Hi, @dwillmore! I just had a demo with CopyLeaks yesterday and plan to start their free three-week trial on Monday for my faculty. We are looking at this product because our current plagiarism software, Ouriginal, was bought by Turnitin and is being shut down at the end of the year.
I looked at CopyLeaks based on the recommendation of another college that switched to it a little while ago and has been very happy with it. In the demo, it seemed like it pretty much had everything Ouriginal had, so nothing new and super exciting, but I also don't think we will lose any features/functionalities. The price for CopyLeaks is slightly higher than Ouriginal, but isn't bad (or out of our price range) and is likely a LOT lower than Turnitin. Something else interesting is if you sign a contract with them by the end of May, they are waiving the set-up/implementation fee.
I hope this helps and in three weeks, I'll have more insight to share! 🙂
Hi, @John_Lane We've been using Copyleaks as our primary plagiarism detector since June 2022 and have been happy with it. It's not flashy, but it does what we need it to do and at a very reasonable price. It's also very user-friendly. I use Turnitin at another school I teach at, and I find Copyleaks much much easier to configure and use as a teacher. Hope this helps! Kona
Hi and thanks for the quick reply. We're new to Canvas and am excited about the change. I find it amazing how much the anti-plagiarism space has grown over the years. Maybe soon, we can get a chance to re-evaluate our current tool and other applications, as well.
