Better Quiz Status Information:
We were seeing errors in the online system when quizzes were reset while students were still taking them. Now, student quiz status is clearer for the instructor. The following is now true:
In the next few weeks, when accessing http://healthcenter21.com, you may notice you’re being re-directed to a different website. The new website should have the URL of https://learn.aeseducation.com. Why the change?
You may notice the original website, http://healthcenter21.com, does not contain an “s” at the end of “http.” When an “s” is present, it indicates you are viewing the website over a secure connection. If you’re like me, you know secured is always better than not secured, but what does it really mean?
According to ssl.com, “Anytime you view a web site information is sent from your computer to the web server and from the web server to your computer. The transmission of this information is normally sent in ‘plain text’, meaning anyone would be able to read it should they see it.” That doesn’t seem like such a big deal right? Unless I’m making a purchase, or giving out pertinent personal information, I expected that my information would go between my computer and the server. The bigger problem is that this information doesn’t just go between my computer and one server; it travels amongst many computers/servers. This allows a greater chance of information being stolen.
Does seeing the “s” in “https” guarantee your information is secure? Unfortunately not. So how can you be sure your information is protected?
The website, ssl.com, continued to explain that when viewing websites that are secure, there should be a “lock” icon in the window of the browser (however, not in the actual content area of the page). Again, I recognized this icon, but did not realize the information this “lock” contains. By clicking or double-clicking on the lock you will see details of the site’s security. You want to make sure you click on this icon, especially when you will be giving out personal information. Several fraudulent sites have fooled users by displaying a picture of the icon leading the user to think the site was secure. However, by clicking on the lock you should see information about the security certificate, your connection, and possibly if you’ve ever visited the site before. Each browser (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, etc.) has a slightly different format, but each will show something similar, thus letting you know the site you are viewing is truly secure.
So why are we making the switch? Although we do not gather much personal information from you, we still want to make sure your privacy (along with your students’ privacy) is protected. Our secure site now allows us to give you that added reassurance.
