Turnitin is available for use through Brightspace.  Turnitin can be enabled in assignment dropboxes and works behind the scenes to provide an Originality Report. 

Depending on how dropboxes are set up, students can submit assignments multiple times and can use Originality Reports as a way to improve their writing and to ensure unintentional plagiarism is not present in the submitted work.

Librarians have created multiple resources for students to use, covering how to submit an assignment, and how to retrieve and read an Originality Report.
