In addition to institutional policies and procedures, many post-secondary institutions offer various supports and resources to support students’ knowledge and enactment of academic integrity. In this study, we drew upon the literature and current practice to develop and implement an online academic integrity tutorial. This tutorial was customized to support undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in online and blended programs in a faculty of education at a Canadian University. We share the preliminary findings in this article and consider recommendations for future research and supporting students to learn about academic integrity generally.
