TurnItIn is a Web-based service that can find and highlight matching or unoriginal text in a written assignment. Turnitin basically checks the assignment against its database of materials to look for matches or near-matches in strings of text. Faculty can send their students' assignments to the TurnItIn database or allow students to send their own assignments to the service for checking.
Funding for this service is managed by ITS.
Faculty can request an account for use with their course. Students must provide written consent and permission before work can be submitted to Turnitin.com.
This service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with the exception of upgrades, maintenance, and scheduled outages. Outages are posted in ITS Alerts.
Faculty and student guides are available in the 'Quickstarts & User Guides' section in the TurnItIn link below.
