Cheating in online classes

2 Mar

So far, I have not taught an online course. One of the reasons I hesitate is my concern about the validity of assessment.  Or to put it more bluntly, it seems too easy to cheat. A recent article on Bright, reinforces my concerns: It’s about a company called StudyPool.

“Studypool, one of a bevy of on-demand tutoring platforms entering the ed-tech landscape in the past couple years, is being used as a vibrant marketplace for cheating and plagiarism.”
