In this module learners will be introduced to issues related to academic integrity, which has become a matter of increasing concern in the digital age. Use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) has been widely embraced, and much information and many resources are readily accessible through the internet. However, these available resources may be licensed or copyrighted in a variety of ways, and adhering to this may cause challenges in ensuring academic integrity in higher education. Although the promotion and use of licensed Open Educational Resources (OER) goes some way towards mitigating this challenge, attention needs to be paid to the user’s behaviour when dealing with any resource, data, or information, whatever its associated licensing.
