Ohio’s troubled online learning project investigated

By MARY MOGAN EDWARDS, THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

The Ohio inspector general is investigating a troubled joint project by Ohio State University and the state Board of Higher Education to create a clearinghouse of online learning materials. State lawmakers mandated the project during the administration of former Gov. Ted Strickland. An Ohio State spokesman confirmed that the university is “aware of the investigation” and is cooperating. State Department of Higher Education spokesman Jeff Robinson would say only, “If there is something that the IG finds troubling in regard to the clearinghouse that was established under the previous administration, we would certainly support their review.”
