URKUND, the world’s most precise anti-plagiarism solution, is available in Moodle, the world’s foremost open source LMS/VLE. The integration was developed and is maintained by Dan Marsden at Catalyst NZ, the originator of the Moodle plagiarism core.
The plugin is available for download at https://moodle.org/plugins/view.php?plugin=plagiarism_urkund and is very easily set up by any Moodle administrator.
“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.
