CourseHero, CourseSideKick, and Grammarly

Seeing quite a bit of students using websites like CourseHero and CourseSIdeKick to pull papers then submit as their own. Recently found out Grammarly has a plagiarism checker so technically the could pull someone else's paper from the website mentioned then continue to change it and have Grammarly check it until is says it wasn't plagiarized. Amazing how much work students will do to avoid work.

Have others experienced this?

  • I have not experienced this, but I do not grade papers, so do not know the prevalence of this. It does seem more effort than actually writing the paper on their own.
