Is it too easy to cheat in online college courses? - Joshua Lim, The Columbus Dispatch

Research has found that students are just as likely to cheat in online courses as they would in live courses. An Ohio State student’s entrepreneurial approach to academics cost almost two dozen fellow students some money — and academic discipline. An investigation by the university’s Committee on Academic Misconduct found that an unidentified student completed online course work for 23 other classmates in exchange for payment. All of the students were punished — some with expulsion, for paying what is an unknown amount of money for the cheating. http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2015/05/29/cheating-in-online-course-raises-questions.html
