Changes at TurnItIn UK

We are now into our sixth year of using the TurnItIn service, and there are several changes to the service for the new year.

From September 4th, registered users (who already have logins and passwords for the service) will see a new interface to the service when the visit the website.  The changes aim at integrating the three TurnItIn services:

  • Originality Check – the new name for the old plagiarism detection service.  Works the same as before, but shows a better representation of the submitted work (for example embedded images are now displayed)
  • GradeMark – the online marking tool which could be used as an alternative to Learn’s online (paperless) marking tools, and…
  • PeerMark – a peer assessment tool for students to mark each other’s work.

For more details of the changes, see the current Newsletter.

We are also hoping to get a revised version of the new Learn TurnItIn activity.  More details on this when it arrives!
