This is one of the downsides of living in a time when everyone has a phone.

The New York Post reports:

College accuses 83 students of using app to cheat

Ohio State University has accused 83 undergraduate students of cheating on classwork using a group messaging app.

The school says the students violated the code of conduct for “unauthorized collaboration on graded assignments.”

A university spokesman says the use of group messaging apps is permitted, but is subject to the same rules as any other communication.

The university’s Committee on Academic Misconduct investigated after a professor in the business school reported the allegations in April.
