August 30, 2016

“Just as higher education is changing, embracing a revolution in online learning, the cheating business is transforming as well, finding new and more insidious ways to undermine academic integrity,” writes the Chronicle of Higher Education. Through a series of interviews, the Chronicle speaks to both individuals who run “cheating companies” and those who use their services. The article offers analysis of why the majority of people who use these services are not caught, and how the view of higher education as a commercial transaction is threatening the traditional mission of universities as places of higher learning.
