Turnitin Service in Canvas

With the semester moving along at a rather alarming speed, I would like to remind faculty that Dominican does indeed have a site license to the Turnitin originality service through our Canvas learning management system.  It can be enabled any time you require an Assignment to be submitted online via a checkbox available that appears when you choose a Submission Type of “online” and “file upload.”  Please note that our site license to this service is available ONLY to Dominican University students through our Canvas courses.

Also, since many of you like to have students submit first drafts (or second, or third…..) as part of the same assignment, you will want to be sure to check the “Advanced Turnitin Settings” link available when setting up the assignment and UNCHECK the options for “Other Student Papers” and “Turnitin Repository,” or else the student’s final version will be detected as plagiarism against the first versions.

There is documentation available for both faculty as well as students via http://duit.dom.edu and following the appropriate “Support for” link and then selecting Canvas.  There are also articles for both faculty and students with accompanying PDFs in the ever-expanding Knowledge Base in the Support Center site at https://supportcenter.dom.edu.
