Digital Identity


  • Share-Ling:
    • Repository of Teaching Materials designed by CUNY Linguistics GTF & Adjuncts for the classes we have taught.
  • CUNY Academic Commons Wiki:
    • Great source of resources, pros and cons of each. Best for early stages of planning a class or looking for a design improvement – can be a bit overwhelming if just looking for a quick fix.
  • CUNY Academic Commons
    • Resource for you to connect with other GC students. Make as many blog/webpages as you would like (this is a great format for hosting course materials if you opt out of blackboard)



  • Voicethread
    • The free version allows you to record videos, put audio to slides, and host classes

Plagiarism Detectors

  • turnitin.com
    • By far the most popular tool for detecting plagiarism. Students upload their papers and turnitin.com reports back to you if there is a high chance it has been plagiarized.
    • Note: Your campus may use something different than this. Email the librarians, they will know!
