As more and more individuals seek ABA education via online programs, the technology options to teach are increasing. Various tools are being used to provide quality instruction to students and engage them. However, the downside of the vastness of world wide web is that students sometimes seek unwanted means to submit work. Academic dishonesty has been a notable challenge for online educators. While we have many tools to dodge plagiarism, continuous efforts are still needed as students find newer ways to sabotage academic integrity. This panel includes three seasoned instructors teaching ABA online who will share their expertise on understanding, preventing, detecting, addressing, and deterring academic dishonesty. The aim of the panel discussion is also to invite the audience to provide input with their own experiences for bettering the overall integrity of online education.
