Tips For Handling Technology Enhanced Cheating

Using the internet for teaching and learning often brings up the question of cheating.   A common concern voiced by faculty is "How do I know that my students are doing the work?" While this question frequently arises in completely online courses, the existence of a variety of " cheat sites " (sites where students can download term papers etc.) on the internet may cause concern in traditional and web enhanced courses as well.  The information that follows may be useful to readers interested in deterring "technology enhanced academic dishonesty".
