Among the topics: Cengage and McGraw-Hill to merge; judge orders implementation of state authorization; "Teaching in a Digital Age."

May 1, 2019

Several developments relevant to "Inside Digital Learning" readers received coverage in Inside Higher Ed this week. They include:

  • Cengage and McGraw-Hill Education announced today that they would merge, creating the second-biggest publishing and learning company behind Pearson. More details are available here.
  • The U.S. Department of Education will be required to implement long-delayed rules around state authorization of online programs following a judge’s ruling on a lawsuit against the department. The rules, proposed during the Obama administration, were to set to go into effect last July. Two months before they were due for implementation, the department delayed them until 2020, citing confusion from institutions and lobbying groups.
  • Inside Higher Ed published a print-on-demand compilation, "Teaching in a Digital Age." You may download a copy here, free. And you may sign up here for a free webcast on the themes of the booklet on Wednesday, May 22, at 2 p.m. Eastern.
