sei schlimm genug, wenn Bildung zum Wirtschaftsgut verkomme und ein US-Anbieter womöglich zum Bestandteil des Pflichtstudiums samt Scheinwerwerb werde. "Falls es keine geeignete europäische Plattform für das Angebot von MOOC gibt, wäre es eine Sache der Unis, eine solche Plattform aufzubauen," wird die Preisvergabe an die Münchener Universitäten in der Kategorie Bildung begründet."

    "Studenten zahlen mit Daten (... Kritikwürdig finden die Aktivisten von Digitalcourage auch das Geschäftsmodell des Onlinekursanbieters Coursera, der in Deutschland unter anderem mit der TU München kooperiert.

Education: Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Ludwig-Maximilians-Univer... - 0 views

  •  
    "for cooperating with the online learning provider Coursera. (...) We regard this cooperation of the Munich universities with Coursera as a marketing operation. The two universities can present themselves globally together with top international universities. Conversely, Coursera adorns itself with their names. It seems that data protection has not been given much thought. Likewise, we miss a critical discussion of who owns the content produced and who profits from it. By the way, taking Coursera courses is still voluntary for the students. This BigBrotherAward is meant as a warning to colleges and universities not to make participation in MOOCs offered by privacy-ignoring companies a mandatory way to earn study credits. Actually it's bad enough that education increasingly becomes a commodity as publicly financed institutions of higher education distribute their offerings via commercial providers. If an appropriate European MOOC platform does not exist, then it is the the universities' duty to create such a platform. By giving a BigBrotherAward to TUM and LMU Munich, we would like to remind both universities and all other education institutions that the long-term business model of such "education providers" hinges on contracts in which the students are not the customers of the MOOC provider, they are the product being sold."

    By Zack Whittaker for Zero Day | August 19, 2015 "...Everyone has a right to privacy. It doesn't just keep our information safe, but it helps us be the people we want to be. Without privacy, we're always being watched. Without privacy, we can't have private discussions or experiences that shape our views, opinions, and thoughts that better society. Without privacy, we can't express ourselves as who we want to be. Privacy either exists, or it doesn't. Today it's cheating spouses, tomorrow it could be you."

SafeGov.org - Google admits data mining student emails in its free education apps 2014-... - 0 views

  •  
    "by Jeff Gould, SafeGov.org Friday, January 31, 2014 When it introduced a new privacy policy designed to improve its ability to target users with ads based on data mining of their online activities, Google said the policy didn't apply to students using Google Apps for Education. But recent court filings by Google's lawyers in a California class action lawsuit against Gmail data mining tell a different story: Google now admits that it does data mine student emails for ad-targeting purposes outside of school, even when ad serving in school is turned off, and its controversial consumer privacy policy does apply to Google Apps for Education."

    Chris Hoofnagle, director of BCLT's privacy programs | 3/6/13 "...We need to be less infatuated with "the cloud," which to some extent is a marketing fad. Many of the putative benefits of the cloud are disclaimed in these services' terms of service. For instance, a 2009 survey of 31 contracts found that, "…In effect, a number of providers of consumer-oriented Cloud services appear to disclaim the specific fitness of their services for the purpose(s) for which many customers will have specifically signed up to use them." The same researchers found that providers' business models were related to the generosity of terms. This militates towards providers that charge some fee for service as opposed to "free" ones that monetize user data. We should charge our IT professionals with the duty of documenting problems with outsourced services. To more objectively understand the cloud phenomenon, we should track the real costs associated with outsourcing, including outages, the costs of managing the relationship with Google, and the technical problems that users experience. Outsourcing is not costless. We could learn that employees have simply been transferred from the operation of CalMail to the management of bMail. We should not assume that systems mean fewer people-they may appropriately require meaningful staffing to fulfill our needs. As the expiration date of system wide Google contract approaches in June 2015, these metrics will help us make an economical decision. Finally, there are technical approaches that, if effective, could blunt, but not completely eliminate, the privacy problems created by cloud services. Encryption tools, such as CipherCloud, exist to mask data from Google itself. This can help hide the content of messages, reduce data mining risks from Google, and cause the government to have to come to Berkeley officials to gain access to content. The emergence of these services indicates that there is a shared concern about s

    "Risposto da Alessia Nera su 26 Gennaio 2011 a 10:45 Confermo. L' Account Didasca è un benefit che DIDASCA - The First Italian Cyber Schools for Lifelong Learning attribuisce: ai propri Soci agli Operatori (Dirigenti, Insegnanti, Personale Ata) che prestano servizio nel Sistema Scolastico Nazionale e che si propongono di utilizzare il libro di testo digitale My DIDASpedia nello svolgimento della loro attività professionale. Gli Studenti possono diventare Soci di DIDASCA versando una tantum la quota associativa di 10 euro. Si tratta di un investimento quanto mai vantaggioso, perché esso consente loro di accedere alle Google Apps for Education di DIDASCA per tutto il resto della vita attiva."

