This is a very detailed explanation of plagiarism. I like the outside resources that were used and the New York Times video is a great visual and audio representation of the subject matter.

Because the information covered is extensive and in depth, you might consider entering “check point” questions for the student to make sure they are not getting lost and that they understand each type of plagiarism before moving on. It gives them the opportunity to go back and review concepts before moving on to the next section. 

The case studies are great as well. One area that potentially you could add to this section is a highlighting tool of sorts. That way as the student is reading they can mark areas that look like the reason for the plagiarism or even as another visual reference point for them.



Technical Remarks:

I could not get the quiz to load.

This was a very informative lesson on Plagiarism. A lot of info, laid out nicely and had some fun, interactive items in it. I would have used at least 1 image on every slide, however to make it more visually appeling. I also think it would have been nice to add links to the Table Of contents titles if someone only wanted to go through certain parts of the lesson.  I loved the video by Drew Christie and think a lot of teens would also.  It's timely and relevant. It also does an excellent job on the history of Plagiarism.  I liked the cartoon on one of the pages. I had a problem opening up the YouTube video.  It opened up behind my presentation instead of in front of it, so I couldn't access it until the presentation was over. I liked the interactive case studies! Nice job with that. However, I think I might have added "back" buttons on all the pages if students wanted to go over some of the info again.  Finally, towads the end it says, "click to begin the plagiarism quiz" and when you click you get the message that it can't find it. Therefore, there's no real ending to this lesson.

Technical Remarks:

Hi Jennifer -

I really liked your Stand Alone Plagiarism survey with auto-reply responses.  It seems like a perfect flipped classroom assignment where students can complete the survey for homework and then as you mention, is "a means to provoke discussion about plagiarism and academic integrity," the next day during class.  This is definitely something that would be valuable on our campus.  I wonder if the original question can be restated in the auto-response?  Although the main idea of the question is embedded in the "answer," it was a little difficult to understand some of the responses without seeing the original question.

Great job!
