The Internet can be a tempting source of cut-and-paste plagiarism for students. Text-matching tools like Turnitin and SafeAssign (now part of Blackboard’s Assignments tool) can provide a strong defense against plagiarism and can also be used to help students better learn how to properly cite sources in their work. Turnitin’s Grademark function further allows you to create custom feedback messages to speed up marking common errors in student writing, and even provides a simple tool for recording short audio recordings to humanize markups and provide encouragement. This session includes hands-on practice with the tools as well as a general discussion of online feedback strategies.
Prerequisites: Basic familiarity with Blackboard
Technical Requirements: A Blackboard course site to work in and a laptop
