When we allow our children to use apps for online courses, we hope to have given them a convenient way to study - making them part of the 90 million who opt for the medium annually. However, there have been concerns over the content being provided by apps for the about 45 million schoolchildren who opted for online courses last year. Some apps provide incomplete and incorrect answers, others force children to spend money. Then there are those that show inappropriate content, luring kids into dating friends of the opposite sex. Regulations for controlling content don't seem to be working and stricter rules are needed to prevent gullible students from becoming victims of such rackets. Let not wrongdoers get away with attempts to spoil impressionable kids.
