When considering blended learning and the implementation of online courseware in a classroom, many teachers worry that internet cheating will increase. However, studies show that students are about equally likely to plagiarize in traditional courses as they are using online courseware.
Nevertheless, whether you’re a traditional teacher or one using online courseware in your classroom, there are ways to check for plagiarizing, feeble as they may be. Besides Google searching for keywords or phrases from your students’ work, there are websites available for educational use like plagiarismchecker.com, which provides free plagiarism detection.
Although the best prevention tool is education on correct citation, when students are well-informed and still cheat, it’s the educator’s duty to try and call them out on it.
