Choosing an Online Learning System: Watching out for Diploma Mills, Pt. 1

Coggno Inc. | Jan, 30 2009

If you’re thinking of working towards a degree, either as a stepping stone to a career change or to make yourself more valuable in your current job, a flexible, affordable online training platform may be right for you. However, in choosing an online learning system, there are some features to watch out for.

A diploma mill (or sometimes “degree mill”) is an organization that awards academic degrees and diplomas based on substandard academic study, or no academic study, and without recognition by official education accrediting bodies.

Students may be led to believe they are engaging in a legitimate learning system and earning an academic degree, while actually they are just creating more profits for the organization.
