The migration of education from face-to-face to online is a huge step in the modernization of the Philippine educational system. Technology has made learning in any particular topic of study both simple and complex. However, although being modernized, it has also resulted in more severe instances of academic dishonesty practices, fraud, and plagiarism because technology now makes a wide variety of information available online and has made it easier for students to obtain. In this study, the researcher looked into several types of plagiarism and cheating among college students taking courses online. An intrinsic case study design was used in this qualitative investigation. Purposive sampling was employed in participants’ selection based on the set criteria ensuring that individuals were chosen in accordance with ethical norms. The data was obtained using a Focused Group Discussion (FGD), and it was then analyzed and interpreted using thematic analysis. According to the data, it appears that students who engage in cases of academic dishonesty and cheating employ a range of strategies to pass online examinations and fulfill other academic responsibilities. When online examinations are held, participants make the most of web browsing and conducting audio and video conferences. Meanwhile, the main reasons for engaging in academic dishonesty practices are the pressure experienced in the current system, lack of academic support, lack of self-confidence and motivation, inadequate discussion, and the desire to pass the subject even if they have not learned completely. Therefore, it is good to pay attention to the development of teaching methods and the use of authentic metrics to better develop the skills appropriate to the course under study.
