Blackboard: 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.
Drs. Elizabeth Yost Hammer (CAT and Psychology) and Mark Gstohl (Theology and CAT) use Turnitin in their classes. They will explain how they use Turnitin and share their experiences with using Turnitin.
