A clear and detailed approach to explaining the concepts of academic integrity and plagiariarism. Of particular use for busy professors may be the quiz and resulting completion certificate (including student score) that may be emailed to the professor or student.

Technical Remarks:

Viewers may find they need to enlarge their screen display, as some of the text can appear quite small.

As a one-stop, comprehensive resource about plagiarism, I love this material.  In my composition courses, we go over plagiarism in depth.  There are times, however, when I have such a brief touch with a student about plagiarism that a simple website recommendation is all I can offer.  I might meet someone in the university's computer lab or library.  The person is not in my class, but somehow plagiarism comes up in conversation.  I can recommend such a student to this excellent site.  It's attractive, engaging, and complete enough.
