This autumn appeared to be rather productive for the whole our team. We can hardly manage to write blog posts about conferences and exhibitions we’ve already attended. Still, we can’t help but share with you our impressions on OEB 2015, the conference on technology-enhanced learning, held in Berlin, Germany.
On the 16-18th of November, our team presented Unicheck at ICERIICERI, the 8th International Conference of Education, Research and Innovation 2015 held in one of the most charming Spanish cities, Seville! We were one of the main official sponsors of the event and got a number of mentions, namely on the conference site, social networks and in its printed materials.
I am 24 years old, which means I was born in a world where the Internet was already a thing and I seriously can’t imagine living without it.
It is true, I must admit, that while I am young, I’m not that young, and growing up I had dial-up and only used it for special occasions. My parents even owned a multi-tome Encyclopedia, and I remember perusing it curiously with my sister for school assignments.
Do you catch yourself murmuring “White Christmas” song time and again? And a desire to re-watch “Home Alone” is getting stronger with every passing second? It’s a clear sign that a time for ho, ho, ho is coming soon with its sparkling decorations, candy canes, mistletoe, and fir trees!
Christmas is one of the most celebrated annual holidays bringing along lots of traditions deep-rooted in the ancient culture. No wonder that so many of us get ready for this special day well in advance as well as we, the Unicheck free plagiarism checker team, do. For many of us Santa-Google becomes an absolutely essential assistant: You enter requests related to Christmas dishes, party games, gifts, romantic films to watch, etc.
Okay, you’ve done a good job and written an essay for your English class. Since you consulted a few reliable sources and found amazing materials there, you made sure to use them.
You’re aware of how important it is to write original works and know about the plagiarism consequences that students can face if they cheat. The fastest and the most reliable way to check for plagiarism (even if you didn’t plagiarize intentionally) is to use plagiarism detection software. Through the example of Unicheck we’ll provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to check your work for text similarities online.
Culture and technology are undeniably fluid. This truth is evident in the progression from the Stone Age to now. We can even see it in the transition from the 1970s to now. Cheating has not been impervious to this evolution. Not many years ago, finding someone to cheat on your wife with was much harder – you actually had to talk to her! Plagiarism is similar. We will explore how much the culture of today has affected cheating.
Plagiarism. It’s that thing that everybody talks about, your teachers mention it at the start of the year in their syllabi, and you constantly groan over because you’ve heard about it so many times. You’ve heard all the rants about how if you get caught you could be punished by the university, how it would go on your record and how you could potentially lose your job in the near and not so distant future. But for so many people, they’ll point out that big red “if” in the argument. ‘If’ you get caught, there will be all these consequences. ‘I won’t get caught,’ they say, but is it really worth that risk?
How do you choose an online plagiarism percentage detector? Most of us simply enter these keywords “plagiarism checker free/online” and push the “Search” button. Then, we click through first three or five links and pick up the one, which is free and has a paste-text-here box. Simple as that. Fast, easy and free. It’s rather difficult to resist the temptation, indeed.
