Lesson 14: Online Student Ethics

If you're like most online students, you're very responsible about your schoolwork. You're also very honest about your schoolwork. Unfortunately, there might be some students who think they can get away with cheating in an online course. These students need to realize that instructors have methods of deterring cheating—particularly on exams—and detecting plagiarism. CLC has a no tolerance policy for cheating and plagiarism. Plagiarism includes copying information from websites to post in the discussion forum so just to be safe make sure you are always posting original words, even if you use other resources to help you formulate your thoughts. 

Cheating and Plagiarism policies can be found in the Casa Loma Catalog and Student Handbook. It’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with them before you begin your classes.
