How to Shop for Free Online Web applications increasingly integrate third-party services. The integration introduces new security challenges due to the complexity for an application to coordinate its internal states with those of the component services and the web client across the Internet. In this paper, we study the security implications of this problem to merchant websites that accept payments through third-party cashiers (e.g., PayPal, Amazon Payments and Google Checkout), which we refer to as Cashier-as-a-Serv

Question Time - Creative & Digital Industries
Employers in the creative industries tend to be small or medium-sized enterprises and consequently they are not always represented at careers fairs. The Creative and Digital Question Time event solves this problem, giving you opportunities to network and chat with employers from areas such as social media, design, branding and graphic arts, ask the questions you always wanted answering and find out more about their day-to-day work and how you can enter these types of jobs. This event is one of
Games Technologies for Learning
The Games Technologies for Learning report explores the ways in which games technologies can be used to enhance teaching and learning, and provides advice for schools and colleges wishing to introduce...
This ten minute video is an animation of a "game show" called "Digestion Questions." The characters are cliche'd and over-exaggerated high school students (the cheerleader, the slacker, and the nerd), and the purpose is comedy-learning. I recommend you consider muting the sound and stop the video after each question and ask the students to answer before the character provides it. The voices of the characters could be distracting.

2.3 Why we value play Play is notoriously difficult to define, but this in itself is not problematic. What is important is that practitioners, parents and children within a setting share their ideas about what constitutes play and that we, as adults, are clear about why we value play. In order to do this, you need to take a step back and think about what you think play does and, from there, consider why it is valuable. In Activity 2 you though
