Turnitin provides instructors with the tools to prevent plagiarism, engage students in the writing process, and provide personalized feedback.
NOTE: Integrations are available to use Turnitin within Moodle. You do not need to request access to turnitin.com if you are using the integration within Moodle
NOTE: Students access to turnitin thru the assignments set up by their instructor. This includes undergraduate, graduate and Ph.D. students
Instructors can use Turnitin on its own by visiting www.turnitin.com. If you have never used Turnitin before, as an instructor you will need to request access to turnitin.com (ONLY IF NOT USING THE MOODLE INTEGRATION). We will set up a user for you and send you information on how to access and proceed. Please email email@example.com to request access. If you are using with Moodle, please use the integration option listed below.
There is also a module that works with turnitin.com that is built directly into Moodle. So if you are having your class submit an assignment and wish for them to submit to turnitin and get a plagiarism report as well, this is a great option. You can add the module the same way you add a regular moodle assignment, but instead of choosing Assignment in the menu, you will have to choose External Tool. Once this is added, you can configure which external tool you are using by specifying Turnitin from a drop-down menu in the settings of this module.
Here is a link to a tutorial on MoodleAnswers.com that explains this process.
