Abstract

Many higher educational institutions have become heavily dependent on computers and information systems for educational purposes. That exposes them to some ethical issues such as unauthorised access and use of computer systems, software piracy and information privacy. Information and communication technology is drastically changing our daily life. It introduces an avenue for debates and requires resolution on issues regarding the information society, yet we are critically short of ethical and intellectual resources with which to comprehend and confront these changes. The pace of changes often disrupts the operable norms and values. Thus, ethical issues are increasingly known to be an important aspect of information systems.
