Jonathan’s panel, titled, “State Authorization of Distance Education: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly,” focused on the legal complexities of state regulation of cross-border online education and recent regulatory efforts by the U.S. Department of Education to require that online institutions be authorized in any state in which they enroll students.