One Planet, One Internet: A Call To the International Community to Fight Against Mass S... - 0 views

  •  
    January 22, 2014 | By Katitza Rodriguez "We aren't going to let the NSA and its allies ruin the Internet. Inspired by the memory of Aaron Swartz, fueled by our victory against SOPA and ACTA, the global digital rights community are uniting to fight back. On February 11, on the Day We Fight Back, the world will demand an end to mass surveillance in every country, by every state, regardless of boundaries or politics. The SOPA and ACTA protests were successful because we all took part, as a community. As Aaron Swartz put it, everybody "made themselves the hero of their own story." We can set a date, but we need everyone, all the users of the Global Internet, to make this a movement. Here's part of our plan (but it's just the beginning). Last year, before Ed Snowden had spoken to the world, digital rights activists united on 13 Principles. The Principles spelled out just why mass surveillance was a violation of human rights, and gave sympathetic lawmakers and judges a list of fixes they could apply to the lawless Internet spooks. On the day we fight back, we want the world to sign onto those principles. We want politicians to pledge to uphold them. We want the world to see we care. Here's how you can join the effort: Send an email to rights (AT) eff.org confirming your interest in participating in this action and receiving updates. Let us know what you would like to do in your own country so we can send you more information and amplify your voice. Visit TheDayWeFightBack.org and Take Action. Join your fellow global citizens and, sign the 13 Necessary and Proportionate Principles here: https://en.necessaryandproportionate.org/take-action/EFF Use social media tools to announce your participation. Develop memes, tools, websites, and do whatever else you can to encourage others to participate. Be creative -- plan your own actions and pledge. Go to the streets. Promote the Principles in your own country. Then, let us know what your plan is, s

    "Le nuove funzioni introdotte per combattere i troll costringono ad usare Google+: si levano le polemiche, anche dai fondatori del Tubo Roma - Per scardinare l'anonimato dietro cui si nascondono i troll e spingere in questo modo al miglioramento della qualità dei commenti inseriti su YouTube, Google aveva deciso di vincolare gli interventi in risposta ai video caricati all'utilizzo di identità Google+ e di fornire agli autori del contenuto caricato un sistema di filtri basati su parole chiave che permetta di controllare in anticipo cosa viene scritto. Tuttavia ciò ha causato aspre critiche da parte di molti utenti che per il momento non sembrano apprezzare il cambiamento."

Aggiornamento dei Termini di servizio - Norme e principi - Google - 2 views

    " Introduzione Termini di servizio Aggiornamenti 11 novembre 2013 Riepilogo delle modifiche Aggiornamento dei Termini di servizio 11 ottobre 2013 Stiamo aggiornando i Termini di servizio di Google. I nuovi Termini verranno pubblicati online il 11 novembre 2013 ed è possibile leggerli qui. Dato che molti utenti sono allergici ai testi legali, per comodità è disponibile un riepilogo in un linguaggio semplice. Abbiamo apportato tre cambiamenti: Primo, un chiarimento su come il nome e la foto del profilo potrebbero apparire nei prodotti Google (fra cui recensioni, pubblicità e in altri contesti commerciali). Puoi controllare come la tua foto e il tuo nome appaiono negli annunci mediante l'impostazione Convalide condivise. Secondo, un promemoria relativo all'utilizzo sicuro dei dispositivi mobili. Terzo, dettagli sull'importanza di mantenere riservata la password. Ecco qualche dettaglio aggiuntivo: ..."
  •  
    Bell'esempio di chiarezza comunicativa sull'uso fatto dei dati degli utenti e su come gli utenti possono gestirlo, con un annuncio che traduce in linguaggio per umani il legalese dei cambiamenti alle condizioni di servizio, e con un mese di anticipo. Può darsi che abbia incoraggiato questa chiarezza il desiderio di smontare una certa paranoia verso le reti sociali basate negli Stati Uniti e in particolare verso Google, suscitata dall'affare PRISM della NSA rivelata da Snowden quest'estate. PRISM è grave, però siamo noi a barattare o non la nostra privacy contro servizi che riteniamo utili, quindi la responsabilità è nostra, anche se siamo stati maleducati da software e servizi informatici di cui cmq devi accettare le condizioni per utilizzarli... E a prescindere delle motivazioni, questa chiarezza è positiva.
