Your instructors have access to several technology resources to help them with plagiarism detection.
Turnitin: A plagiarism prevention system used at SNHU. A student submits a paper and Turnitin checks it for plagiarism against content on the web, other student papers, and selected online library databases.
Google: In addition to Turnitin, a simple Google search can oftentimes detect plagiarism. Instructors can just put a sentence or two of a student's paper into Google and see if there are any matches.
