Cheating is when a student does not do his or her own work. Plagiarism is when a someone presents another person’s writings as his or her own. And self-plagiarism is when a student turns in the same assignment for two or more courses without permission to do so. Again, sharing information or working with another student when it is not allowed, is called “unpermitted collaboration.” And, a student getting help from another person, when he or she should not, is also academic dishonesty.Misrepresentation: falsely representing oneself, efforts, or abilities;

Benefits of Web-based
There are seven important functionalities
in web-based education:
(1) real time announcements,
(2) posting of text, html, spreadsheets, videos,
PowerPoint, audio files,
(3) real time grade book,
(4) external links,
(5) discussion board and chat rooms,
(6) automated quizzes,
(7) emails to individuals and list serves.

Necessity of Webbased curriculum
A student’s success in today’s world requires not
only basic academic skills but also social and
collaboration skills, higher order and critical thinking
skills, problem solving skills, fluency in
communicating in many modes and media,
technical skills and the skill to initiate action
(Fulton & Honey, 2002).
Positive aspects of Elearning
“anywhere, any time, any
place” (Honey, 2001)
• Within instructor decided limits, the student
now picks the place and time to learn.
• The student can look at the lecture not once
but see it as many times as the student
• Web-based education permits the professor to
introduce the student to a much richer variety
of text, external links, audios, and videos to
the virtual classroom.
The academy has not prepared professors to
teach online classes (Speck, 2000: 75).
Web-based education is biased against liberal
learning that requires a give and take
communication between and among students
and the teacher (Carsten and Worsfold, 2000:
The online approach eliminates the value of
personal relationships in the name of efficiency
(Carsten and Worsfold, 2000: 84).
The online approach merely eliminates a
student’s literacy because of the over reliance
on visual culture (videos, audios, automated
quizzes, and so on).
In summary, teachers can abuse both
web-based education and traditional
education but both can also provide
the necessary quality rigorous
Web-based education is a reality but it is also
a changing reality…
