TechnoCheating - UMD and SMS

The Washington Post has an article today detailing the follow-up to a cell-phone powered cheating scheme at the University of Maryland that has landed 12 students in trouble with the school's Honor policy.

It appears that the students are using friends, cell phones and SMS to communicate answers from outside of the test hall (where the answer keys have been posted by the professors) to their cohorts at the desks inside.

Another possible option is that professors who are posting exam keys on the web are having those accessed directly by students via cellular web browsers.

Sounds like another good application (along with theaters) for cellular phone blockers.
