The shift to remote learning brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic has presented a plethora of new challenges for preventing and detecting academic dishonesty. Although academic dishonesty, such as plagiarism and cheating, can occur in traditional in-person classes, just as in remote learning environments, the easy access to books, notes, and gadgets, has made such problematic behavior significantly more prevalent. Recognizing the numerous challenges to do with academic integrity in the digital age, this small-scale study attempts to highlight undergraduate students’ perspectives on online cheating, by conducting a web-based questionnaire. The questionnaire, sent to a small, random sample of undergraduate students from the Faculty of Education – Bitola, intends to investigate students’ reasons for cheating as well as their attitudes toward academic dishonesty during distance learning, in general. The study found that a significant portion of the participants have cheated themselves, on some occasions while almost all of them have witnessed someone else engage in academic dishonesty. The reasons for such misconduct vary, though the most prevalent ones seem to be the accessibility of online resources that make cheating or academic dishonesty easier and the belief that cheating is a common or accepted practice among peers.
