Choosing an Online Learning System: Watching out for Diploma Mills, Pt. 8


Choosing an Online Learning System: Watching out for Diploma Mills, Pt. 8

Coggno Inc. | Feb, 3 2009

Be sure to study the university website and reflect on its advertising strategies. One warning sign that the online learning system you’re eyeing is actually a diploma mill is a sense of urgency in the advertising of the institution.

Oftentimes prospective students are encouraged to enroll immediately, before tuition or fees are increased, or told that they qualify for a fellowship, scholarship or grant. Basically, if it sounds much too good to be true, you have a reason to be suspicious.

Did the institution advertise using spam? You can be fairly sure it’s a mill.

If you suspect that you may have been drawn into a fake learning system, take action and pull out. Remember that an online learning systems should be challenging–it should feel like coursework. Very little interaction with professors is another flashing red sign telling you that your university is actually a mill. Often mills provide no corrections, meaningful comments, or even grades for your work.
