International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on e-Learning (Prague, Czech Republic, Jul 23-26, 2013)
The use of information and communication technology has grown at an unprecedented rate and provides a revolutionary way of learning because specific information is easy to find on the Internet. One of the technology approaches in learning is e-learning or electronic learning. Whereas in the U.S., e-learning has become very popular in the recent years as, in Slovakia e-learning is far from being widely used as most of the universities in Slovakia offer only in-class courses and use information technologies only to support those. One of the disadvantages of e-learning is that it provides more possibilities for the academic fraud (Nagi, 2006). The purpose of this article is to point at issues of ethical misconduct in higher education and to analyze the current threats of ethical misconduct of e-learning on an example of Slovakia. As part of our analysis, the answers to questions such as whether the online students committed more academic fraud compared to the daily students will be answered and conclusions will be drawn.
