In conjunction with Morton College's Teaching and Learning Center the Instructional
Technologist supports faculty in the effective use of technology in teaching
and learning. This includes conducting training workshops for faculty and
providing group and one-on-one consultations with faculty seeking to
incorporate educational technology into the curriculum. The Instructional
Technologist is also available to assist faculty in detecting and eliminating
electronic plagiarism as well as incorporating online information literacy
resources into instruction.
The Morton College Library offers an online plagiarism prevention service for the Morton College Community called TurnItIn. This database is a proprietary
system that instantly identifies papers containing unoriginal material and acts as a powerful deterrent to stop student plagiarism before it starts.
TurnItIn can be used in conjunction with Blackboard and is found under Course Content > Assessments of your Blackboard Course Site. Please note, if you wish to use TurnItIn as a stand-alone plagiarism prevention service you will need to create an account. Please contact the Instructional Technologist for more information on accessing this resource.
