As a plagiarism prevention tool, Turnitin instantly identifies papers containing unoriginal material. Turnitin’s comprehensive plagiarism prevention system allows instructors to quickly and effectively check all of their students’ work in a fraction of the time necessary to scan a few suspect papers using a search engine. Below are a few useful tutorials to assist you in getting started with Turnitin.
How to Access Turnitin
To get started with Turnitin, log into Blackboard and browse to the Center for Faculty Excellence in your My Organizations list. Select the Subscription Resources menu item on the left navigation in the course. Instructions are provided in the Turnitin section.
Your faculty member provides access once they have created their Turnitin area. Contact your instructor with any questions about access to their section.
As Turnitin is a standalone system completely separate from Blackboard or UST, the primary source of support and training will come from the vast knowledge base contained on Turnitin.com as well as their assortment of tutorials for both instructors and students. Turnitin’s native support even includes a live online assisted walkthrough of the product given daily.
