eThink Education and Urkund team up to provide a fully-automated originality-checking software for Moodle users
eThink Education, world-class provider of the open-source Learning Management System (LMS) Moodle, is excited to announce a new partnership with Urkund, a leader in originality-checking software. With one of the smoothest integrations available, eThink clients can now get easy access to an anti-plagiarism software with test-winning accuracy directly in Moodle.
Created and developed in Sweden, Urkund builds on the tradition of innovation in order to constantly stay ahead of plagiarism. Under the hood, machine learning algorithms have been fine-tuned for over 20 years to deliver industry-leading accuracy while maintaining an easy-to-use interface for the educator. Urkund is also the only anti-plagiarism software that doesn’t provide students with the access that will allow them to ‘prime’ and thus bypass a test.
Offering unparalleled customer service, eThink Education enables their clients to get the most value out of the Moodle LMS as possible. Urkund, also cloud based, serves customers on all continents and has one of the industry’s fastest-generated similarity reports no matter where you are or what language you use. With a shared belief in the positive and transformative powers of technology for the learning process, this partnership will help Moodle LMS users all over the globe to promote academic integrity and prevent plagiarism.
“The fact that eThink Education has technology at its heart, believes in how it can be a positive and transformative power for the learning process, and consistently puts the client front and center makes me excited as to how we jointly can help elevate the quality of education worldwide,” said Andreas Ohlson, CEO of Urkund.
“Urkund’s powerful anti-plagiarism software and seamless integrations to the Moodle LMS make their solution an easy choice for educators who are looking to encourage original ideas amongst their learners,” said Brian Carlson, CEO & Co-Founder of eThink Education. “We look forward to offering this reliable and easy-to-use detection and prevention tool to our clients to help them ensure learner integrity.”
