Clever Mooc Style open course on cheating in the online environment. All course modules are open and available to you. 


The hastag for this course is #cheatmooc .  Clever, and provocative; can you cheat your way through a mooc? Why would you? What would be gained?  Lots to think about here.

Webcam Proctors Watch Students in Online Courses | MIT Technology Review | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
How can you tell if an online student has done the work? That’s where webcam proctoring comes in.


It’s a simple idea that could prove critical for the expansion of online education. Over the last year, several top universities, including Harvard, Stanford, and MIT, have begun offering free college courses to all comers (see “The Crisis in Higher Education”). After attracting hundreds of thousands of students, these “massive open online courses,” or MOOCs, are now wrestling with how to determine which students are actually completing the coursework and passing exams.

The Timeline feature that Mark Zuckerberg announced in September is now available to all Facebook users. If you’ve already activated Timeline for your own profile, you’re probably in the midst of adjusting to the new layout and testing out the new features. But what you might have overlooked are the minor additions to your Privacy Settings, making this a perfect time to review those settings in and making sure you have the most control over who sees what on your profile.

ABSTRACT

 

Today’s youth inhabit new digital spaces that seem foreign to many adults. These spaces offer unprecedented opportunities for interpersonal connection, but community can break down when people are emboldened by anonymity through pathways that are fast and highly public. Interested in how teens and adults view these ethically charged issues, our partner organizations convened a three-week long series of online conversations with more than 150 parents, teachers, and teens.

 

Our analysis of these conversations revealed that adults exhibited stronger and more consistent patterns of moral and ethical thinking than youth, who tended to show greater concern for the personal consequences of their online actions. These findings suggest that adults have an important role to play in helping teens to become responsible digital citizens.

5 ways online education can keep its students honest

5 ways online education can keep its students honest | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
As online learning platforms like Coursera, Udacity and edX raise the stakes for students with increased partnerships with traditional universities and credit-bearing classes, here are five technologies that can help them thwart cheating.

Via Mark Smithers, Faiz A.H, Dr. Richard NeSmith
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Cheating is pervasive in both face to face and online environments.  I think it's easier to recognize in an online environment where the voice of a student is established in discussion threads.  Ultimately, creating assignments that call for creative and critical thinking and a unique product are the best way to avoid the classic 'answers on the hand' scenarios.
