The tool enables instructors to scan files and/or free text for plagiarism/AI outside of an assignment. The tool is helpful for late submissions, non-assignment modules such as discussion board posts, and your own class materials. Instructors can view the AI & similarity score of their uploads at a glance.
Once your admin has set up the Instructor Plagiarism + AI Scan Tool you can follow the steps below to access it.
In your Moodle course, toggle on Edit Mode from the top right corner.
After Edit Mode is enabled, you can add an activity or resource to the course.

We recommend hiding the tool from students in order to avoid confusion. To do so, make sure that Edit Mode is toggled on, then click the 3 dots to open the dropdown menu where you'll select Hide.
The tool will now be accessible to you anytime you open the course.
