Personally I do believe “cheating” to be unethical. While I do understand that many times the term cheating can be subjective, I do not believe that “cheating” is defined by one statement and all that can be categorized by cheating is just filed under one word. The goal of this term is to make students/professionals/people make ethical decisions. When looking at the contract cheating article, yes that is technically not cheating as “your” work is not, for example plagiarized, although the goal of labeling this cheating is to enforce the student to do their own work, to actually learn the material. While ethically this may not be incorrect, as a student you should morally want to do your own work and again learn the material.
