What is Turnitin?

Turnitin is text-matching software which assists students with referencing and citing, and correctly acknowledging the work of others.

The way we use Turnitin has changed. Turnitin is now available for all staff and students through Moodle.

This removes the need for staff and students to log into Turnitin directly and simplifies the process of creating and submitting assignments.

Most of the features of setting up a Turnitin assignment remain the same in Moodle.
