excellent report by NPR on the advantages but also perils of computerizing/automation of a complex process, which requires prolonged education and discussions, rather then “yielding with a hammer.”

Hello. We currently use Turnitin at our college. We were told that the list price for Turnitin will be increasing from $2.40 per student to$4.00 per student for all MnSCU schools as of January 1st. We are looking at other alternatives. Is anyone using other plagiarism tools besides Turnitin? Thanks.
