Online Classes are Big Business

A rise in online courses has led to an increase of paid services that pretend to be students and do their jobs for them.

I cheated quite a lot in high school. This is not a typo. I remember writing formulas for chemistry on small pieces of paper that I sealed to the bottoms my dress shoes with transparent tape. When I crossed both my legs, I found the information that I needed in my lap.

This was before the advent of online education. It seems that cheating has become an accepted part of the internet. Entrepreneurs and freelancers are now openly promoting services to help students cheat online educations. These digital cheaters are able to assume the identities of students and then take full online classes.

I reached out to No Need to Study to see if they could offer me an online English Literature course through Columbia University. I received an email from its customer-relations department, who said that they could help me get a ringer so I could take the online course. It could also guarantee that my grades would be at least B. The fee for such an arrangement was $1225.15.

This made it appear official by adding fifteen cents.

I asked for more information to ensure I understood the company and was given a clear reply: “We have a pool academic tutors who can take classes and do course work for our clients.”

No Need to Study even provides reference videos of satisfied customers who show how simple it was to hire someone to take their online classes. Muhammad, a customer, tells us that he hired the company in order to finish his math lab courses. He said he had taken these classes before but that the questions were difficult. So, he looked for a solution. He said, “They got the job done, and they did really. really well.” “They killed my final math class and app class with a 90-percent, and I can assure you I have never achieved a 90 per cent on anything before.”

It's impossible to connect the growth in online-education options with an increase in online cheating. There is no direct correlation between the growth of online education and increased cheating. However, there are more online students which means more potential clients for cheating providers. The 2014 Online Learning Survey revealed that almost 33% of higher education students in the U.S. now enroll online. This is despite the fact that 7 million students are taking at least one class online. The number of online students is a quarter of the student population, according to other statistics. However, there are still millions of potential clients for ambitious providers who offer cheating services.

Online education is expected be a $100-billion global business. This could increase if online degrees have more influence with employers. Online education marketplaces could change higher education. If they can achieve the same status as traditional, on campus degrees, the online education market could transform higher education. That is what many online education advocates want. Kevin Carey, a well known online-education supporter wrote about the quest to establish online education credibility in March in an article in The New York Times entitled “Here’s What Will Truly Make Higher Education More Credible: Online Degrees that Are Officially Seen.”
