Ensure your students are adequately prepared for assignments with our best-selling online course: Avoiding Plagiarism
A new version of Avoiding Plagiarism is now available for North America. Following the successful launch of its British English, French and German language versions, Epigeum is glad to be expanding the reach of this course, allowing it to be used more widely across universities and colleges worldwide.
Avoiding Plagiarism is a 60 minute introductory course, used by students across all disciplines and will support their studies, teaching them how to avoid plagiarism by correctly paraphrasing and using citations and references. This course can provide your institution with evidence that students have received training in how to avoid plagiarism (both intentional and unintentional).
What does the online course include?
- Interviews with students on their ideas of plagiarism
- Interactive scenarios showing problems that may arise during studies
- Practice activities to help students both identify plagiarism and cite and reference different sources
- MLA or APA style references, and US-specific case studies. The North American version includes new content on plagiarism and academic integrity across disciplines
- A ‘Plagiarism in the news’ feature which helps contextualize the content through links to recent articles on real-life cases of academic plagiarism
96% of users from other language versions of the course stated Avoiding Plagiarism was effective in improving their understanding of plagiarism, and 85% of students rated the quality of the course as ‘high’ or ‘very high’.
