These videos are interesting and interactive-- at least more so than most plagiarism tutorials. They are also a bit lengthy. I found myself zoning out after about five minutes.

I spent 20 minutes reviewing this material and found it to be a wonderful resource. There were narrated situations in which college students(mixed ages) may find themselves wondering whether to cite or not. The quiz was informative since it revealed the correct answer with details. The learning objective was met and concepts were presented clearly. This would be a great resource as a jumping off point on the topic of plagiarism.
Software was easy to use whether you chose text or narrated. There were large pictures. The site was colorful and would keep the attentiion of students while driving home major comcepts. First time users would have little difficulty with this activity.

I spent about thirty minutes onthis simulation. This was a very effective tool. The quality of content was excellent. There were valid concepts for plagarism in the form of a short play which was narrated. There was also use of a quiz for the students as the story unfolded.
The potential effectiveness as a teaching and learning tool was excellent. The software was easy to use. The description of the topic had key elements which stated possible problems with plagarism. There were many tools which demonstrated the problem by using case by case scenarios. I feel that the learning objective was met because of the many types of problems to plagarism that the simulation answered.
This was a dynamic source! I enjoyed it so much that I immediately told my other librarians that they should look at this since we teach a library bilbiographic instruction class. This is a tool that is definitely needed
This simulation was very easy to uss. We are a community college so we would feel very confident in using this because the ease of use for some of our students would not be an issue.

This is a nice site. It doesn't go into a lot of detail about plagiarism, but it goes into enough to be useful. It is a fun, interactive site.
The site displays large photographs, and the connection needs to be high bandwidth.
