Introductory Plagarism Detection

Blackboard has two plagiarism detection options for assignments: SafeAssign and Turnitin. These solutions allow for student papers to be uploaded and then compared to previously submitted student papers.

It's best to start implementing a solution like this at the beginning of the semester and to include information in your syllabus.

See you in class to learn more about the integrated plagiarism detection options in Blackboard.
