Contract cheating has the potential to be a particular problem for online courses. This presentation, from the CISIS 2014 research conference held at Birmingham City University, looks at how students on online courses can pay others to complete assessed work for them. It is based on an analysis of the use of the Transtutors agency site, where students can ask homework and assessment questions and have solutions written for them for a fee. The presentation concludes by making recommendations about what academics can do about cheating and plagiarism and how this form of academic misconduct can be detected.
