Adding Avoiding Plagiarism Module to Canvas Course

With the transition to Canvas, the Library has adapted and shared an Avoiding Plagiarism module in Canvas. All content is the same between the live webinars, the Blackboard organization, and the Canvas module.

The Canvas module includes four videos with embedded check point questions, a 20 point review quiz, and helpful resources linked throughout the module. The review quiz will automatically be added to an instructor's gradebook.


To add the module to your Canvas course.

  1. Open your course.
  2. Click Import from Commons in the upper right corner of the page to be taken to the Canvas Commons.
  3. Search for Thompson Library.
  4. In the resulting content look for the Avoiding Plagiarism module and select it.
  5. On the module's page you can preview the content before clicking Import/Download to open a side menu.
  6. On the side menu select the course you want to import the module, then click Import.
  7. The module will appear in your course and gradebook shortly.

Self-enroll Blackboard Organization

For online students or those unable to attend a live session, we created a self paced Blackboard course with the same content as the live sessions. The only difference being that the content is divided into two, 30-minute tutorials with additional review quizzes. The results of these quizzes can be emailed to the professor or students can take screen shots of their results.
