About the Class

Should bloggers worry about plagiarism? Apparently, knowing how to cite and give credit is very important even online. Lack of knowledge on how to cite and give credit to others constitutes plagiarism. Plagiarism is considered cheating. But is it a crime?

The online environment is confusing many students and instructions as to what and how to cite in order to avoid plagiarism. You may find the video tutorials on plagiarism from Rutgers University of interest. Generally, people who plagiarize do not realize they have done so. In order to avoid unpleasant situations, it is a good idea to check and find out what is considered plagiarism.
