Virtual classrooms crash in North Carolina

Virtual classrooms for North Carolina’s K-12 schools crashed Monday morning, the state’s first day of school, after thousands of students attempted to log in at the same time. The outage of the state’s NCEdCloud service, a portal that connects students and teachers to learning management systems like Canvas and PowerSchool, appeared to affect districts statewide. The system's now back online, but state officials are investigating why the platform, which has 2 million registered users, suddenly failed. Ryan Johnston has the story on StateScoop.

Universities walk back their reopening plans

Though hundreds of universities announced over the summer intentions to bring students back to campus, recent increases in the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in more than 20 states is forcing administrators to rethink their decisions. Brown University, the University of Pennsylvania, George Washington University, Dickinson College and others are among those to have reversed course. Other institutions, meanwhile, are staying the course. Betsy Foresman has the details.


Michigan State's website was hacked

Users who made purchases from Michigan State University's online shop between last October and June may have had their credit card numbers stolen, administrators announced last week. The cyberattack, which compromised the credit card information of about 2,600 customers, is the second malware infection at the institution this year, following a ransomware attack discovered in May. The university's technology department is now working with law enforcement to investigate the incident and says the administrators of the website will undergo "advanced" security awareness training. Colin Wood has more.
