Hey! This morning I got a notification that my proposal for the microlearning conference in Innsbruck has been accepted. I also got some very encouraging feedback from them – yay! yay! yay!

paper id 60: The Dark Side of the Force: The Issue of Microplagiarism in Microlearning
has been accepted.
The review comments are following, please consider them carefully when preparing the final version of your paper.

*Very well written paper and easy to read.
*Being an academic myself I have seen this problem a number of times
of the last years.
*Something missing in my opinion from the paper is how the moral
side of the problem. How does students react if you tell them not to
copy. Do they still do it but more carefully?

*Also, the semantic web is mentioned several time as the solution
but readers that are not that familiar with that name might benefit
from a discussion of how the semantic web would solve the problem!!
I strongly urge you to ad this!!!

*Some more minor things:
– Please connect the figures into the text. I.e. write in the text
“see figure 2” etc.
– It is always nice to see the heading “conclusions” at the end of
the paper. I didn’t realize I was reading the conclusions until I
reached the references 🙂
– What does footnote 18 mean???
Good work!

P.S. Here is a link to the older post that contains the microplagiarism abstract

  1. excellent news 😀

  2. Hooray!!! 🙂

  3. I just read your abstract, posted a while back, and it’s very interesting indeed. With new kinds of pedagogy emerging due to new kinds of learning spaces – micro, distance, etc. – it’s definitely necessary to also rethink plagiarism as it affects and inhabits these distinct spaces. The older academic crowd, which you point out rather well in the photo on the other entry, seems to think plagiarism is a rather monolithic term, activity, practice, and it’s definitely necessary for new work to be done. It seems, from the abstract, that your paper will do just that so it’s very encouraging, vital work.

  4. thanks a lot for the compliments – I am pretty excited about this, too:-)
