Turnitin.com LogoTurnitin's plagiarism prevention system lets you effectively check all of your students' work in a fraction of the time necessary to scan a few suspect papers using a search engine.

Turnitin on ANGEL

You no longer need to have access to the Turnitin.com website to use Turnitin. ANGEL now has the option of adding a Turnitin drop box to the Lesson tab.

  1. Go to the Lessons tab of the course you would like the Turnitin drop box in
  2. Click on the Add Content link
  3. Choose the Turnitin Drop Box option
  4. Fill in the necessary data and press Save.

When creating the Turnitin drop box there are many options available. For detailed instructions on each option download the ANGEL/Turnitin instructions.
