What is Turnitin?

Turnitin Originality Checking allows educators to check students' work for improper citation or potential plagiarism by comparing it against continuously updated databases. Every Originality Report provides instructors with the opportunity to teach their students proper citation methods as well as to safeguard their students' academic integrity 

Turnitin is now integrated with D2L Brightspace! 

We are thrilled to share that we've finally been able to enable Turnitin integration within D2L Brightspace. Below are a couple quick videos on the process which is as easy as checking a couple boxes.

Below are some short video tutorials to get you started. For additional help using this tool, come visit us during our scheduled D2L Brightspace Drop-In hours.
