    Okay recently me and my entire class had a assignment due in for games development, in computer systems fund model part. Its to do with Binary and circuits, that are not my strong point but i still have knowledge about it all, me and him stayed late 2 days on a row to finish it off, next to each other working on parts (Not exact same parts) so no i we didnt both sit there and write the same thing. we just sat and worked and kept company. BUT! what i was wondering was there was a moment where i was not 100% sure with a part and asked my friend for some adivice wether or not what i was thining was correct and he in a way helped he sat and explained how a part of a circuit would run, just the way a tutor would. in a lecture he didnt type anything he just explained, but i was worried it may be the same way his may have looked but then i thought everyone else in the class would have done it the same way as later i found out what he explained was correct. so my question after all of that is. Could that be classed as plagiarism. ? (sorry for huge message)

    If he was just explaining something but then you did the work by yourself you should be fine. It's not plagiarism to share ideas together.
