to understand that academic dishonesty including plagiarism and cheating has serious consequences

If you’re struggling with keyboard shortcuts, you may not know about this….
When you hover your mouse cursor over most icons in Microsoft Office programs, a pop-up appears, explaining the tool and displaying the shortcut. So instead of clicking an icon on a toolbar, use the shortcut as often as you can – just hovering over an icon from time to time for a reminder of a shortcut.
