Online Plagiarism: What it Is, and What the Consequences Are - Distance - 8 views

    "No matter what type of school you attend, it's important to know the definition of plagiarism. The more you know about it, the easier it will be for you to avoid doing it by mistake."

    Thanks for sharing this video link. It is perfect for me to use with my students this week as we are reviewing ideas about plagiarism from last term. As Lao students preparing to study university in Australia, they have many language challenges and are struggling with the idea of 'putting something into your own voice'. The tip of talking ideas through before writing is something we have suggested, but I think the video might make a greater impact. Thank you, Maggie!
    Kris, it's a goofy video, but I think it's something students can relate to and they'll remember. Like you said, it might make a greater impact than just the teacher telling them not to plagiarize.

A Lesson in Academic Integrity | Faculty Focus - 1 views

  • One of their defenses for the student’s reasoning was that the consequence for taking credit for someone else’s work was significantly smaller than the consequence for taking a zero for his own failure to complete the assignment.
    Hands on lesson in what it feels like to be plagiarized.
    Thanks for sharing, Debi. I'd be interested in trying something similiar...

  • A New York University professor’s blog post is opening a rare public window on the painful classroom consequences of using plagiarism-detection software to aggressively police cheating students.
  • Forget about cheating detection,” he said in an interview. “It is a losing battle.”
  • The professor’s blog post described how crusading against cheating poisoned the class environment and therefore dragged down his teaching evaluations.
  • ...2 more annotations...
  • Worse, Mr. Ipeirotis’ campaign aroused mistrust. Students were anxious, discussions contentious. He found teaching to be exhausting rather than refreshing. Dealing with the 22 cheating cases sucked up more than 45 hours “in completely unproductive discussions,” forcing him to focus attention on the least-deserving students, Mr. Ipeirotis said.
  • In Mr. Ipeirotis’ view, if there’s one big lesson from his semester in the cheating trenches, it’s this: Rather than police plagiarism, professors should design assignments that cannot be plagiarized.

e-Learning Acupuncture: Don't police plagiarism! Instead design assignments that cannot... - 1 views

  • I think it is difficult to design assignments that are completely void of any risk of plagiarism; however, assignments can be designed that minimize the risk considerably (i.e. they provide disincentives to plagiarism). I’ve got a few ideas (most are applicable to the online classroom as well as the face-to-face classroom) and many of them involve student-to-student interaction, which is a bonus to those instructors that are seeking to make their courses more interactive:
  • Group work.
  • Discussion
  • ...4 more annotations...
  • Presentations
  • Peer review
  • Retain and display past student work for future classes in the form of a public wiki.
  • Have student’s build/create something that isn’t a term paper.

  • In discussions among both new and veteran online instructors, some of the most persistently expressed concerns center upon issues of academic honesty. How does one conduct assessments in an online course? How can you be sure that the person taking the test is actually your student? And that they are acting alone, without the book? With the proliferation of online term-paper mills, how can you be sure that the essay or term paper you receive is actually your student’s work?
  • the same technologies which seem to offer new opportunities for cheating also offer new ways to detect and prevent cheating.

  • The Shadow Scholar The man who writes your students' papers tells his story Jonathan Barkat for The Chronicle Review Enlarge Image $().ready(function() { $('#enlarge-popup').jqm({onShow:chronShow, onHide:chronHide, trigger:'', modal: 'true'}); }); Jonathan Barkat for The Chronicle Review By Ed Dante Editor's note: Ed Dante is a pseudonym for a writer who lives on the East Coast. Through a literary agent, he approached The Chronicle wanting to tell the story of how he makes a living writing papers for a custom-essay company and to describe the extent of student cheating he has observed. In the course of editing his article, The Chronicle reviewed correspondence Dante had with clients and some of the papers he had been paid to write. In the article published here, some details of the assignment he describes have been altered to protect the identity of the student.
  • In the past year, I've written roughly 5,000 pages of scholarly literature, most on very tight deadlines. But you won't find my name on a single paper.
  • I've written toward a master's degree in cognitive psychology, a Ph.D. in sociology, and a handful of postgraduate credits in international diplomacy.
  • ...4 more annotations...
  • 261 percent of undergraduates have admitted to some form of cheating on assignments and exams.
  • I've worked on bachelor's degrees in hospitality, business administration, and accounting. I've written for courses in history, cinema, labor relations, pharmacology, theology, sports management, maritime security, airline services, sustainability, municipal budgeting, marketing, philosophy, ethics, Eastern religion, postmodern architecture, anthropology, literature, and public administration.
  • I've attended three dozen online universities. I've completed 12 graduate theses of 50 pages or more. All for someone else.
  • The 75-page paper on business ethics ultimately expanded into a 160-page graduate thesis, every word of which was written by me. I can't remember the name of my client, but it's her name on my work. We collaborated for months. As with so many other topics I tackle, the connection between unethical business practices and trade liberalization became a subtext to my everyday life. So, of course, you can imagine my excitement when I received the good news: "thanx so much for uhelp ican going to graduate to now".
    One tactic is to proactively teach the nuances of plagiarism in an engaging way. Here's a link to a series of games that help all students (k-12 & Higher Ed) understand the issues. While these games won't stop the kind of abuses described in the article, they will help teachers prove they have taken the necessary steps to inform and train their students about plagiarism and plagiarism detection.
    This is a monster problem...I have created documentation outlining the requirements for an online student to find a proctor. This is useful for online exams; however, it does not scratch the surface for written work. A Google search for "pay someone to take online class" returned over 300M results, and seems to be a growing business. I think this article proves that. I nearly spit my drink all over my monitor while reading the last paragraph about the paper written for an ethics class and the womans grammatically-challenged response of thanks! If we can only figure out a way to address this issue in an online setting, we would be sitting pretty, academically & financially!
