Turn It In

I am visiting my mom for a couple of days. She uses a webtv box to access the Internet. This system uses a standard tv as a monitor, a very simplified computer (not storage device), and connects to the Internet through a built-in modem. It is kind of the model for some of the educational approaches that feel Internet access using standard computers is too expensive. It is a little different, but it works.

I happen to be looking through my sever log file and I noticed hits from “turnitin.com.” I was not certain what this was. TurnItIn provides educational institution plagiarism assessment services. I suppose my web site would potentially be a source of information students might “lift” for classroom papers.

So long from Iowa – that’s where the tall corn grows.
