Digital Learning in 'Inside Higher Ed' This Week

Among the topics: lawsuit over inclusive access; academic fraud in online courses; high-impact practices for student success.

February 5, 2019
 

Inside Higher Ed covered several topics important to "Inside Digital Learning" readers this week. They include:

  • A local bookstore has challenged a South Carolina technical college's "inclusive access" program for curricular materials, arguing that it fails to meet federal requirements to let students easily opt out of having their textbook costs folded into tuition or course fees. The programs are increasingly popular on campuses as a way to cut students' textbook costs and encourage that they have their course materials at the start of the semester, but lawsuits like the one against Trident Technical College are designed to ensure that they actually save students money.
  • The National Collegiate Athletic Association punished the University of Missouri at Columbia for a set of rules violations, including that a former tutor completed coursework -- including virtually all work in three online courses -- for athletes in three sports.
  • Inside Higher Ed today published a compilation of articles on high-impact practices for student success, several of which focus on the use of digital tools.
