ProctorU is proud to offer a free training webinar this month about the impact of the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA). The focus of the session will be the the intriguing legal landscape of state authorization for online education programs. Should an online program be registered, licensed or authorized in each state that it offers courses? The answer can vary from state to state and the jury is currently out on the federal guidelines. This webinar will feature a presentation by Patty Milner, program manager at Colorado State University-Pueblo.
Experts in the field believe that even though the current federal law has seen some recent hurdles, the laws will one day be enforced by the U.S. Department of Education and tied into Title IV funding when the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 is reauthorized.
The current issue is that there are 50 sets of laws, written at different times, for different purposes and with different people interpreting what the rules should be.
While finding a clear answer on this issue can be a somewhat daunting task, there are at least five states where educators believe online proctoring may be used instead of registering for authorization there.
