What is Turnitin2?

Did you know that Turnitin is more than a plagiarism checking software? Turnitin provides powerful tools that can help your students improve their writing -- from first draft to final edited paper. Turnitin is a web-based collaborative writing solution that includes three powerful functions: OriginalityCheck plagiarism prevention, PeerMark peer reviewing, and GradeMark online grading for essays and papers.  Note: Currently only Originality Check is integrated with Canvas.

Turnitin Academy Live is a new 10-session course that will lead instructors through a powerful pedagogy for "writing to learn." Each one-hour online class explores practical methods for incorporating the use of Turnitin to encourage original writing and deliver more meaningful feedback, while engaging students in the writing process and streamlining class activities.

  Professional Development  

The course is taught by Renee Bangerter, an English instructor at Saddleback College, and a Turnitin power user. She has been conducting professional development seminars for Turnitin since 2008.

The course begins on August 28th and meets every Tuesday through the end of October. Can't join us live? No problem, recordings of all classes will be available the following day so you can access them on-demand. Classes can be taken individually or as an entire series for continuing education units (CEUs).
