Turnitin helps educators evaluate student work and provide great feedback to improve student learning. The cloud-based service is available for faculty at Tennessee Tech through the TBR site license. It offers plagiarism prevention, online grading and peer review in one easy-to-use service.
Get Started through iLearn
If you use iLearn, you can just go into the system and when you setup an Assignment folder, you can select the check box option under Originality Check to Enable for this folder. By doing this through iLearn, it will automatically setup an account for you in
Turnitin. NOTE: Assignments added this way will not be visible to your account if
you directly login to turnitin.com.
If you are already using iLearn, this is the preferred usage.
Make sure to view the settings options available in Turnitin. (These are also outlined in the video about Creating an Assignment below.) Sometimes you might want to have a document check against the Turnitin repositories, but you don't want the paper submitted to them. For example: you are requiring a draft prior to a final paper or there is some IP associated with the document.
