This was an excellent presentation for the typical undergraduate. Sometimes, discussions of plagiarism focus on big-name scholars who make the mistake of not citing sources; while the humiliation of this may be clear to students, this tutorial is centered on the most common temptations of the student.

Varied examples of how academic dishonesty can occur. The tutorial touches on the academic consequences of academic dishonesty. An important point about the unacceptable practice of recycling work from other classes is addressed.

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.

Technical Remarks:

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

Technical Remarks:

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.

Technical Remarks:

The site displays large photographs, and the connection needs to be high
