Drake is gaining a reputation in Canada as purveyor of easy video courses. For some teachers, taking the courses is the way to a quick raise.

I agree, Drakey, someone in Old Main should be aware of the article. I have forward the link to the Professional & Career Development Services Coordinator.

Here's the original story from April

Edit: here's an article from February

Looks like these were mostly phys-ed courses, which is interesting since Drake doesn't offer a PE major. Looks like the problems started when non-PE teacher started to take the class to get promotions.



Not sure Drake did anything wrong here....looks like a lack of oversight in Nova Scotia in allowing non-PE teachers to use this course to upgrade their positions.



I'm pretty sure Drake was already aware of this.



Drake University says the courses were specifically developed for coaches and physical educators...."We are confident that the courses meet the goals for which they were designed," read a statement. "Drake University does not offer an endorsement or master’s degree in coaching or physical education."
