Turnitin And The Debate Over Anti-Plagiarism Software

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.”

What is your take on how students can be educated to avoid plagiarism?
How academic dishonesty should be handled?

    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.
