In an educational context, we are faced with similar challenges. How do we keep the administration, faculty, staff and students well informed about institutional policies and procedures? How do we ensure the student body receives accurate and up-to-date information to help them achieve their educational and career goals? How to check for plagiarism cases? In addition, we hope to build learning communities-communities of students, instructors, administration, faculty and staff all collaborating and constructing strong relationships that provide the foundation for students to achieve their goals with greater success. We also want to promote information sharing so users can build on their experiences at the institution. Plus, we want to provide seamless integration with legacy and other applications in some easy, modifiable and reusable way. One solution to these goals is to provide a support tool for such learning through a learning portal. This portal should provide all users (e.g. students, instructors) with valuable information required. However, building and modifying learning portal is no small task, especially when you consider the shrinking budgets and limited resources in today’s economy. Java portlet presents a new solution in which new functionality can be plugged to existing portals. This study shed some light on an ongoing research to develop a plagiarism detection portlet for java student assignments.
