Facebook ‘cheater’ won’t be expelled

To tell you the truth, I don’t see how the Facebook group is different in principle from a study group.

A tool like Facebook does make it easier to to cheat, and the temptation probably goes up, too.

But, the students could get together secretly in person, and the only way to catch them would be to screen the results of their work (the old fashioned way, in other words).

I think the profs should devise assignments to make it hard for them to cheat, but easy to study together.

Maybe after we bomb or melt our way back to the stone ages, our memory skills can improve. Sweet.
