While we all need a bit of help once in awhile, whether it be a nudge to get started, or step-by-step direction, ethics remains what it is. None of the tutorials I post are EVER to be used as an assignment to be turned in by the person purchasing the tutorial. In turn, I may purchase a tutorial to give me ideas, stiumulate my brain, or get that nudge I need sometimes to get started. However, at no time will I use an entire tutorial as my work and turn it in as such.
If we feel a tutorial might aid in our learning, ask questions of the tutor before you purchase the tutorial. Be specific. As well, the tutor should also be specific in his or her answers to the students questions.
We can all learn from one another, but do not commit plagiarism and do not disregard the information a tutor supplies to you regarding a tutorial. Ultimately, the student is responsible for how he or she uses these tutorials. Enjoy your learning experience; don't cheat yourself out of receiving the education you deserve!
