Complete Online Package includes the following databases:
Turnitin.com is a website available to teachers and students that allows you to create an account and have students submit their papers to that account. Once the paper is submitted to the website it will check for:
1. Plagiarism- it checks the paper against the internet, journals and magazines and any other essay that was submitted to turnitin.com. As you can imagine, it is a nice way to keep the honest people honest.
2. Grammar errors- A nice option for teachers who are a little rusty on grammar. It marks the questionable passages and allows you to make your own comments/suggestions.
3. Peer review-Allows peers to give input on a selected paper.
The tutorials on the right demonstrate how to create an account and how to submit a document.
