How do I use the Ouriginal Webinbox?

Updated on

When you use Ouriginal via Brightspace, your RU account will be connected to an @analysis.urkund.com email address. The Ouriginal Webinbox shows an inbox where all assignments will be collected.

With the Webinbox only the person who turned Ouriginal on in Brightspace will be able to retrieve the assignment.

It is advised to use the plagiarism detection in Brightspace, because everyone in the course with a teacher role or higher will be able to view the similarity scores.

Activate account

Before you use the Ouriginal Webinbox you will first need to link an Assignment to Ouriginal in Brightspace. After that Ouriginal (Urkund) will recognize your email address. For more information read How do I use Ouriginal?
