asking for help with any type of test is considered cheating even if it is take home or online
the point of the test is to test your own abilities and not our ability.
Also, Openstudy has an anti- cheating policy which is noted in the Terms and Conditions which you can find at the bottom of the screen.

Wow! That's great to know. I was going to post my connexus lesson 4b science exam up right now but now I know not to do that. Thanks for the heads up!
Openstudy should be used for tests too, unless the tester stated you should not have external help, and you agreed. Even if the tester has no way to be sure. It is not always explicit but should be made so.

There should be more guidelines with students about what would be considered online cheating. And teacher have the duty to be clear. Sometimes they are sloppy with that.
As a teacher in a cyber school, I am EXTREMELY clear on my stance of using any outside sources on tests. And in speaking with other educators in my particular field, we all feel the same way. There are NO excuses for using outside sources while taking a test. It shouldn't have to be explained. It should be understood. Especially when students in my school agree to the Honor Code as soon as they enroll which strictly prohibits using outside sources and/or posting test material to internet forums.
And in case I didn't make myself clear about my stance on outside sources (ie: openstudy.com), the stance is absolutely positively NO
I would expect all teachers to be against using these resources. The problem is that even the teachers that are not so emphatic are also convinced it is unacceptable and worst, that the students should implicitly know it is not acceptable.
But one thing is that certain small bends of the rule always creep amongst the students and by the time the teacher catch a student doing it, everyone is also doing it. The only place students should be evaluated on not using externals resources should be under surveillance, as in a classroom. Distance learning have to involve other tools, such as timed quizzes and real time chat to evaluate the student.
Using an Honor Code is very important, and creates the right framework. But using that as the only means of evaluating students is lacking. Any human being is not perfectly disciplined, and a distance learning student is tempted to use resources like openstudy or wikipedia in an extreme degree. Unless the teacher explains extensively or provides resources to explain how to diminish those temptations, it is inhuman to expect the student to adhere to a promise to a remote teacher. Most students don't keep the promise to their physically present teachers given the temptation of being unnatended.
If you take into account your own experiences or those of your closed ones with cheating you will understand how much more difficult it is when today the access to external resources is so efficient and easy.
So what's your solution when a teacher DOES explain extensively AND provides resources?
