Cheating as an Epidemic

Cheating has become a lot more wide spread as the new generation becomes more and more technology based. Why? Because answers to problems are more widely available than they ever have been before. Some professors have become aware of this and have taken a proactive approach in making questions require a thought process over just basic one word answers. Others have began to take to the changes in society and shift gears from needing to know the answers to seeing how well a person has the ability to find the correct answer. And that's not necessarily wrong. It's not so important that we know all the details of complex subjects, but just that we have the basic understanding and the ability to solve the problem. The availability in this day and age can only increase.
