Purchased by the School of Management and Business, a fantastic new resource - Avoiding Plagiarism, an interactive, online course provided by Epigeum – is now available for use by all Aberystwyth University students.
The course is broken down into three units:
What is plagiarism?
The first unit discusses what plagiarism is, some of the terms you might come across, intentional and unintentional plagiarism and the ways in which assessors can detect plagiarism.
Unit 2 covers the importance of referencing, referencing systems used and the difference between references and citations.
Unit 3 outlines way in which plagiarism can be avoided. (Epigeum, 2014)
The course is quite comprehensive and provides a number of practice scenarios, a summary and a quiz at the end. The pass-mark for the quiz is 75% and there is a certificate for all those who pass!
