8:12 Kiwi arrives in Haiti the day before president's assassination 

New Zealander Rachel Scott-Leflaive knew what she was getting herself into when she signed on to undertake a United Nations mission in Haiti, but never in her wildest dreams did she imagine that within 24 hours of touching down in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, the country's president, Jovenel Moïse, would be assassinated at his home. Rachel is with us from Haiti to give an update on what's happening there.

Due to the pandemic, universities had to conduct exams remotely and online in entirely trust-based systems. Students began forming their own ways of working and systems for information exchange which evidently resulted in cheating scandals - including at the University of Auckland. The online learning revolution has raised a question; Is it cheating, or using initiative? University Teaching Consultant Linda Rowan explores the issue and whether we need to adapt to our new reality and change our outdated definition of cheating.
