As an educator, you have definitely come across recycled student papers not once. To bring self-plagiarism accusations against the cheaters may take much time, since you need to ensure that your proof is really irrefutable. Not all plagiarism checkers available for LMS use can tackle the issue. Though students can also become victims of an unjust plagiarism checker verdict when their final submissions are falsely considered as re-used ones just because students were allowed to pre-check their papers before sending them for grading.
Good news for all educators using Blackboard Learn™. The Unicheck plagiarism checker has recently become available for use within Blackboard Learn courses. So, if you are a fan of integrated tools within Blackboard Learn, it’s high time to register an account at unicheck.com and see it in action. It can be done either on one’s own or under the supervision of the Unicheck team.
Once the registration is completed, you’ll get access to the institution account at unicheck.com. To activate the LTI app in Blackboard Learn, your LMS administrator should obtain the API key and secret (which can be found in the API Settings section of your Unicheck account) and make initial setup. That’s all you need to get started.
