This page tells you how to get started with using Turnitin.
The Introductory Video on Turnitin's Product Demonstrations page provides a useful introduction to the Turnitin Plagiarism Detection system:
Integrations are available in Learn, Moodle and PebblePad that allow you to add a Turnitin drop box within a course or a gateway. This is straightforward to set up and allows your students to submit their assignments within our Learn or Moodle VLEs or our PebblePad PLE for automatic plagiarism checking.
If you use the Turnitin in this way you will no longer need to access Turnitin via the website. It is not possible to access assignments created in a Turnitin integration via the website so you should not combine both routes.
Further information about the Learn integration can be found at:
To access the Turnitin Plagiarism Detection service through their website (rather than Learn) staff should apply for an Instructor account by completing the following form:
Completed forms should be sent to Learning Services, Information Services, 19 Buccleuch Place. An account will then be created for you and the details sent to you by email.
You need to ensure that your students are fully informed about the use of Turnitin. For further details see:
