What is Uni-Check and how do I use it (for faculty)?
Uni-Check is a plagiarism prevention service. It is used in conjunction with Canvas to help prevent plagiarism by detecting unoriginal content in student papers. In addition to acting as a plagiarism deterrent, it also has features designed to aid in educating students about plagiarism and importance of proper attribution of any borrowed content.
Uni-Check can only be accessed by students when an instructor creates an sssignment within their Canvas course site. A Uni-Check assignment can be accessed the same way as an ordinary assignment. Instructors can set up Uni-Check for students to independently submit and check drafts of papers with a specific Canvas course.
