Plagiarism prevention for secondary education

Equip your pupils with the right knowledge today to kick-start their academic career of tomorrow. Start by teaching them about plagiarism and providing them with proper academic writing skills - supported by Urkund.

What is plagiarism prevention?

By plagiarism prevention, we envision the use of Urkund as a pedagogical tool. More pupils than ever before are enrolling in higher education which means that competition will only get bigger. We want to help you to provide your pupils with the best possible tools for an academic career by laying the groundworks of academic rules. So use Urkund to start a conversation about plagiarism, original thinking, and create awareness around the subject of academic integrity. 

Why a plagiarism checker?

Having a plagiarism prevention system established at your school and one that’s proven to be accurate and efficient, means you take the academic career of your pupils seriously. Right from the start. Make sure to take a stand against content theft and value work based on merits instead. 

Use it within your current learning management system!

Whatever learning management system (or VLE) your school uses, e.g. Microsoft Teams for Education or Google Classroom, we have the integration for it. Our powerful web API also allows for bespoke integrations, making Urkund flexible and non-intrusive to your current workflow.

Use a tool that actually saves time for teachers!​

We all know that teachers are swamped. So having an accurate and efficient text-matching software that saves time can be a true lifesaver. Urkund shows relevant sources by eliminating so-called false positives and does the work of combing through millions of sources for you. Some things in life should be automated and this is one of them. 

Spend your time on more important things instead. 

Urkund makes life easier for thousands of secondary schools.
