The inaugural Social Media for Learning in Higher Education Conference #SocMedHE15 will be held at Sheffield Hallam University.

ABOUT THIS PROGRAMME
Seyi Rhodes investigates how some teachers and pupils are coping with the pressure of examinations by bending the rules and sometimes cheating the system. He interviews whistleblowers from schools across the UK who reveal the tricks of the trade, including lenient marking, altering students' test papers and grades, inflating schools' GCSE pass marks and even removing difficult pupils from the school register. The film also looks at how easy it is to cheat through university, exploring the multimillion-pound industry where students pay someone else to write essays for them.
