TurnItIn for Teachers
TurnitIn is an online originality advisor, plagiarism prevention, and AI detection tool available for use by DE teachers. It may also be used by a teacher to digitally provide feedback and online annotations of work to students.
As of May 2017, TurnItIn was integrated with My DE. In order to have students submit work to the TurnItIn service, you now 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.
When you create an Assignment in MyDE and set it to be a Turnitin assignment, you also need to enable to option to add it to your gradebook even if you do not use the MyDE gradebook. That is necessary to provide you the setup options for Turnitin specific features. (You can ignore the gradebook stuff otherwise, and student will not see any grades unless you explicitly share them.)
After you have created the Turnitin Assignment in MyDE, you will be prompted to launch the Turnitin tool from MyDE's Assignment Detail in order to setup any Turnitin-specific assignment settings. If Turnitin setup is required, you should see a reminder in a yellow banner at the top of the Assignments page for your class and in the Assignment Center. (See image below.) Click on the Turnitin setup link.
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).
