URKUND were very happy to sponsor the Blackboard User Conference at Durham University for the third year running. 2018’s conferences started off well, with a good turnout to our presentation of the new Blackboard Building Block and a lot of interest in putting it through its paces.
We would like, once again, to express our gratitude to Durham University for doing such an excellent job of hosting the conference. We look forward to being there again in 2019!
URKUND attended Online Educa in Berlin on 6th-8th December. The stand was kept busy; lots of users from Denmark and Norway came by and, as many of them are in the process of changing LMS/VLEs, they were interested to see how URKUND works when integrated into another system. URKUND had visitors from all over the world during the conference. OEB was also a great opportunity to say hello to representatives from other systems to discuss existing or proposed integrations.
See you next year!
For the fourth year in a row, URKUND had a stand at SURF’s Onderwijsdagen in Rotterdam’s World Trade Center 7-8 November 2017. We were kept busy by the delegates who were impressed by the quality of our integrations, especially the ones with Canvas and Brightspace/D2L. It was great to see so many familiar faces there and, of course, to have the honour of being next to our friends Xebic again. Thank you to everyone – clients, prospects, partners and the organisers – for making the two days so enjoyable.
URKUND were happy to be a Gold Sponsor at Next Generation Learning 2017, held at Högskolan Dalarna in mid-October.
Thank you to everyone who came by to say hello and to see us in action.
“We’ve definitely noticed an increasing incidence of plagiarism since URKUND was introduced, and previously there was of course a high level of undetected incidence. It was far too time consuming for the teaching staff to carry out their own plagiarism checks. The automation has led to a bigger haul of perpetrators,” says Joshua Kragh Bruhn, Information specialist at CBS.
“The preventive objective of plagiarism detection is highly significant. When the students become aware of URKUND they are less inclined to seek shortcuts. Trying to cheat the system is ultimately more resource intensive than doing a good job from the start,” says Arshad Hussanee, Learn Online Manager på University of Canberra.
