    Yeah, I think so. I pay £5 a month to use Coursework.info. All the content on the website goes though Turnitin anti-plaugarism software, and when I submit my coursework, that too goes through the same software.

    So you are posting your assignments as well and are they paying you anything for that?

    What does the Turnitin anti-plaugarism software actually do?

    I think it scans the text into the system, and then compairs any other text with the text, sort of like a search-engine. Thus, if you copy something word for word it recognises it. No doubt it then brings up the piece of coursework, and tutors can start to plot the student's demise .

    As a student, I would never have done it, and I'm very much against it.

    Scans the coursework and checks it against other people work; books, journals, internet websites etc. Literally everywhere. Returns anything that looks like it's been copied.

    I can't imagine there's a uni that doesn't use it or software like it.

    I've never posted coursework online, but I have helped mates who come to do the same modules at a later date.

    I agree. I simply cannot see how the system of being able to 'buy' pieces of coursework, or effectively 'buy better grades' can be seen to be fair. To be honest I think it's a bad thing that TSR is partners with the coursework.info site, but yeah - nothing much I can do about that.

    I certainly, certainly would never pay for coursework, nor would I sell my own.
    If I was in the situation where I needed to buy a piece of work in order to get good grades, there is obviously a deeper problem which wasting my money on this won't help.

    I share it. I wouldn't charge for it and would never pay for it.
    If it helps someone get started I see no issue unless copied.
