Turnitin is an online plagiarism detection tool, which screens student work against a digital database of publications, papers, and websites. In addition to plagiarism checking, Turnitin offers various grading tools for annotating and commenting on student work. Turnitin is available as an external tool that can be embedded within assignments in a Canvas course.
To learn how to set up and grade Turnitin assignments within Canvas, visit this Instructor Guide on the Turnitin website.
If you have additional questions or would like to use Turnitin independently of Canvas, please contact the Faculty Technology Center.
