Turnitin is a web-based plagiarism detection service licensed by Oklahoma State University. Submitted files can be checked against professional journals, webpages, and a database of previously submitted papers for potential plagiarism.
Once Turnitin is enabled on a Canvas assignment, any student submission can be automatically scored by Turnitin. For details on how to enable Turnitin, check out the videos in the Assignments section of the Canvas webpage.
Use outside of Canvas
Instructors can submit papers directly to Turnitin without going through a Canvas
assignment. To do so requires a Turnitin account.
To get an account under OSU's license, submit a request for Turnitin account.
Once the account has been set up, you will receive an email from turnitin.com detailing how to activate your account.
