Abstract

Advances in technology in the late 20th century led to widespread changes in the way information is consumed and used. The advent of a user-friendly World Wide Web has created a global information and communications resource that is being used extensively in education, corporate organisations and the home. The culture of information usage has shifted as a direct result of these developments. Educational institutions are now seeing a generation of students for whom instantaneous telecommunications and access to information have always been a part of their everyday lives. This paper explores the changing culture of information use and the emergence of electronic plagiarism, and suggests strategies for dealing with plagiarism in education.
