After spending some time in the academic space, I quickly realized that there is an ever-growing problem with plagiarism and wholesale cheating in post-secondary educations. While spending some time teaching at Fleming College, I developed a small prototype that exponentially cut down on the amount of time I spent checking assignments for cheating.

While the administration suggested that no faculty would actually want such a tool, I decided to spend some time and resources on bringing the tool to market. While the adoption rate is slow, the tool continues to grow.

Highlights

  • Cross-platform .NET Core based application framework.
  • Multi-threaded operations.
  • Automated build and installation packaging on Windows and macOS.
  • Initially a commercial offering with licensing considerations.
