Five ways to stop online cheating | On Teaching Online

Five ways to stop online cheating | On Teaching Online | Social Media: Changing Our World of Education | Scoop.it

I had the chance to talk with a class of college undergraduates (real, live people in an actual classroom) a few weeks ago and one of the topics that came up made me re-examine a common problem for online teachers– cheating.

 

Academic cheating is nothing new but the impact it has on online education seems easier, and more widespread, than in face-to-face classrooms. This is a gut feeling, and the research suggests cheating and plagiarism are widespread in every educational environment, at any age, across every culture.

 

(Those of us in direct, live contact with smiling students are fooling ourselves to think classroom cheating is less prevalent, or that we can somehow catch evil-doers more easily in person.) I’ve written about ways to prevent online cheating here at On Teaching Online before, here.

A new Google Docs

A new Google Docs | Social Media: Changing Our World of Education | Scoop.it

They say a house is only as good as its foundation, and we believe the same holds true for web applications like Google Docs.

 

With our old foundation, we could continue delivering most features you wanted quickly, but over time it became clear that some just weren’t possible. So we decided to rebuild the underlying infrastructure of Docs to give us greater flexibility, improved performance and a better platform for developing new features quickly.

 

Today, we’re pleased to announce preview versions of the new Google document and spreadsheet editors and a new standalone drawings editor, all built with an even greater focus on speed and collaboration. To get a taste of what’s new today, check out our video:

The A-Z Dictionary of Educational Twitter Hashtags - Edudemic

The A-Z Dictionary of Educational Twitter Hashtags - Edudemic | Social Media: Changing Our World of Education | Scoop.it

The A-Z Dictionary of Educational Twitter Hashtags:

 

First, What’s A Hashtag?

 

The # symbol, called a hashtag, is used to mark keyword or topic in a Tweet. Any Twitter user can categorize or follow topics with hashtags.Those hashtags (usually) mean something and are a great way to get a tweet to appear in search results or discussion monitoring.

 

For example, the popular #edchat hashtag is used by thousands of users every Tuesday. It makes it easy (sort of) for people to monitor what’s happening in the conversation rather than having to try and guess what topics you should search for. By having a conversation on Twitter using hashtags, you also make it easy for any other Twitter user to join in.
