Assessment A, Part 1: MBC News Interview |
What are the main ethical issues on college campuses today? |
Plagiarism, cheating and copyright infringement. |
Do you think the Internet has made students less ethical? |
The Internet doesn't make people unethical; it only enables unethical people to do what they were always going to do - cheat, plagiarize, infringe on copyrights - easier and faster. |
What can colleges do today to help encourage academic integrity and deter unethical behavior? |
By establishing a code of ethics that clearly defines what is acceptable behavior and taking disciplinary action against those that break the code. |
Where is blogging going in the future? |
Blogging is going to be the standard format for news delivery, with traditional news outlets scrapping their multi-page articles for short, blog-style stories presented in chronological order. |
Why should we pay any attention to what you say in your blog? |
You don't have to have an advanced degree to be an expert in something, have an opinion or facilitate a discussion. And most bloggers don't claim to be anything more than regular people sharing ideas. |
How do you see micro-blogging sites like Twitter and Tumblr affecting news delivery? |
Micro-blogging allows real people on the scene to report real-time events to the whole world. It adds first-person depth to the news and allows us to see into news stories that journalists wouldn't have access to. |
Do you think bloggers or micro-bloggers should also abide by a code of ethics? |
Yes. Bloggers have a responsibility to be good Internet citizens and not copy others' text, or post copyrighted photos and music. I'm sure a code should go beyond these issues, but I'm not sure what it would look like yet. |
