Brent Spitler – Using SafeAssign for Plagiarism Detection in Blackboard

Brent Spitler is an Assistant Professor in the GRCC Business Department.  Mr.Spitler has been teaching full-time at GRCC for three years.  Prior to accepting the full-time position at GRCC, Mr.Spitler worked as an adjunct instructor while employed with the Johnson Controls-Automotive Systems Group.  During his eleven years in industry, Mr.Spitler worked through rotations within engineering and supervision but spent most of his time in the JCI Commercial Finance Division.  His primary curriculum focus at GRCC is Quantitative Studies and General Business Management.

Efficient and Effective Plagiarism Detection

As a faculty member in the Business Department, I am always looking for ways in which I can better assess my students.  Because my discipline requires the use of writing papers and analyzing case studies, having access to tools in Blackboard that provide an effective way for me to check for plagiarism is critically important.  This is where the SafeAssign Tool comes in.  I can easily create and deliver assignments to students that are automatically checked against other student submissions as well as web sites like Wikipedia and more!

The SafeAssign tool really made a big difference to me and has enabled me to enhance my teaching.  The seamless integration and excellent execution of the SafeAssign tool within Blackboard provides tangible value to me as an instructor.
