Benefits of our Moodle integration

Everyone wants a native and deep integration with their LMS. Our Moodle integration enables you to integrate PlagScan natively into Moodle. This way, all your assignments can be checked for plagiarism without the need of an external interface.

Your instructors and students have automatic access to their respective side of the PlagScan functionalities through your Moodle instance. The integration is fully automatic and enhances your user experience while keeping your workflow simple.

Moodle Interface

Improved access and visuals

Our user interface is directly integrated into your Moodle interface as a new column. The instructor and student interfaces focus on the specific needs of both user groups.

Advanced submission settings

Teachers and course administrators have the possibility to change submission settings with a simple menu. Such settings allow teachers to enable specific actions related to student submissions, like checking the documents individually as soon as they are uploaded or all together at the deadline. With the re-submission option you can allow students to replace their previously uploaded files with their new submissions.

User authentication

Moodle instructors, teachers and students are offered their own PlagScan account to guarantee the best data-ownership structure to make sure only the users who are supposed to access a document will be able to so. This will also allocate uploaded documents to their individual accounts for new assignments allowing you to better distinguish activities and permissions. PlagScan does all this without you having to do anything on the Moodle interface; it is all done automatically and instructors will never need to add users manually.

PlagScan Plagiarism Report

Interactive reports

Open, edit, and leave comments in the PlagScan plagiarism reports directly for your students. Every match can be investigated in detail by opening the side-by-side comparison with highlighted matches in the source. You will not be relegated as a passive reader anymore and will be able to actively work and collaborate with the documents your student submitted. Read more.

Automatic involvement of collaborators

The system automatically involves teachers that have access to a submission but are not their owner. This way, teachers can access documents and submission settings without having to ask for special rights. They can also share reports with their colleagues, allowing them to review and comment on them.
