Stamford, CT (USA), December 2019 - Copyleaks, an artificial intelligence-based plagiarism detection software company, has announced a partnership with Macmillan Learning, an educational publishing and solutions company. The joint effort will offer plagiarism detection capabilities for students and instructors. Elements of Copyleaks’s software solution are being integrated into Achieve, Macmillan Learning’s new digital learning platform, to help students develop better academic research skills and cite correctly, and also to ensure the academic integrity of their work.
"By integrating Copyleaks’ API seamlessly with our new tools, Achieve will help students avoid plagiarism in a pedagogically sound way, intervening with instruction before they submit their work," said Leasa Burton, Vice President, Humanities, Macmillan Learning.
Copyleaks uses advanced AI capabilities to identify close paraphrases from sources, in addition to identical text matches. The company’s technology compares the content of student papers to content published on the internet, in databases, and in academic journals to check for plagiarism. Every scan provides a list of results and a report showing results of the 1:1 comparison in more than a hundred languages.
The integration into Achieve, which offers tools to support the teaching and learning of academic writing and research skills, including the proper documentation of sources, will be ready for Achieve English and Composition users in early 2020.
"We are proud to partner with Macmillan Learning, a leader in educational content and digital solutions," said Alon Yamin, CEO of Copyleaks. "This partnership will provide teachers and students with the broadest set of solutions to create and assess educational content and assignments."
Copyleaks is available through Macmillan Learning, as well as through the Copyleaks plagiarism detector website for educational and enterprise businesses.
