There is a new milestone in the development of education now. Plagiarism is a pivotal problem many higher educational institutions face today. To use plagiarism checkers has become vital for the academic cheating detection. However, it is not the only challenge they should be ready to take on.
How does a good teacher look like? What qualities does he/she have? There is a big list of qualities, skills, and knowledge every teacher should have. Besides, every student may have their own image of a great teacher. So many men, so many minds.
Last week Unicheck officially started partnering up with the King Juan Carlos University located in Madrid, Spain.
The Spanish university has already obtained an annual license to use the Unicheck plagiarism checker and take academic cheating under control. 37,939 students of this university can now instantly scan their papers for originality and get accurate search results.
Modern educators should be more skillful than before. The world changes faster year by year. Such quick alterations force people to think in a different way. The most important is that people who work in other fields should keep up with times. Teachers are those who cherish a new generation and give them all skills and knowledge required for modern life. Therefore, teachers should obtain those skills and knowledge, otherwise their teaching methods are not effective.
Project study learning (or project-based learning, briefly referred to as PBL) is a new educational trend. This is a teaching method which is designed for students to help them get knowledge and skills by investigating and responding to complex questions or challenges in a certain period of time.
In addition to self-taught learning, adaptive learning is also growing in popularity. It is a computer-based educational system. The key idea behind it is that it helps present materials according to student needs and achievements.
Since adaptive learning is a computer-based educational method, it requires some special software to be applied. Such software has many features, like tracking skills, instant feedback, personalized tips and an amazing interface, looking like a computer game!
What do you value the most in LMS apps when creating another assignment for students or grading their papers? One of the choice criteria is sure to be its “labor-saving” feature. This is what our team calls “striving for a positive user-experience at all costs.” And this is the main reason why a new Unicheck update has been released. It allows saving settings for all assignments in a course with just one click.
This way you avoid adjusting settings for each assignment individually. Isn’t it labor-saving?
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.
