Academic integrity: Ryerson's site & cartoons

I'm at Ryerson Uiversity (Toronto, Canada) today so I thought I'd highlight Ryerson't Academic integrity website. It features a set of cartoon videos with student scenarios. For example, in the first one, Alison is up late doing her psychology essay and she gets tempted to plagiarise a textbook and a fellow-student's essay. The associated quizzes are not accessible to outsiders, but the videos are. There are also some posters using the same characters (like these ones, photographed on the wall in Ryserson's library). I liked the Janis Joplin quote ("Don't compromise yourself. You're all you've got").
