TurnItIn for Teachers

TurnitIn is an online plagiarism prevention tool that we have used here at DE for a number of years. It may also be used for teacher to provide feedback and online annotations of work to students.

As of May 2017, TurnItIn is now integrated with My DE. In order to have students submit work to the TurnItIn service, you now only need to create a My DE assignment, choose the TurnItIn option, and change any settings you wish. You no longer need to go to the turnitin.com website to create a teacher account or a class roster as long as your class exists in MyDE.  Also, students do NOT need to create a separate TurnItIn account.

After you have created an Assignment in MyDE and set it to be a Turnitin assignment, you will be prompted to launch the Turnitin tool from MyDE's Assignment Detail in order to confirm or change any Turnitin-specific assignment settings.

For more details see the section How to use Turnitin with an assignment  in this Turnitin help page from Blackbaud (the provider for the MyDE system).
