So wait this is for SWAPPING answers? How does that work? People just giving others in their classes answers? Also what is "Code Academy?" I know about MIT OCW, not too sure about the rest...

from reading some of the Q's I do agree that Ia m tired of answering questions with no thanks, or any care besides the answer. OS has been there for me when I needed it, and I want to give back to it. I have learned so much here and passed courses like Calc 2 because of the help I received from @amistre64 and others.

@KonradZuse Code academy is just like MIT OCW but there are codes there and you can learn Coding there for free :)

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Ic I think I may have heard of it then, I do see people posting in sequence about classes, but I thought that was also MIt, just them actually giving out course credit... I would assume Code Academy does the same or Similar?

Must be just MIT OCW. I believe Farmdawg made a post awhile ago kind of like this about it, because people were giving answers to the hw's, which 1. Others wanted to attempt it, 2. Course credit was given. He said not to give answers until the week or time frame was up..

and since the chatbox cut off my Preetha paste: From @Preetha Ram: I noticed a lot of troubling activity around Connections Academy in particular. According to their rep, posting exam and test questions violates their copyright. In addition, all of these postings he says, are a violation of Connections Education’s Honor Code." All of our students sign the Honor Code, which states that they will · never give or receive unauthorized assistance on assessments. I understand that all assessments are “closedbook” and that my Learning Coach shall not provide assistance in determining answers on assessments · never post exam or quiz answers on the Internet or in other public places, nor use answers from posted exams or quizzes." Any suggestions on how we can deal with this?

But I don't understand how your supposed to answer direct questions such as " who was the first president of the United States ?" How do you explain that without giving the answer. I know you can say just google it, but you can do that with any question asked on this site, because every question asked can be found here on the internet. People just don't want to look.
