Colleges and universities across the country are increasing their offerings of online courses as students and the general public demand greater access to higher education. One problem inherent in online education is the greater opportunity to cheat on quizzes, papers, and discussions. When students are not in the classroom, but on the other end of the Internet, they cannot be directly observed or monitored. This creates problems for students and professors as they struggle with maintaining the integrity of the course and seeking to ensure that all students do their own work and learn the selected material.

This webinar will briefly review the reasons behind the problem of online cheating and then offer practical information and tips to enhance learning, encourage honesty, and prevent negative behaviors. Beginning with how to create a respectful learning environment, the webinar leader will present information that is being used across the country to benefit students and help instructors monitor progress and preserve the integrity of the course across different learning platforms.

  • Explore the reasons for cheating and how the online environment supports cheating
  • Learn about the must-have syllabus statements that help support honesty
  • Acquire relationship-building techniques that encourage open communication
  • Discover innovative assessment tools that discourage cheating
  • Identify creative tools to detect cheating if it occurs
  • 2-year institutions & 4-year institutions
  • Academic Affairs/Instruction
  • Services/Affairs
  • Faculty (full and part-time)
  • Online Learning
"Stopping students from cheating in online courses or the classroom begins with creating an atmosphere of respect that helps students see the value of the education they are receiving. But it doesn't stop there; it also involves the use of basic and creative tools to discourage and detect cheating before it happens."

Dr. Perry C. Francis is a member of the faculty at Eastern Michigan University in the Department of Leadership & Counseling where he serves as a professor of counseling and the coordinator of the counseling clinic for the College of Education Clinical Suite. Perry has been in higher education for 15 years teaching in the traditional classroom, through remote broadcast, hybrid courses, and totally online. He seeks to help the students take ownership of their learning as they traverse the lectures, texts, and assignments that support their acquisition of knowledge. He has also provided CEUs to professionals in mental health, student affairs, and faculty on a wide range of students including classroom management, working with aggressive and violent students, supporting student success, and integrating veterans back onto campus. He serves his own campus as a chair of one of the University Appeals Boards that hears student cases concerning cheating, plagiarism, and various infractions of the student conduct code.

As a professor, Perry works with non-traditional students on a daily basis, helping them to learn to balance their lives, careers, and education. I find their biggest concerns center around trying to do it all, be the perfect undergrad or graduate student, perfect employee in a tight economy, and perfect spouse and/or parent. This incredible stress takes its toll on their lives and relationships. Understanding how to support them and achieve balance makes for a better student and future alumni.

Outside of the campus setting, Perry is currently serving as the Chair of the Ethics Revision Task Force for the American Counseling Association as well as chairing the sub-committee on Scope of Practice issues for 20/20 Commission on the Future of Counseling. He has presented on ethics in supervision, ethical issues facing college counselors, and suicide prevention at conferences in the United States and Canada. He has also written numerous journal articles and book chapters including the chapter Professional Student Affairs Practitioners: History, Models, And Trends, in Joining the Counseling Profession: Developing Your Identity as a Professional Counselor and Counseling Issues of College Students and Religion & Spirituality in Counseling, in the Professional Counselors Desk Reference.

Dr. Francis earned his degree in counselor education at the University of Northern Colorado (UNC). Before completing his degree, Perry was a Lutheran parish pastor and a campus pastor. He also served as an interim staff psychologist at the UNC Counseling Center.
