Concerned about plagiarism in your courses? Try Turnitin, an anti-plagiarism web-based tool which is available to faculty and students through Blackboard. This session will give you hands-on experience in submitting papers as an instructor to determine percentages of possible plagiarism. The tool can also be used by students to check their own paper before submitting. GradeMark gives instructors the ability to provide feedback to students by enabling editorial highlights, custom comments, and QuickMark editing marks directly on the student papers. The grades will automatically feed to the Grade Center.
