 For
many
of
us
the
word
education
has
a
simple
meaning.
Defined
 by
Merriam‐Webster
English
Dictionary
in
two
parts:
1:
(a)
the
action
or
 process
of
educating
or
of
being
educated;
also:
a
stage
of
such
a
 process.
(b)
The
knowledge
and
development
resulting
from
an
 educational
process.
2:
The
field
of
study
that
deals
mainly
with
 methods
of
teaching
and
learning
in
schools.
Now
with
the
advent
of
 Computers
and
the
World
Wide
Web,
Electronic
Learning
also
known
as
 Computer
Based
Learning
has
taken
a
dominating
role
in
the
classrooms
 of
higher
education.
E
Learning
has
been
defined
as
“pedagogy
 empowered
by
digital
technology”(Nichols).

According
to
the
Sloan
 Report
based
on
a
poll
of
academic
scholars,
in
2006,
nearly
3.5
Million
 students
were
participation
in
on‐line
learning
at
institutions
of
higher
 education
in
the
United
States
and
this
value
is
only
expected
to
 continue
to
keep
growing.
But
as
the
beast
continues
to
grow
and
gain
 momentum
is
there
an
Achilles
Heel
that
is
waiting
to
be
reveal?
 
 
 For
generations
we
have
been
looking
to
make
learning
and
 teaching
more
effective.
The
majority
of
higher
education
universities
 have
turned
to
technology.
Technology
in
the
flavor
of
Email,
 PowerPoint,
Faculty
Course
Questionnaires,
Clickers,
VPN,
and
Online
 Course
Databases
all
which
have
their
own
unique
feature
that
help
 both
students
and
professors.
Along
with
giving
every
member
of
the
 campus
the
ability
to
share
and
look
up
any
piece
of
information
the
 temptation
to
play
someone
else
work
off
as
your
is
higher
and
higher
 the
more
it
becomes
integrated
into
learning
as
well
as
research
tactics.

 
 
 In
the
academic
world,
plagiarism
is
a
very
serious
offense
and
 can
lead
to
a
variety
of
punishments
ranging
form
a
failing
grade
in
the
 course
or
assignment,
probation,
community
service,
and
suspension
or
 expulsion.
The
pressure
on
college
students
is
high
and
the
need
 students
feel
to
produce
high
quality
assignments
very
quickly
is
what
 lead
to
most
plagiarism.
The
accessibility
to
technology
allows
students
 to
copy
and
paste
information
from
different
sources.
Although
 plagiarism
is
not
copyright
infringement,
both
terms
refer
to
the
same
 offense.
Many
offenders
caught
claim
their
transgression
was
 unintentional
by
failing
to
make
the
proper
citation.
 
 
 While
the
majority
of
individuals
caught
for
plagiarizing
work
are
 college
and
university
students,
faculty
are
not
infallible.
One
of
the
 largest
professors
to
have
been
found
to
be
guilty
of
plagiarism
is
 Professor
Alan
Dershowitz
who
was
a
professor
for
Harvard
Law
 School.
Found
in
the
Harvard
Plagiarism
Archive,
in
September
of
2003
 his
work
titled
A
Case
For
Israel
was
reported
that
22
or
the
52
endnotes
 to
the
first
two
chapters
were
lifted
from
the
1984
book
of
Joan
Peters
 From
Time
Immemorial.
Not
only
did
Harvard
experience
the
 embarrassment
of
a
trusted
faculty
member’s
mistake,
the
University
of
 Colorado
at
Boulder
has
encountered
itsown
plagiarizing
professor.
In
 2006
accusations
were
made
against
Ward
Churchill’s
piece
titled
On
 the
Justice
of
Roosting
Chickens.
Published
on
September
12,
2001,
many
 critics
came
down
on
the
work
and
cited
research
misconduct.
Legal
 scholar
John
LaVelle
and
Historian
Guenter
Lewy
as
well
as
Sociologist
 Thomas
Brown
claimed
that
Churchill
had
mischaracterized
their
work
 (Jaschik,
LaVelle,
Lewy).
The
University
of
Colorado
at
Boulder
took
the
 accusations
very
seriously
and
ordered
an
investigation
in
2005.
A
year
 later
they
investigative
committee
had
found
Ward
Churchill
in
 violation
of
research
misconduct
and
guilty
of
four
counts
of
falsifying
 information,
two
counts
of
fabricating
information,
two
counts
of
 plagiarizing
the
work
of
others,
improperly
reporting
the
results
of
 studies,
and
failing
to
comply
with
established
standards
regarding
 authors
names
on
publications.
Terminated
from
the
university
by
a
 vote
of
eight
to
one,
university
president
Hank
Brown
commented,
“This
 case
was
an
example
not
of
mistakes,
but
an
effort
to
falsify
history
and
 fabricate
history
and
in
the
final
analysis,
this
individual
did
not
express
 regret
or
apologize.
This
is
a
faculty
that
has
an
outstanding
reputation
 and
this
move
today
protects
that
reputation."(Jeffrey).

 The
use
of
Internet
makes
students
less
creative,
Cheating,
Anti
Plagiarism.

 Does
the
place
of
the

Wide
Web
make
it
easier
for
plagiarism
and
cheating
to
 transpire?
