Effective strategies to prevent cheating in distance learning courses

February 9, 2017 at 2:00 pm EST

Presented by Schoolcraft College (MI) Instructional Designers:

No one really knows when the first teacher gave the first group of students the first assessment, but we can guarantee you this – somebody cheated on it. That’s how old this problem is. And as teaching, students, classrooms, and technology have evolved, cheating has remained a prevalent problem.

Today, there’s a concern that cheating is more common in distance learning courses, when in fact there are several studies indicating the percentage of students who cheat online is about the same as it is face-to-face – although the ways in which students cheat do vary. Because of that, there are a lot of tools available for us to catch students cheating in distance learning courses, but this session will focus on three ways that we can prevent it from happening in the first place.

This is a must-attend webinar for higher education professionals, including:

  • Professor, Instructor, Lecturer
  • Instructional Designers
  • Academic Technologist
