Why Urkund is for me

To be a teacher, IT-specialist, a professor or anyone working in the education sector comes with many tasks. One of them is to sort out the infrastructure needed today to prepare the students of tomorrow. That entails a system that simply works, is easy to implement and doesn’t feel like an added burden.

What makes Urkund

Urkund only sells its licences to professionals at an organisation. Hence, we do not sell to single users or students. We are proud of our integrity, the fact that we don’t sell to potential ghostwriters and we want to keep it that way.  We support all common file formats and then some such as Hangul. We also offer the possibility to get authenticated via an institutions existing Single-Sign-On system, e.g. Shibboleth.

Trusted by some of the world’s most renowned institutions.

What is Urkund?

Urkund is a text-matching software that is used to detect plagiarism. Sounds complicated? It isn’t! (Well, our developers will disagree). What our system does is to compare uploaded documents with sources from different areas and see if there are similarities. To be able to do so, we have truly complicated algorithms and technology behind it.
