In their enrolment packs this year, students have been given a Plagiarism information card. The card advises students that we are using a plagiarism detection software tool (Safeassign, available in all Blackboard papers). It also gives them the address of the Plagiarism information site, which includes:
- what plagiarism is
- how best to avoid plagiarising
- how to reference material of others when used in an assignment.
The address for the information page is: http://www.otago.ac.nz/study/plagiarism
You might like to include this link in your Blackboard paper, or course book, or other website that you use to support the teaching of your paper.
