Urkund is a text-recognition system that looks for similarities. When a text written by a student is sent to Urkund, the document is checked against three main sources: the Internet, published material and works by students. If the document shows similarities with content from these sources, the system will indicate these similarities. The analysis is presented in a report that is then sent to the teacher that requested the analysis. The teacher makes the final judgement if plagiarism has in fact occurred.
