Plagiarism will not be tolerated on the Udacity platform. We believe that plagiarism reduces a student’s chances of success, as a student who plagiarizes often fails to gain the deep understanding that comes through grappling with challenging concepts. Without the understanding that comes with independently completing projects, students may be less confident in interviews and may struggle to put concepts into practice in a job setting. Plagiarism also impairs the integrity of Udacity’s learning environment and harms the value of our Nanodegree programs for our students.
This section describes what Udacity considers to be plagiarism in the context of our products and learning environment. Nanodegree programs are intended to teach students key concepts that foster successful outcomes in a field of study and in career paths thereafter.
