Incorporating Academic Integrity Tools
The Office of Academic Integrity Programs has made great strides in addressing the challenges of using technology to educate students on the standards of academic integrity in the online educational environment such as online courses or course management sites like Desire 2 Learn. Key concepts we will cover include how to use technology to address expectations and standards of academic integrity at the beginning of the course, how to reinforce these concepts throughout the semester, as well as how to effectively use Turnitin.com on D2L assignments. We will explore our recent technological developments by reviewing a timeline of the creation of our office, trends of technology and academic misconduct, and the growth we have made specifically in this area.

One Day. One Community. One Difference. The First Annual One U Cup.

The first annual One U Cup was held November 14th & 15th, 2014 and included almost 40 OU students plus numerous faculty and staff mentors. This event, new this year at OU, aims to bring value to OU students, faculty and staff, and the greater Oklahoma community through the utilization and creation of innovative technology. Each year, a different college will call the challenge and name the technology to be used in that challenge. In this year's challenge, teams collaborated with Microsoft Engineers to design a working prototype of an app that allows OU students to more easily connect. This session will include a presentation from the organizers of the event on key takeaways and lessons learned as well as the presentations of the 3 student group finalists in the event.
