Turnitin allows faculty to have electronically submitted student work compared with a database of previously submitted student papers, millions of pages from journals, books and newspapers, and billions of pages from the Internet. Turnitin is currently the most used plagiarism detection software for higher education and allows faculty an additional tool to foster academic integrity.
Turnitin is available for use by all faculty at Durham College and is conveniently integrated into the Assignment tool of DC Connect. If you are interested in using Turnitin for your student's submissions, please have a look at the Assignment how-to PDF guide.
