In catching up on my email over the weekend, I saw an interesting article on Wired Campus – “Students Show How to Cheat via YouTube.” Cheating is something that many academics worry about and it seems to be getting more and more attention each year. I have to admit that I have not seen an increase in cheating on tests, but have seen an increase in plagiarism (whether through ignorance or intentional). Certainly the rise in plagiarism is due to the increased availability of materials and sources online. As for cheating, though, what I have seen online and on television seems to imply that cheating has gone hi-tech. This article and accompanying video certainly illustrate this point.
