Rattle Spammers and Advertising Agencies
Unethical sites post their advertisements through social media platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest in addition to notice boards, flyers, classifieds, and campus email lists. Most often these parties impersonate as coaching institutes and send mails to the inventories, and pupils obliviously click on them and end up buying the papers. IT departments need to be watchful in guarding students against ads by getting hold of messages with parodied addresses and jamming admission to the identified cheating websites.
Put Together a Plan to Handle the Proof
It is important for the IT department to record the cases of educational misconduct in the form of the paper trail (documents providing evidence of someone's actions). Many institutions are making use of legal software to manage the issue of misbehavior, and accordingly, there will be a high burden put on the shoulders of the IT to increase their preparedness.
Caution and Alert Students
This method is easy to follow where educators warn students of a particular website violating the institution's policy and ask not to access the same in addition to alarming them of stringent action if they do so.
