Basic English Blog Response

 As a writer and student, it is important to think for yourself.  This is particularly true when you write.  Online classes require a lot of writing, and while you are strengthening your skills here, you want to prepare for the future.  One of those challenges will be adding sources to your writing and quoting from your textbooks.  While this class has no formal research requirements, it is a good time to familiarize yourself with what is expected when using sources.

Plagiarism is intellectual theft, and Keiser University takes it very seriously.   You may see when you submit your work in the assignment area of your Keiser courses that there is a link called “Safe Assign.”  Safe Assign checks your paper against millions of sources on the Internet and produces an Originality Report.  The Originality Report calculates the percentage of phrases and sentences that are identical to other sources.  Originality Reports are used by instructors to assist in plagiarism detection.  If you copy a passage and do not give credit, the Originality Report indicates that.

The goal of your work to be original.  If you wrote a song, you wouldn’t want someone else to record it , pretend it is theirs, and not give you credit.  The same holds true for printed work.

To help understand, you will travel to the English Help Center and watch a short video on plagiarism and originality.   To locate the English Help Center, go to the Keiser Blackboard homepage and look under My Organizations.  It is in the same area where you found the OWL last week.  Access the English Help Center, click on the Plagiarism and Academic Integrity link on the left navigation bar, and then click on the Plagiarism Overview link.

Then you will take a trip to the land of originality by conducting a Google search for originality.  Find an image, printed piece, or video which presents originality.  This may be specifically searching for originality, or you may find a picture, music video, or printed piece that demonstrates originality.  Post the image, video, or graphic into your blog post and write 250 words on the following:

  • What you learned from the plagiarism video that you didn’t know before
  • Why the image, printed piece, or video you found represents originality to you
