In this study, an online compiler and a source code plagiarism detection tool have been included into the Moodle based distance education system of our Computer Engineering department. For this purpose Moodle system has been extended with the GCC compiler, and the Moss source code plagiarism detection tool. We observed that using the online compiler and the plagiarism detection tool reduces time and effort needed for the assessment of the programming assignments; prevents our students from plagiarism; and increases their success in their programming based Data Structures course.
