Transcript of Activity 5: Plagiarism

Reasons to Plagiarize
Lack of training
Poor online course design
Potential Solutions
One way to dissuade plagiarism is to take it head on by providing students with resources such as written documents with examples, video tutorials and engaging activities going through the right and wrong way to utilize references when completing assignments (Greenberger et al., 2016). Another way to deter students from plagiarizing is to offer communication means such as a discussion board, live chat session open to all students in the course, a recording of a live chat, and activities that promote learning appropriate ways to add in-text citations for direct quotes or paraphrased sentences (Insley, 2011). Additionally, another
solution along the lines of anticipation is to consider course design (McAllister & Watkins, 2012). Make assignment directions clear with
an example and grading rubric.
Technological Solutions
Defining Plagiarism
In general, plagiarism can be described as an act of unintentional borrowing from a source, intentionally using pieces or all of a source, or misconstruing instructions provided to complete assignments (Greenberger, Holbeck, Steele, and Dyer, 2016).
Students Rights
Brinkman (2013) discusses that a student has copyright over work that he or she generates. This sticky situation means that faculty must cover all bases by letting students know up -front that their work is required to be put through a plagiarism checker. A proactive approach could include having a written policy within your course syllabi and getting an institutional written policy and procedure if there is not one in place.
