TURNITIN

Turnitin is an internet-based plagiarism-prevention service.  Instructors and students can submit papers to the website, which checks for unoriginal content.  This tool helps instructors engage students in the writing process by providing feedback that can both assess and help improve students' work.  No download, registration, or login is needed.

TUTORIAL

Features:

Integration With D2L - Turnitin is already integrated into Metro State's learning environment (D2L Brightspace).  Instructors at Metro State do not need to purchase, register, or download anything.

Ease-of-Use - Enabling Turnitin within D2L is as easy as checking a box within the course in D2L.  Once enabled, instructors can submit students' work for review and assessment.

Variable Feedback - Turnitin is not simply a "plagiarism detector".  It also allows instructors to give targeted feedback in various ways (comments, rubrics, voice clips) to encourage their students' writing processes or to help them develop better skills in attribution, word usage, and formatting styles.
