You want your students to do well in college and get good grades. But what if the answers that get them those good grade are being bought?
Each class can be hundreds of dollars. The pressure is on, and there's a website to help. Wetakeyourclass.com is a website that allows students to pay to cheat.
We Take Your Class offers 'experts' who will take your online class for a fee. Just look at the ad the company has on its website. "I'm a professor so let's get real. The education system is a joke. So don't let the joke be on you."
It can be tempting, and this website banks on that temptation. So teachers have to combat the problem, from varying up online activities to password-protecting classes and even having students use webcams.
We Take Your Class did not want to make an official statement, but one of the founders told us over the phone he stands by their product. The website claims to be a tutoring aid.
The site says, "we are just providing correct answers to your questions. Once we release the answers, it's up to you to submit those answers."
A sales associate from the website says they would take your entire online class for you. That includes exams and homework.
