Choosing an Online Learning System: Watching out for Diploma Mills, Pt. 5

In general, students have an easier time than employers in discovering that an online learning system is actually a diploma mill. Ways to spot a diploma mill range from the obvious (blatant promises of a fake diploma) to more subtle clues.

One clue that an online learning system is actually a mill: academic credit is offered for “life experience.” Other mills allow for degrees to be obtained within a few days or weeks.

Often no teaching facilities, libraries, personnel, publications or research are available. Promotional literature about the learning system may contain grammatical and spelling errors, words or phrases in Latin, extravagant or pretentious language, or sample diplomas.
