Students allegedly get caught cheating on a new level.
WBNS reported Friday that Ohio State University has accused 83 undergraduate students of cheating on classwork using a group messaging app.
The school says by doing so the students violated the code of conduct for “unauthorized collaboration on graded assignments.”
A university spokesman says the use of group messaging apps is permitted but is subject to the same rules as any other communication. Like most universities, professors may limit the use of smartphones during exams and classwork.
Bad news for the students as they risk potential expulsion.
