D2L Adds AI-Based Plagiarism Detection via Partnership with Copyleaks

D2L has partnered with Copyleaks to bring AI-based plagiarism detection integration to its D2L Brightspace platform.

Copyleaks technology is designed to "identify potential plagiarism and paraphrasing across 100 languages, uncover AI-generated content, verify authenticity and ownership, and empower error-free writing," according to information released by the companies. "Their AI Content Detector — the only enterprise solution available via API and learning management system integrations — is able to help detect the presence of AI content across 15 languages at the individual sentence level, as well as AI content that has been paraphrased."

Through the partnership, two of Copyleaks' tools will be available for integration with Brightspace: a generative AI text identification tool called AI Content Detection, and a plagiarism tool called Copyleaks Plagiarism Detector.

"As generative AI continues to proliferate and expand, knowing what content is human-created and what was generated by AI is crucial, especially within education," said Alon Yamin, CEO of Copyleaks, in a prepared statement.

Further information about the integration can be found on the D2L IntegrationHub.
