Moodle users who are interested in ensuring the originality of texts have received an easy new tool to enhance content quality. A partnership between eThink Education, a Certified Moodle and Totara Provider, and Plagiat.pl Ltd, an international complex antiplagiarism system, provides clients and contractors with easier access to each company’s services.
Plagiat.pl provides an online antiplagiarism system and other essential tools to protect intellectual property for academic institutions, high schools, publishing houses, website owners, and individual clients. Since 2002, Plagiat.pl’s international brand, StrikePlagiarism.com, has been helping educators and students to prevent plagiarism in more than 300 universities across 11 countries and 3 continents.
“The integration of our system with Moodle and a partnership with eThink Education are the next steps in facilitating and popularizing the use of antiplagiarism software. The verification of the originality of texts promotes the independence of creative work. One of our goals is to make this process easier and less formal,” said Ali Tahmazov, Executive Director for International Market in Plagiat.pl. “We are approaching the remarkable milestone of 6 million documents checked by our system for the occurrence of plagiarism. This partnership with one of the biggest global suppliers of eLearning software will allow us to share our antiplagiarism software with Moodle users across the globe to accelerate this movement,” Tahmazov continued.
Through this partnership and integration, users of the open-source Moodle platform – as well as eThink clients – have access to the same functions and capabilities as users logged directly into the Plagiat.pl’s system, including:
- Checking documents on a regular basis, within a maximum of 24 hours;
- Ability to verify files in various extensions (including .doc, .ppt and .pdf);
- Check against online resources and shared documents databases;
- Receiving a Similarity report that clearly shows the borrowed fragments and reveals the place of borrowing.
