On Integrity online:

We verify the student online by the global ID and submitting assignments on Blackboard. A rare student might give his global ID to someone else, but I have not seen that yet.  Doing that opens the student up to other problems and the IP addresses of logins can be checked.  Students often don't understand why they can't use a yahoo or other account or send me emailed assignments. I try to verify as much as possible by requiring uploads to Blackboard. It also saves me from virus attacks since the system does some screening.
