Ilene Rockman, leader of the California State University information competency initiative, has created a useful website on plagiarism & information competency.
The plagiarism prevention software currently used by CSU Chico is Turnitin. This software is easily integrated into the Vista learning management system by using the PowerLink and is available to all instructors. No registration or passwords are required to use it.
