Brightspace: Using Turnitin (Plagiarism Detection Tool)
Simplify course assignment collection, verification and management
Are you concerned about plagiarism? Do you collect student assignments through email or in person? Do you need an easy way to set and manage deadlines? Don't clutter your inbox, save trees, and check student work for authenticity by using Turnitin!
In this hands-on workshop you will learn how to use the Turnitin anti-plagiarism tool to discourage plagiarism. This workshop will cover how you collect, verify, and grade papers with Turnitin.
Dr. Jason Todd (English and CAT+) uses Turnitin in his classes. He will explain how he uses Turnitin and share his experiences with using Turnitin.
You will be able to use one of the computers in our computer lab for the training. However, feel free to bring your own laptop, tablet, and/or smart phone so you can explore and build content in the Brightspace environment!
Fill out this form to request a Brightspace Sandbox course to use for the training.
