Turnitin is a plagiarism detection program. It reviews student papers to determine if there are similarities with other works. 

Turnitin detects similarities between student work and: 

 Scholarly publications
Internet archives
Turnitin’s global repository of student papers 

It notifies instructors when there are red flags (white text, non-English characters). 

It is integrated directly into D2L, but needs to be activated at the assignment level. 

CCIT has created resources for instructors to familiarize themselves with Turnitin. For directions on how to use Turnitin, see below:
