Why Identity Verification Matters for Online Courses

Short abstract
How do institutions ensure that students, who take online programs,  be compared to students that are taking traditional face-to-face programs? Should both their degrees have the same value? They can. At Verificient, our thesis is: Credential equal currency, which in turn results to upward mobility.
Extended abstract
How do institutions know that the person receiving credit for an online course is the person actually completing the coursework and passing the assessment? Verifying the identity of students, while preserving the academic integrity and brand of an organization’s reputational standing – is no longer an option but becoming a requirement. What’s the acceptable balance between a student’s experience vs. an organization’s right to safe guard their online programs, while also complying to federal government standards of identity verification? How can online programs contribute to the affordability of education and comply to government standards by deterring, preventing and stopping financial aid fraud which is a taxing cost to government and tax payers, as required by the 2008 Higher Education Opportunity Act.
