eCampus News covers the intersection of technology and innovation in higher education.

We focus on how technology can help colleges deliver instruction more effectively, enhance the student experience, and keep costs down – helping campus leaders in their search for a more sustainable business model as the higher-education landscape evolves.

This has been another great week for eCampus News.

This week’s featured stories include developments in adaptive learning, the most popular ways to stop cheating in online college courses, how MOOCs are latching on to pop culture to increase public awareness of the massive courses, how university libraries will remain relevant with technological updates that cater to evolving student needs, university spying, Google’s partnership with edX and the new alliance between publishing giant Pearson and West Virginia University at Parkersburg.

Bonus stories include how students use social media to research schools before they make a commitment; employers’ perception of online degrees; and how online education attracts student attention by focusing on pop culture phenomenons, like zombies.
