What is Turnitin?

Turnitin is an online tool that helps instructors provide personalized feedback to students. There are 3 main features:

  1. Ensure Originality (potential plagiarism checker)
  2. Smarter Grading (students receive legible, timely feedback while saving grade time)
  3. Streamline Peer Reviews

In addition - you can also grade using your iPad using the Turnitin for iPad app available from the AppStore.
