    Unhappy Re: What would you like to see on BOS 2008?

    Resources listed that one can actually access rather than constantly being asked to log in (despite being logged in already).

    I think I want the site to be 99.9% up and host it on a better server, it seems like its down quite a number of times during the year.

    We should have monthly competition of some sort. =P

    Hey, how about a face lift for this forum? It has been like this ever since it started?

    A sub forum for philosophy rather than just a thread.

    There are two issues with university notes and plagiarism and they are worthwhile distinguishing.

    Firstly, a uni student goes to a lecture, takes word-for-word notes and posts them to BOS. That is both plagiarism (it is not the student's own work) and a breach of the Copyright Act (the "word-for-word" aspect of the notes).

    Secondly, a student uses content from BOS in submitted work, without acknowledging the source. That's plagiarism.

    I wouldn't let fear of the second class of plagiarism stop you extending into aiding people at university. All instructional materials run this risk. In that way the media attacks on BOS are most unfair -- textbooks don't get criticised for encouraging plagiarism, despite being the source of most of it.

    Where I would be cautious is with the deeper depth of knowledge required for university. One of the reasons BOS is successful is that there are many people that can help -- from professionals in a field like me, to students that did the subject in previous years, to fellow struggling students. But there isn't the same number of people attached to BOS that know about "CPU scheduling techniques for non-uniform memory access", or many of the other arcana university teaches students.

    I also wonder if using BOS would be a good first tactic for uni students struggling with a particular topic. You are paying massively to be at uni. Take advantage of what you have purchased and attend the consulting session for your subject to get your understanding ironed out one-on-one with an expert. If there is no consulting session with staff then that would be interesting to hear about on BOS. "Ease of access to staff" is one of those things vital to the quality of your education which doesn't appear in any university course guide.
    posting up your lectures notes isn't a violation of copywrite (even if it is word-for-word). To be copywrited, your work needs to be tangable to be copywrited. Also I dont really understand the issue with plagorism; if students post up their past assignments or notes wont they allready be quoted and cited correctly?

    There should be subforum for the Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources faculties within the University of Sydney forum.

    As a student wishing to pursue a degree within that faculty, it is disappointing there's no support here on the BoS Forums.

    You are welcome to seek support by posting threads in the General section of the University of Sydney forum. The faculty subforums have been set up on the basis of demand. A Faculty of Agriculture section would be sparsely utilised. If however sufficent demand becomes evident down the track, i'll be happy to consider it.

    As disappointing as that is, thanks for the response. I'll make sure to use the General sub-forum in the future. Thanks!

    Nah, that's a bad idea.

    Then people will be making rep system as some kind of competition.

    this.
    maybe something like a rating out of 5 stars or something like that. oh and comments would be beneficial, it would save people time rummaging through resources looking for what they need
