Academic Integrity in Web Based Distance Education
TLRPTIL Volume 49, Number 2, ISSN 8756-3894
This paper reviews the literature relative to academic dishonesty in WBDE settings assuming the average class size to be 30-50 students with the instructor filling the role of facilitator, concept expert, grader and mentor when necessary. It shows that some common stereotypes about academic integrity and WBDE are unsubstantiated. In addition, it presents a number of methods that distance educators can use to further protect against cheating in WBDE settings. While these methods were derived assuming a relatively small class size, such safeguards can be just as easily implemented into larger course section(s) complete with 100 or more students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
