Making sure Course Hero doesn’t become college’s villain?

How can we make sure Course Hero doesn’t become college’s villain?

Reported by Inside Higher Ed, Embry-Riddle University created a search engine to help their professors identify proprietary course materials uploaded to Course Hero, including homework assignments, quizzes, and tests, by students to help other students study. So far, this search engine has found 237,293 course artifacts from Embry-Riddle, and takedown requests are far from automatic today.

The takeaway? Students finding academic support in other peers is such a wonderful thing. But maintaining the academic integrity of our courses in a progressively online world is going to continue to be a challenge.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
