Unplag is to help Social Council of Integrity of Ukraine check works of all the current justices as well as candidates for judicial elections for plagiarism. So far, Social Council of Integrity of Ukraine has already signed a partnership contract with Unplag. The members of the Council will assess all the submissions with Unplag to ensure academic integrity principles haven’t been violated.
The candidates to the Supreme Court are current judges, Doctors of Philosophy and Doctors of Science. Social Council of Integrity of Ukraine will check the research papers of the applicants for plagiarism to make certain that scientific degrees they obtained are well-deserved.
For you to better understand what Social Council of Integrity of Ukraine is all about, here is a brief outline of its key functions. Social Council of Integrity of Ukraine is a special commission that identifies the compliance of a judge with criteria of professional ethics and academic integrity. It proceeds with a judge’s assessment to satisfy the needs of the High Qualification Commission of Judges of Ukraine.
It was my first time at OEB where I joined my team and spent three crazy days full of tech inspiration and pep talks to smart people. You can’t even imagine what a striking feeling I had introducing new AI/machine learning technology EMMA (authorship definition). So now I would like to say a few words about the conf, what we liked, as well as what could be improved.
Last week Unplag officially started partnering up with the King Juan Carlos University located in Madrid, Spain.
The Spanish university has already obtained an annual license to use the Unplag plagiarism checker and take academic cheating under control. 37,939 students of this university can now instantly scan their papers for originality and get accurate search results.
What do you value the most in LMS apps when creating another assignment for students or grading their papers? One of the choice criteria is sure to be its “labor-saving” feature. This is what our team calls “striving for a positive user-experience at all costs.” And this is the main reason why a new Unplag update has been released. It allows saving settings for all assignments in a course with just one click.
This way you avoid adjusting settings for each assignment individually. Isn’t it labor-saving?
As an educator, you have definitely come across recycled student papers not once. To bring self-plagiarism accusations against the cheaters may take much time, since you need to ensure that your proof is really irrefutable. Not all plagiarism checkers available for LMS use can tackle the issue. Though students can also become victims of an unjust plagiarism checker verdict when their final submissions are falsely considered as re-used ones just because students were allowed to pre-check their papers before sending them for grading.
Good news for all educators using Blackboard Learn™. The Unplag plagiarism checker has recently become available for use within Blackboard Learn courses. So, if you are a fan of integrated tools within Blackboard Learn, it’s high time to register an account at unplag.com and see it in action. It can be done either on one’s own or under the supervision of the Unplag team.
Once the registration is completed, you’ll get access to the institution account at unplag.com. To activate the LTI app in Blackboard Learn, your LMS administrator should obtain the API key and secret (which can be found in the API Settings section of your Unplag account) and make initial setup. That’s all you need to get started.
