I have recently completed a manuscript and I want it to submit to the arXiv. But there I find that there is an endorsement requirement. But since I am quite new in this field (and this is my first time wanting to submit to arXiv), I don’t know how to find an endorser myself. I have mailed the admin also but in reply they also told me that searching for an endorser is a responsibility of the author himself. So, can anyone help me regarding the process as to how to find an endorser?

In Is it financially worth it to teach a MOOC (e.g. Coursera)? I asked whether it is financially worth to teach a MOOC. From the answer I got I gathered it is, but not Coursera is not the platform to go to – Udemy would be better regarding this objective.

My follow up question is now: Which MOOC or other teaching platform is the financially most profitable for the teacher(s)?

I know that there are other reason to teach online than the money and I count them as valid for myself. But regarding those I have no question for now.

42 y.o. software engineer here. I enrolled in a part-time program in Russia (where I’m from) a few years ago and the PhD is about 75% done, I’d say. The subject is automated planning (artificial intelligence). I do not plan or want to become a full-time academic, but I do intend to work in artificial intelligence, and I think I can contribute to the field scientifically in the course of my work.

Is it worth trying to find a part-time program in the UK or Western Europe that will be:

  1. Happy to build on my existing work
  2. Allow me to finish the work in 12-18 months
  3. Under 10,000 GBP in total costs
  4. In respectable institution

I’m UK citizen. Finishing in Russia is an option, but it’s been getting difficult in the final phases, largely because I don’t live there and don’t have a lot of time to visit.

Take any journal with paywalled content. Take the academics that make that journal function: editors, reviewers, etc.

Now, being academics, they are presumably smart enough to start up an online journal of their own. So why don’t they tell the suits in charge of their journal to go fuck themselves, and then they can start their own journal where papers are mostly free -> the small costs are only meant to cover the salary of the academics.

Why does this not happen? Are people just so stupid that they can’t figure this out?

I read on Berkeley will begin removing more than 20,000 video and audio lectures from public view as a result of a Justice Department accessibility order (mirror) (published on 2017-03-06)

The Justice Department, following an investigation, in August determined that the university was violating the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990. The department reached that conclusion after receiving complaints from two employees of Gallaudet University, saying Berkeley’s free online educational content was inaccessible to blind and deaf people because of a lack of captions, screen reader compatibility and other issues.

If a University uploads a video of a course to YouTube, aren’t YouTube captions good enough not to violate the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990?

I am currently in a difficult science class that is important for my major. I have a current GPA of 3.5 that I am very focused on keeping. This semester I had a vacation out of the country that I had been planning for years. I spoke to all my professors about it and only one had any problem with my being unable to make two classes. This professor said that I would be unable to make up any of the class work and would receive a zero in all assignments given during the time I was gone, nor will I be allowed any extra credit to make up for the missed class work. As a result I worked extremely hard at keeping the highest grade possible in the class and when I left on vacation my grade was 97%. After I got back I found out I was pregnant. Sadly there were complications and I was hospitalized and had a miscarriage barely a week later. This caused me to miss an additional class. Though I spoke with the difficult professor about what was going on and offered to provide any documentation required my grade has been dropped to 77%. If my GPA drops too much I will lose my scholarship money and internship opportunities. I have time to withdraw but I really don’t want to waste the time and money. I have never had a professor treat me like this before, is this normal? I would like to hear some educated opinions.

I’ve received an email to meet head of my course in University to discuss the performance of my exam that I had last week where I cheated for it by searching answer for one question on the internet. I did not got caught on the day but I’m sure it’s about cheating that I have meeting with him. I’m not here to justify myself because I know what I’ve done was totally wrong and I’m ready to tell the truth if he asks me about this situation.
My mindset is in panic for almost one month now and I’m not feeling confident about my studies. The exam was not complicated, I would have done enough to pass without cheating.

I’m first year student and there are a lot of expections on me by my family because I’m the only person in my family to be in medical field and who can actually make good money one day.

I recognize my abilities but there is something wrong going on in my mind and because of this matter I’m complicating things hence I cheated for the previous exam where it was not required.

I want you to help me get out of this situation as soon as possible because I’m thinking too much about my future and stressing out. What can I possibly explain to him if he asks me if I’ve cheated and also how to be more confident and trust myself without cheating again?

Thanks,
