19:10:17 courosa -> well it is not a primary source, so use appropriately
19:10:19 alicemercer -> I think that you should cite "background" sources
19:10:44 alicemercer -> Dave, folks still use encyclopedias when they shouldn't
19:10:49 Gary -> Wikipedia sometimes points you in the right direction if you are careful.
19:10:58 alicemercer -> Yep Gary
19:11:09 alicemercer -> Background info sources
19:11:13 Gary -> But don't depend on it.

19:15:39 alicemercer -> Oh, I commented on that. I couldn't believe that. DON"T TALK to each other? Please!
19:15:53 Gary -> Only ws considered cheating because it did not happen in the hallway.
19:15:54 courosa -> When will professors actually get it? It's 90% assignment design ... design assignments where cheating is impossible, but collaboration is a must.
