Abstract

Academic plagiarism is becoming an increasingly serious issue in higher education, especially in online education. In response to this issue, a lot of institutions are adopting web technology to prevent students from plagiarism. The most popular tool is Turnitin. Most schools are using it as a catching tool instead of teaching tool. This session will discuss this issue based on the research data collected from the survey results at the University of Houston. The discussion will also focus on how to reduce academic cheating by encouraging students to be creative in the learning process, and by increasing their awareness of being a responsible individual to the society.
