Urkund changes name to Ouriginal

Published Mar 08, 2021

The tool for plagiarism review in Canvas changes names from Urkund to Ouriginal when the companies Urkund and PlagScan merge. How the tool is used does not change.

The functionality is unchanged

When you create an assignment or graded discussion in Canvas will the choice of plagiarism review be “Ouriginal” instead of “Urkund”.

The tool will work exactly the same as before and you as a teacher will not experience any difference in functionality.

The name change will be gradually updated

At the moment, only the name in Canvas has changed, but KTH will change the name "Urkund" to "Ouriginal" gradually on the web. In the near future, some mixing of the names will remain, especially in static guides (eg PDF files).
