This was a very content full week. It was almost overwhelming amount of information on a single subject. It was interesting to look at the subject of copyright and plagiarism from both a student and a educator position.As someone who has created a unique body of work and know that I have been properly cited, it is of value to me personally to know that this is being taught and utilized properly.
