Butt-saving web tools

MakeUseOf‘s Web Tools To Save Your Butt In School includes a tool that tells students if they’ve “plagiarized too much” and are likely to show up a turnitin plagiarism check.

Another program creates a fake file that can’t be opened.

. . . when your professor can’t open the file up, you can just blame it on your computer. Of course, many teachers are starting to not accept these excuses, so be careful when using this. This web tool allows you to spend hours browsing MakeUseOf instead of working on that stupid project.

Some of the other web tools are useful for actual students.
