Academic dishonesty is one of the most burning problems in the world of academia, and while many educators want to believe that students are completely honest in their learning, Google alone shows over 261M results on “how to cheat on a test”. Why?

Among other things, conventional education is still struggling to provide an engaging and personalized learning experience. Therefore, students, aren’t getting fully involved in what and how they learn. Also, a chronic lack of time, competitive social and academic environment, and the need to repay student loans create this urgency of getting the best grades and graduating at any cost. It results in students turning to plagiarism to help them succeed. 

On average, 39% of students admit to cheating on tests, and one in seven students pays essay mills to get their work written for them.

Education has clearly shifted, and it’s amazing that one single piece of software like Kannu can serve as an inclusive medium of everything educational institution comprises.

Academic misconduct has evolved since the times of hand-written assignments, and so have the tools used to detect and prevent it in text. Most importantly, present-day plagiarism prevention tools are built not to punish negligent learners, but instead to help them detect bottlenecks and challenges in their learning process and still be able to get a high-quality education. After all, it’s the success of the students that defines the effectiveness of the entire educational system.
