For the modern student, plagiarism isn't all it used to be. In fact, many don't see it as an issue in the least. According to the New York Times, technology has fostered a laissez-faire attitude towards the practice. Many students plagiarize -- and many don't think they're doing anything wrong.

Working together is not permitted except in assignments specifically labelled by the instructor as group assignments. Cutting-and-pasting from someone else is not solving a problem. Do your own thinking and write your own answers. No cutting-and-pasting.
Even where using another person's material is permitted (from other students, books, the Internet, or even from the blackboard or posted course notes), copying material from other sources and submitting it without proper credit to the author is an academic offence called plagiarism. You must credit the source of material that you did not write yourself, no matter from where it comes!
Students working together without authorization or submitting work containing plagiarized material in the programme will be charged with academic fraud under Algonquin Academic Regulations. Read the plagiarism document for details.

This Fall 2011 semester is the final offering of CST8281. The course has been deleted and its content moved into other courses. If you fail the course or must withdraw this term, you cannot re-take the course later.
From: Patricia Murphy Subject: RE: what happens to CST8281 failures Date: Thu, 10 Nov 2011 11:56:08 -0500 Students who fail CST8281 will have to take a substitute course next semester. There will be no guarantees of space in the replacement course and they will require a laptop as they will be dropping into a laptop mandatory program of study.
