Marshall University Recognized for Affordable Distance Learning by AffordableCollegesOnline!
Due to budget cuts in our area, Information Technology can no longer provide the annual payment for Turnitin.com. The current subscription will end July 2014. Blackboard currently offers an alternative called Safe Assign. You can use Safe Assign to prevent plagiarism and create opportunities to help students identify how to properly attribute sources rather than paraphrase. Safe Assign is an effective deterrent and educational tool.
Safe Assign compares submitted assignments against a set of academic papers to identify any overlap. This is based on a unique text matching algorithm capable of detecting exact and inexact matches between papers and source material.
For more information on this tool, please visit our SafeAssign page.
All semester and summer sections will close at midnight after the last full day of the term. These dates are set two years in advance by Academic Affairs and students will not be granted access to course sections beyond this time unless they are granted an Incomplete or need access for a grade appeal. Any other requests for access must come through your academic division and the Provost. IT is not able to grant access to any student unless permission through academic divisions have been granted prior to the start of the term.
