Bloomington, MN (August 3, 2023) — As educators continue to understand the challenges and opportunities presented by artificially generated content, Edmentum has partnered with Copyleaks, a market-leading AI-based text analysis platform to enable teachers to detect potential plagiarism and the presence of AI content across multiple formats including text and images. Edmentum will offer the Copyleaks platform as an add-on solution to its Courseware and Apex Courses products in time for the start of the 2023-24 academic year.
“With the meteoric rise of generative AI tools over the past several months, we have focused on the best way to address educator concerns around academic integrity, including plagiarism and AI generated content. It was important for us to identify a partner that could provide a constructive rather than punitive experience. Through Copyleaks' flexible tool and reports, teachers can easily detect potential plagiarism and work with students to ensure their writing is their own,” explained Todd Mahler, Chief Product Officer, Edmentum. “It’s critical that we help educators and students understand the possibilities generative AI has surfaced. Copyleaks will help us do just that.”
“Generative AI continues to change the educational landscape, literally re-writing the definition of plagiarism and the guidelines of academic integrity,” said Alon Yamin, CEO of Copyleaks. “That’s why we’re beyond thrilled to partner with Edmentum, the leading provider of online learning programs, and to bring our cutting-edge AI technology to Edmentum’s Courseware and Apex Courses products in the 2023-24 academic year, furthering our efforts to provide educators with the necessary tools to empower responsible AI use, encourage learning and originality, and ensure the authenticity of all learning content.”
In a recent worldwide study, Copyleaks found that 12.18% of high school student papers and assignments contained AI-generated content. By offering Copyleaks as an add-on solution to Edmentum Courseware and Apex Courses, teachers will gain access to tools for evaluating student work and reports that indicate possible plagiarism or use of AI generated content including GPT-4 and Bard. With these tools, educators can intervene with students as needed to provide the right level of support and coaching. Edmentum’s own teachers also will have access to Copyleaks through EdOptions Academy and Apex Learning Virtual School.
