The URKUND analysis now has the option to pinpoint where text is flanked by brackets or parentheses. The purpose of this is to make it easier for the reviewer to see where there are annotations and other references in the text.
Many of our users prefer to work with URKUND using the various learning platforms already available within their organisations. We continually develop integrations for platforms and are currently working to improve integrations with D2L and Canvas. Our integration with the latest version of Blackboard has taken a big step towards including Grade Center, while several exciting improvements to our Moodle plug-in are also in progress.
The fund was set up by a government decision in 1979 and is a collaboration between the Swedish Foreign Ministry and the business community. Its purpose is to promote business and trade between France and Sweden.
The fund awards scholarships to intensive management-level programmes in France and courses run by the Chambre de Commerce Suédoise en France (@CCSuedeFrance) and ESCP, Ecole Supérieure de Commerce de Paris (@ESCPeurope).
We held our URKUND PEPP-talks in August, but also took part in several conferences, including BETT London UK, NOT in Utrecht Holland; Framtidens läromedel in Malmö, Sweden; the international conference Plagiarism across Europe and beyond 2015 in Brno, Czech Republic; EUNIS in Dundee Scotland; ALT-C in Manchester, UK and visited universities in India and Ecuador. URKUND has also been at Sett Syd 2015 in Malmö, Sweden; at NGL2015 in Falun, held a conference at the Swedish Embassy in Paris in collaboration with Business Sweden and we also had a stand at EDUCA Online 2015 in Berlin.
We will move address in Q1 2016, to attractive new and larger premises in Alviks Strand, in west Stockholm, right on the shores of Lake Mälaren, and close to stops on the Stockholm Metro and the Tvärbanan tram line. We expect the movers to start work in February 2016.
“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.
