The discussion starts with Susan sharing her experience as to how she and Kristina used to get one cheating case a year and how they are now flooded with plagiarism cases. Kristina agrees that there has been a surge in these academic integrity cases. They introduce plagiarism or cheating detection software which can be a very helpful tool for universities and educational institutions to take appropriate action on the students who do not display academic honesty. Eric Gibbs, the President of Ouriginal, explains that the tool is not about assuring academic integrity but prevention of plagiarism in the first place.
In today’s world of advanced technology, certain students are tempted to adopt shortcuts, which has been made worse by the pandemic. Eric further explains how the global pandemic has challenged both students and instructors with online classes. On top of that, there is the issue of academic file sharing sites, which Eric feels is more serious and is present at a larger scale in the student community, sororities and fraternities. These unauthorized file-sharing sites have spread to even sports teams and science clubs.
The podcast is an eye-opener covering some of the most burning topics related to academic integrity, intellectual property and the like. The software ‘Ouriginal’ is available at an institutional level. It is not sold to an individual student or faculty member. The tool was designed to support the institution’s academic integrity initiatives. Parents, teachers, instructors, coordinators and students who wish to learn more can click on the link below.
