#3 Turnitin And The Debate Over Anti-Plagiarism Software

As a student of Syracuse University I have used Turitin to check papers and I have had instructors that have use Turitin as a tool for me to submit papers. While look for new information on the software I was interested when I saw a story from NPR about Turitin that a Syracuse University professor had commented on.

The points raised by both the Syracuse University professor and the professor from Stanford University are very interesting. Before researching Turinin I thought the software was a great was to educated students on plagiarism but after reading alot of articals I am now not so sure. What do you think?
