Abelard to Apple : the fate of American colleges and universities by Richard A DeMillo( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The vast majority of American college students attend two thousand or so private and public institutions that might be described as the Middle--reputable educational institutions, but not considered equal to the elite and entrenched upper echelon of the Ivy League and other prestigious schools. Richard DeMillo has a warning for these colleges and universities in the Middle: If you do not change, you are heading for irrelevance and marginalization. In "Abelard to Apple", DeMillo argues that these institutions, clinging precariously to a centuries-old model of higher education, are ignoring the social, historical, and economic forces at work in today's world. In the age of iTunes, open source software, and for-profit online universities, there are new rules for higher education. DeMillo, who has spent years in both academia and in industry, explains how higher education arrived at its current parlous state and offers a road map for the twenty-first century. He describes the evolving model for higher education, from European universities based on a medieval model to American land-grant colleges to Apple's iTunes u and MIT's OpenCourseWare. He offers ten rules to help colleges reinvent themselves (including "Focus on what differentiates you") and argues for a focus on teaching undergraduates. DeMillo's message--for colleges and universities, students, alumni, parents, employers, and politicians--is that any college or university can change course if it defines a compelling value proposition (one not based in "institutional envy" of Harvard and Berkeley) and imagines an institution that delivers it

Even data bases that lie can be compromised by Richard A DeMillo( Book )

Users can compromise data bases by asking a series of questions, even when the data systems are allowed to lie. (Author)
Revolution in higher education by Richard A DeMillo( Recording )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses innovations in higher education that lower the cost and increase accessibility such as MOOCs, Khan Academy, educational technology, and research on learning and the brain
Space-Time Trade-Offs in Structured Programming( Book )

Combinatorial graph embedding by Richard A DeMillo( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Let G, G' be directed graphs. A combinatorial embedding of G into G' is an identification of each x an element of V(G) with a set of vertices S a subset of V(G') such that each S is bounded in size by a constant independent of <V(G)> and each arc in G is carried into a directed path of length bounded by a constant independent of <V(G)>. This concept has formed the basis for a number of theoretical studies and the papers collected here are representative of - with one major exception - the state-of-the-art with regard to graph embedding

Software project forecasting by Richard A DeMillo( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We have argued that a major use of software metrics is in the forecasting problem for software projects. By analogy with weather forecasting, we may characterize the current state of knowledge in software forecasting as the gathering of portents. While these may be useful and sometimes decisive in project management, they are prescientific and qualitative. Further, it seems very unlikely that the portents can be developed into a useful theory of forecasting. To develop scientific forecasting tools, a rational way of predicting the future from historical primary data is required. It is also important that the primary data and the measurements used to obtain it satisfy some basic methodological requirements -- for example, the hypotheses developed from the measurements should be meaningful in the sense implied by measurement theory. The statistical approach, seeking to predict future events on the basis of historical patterns, seems to be an attractive short range approach to the forecasting problem. The goal of the exact method is to be able to apply largescale computation to many micropredictions to synthesize a quantitative forecast

Software engineering and environment : an object-oriented perspective by Phillip C.-Y Sheu( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<Em>Software Engineering and Environment</em> examines the various aspects of software development, describing a number of software life cycle models. Twelve in-depth chapters discuss the different phases of a software life cycle, with an emphasis on the object-oriented paradigm. In addition to technical models, algorithms, and programming styles, the author also covers several managerial issues key to software project management. Featuring an abundance of helpful illustrations, this cogent work is an excellent resource for project managers, programmers, and other computer scientists involved in software production
