CheaterCam to Bust Cheaters in Online Classes

Illustration for article titled CheaterCam to Bust Cheaters in Online Classes

The rise of online classes at colleges and universities has brought with it a rise in cheating by unscrupulous students who know there's nothing to stop them from busting out the textbook during a test if they're taking it at home in their underwear. Well, we all know how teachers feel about cheating: They're against it. Well, some schools are calling on gadgets to help prevent remote cheating.

Alabama's Troy University plans to force students taking online classes to install 360-degree webcams for test-taking. Special software will be able to automatically detect "suspicious activity" for the professor to check out later. How that software will work is beyond me, but boy am I glad Blam doesn't have a webcam trained on me while I work from home. There's a lot of "suspicious activity" going on that is just none of his damned business.
