PlagScan released its latest Moodle PlugIn

Our motto for the 2019 Version: Transparency, Organisation, Collaboration


As you probably know, PlagScan developed a full integration on one of the most renown open source LMS Moodle so that users could benefit from PlagScan solutions without navigating between an LMS and our features. In 2019, we are now implementing a new version to enhance user experiences.

6 reasons why we recommend to upgrade to the new version:

If you are a Teacher you can now :

  • Edit plagiarism reports and leave comments for your student. You are not a passive reader anymore but can actively work with the documents your student submitted.
  • Access your colleagues’ assignments and review the plagiarism reports. You just need to be enrolled into the course.
  • Select if  PlagScan’s Plugin should take the file or online text submission from your student in order to generate the interactive report.

The + feature that turns your life around: PlagScan takes into account all details of your assignments, when you create them for an optimal analysis of your student papers.

If you are an Administrator, now you can

  • Authenticate users: PlagScan’s users are matched with the Moodle ones. This will also allocate uploaded documents to their individual accounts for new assignments. You can then distinguish activities and permissions better.
  • However, you can still choose to associate your documents with your main PlagScan account if you prefer that all documents go to one user. The consequence will be that you will be reading the static version of the plagiarism report (you can not save changes or add comments) once the analysis will be done.

If you are a Student, now you can

  • See your plagiarism report with all the relevant markings. Your teacher may have left comments for you to take into account.
