- research study and infographic
lesson plans for teaching about plagiarism - provided by Turnitin
webcast "Improvisation an Plagiarism: Fostering a Culture of Creativity" (4:00-10:12)

these show a match to existing content - not immediately plagiarism
ETS e-rater - instant diagnostic feedback on grammar, spelling, usage, mechanics, and style

GradeMark Interactive Tutorial (requires you be logged in)

time to work and ask questions
