I am a professor for Media and Computing at the HTW Berlin

I teach various media and software-oriented subjects. Projects on Internet and eLearning interest me, as well as my work on detecting and educating about plagiarism.

Check out my plagiarism FAQ, my portal with the Plagiarism Detection Software Tests, my blog about good scientific practice, and my eLearning unit "Fremde Federn Finden".

My book on plagiarism, "False Feathers: A Perspective on Academic Plagiarism" was published in 2014. I published a chapter in the "Handbook of Academic Integrity" on text-matching software in 2016.

Online I am active in the VroniPlag Wiki group, which documents plagiarism in dissertations, and in the Wikipedia project. I use the name WiseWoman in both projects. The new text comparison tool similarity-texter was produced by a student, the old one is here.

I am a founding member of Wikimedia Deutschland, there is a Wikipedia page about me and I can be found as Q1181545 on Wikidata.

I am fellow of the Gesellschaft für Informatik and a member of the GI working group "Computing and Ethics". Our book, Gewissensbisse, was published in October 2009. We blog at Gewissensbits.

Information about my remote teaching experiments can be found online.

Current favorite quote

The people should never be deceived, under any pretext or for any purpose. It would not only be criminal but detrimental to the revolutionary cause, for deception of any kind, by its very nature, is shortsighted, petty, narrow, always sewn with rotten threads, so that it inevitably tears and is exposed.
~ Mikhail Bakunin
