In the recent past, if you wished to use Turnitin in AsULearn, your only option was to use the Turnitin Assignment activity.  Now, we have also deployed a new '"Plagiarism Plugin' " (pardon the unfortunate name) that allows you to enable Turnitin for a regular AsULearn assignment, and for AsULearn forum posts. If you have group assignments and need Turnitin, this is a real game changer, since the Turnitin assignment type does not support groups, and AsULearn assignments do.  It's also a new potential solution if you have originality concerns with forum posts in your AsULearn course.

Info
Please note that the Turnitin Assignment type will remain, and you may continue to use it as in the past.  The new Turnitin "Turnitin Plagiarism Plugin" has been added so that you can access Turnitin's originality checking and feedback studio for AsULearn (Moodle) Assignments, and for posts that are made in AsULearn (Moodle) forums.

  4. Open this section and set 'Enable Turnitin' to Yes. Select the desired Turnitin settings for the particular assignment or forum at hand.



  5. A note about students and the Turnitin licensing agreementIf a student has never made a selection to accept or decline the Turnitin license agreement, they are blocked from posting on a forum or uploading an AsULearn assignment until they make a choice (if you've enabled the Turnitin plugin for the assignment or forum, or of course). They can click the EULA link and accept or decline.  If they accept, their submission or post goes to Turnitin.  If they decline, it only goes to AsULearn, like a regular AsULearn assignment or forum post.  After declining, the link STAYS there so they the student can go back and accept if they change their mind.
