I did the first few - excellent
Educators will need to scrutinize the use of these tools, too.
With the proliferation of mobile devices and instant access to the internet, cheating has become easier than ever. What can educators do to stop it?
Probably the better question to ask is why do people cheat?
Fighting plagiarism is serious business. From brainchild-snatching to wholly quotables, plagiarists have plenty of wily ways to pass others' work off as their own -- and all of them are threats to original thinking. Melissa Huseman D’Annunzio imagines what would happen if a Department of Plagiarism Investigation were on the case.
A good video and thought provoking questions are the basis of a great lesson for students.

In my experience, people usually don't consciously decide to plagiarize, but they may end up plagiarizing "by accident" because they run out of time, or they get confused about the assignment, or maybe they copy-and-paste, intending to go back and edit later but forgetting to do so. Every time that I have seen plagiarism in an assignment, the person swore that the plagiarism happened "by accident." That does not change the fact of the matter: plagiarism, even when it happens by accident, is still plagiarism, and the consequences are serious. It's like when you are caught speeding or running a red light: it doesn't matter if you did not know you were speeding or if you did not notice the red light - you are still going to get a ticket.
Sometimes as I decide what kind of papers to assign to my students, I can’t help but think about their potential to use essay mills.

Online manners, sometimes called netiquette.. all part of digital citizenship can be taught. It's not rocket science, it's manners!
Excellent guidelines to go by. The internet is such a reflection of what goes on in the human mind, from bright and genius ideas and behavior, to dark and stupid. I'd rather be on the bright side.
Manners do matter.

Laura Gibbs: Plagiarism means that students are not learning. If Coursera is committed to providing a good learning experience for students in the course, then it needs to intervene with a student who is plagiarizing, making sure the student understands what it means to do original work and why that is crucial to the learning experience. This, for me, is actually the most important reason that something has to be done about this - and far better, of course, if something is done proactively, rather than after a student has plagiarized. Now that Coursera knows plagiarism is a potential problem in a course with these types of writing assignments, some kind of plagiarism education needs to take place before the writing assignments begin. In our class, that plagiarism education needs to happen ASAP.
