Blackboard 9 includes a link to Turnitin, a plagiarism detection tool. Academic staff can use Turnitin via Blackboard 9 to identify non-original content within student assignments. Students submit their…
“Beautiful mathematics in all browsers” is the strapline to MathJax – a modern open-source display engine for mathematics. This is the second of a two-part article.
The EPS elearning team receive a number of requests from academics about how they can record their lectures and teaching materials. This article is a guide to some of the various options available to academic staff at present.
