A new report from Sloan-C takes up authentication and academic integrity in the online learning environment.  While most schools are doing well with compliance on authentication, Sloan-C offers some pointers on Academic integrity for online learning (to combat the ‘perception’ of greater cheating in online course).  Note that the principles offer some sound advice for hybrid and face-to-face pedagogy as well.   The blog entry offers summary points and a link to the ” “Best Practice Strategies to Promote Academic Integrity in Online Education”. …[which] reflects exemplary principles and practices from online instructors and administrators from 170 higher education institutions in the United States in five core areas: Institutional Context and Commitment, Curriculum and Instruction, Faculty Support, Student Support, and Assessment and Evaluation.”  Both are worth a peek!
