Contract Cheating in the Context of Covid-19: Five Key Ideas to Consider – Webinar Slides

Epigeum invited me to deliver a webinar looking at the particular challenges posed by contract cheating as we deal with the Covid-19 situation. I focused on five key areas, considering particularly how contract cheating services are using Covid-19 to their advantage and encouraging students to buy from them.

You can see the slides I used below (and also on my SlideShare account).


The session went well with no shortage of questions. It was illuminating to look at the type of advertising being used by the sites, with Covid-19 guarantees offered and all kinds of assurances that the firms were still operating and meeting deadlines.

Epigeum have also released the video, which you can watch here.
