I’m participating in a Sloan-C course on academic integrity in online courses. There have been wonderful suggestions and resources and I’ll post some of those here.
It is disheartening, though, that cheating is endemic on college campuses–up to 60-70%! It shouldn’t be surprising; after all we see examples of it in government and business conduct, but it’s still frustrating to see so much.
One clear point that’s made during this course is that academic integrity has been an issue long before online education began. I’ve stated that before and I’ll probably reiterate that point: we should do what we can as educators to help guide learning in a way that lessens the ability to cheat.
