As the world has become increasingly linked through the Internet, more and more avenues for obtaining information have emerged for students of all levels. This wealth of information has proven to be fertile ground for academic plagiarism. This paper presents current research about the scope and nature of the problem as well as our strategies for confronting academic dishonesty in web-based courses. We will demonstrate our academic dishonesty web portal and explain our intended uses of it in our required Inquiry into the Profession course in Kent State University's College and Graduate School of education.
