Academic integrity manifests itself somewhat differently in online instructional contexts. In this episode, Roger Graves talks with Ellen Watson of the University of Alberta's Centre for Teaching and Learning about how instructors can organize their online courses to discourage cheating and maintain the academic integrity of online learning.

In this episode we consider specific ways to write more clearly and more concisely. Clarity and concision both affect the overall style in which you write, and while both clear writing and concise writing are good things there are times when some writers need to produce elaborate discourse and longer texts.
In this episode I define writing style in academic writing, and consider the three levels of style: low or plain, middle or forcible, and high or elaborated. Using these as a rough guide to readability, we use a style analysis tool to both examine our own writing styles and those of other writers you might seek to emulate.
In this episode we'll examine writing style: the low or plain style, the middle or forcible style, and the high or florid style. Using those definitions, we'll describe ways to analyze the style a document is written in as a way to develop the ability to write in several different styles.
