Urkund and Turnitin

Turnitin is a program where students' papers are compared against the content of three source areas - the Internet, published material and Turnitin's student paper archive build from previously submitted documents - and the result of the analysis with detailed matching information is forwarded to the teacher. The program doesn't detect plagiarism but reports on matching texts.

Urkund offers an automated system designed to deal with the problem of plagiarism. With a small effort from the user, plagiarism can be prevented from three main source areas: The Internet, Published Material and Student Material.
