Title: OIT Announcement – Turnitin.com Account Creation Process Change

 

Description: Turnitin, the plagiarism detection software we utilize on campus, has recently made a change to their account creation process that we would like to make you aware of. In the past, we have shared an account id and password with instructors who would like to create an account directly at the Turnitin website. Because of the changes Turnitin has made to their policies, we will no longer be able to do that. Instead instructors should contact the OIT Service Desk to request an account be created for you. Once the account is created, you will receive an email to activate your account and change the password.

 

You may request a Turnitin account using this OIT Service Request: https://sjfc.teamdynamix.com/TDClient/Requests/ServiceDet?ID=30871

 

Please be aware:

·         This has no effect on student accounts within Turnitin.

·         This has no effect on instructor or student accounts if you use Turnitin directly through your Blackboard course.

·         The functionality of Turnitin has not changed.

 

For more information about Turnitin or to request a training session on the tool, please visit the Educational Technology Website.

 

Thank you
