I think this is a great website for an intro to plagiarism for students. It's visually appealing, easy to navigate, and presents the information in a straight forward way.

This is a quite thorough review of plagiarism which would make a good student assignment. It is written in clear, concise language. The use of "check points" or short reviews that can be emailed to instructors is a good feature.

Technical Remarks:

I found the tutorial well laid out and easy to use with consistent navigational tools.
Time spent reviewing site: I spent about 25 minutes reviewing this site.
