    This is a continuation to the conversation with on #ethicalCS with Chris Wilkinson from Major League Hacking (MLH).

    ----excerpt from Ethical CS Pt. 1 With Evan Peck
    Through both scandal and surprise, ethical concerns have entered center stage. Graduates must not only learn the technical complexities of their fields, but also weigh the impact of their work on society. The #ethicalCS movement pushes students' boundaries personally and professionally. It's a different look than leading students to formulas and correct answers. In this episode, we learn more from educators who are bringing such critical reflections into the classroom.

    Instructors teaching college computer science are aware that homegrown solutions don't always scale to catch instances of plagiarism. Pairing tools like MOSS are helpful, but perhaps doesn't catch every instance of cheating. This podcast discusses how tools like MOSS are beneficial to instructors due to how they work, why students feel compelled to cheat, and the grey area of what constitutes actually cheating.

    As more and more students begin to embark on computer science degrees, instructors are forced to take on greater class sizes and teach a broader range of topics. In an effort to scale, these instructors are building homegrown solutions to automate some of their grading. Autograders, both homegrown and for purchase, have fallen short of expectations. This podcast discusses the pros and cons of autograders and the future (if there is one).
