Be wise. Do not plagiarize! Enroll in our Plagiarism Tutorial!

The online Plagiarism Tutorial is a self-enroll Canvas course that students may register for at any time. This course covers the same plagiarism concepts covered in our former GOLD workshops, which includes identifying different types of plagiarism, paraphrasing, citing information, and more.

In the Plagiarism Tutorial, you will complete three quizzes that will check your understanding of the material as you progress through it.

Once you meet all tutorial requirements, a completion form is unlocked that you will need to fill out to notify your professor of tutorial completion.

Students, please note:  Canvas works best in Google Chrome. You may need to access the Plagiarism Tutorial in Chrome if you experience difficulty accessing the completion form.
