Document for G Suite
Integrated security against plagiarism directly in Google Classroom
Urkund is the leading system for detecting and preventing plagiarism in homework, digital tests and knowledge checks in primary, secondary and upper secondary schools. Plagiarism is a common problem that has escalated as it becomes easier to find and share information on the Internet.
More time for educational activities
Urkund for G Suite is an extension / plug-in in the Chrome browser that Online Partner has developed for all schools that use Google Classroom in teaching. The extension connects the tools and makes Urkund an integral part of Google Classroom.
With a few simple clicks, all homework and other school assignments submitted to the Google Classroom can be quickly sent for plagiarism control at Urkund. The same also applies to tests and knowledge checks that are done in the test app ChromEx. Urkund makes a comparative analysis of the students’ documents on the Internet, in publishing materials and previously submitted student materials. A report is then generated and sent to the teacher.
Urkund for G Suite saves a lot of time for the teacher and thus frees up important time for teaching and the pedagogical activities. At the same time, students gain increased knowledge and understanding of the meaning of plagiarism, the importance of quoting correctly and critically examining sources.
To use the app, an active subscription with Urkund is required.
