Students sometimes inadvertently plagiarize because they don’t know how to paraphrase. To remedy this gap in their learning, I created a paraphrase checker for the Virtual Writing Tutor. The concept is simple. The system shows you which words are the same and need to be paraphrased.
This feature is very useful for students and for blog writers who want to avoid being sued or being penalized by Google for identical wording on their blogs. Try this experiment.
