Many of our users prefer to work with URKUND using the various learning platforms already available within their organisations. We continually develop integrations for these, 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.
“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.
