Plagiarism Tools

14 Sep

An esteemed college professor asked me the other day if I knew of any online plagiarism tools. In the past, I have used http://turnitin.com and http://www.articlechecker.com/, but I was determined to find a good list of tools for him. Below is a quick review of the plagiarism tools I found on Yahoo Answers.

#1 http://www.plagiarismdetect.com/
There is no download and it is completely free but you will have to sign it to use it. I tried it out and it works perfectly.

#2 http://academicplagiarism.com is another free plagiarism checker. I found this on Youtube. It scans for plagiarism by comparing documents to to the web and their own database. Also, it lets you upload documents and paste text. I'””ve been using it for a few months. I like it.

#3 http://aafter.com is a free plagiarism checker. Now, you can check any written article to see whether it has similarity with any other pages on the internet. To use this feature, you have to type *** (3 stars) and then paste The Document in the AAfter’s search box. The search result shows the links to WebPages, if any, that contains similar text as that of the document.

Do you have any plagiarism tools to add?

Online College Courses for Half Price

13 Nov

Thinking of going to college, but you can’t afford it? In the olden days you would go to your local community college, take a few courses and then later transfer to a state school. Buruck Smith wanted to offer college students an affordable, easy online alternative to taking required classes. Now you can take a handful of classes online at Straighterline for as little as $399 a class.

What is it?

What are the drawbacks?

  • Learning online is a different animal

College for Free?

13 Sep

If you are like most parents, you are looking for ways to help pay for the rising costs of college for your kids. Ben Kaplan, a former student, was looking for a way to help his parents pay for college and could not find any easily accessible resources. Yes, there are scholarships.com and many resources at your local public libraries, but there wasn’t one central resource, until now.

Ben Kaplan founded City of College Dreams to find many unknown sources of scholarships. Some you have to hear to believe.
