Future of MOOCs—Repurposing for Enterprise Learning?


A variety of massive open online courses, commonly referred to as MOOCs, are available to individuals worldwide. While the long-standing impact of MOOCs on enterprise learning may be obvious, TEC’s research analyst Raluca Druta predicts that enterprise learning itself will have a huge impact on the design and development of MOOCs in the future. But here’s a word of caution for the repurposing of MOOCs.

Eco-mode: Benefits and Risks of Energy-saving Modes of UPS Operation


Many newer uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) systems have an energy-saving operating mode known as “eco-mode” or by some other descriptor. Nevertheless, surveys show that few data centers actually use this mode, because of the known or anticipated side effects. Unfortunately, the marketing materials for these operating modes do not adequately explain the cost/benefit tradeoffs. This paper shows that eco-mode provides a reduction of approximately 2% in data center energy consumption and explains the various limitations and concerns that arise from eco-mode use. Situations where these operating modes are recommended and contraindicated are also described.
