Distance Education Forum: Plagiarism Prevention using Turnitin.com
The Office of Instructional Consulting continues its series of forums on distance education and online learning with a session on plagiarism prevention and turnitin.com. Turnitin.com is a web-based plagiarism detection service that IU Bloomington subscribes to. It is used at K-12 and higher education institutes in over 100 countries. To date, the system has processed over 50 million papers. By submitting papers through turnitin.com, the tool can help serve as a deterrent to prevent plagiarism, but it can also serve as an educational tool for students to learn citation methods, paraphrasing techniques, and how to cite works properly.
This session focuses on the important aspects of plagiarism prevention and provides an introduction to turnitin.com. Madeleine Gonin,Instructional Technologies Consultant at the Teaching & Learning Technologies Centers will be present to demonstrate the uses and best practices of turnitin.com. Pam Freeman, Associate Dean of Students and Director of the Office of Student Ethics and Anti-Harassment Programs will also be joining us to discuss academic misconduct reporting, and the code of student rights, responsibilities, and conduct. Both presenters will be available to answer questions regarding plagiarism prevention.
