Do Study Sites Make the Grade? WSJ article

WSJ posted an article on study sites - Course Hero, Cramster, eNotes, Koofers, SparkNotes - sites that provide a way for students to share class notes including tests, consult with each other about homework, etc. These sites are aimed at college students. The big question as usual: Is this sharing/collaborating? Or cheating? What can faculty do other than create new kinds of assignments and exercises? (Thanks to Allison Kipta. Talk about cheating! All I have to do is get up in the morning and check Google Buzz to see what good stuff she's turned up. ;)
