Teaching Turnitin Similarity Report

What is Turnitin?

Turnitin is a web based originality checking service. It searches more than 4.5 billion publicly accessible Internet sites, millions of documents from ProQuest databases, the Gutenberg collection of literary classics, and several million student papers submitted to Turnitin since 1996. ETSU faculty may use Turnitin to help students develop their writing and citation skills and to ensure academic integrity.

How does one access Turnitin?

Turnitin is integrated through Desire2Learn. Instructors may enable Turnitin through the D2L dropbox. Instructors are not currently able to submit papers to a TII-enabled dropbox in D2L. If an instructor is needing to submit a personal paper or a paper on behalf of a student, please contact Academic Technology Services.


Please review the anti-plagiarism recommendations approved by Academic Council before using Turnitin in your D2L course site. View the recommendations here.
