Respondus StudyMate Class

StudyMate Class helps you "master the basics" of course material through web-based learning activities, self-assessments, and games. StudyMate Class improves your knowledge of core concepts and terms through web-based learning activities. The activities, such as flash cards and crosswords, use glossary terms and facts entered by students or instructors. You can practice the activities, and can even review and edit items created by classmates.

Turnitin

Turnitin is the leading originality checking and plagiarism prevention service in the world. The technology creates unique digital "fingerprints," or patterns, from text documents submitted for originality checking. Those patterns are then compared with the patterns of other information derived from the web as well as thousands of other sources likely to be used for plagiarism, such as: books; encyclopedias; subscription-based publications and databases; newspapers and periodicals.

ProctorU

ProctorU is a live online proctoring service that allows exam takers to complete their assessment at home while still ensuring the integrity of the exam for the institution. To replicate the face-to-face proctoring experience over the Internet, ProctorU connects with the student via web cam, the student's computer screen is monitored in real time, and the student's identity is authenticated.
Proctoring fees may be additional.
