Read below to learn more about how Copyleaks helps identify instances of plagiarism for a variety of businesses and academic institutions.

Learning Management System
Canvas, by Instructure, offers e-learning platforms to integrate with Canvas and be part of their marketplace. Now any institution that is working with Canvas has the ability to quickly integrate Copyleaks to their own environment. All of the educational settings are included in the Canvas setup to provide both teachers and students with another learning tool during their writing process. See here how Copyleaks works from within the Canvas SpeedGrader.
Their need was including an “originality” feature for their customers to help them find out if there is duplicate content elsewhere online and further improve their SEO rankings. Now, once the text has been submitted, the users receive a score including how original their content is and what other sources have used this text. SEMRush was able to level up their own product by including the power of Copyleaks.
SEO and Digital Marketing Platform
Virtual Learning Platform
Edgenuity is working with thousands of school districts around the United States to provide virtual learning for K-12. They found that many of their faculty users discovered their students were copying answers from forums and all over the internet and wanted to lower the plagiarism incidents that were happening. After implementing the Copyleaks API to their product, there has been a significant drop in plagiarized school assignments. Teachers and students are now able to view elements from the similarity report provided by Copyleaks.
Cisco offers partner programs for product resellers. They found that some of their content writers were plagiarizing from internal documents and content that was online. Their editors now use Copyleaks to check their 100 page product documents to spot cases of plagiarism. While auditing their own writing team, they also found that another company has stolen private Cisco content and the Copyleaks similarity report has been an asset for the Cisco legal team.

E-Learning & Online Degree Platform
UpGrad was in need of a plagiarism detection solution to integrate with their custom-made online learning platform. They added Copyleaks to their environment which allows the students to receive a similarity report with every assignment they submit. They are alerted if the similarity percentage is too high and are able to update their assignment accordingly.
Macmillan has integrated the Copyleaks API into their own digital learning platform, Achieve, to improve student writing. The plagiarism detection elements that are implemented in Achieve help students understand if there was accidental plagiarism before they submit their final version of an assignment. Students are also able to identify the proper sources that were used during their research and writing process.
Achieve Online Learning Platform
Advertising, Affiliate Marketing Program
Rakuten hosts an affiliate marketing program which includes description of businesses and their products. Part of Rakuten’s review process included checking if the publisher’s content is original. Their internal team uses the API to add websites from potential partners and detect if they have copied from other websites.
Their pain point was they were integrated with the Moodle LMS but the faculty wanted to add a “plagiarism barometer” so teachers can feel at ease knowing their students did not plagiarize. When working with Copyleaks, they can add a tool to their already existing LMS platform which faculty and students can access. Now teachers and students can both view the results of their similarity results directly from Moodle and there are routine seminars about preventing plagiarism both for students and faculty.
