One source in the story called online tutoring services a “‘gateway drug’” to cheating.“So it’s not just [about the] brand, there’s a very, very good long-term business reason to be a product that helps in learning rather than cheating.” “Chegg does not tolerate cheating.When users violate our Honor Code policies, whether they are within the Chegg Tutor experience, while using Chegg Study, or across any of our products and services, we remove those users from the platform.The company’s tutors are instructed by the company not to engage if they encounter such solicitations. But Chegg doesn’t generally take action against the person making the request.“You can come here and ask [someone to do your work for you], we can’t stop you from that,” said Deb.Snorkel looks at both context and sentence structure and applies those "rules" to generate labeled training data for building a machine learning model.When the model detects a student asking to cheat, it alerts someone who will make a final determination whether there was, indeed, a cheating request.The fee is 15/month I think and is well worth it if you need a solutions manual. They also (when I looked at it) didn't take Canadian customers after the purchase.If you're using Hibbeler or Beer Statics I'm sure the solutions manual is out there (perhaps a torrent). There was nothing wrong with Cramster when it was still around. It's a great tool for studying or learning material, but if you're using it to do all your homework you'll probably get caught because let's face it: there's one solution manual for a text book, and everyone will use the exact same answers.Also talk to your friends, you could share a subscription with friends.If you feel like you need it and it has problems worked out, it's up to you to determine the worth but I thought it was.
