Why is plagiarism in learning damaging? Plagiarism hurts you and your learning path at Udacity, and hurts the Udacity community in the following ways: • You deny yourself the opportunity to learn and practice skills that may be needed in your future career. • You deny yourself the opportunity to receive honest feedback on how to improve your skills and performance. • You invite future employers and teachers to question your integrity and performance in general if you have not mastered essential skills. • You commit fraud on the reviewers who are evaluating your work. • You deprive another author due credit for his or her work and intellectual property. • You show disrespect for your Udacity peers who have done their own hard work on projects.
