Turnitin for OpenLab and other online platforms

Turnitin is an online tool to check plagiarism against a paper’s originality. It checks a paper against many sources, including online journals, newspapers, and even previously submitted student papers. In addition to checking for plagiarism, the tool can be used to help improve student writing. Turnitin can be used within Blackboard or on its own via a Web-based version, which is good for OpenLab users. In this workshop, we will cover how to use Turnitin with OpenLab or whichever online platform you choose via the Web-based version.
