Authenticating Identification... No, Just Identifying

Negotiated rule-making on the question of student identity in distance learning suggested a common sense approach and that is now made official in the final regulations from Department of Education. The fast find: search for "identity" on the web page.

The October 27 publication (in the Federal Registry) was among a cluster of final rulings on the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, abbreviated as HEOA. Announcements about similar regulations are made on the Higher Education page of Ed.gov. Although designed as a web page, the site reads a lot like a blog, with stacked entries over time and sidebar hyperlinks to other sources.
