There have always been students who knew how to game the system, particularly in the virtual classroom.

Yet, by learning and applying some shrewd strategies, schools can cut down on dishonest behavior, especially in online courses. That's the idea behind How Can I Design Academic Integrity into My Online Programs?, the 20-Minute Mentor video from Magna Publications. You can buy your copy today.
