Cheating by students is being investigated in a university course dedicated to understanding the hidden world of academic deception. The course, being run online, is for academics who usually have the task of preventing cheating. It includes a “cheating confessional” to admit to forms of cheating. Course leader Bernard Bull, from Concordia University Wisconsin, says there is more cheating going on than universities likely to admit. “It’s fair to say that more than half of students have cheated, even if only in some quite small way,” said Dr Bull. The rapid rise of online university courses has raised questions about how to prevent students from cheating when they are studying and taking tests from home.
