Why Galileo?

When Matthew taught in the post-secondary space he quickly realized that plagiarism and cheating was at an epidemic level. The time it took to properly check submissions against each other was all consuming, and unfair to ask of any educator. Matthew quickly developed a toolset to automate that process. The toolset saved countless unpaid marking hours, and was devastatingly effective.
