Turnitin with Blackboard Workshop

Tue., October 04, 2016 at 2:00 PM
Do you use Turnitin and Blackboard already, but end up creating separate accounts for both you and your students? And because of this your students must now submit their assignments in two places? Have you thought about using Turnitin and want to know more about the tool? If you answer Yes to either of these questions, this workshop is for you! In this session, you will learn how to use Turnitin directly within your Blackboard course streamlining the process for students to submit work in one place and for you to access the files, originality reports and grade their work all in one place as well. Please note, the integration with Blackboard does not support an integration with the PeerMark features of Turnitin. » Register Now!
