Abstract

The difference between knowledge sharing as enabled in a knowledge management (KM) environment, and academic honesty continuously needs clarification and reinforcement in academic institutions. Teaching includes getting students to realize that knowledge is an asset that can be ethically used for creativity and innovation, resulting in the enhancement of the corporate image and effectiveness of a university. Studies have confirmed that academic dishonesty is an ethical challenge facing many academic institutions of higher learning. In the Middle East, the use of English as a second language is often cited as a contributing factor to students' plagiarizing, but the problem extends to the use of Arabic language sources too. Conflicts in approach may arise because KM works well in an environment of sharing, and yet acknowledging academic productivity of others may not always happen spontaneously. This is a challenge faced in MOOCs and by institutions of higher learning the world over.
