Ouriginal (Urkund)

Ouriginal is a system designed to detect plagiarism.

Lund University holds a campus license for the Ouriginal system, and it is intended to be used for all theses written within undergraduate and advanced level education. Several courses at Lund University also utilize it for other assignments. Ouriginal is also meant for works conducted in doctoral-level education.

Ouriginal in Canvas

Ouriginal is integrated into Canvas and was previously known as Urkund. When logged into Canvas, you don't need any other account besides your teacher role in your Canvas course. You can easily set it up so that Ouriginal checks all student assignments submitted through tasks or assignments. In Canvas, you will then receive information about how Ouriginal has checked the content through the overview in assessments or individually through the feedback tool Speedgrader.
