Mobile Academic Integrity Project (eCampus Ontario)


The project objectives are to develop strategies for enhancing student academic integrity (AI) knowledge and understanding by employing open access mobile technology with an innovative pedagogical approach. It explores the best strategies, from a student user perspective, for accessing, delivering, assessing, and learning this information with mobile technology (m-learning). The project is funded by an eCampus Ontario Innovation and Research Grant.




Educational institutions often struggle to identify what is the best pedagogical approach to engaging students with academic integrity (AI) content. Developed as part of university-wide research study on academic integrity, Integrity Matters app aims to enhance student academic integrity knowledge and understanding using an innovative pedagogical approach. Dr. Alice Schmidt Hanbidge, project principal researcher and faculty in the School of Social Work and Tony Tin, project technical lead and Renison’s Librarian, accepted an international academic e-learning award from the International E-Learning Association(IELA). The AI research team developed Integrity Matters, the Integrity Matters App, to introduce the tenets of academic integrity to students for any time, anywhere learning in a meaningful way.

Integrity Matters tri-lingual (English, French, Chinese) mobile app can be readily used and adapted worldwide across post-secondary colleges and universities. Best strategies, from over 1,000 undergraduate student users, for learning this information with mobile technology (m-learning) were explored. Six lessons include diverse student life scenarios, animated videos, interactive exercises and games. Upon successful completion of the lessons and quiz, students are awarded an e-certificate and a digital badge.
