Back in 2004, I think it was, I was teaching Introduction to Ethics. I strongly warned them against using Wikipedia as a source. I required digital copies of student essays. I used some service like TurnItIn (it might have been them, I forget) to determine whether the students' essays were copied.
So...I caught one student red-handed (1) copying from a website I started, (2) that I had warned them against using, (3) in an ethics class.
That's one reason I'm not too excited about teaching college anymore.
Well, here is the thing - was the site you started have the right information or the wrong information? It is always wonderful when a student plagiarizes from an incorrect source.
