Turnitin is an online plagiarism detection service. It is fully integrated with the Assignments tool in Courses (powered by Sakai). Reports provided by Turnitin should not be considered concrete proof of plagiarism or academic dishonesty, but rather a flag pointing to areas of concern that should be discussed with your students.

How You Can Use It

By checking submitted papers against a vast database of academic materials, Turnitin allows instructors to:

  • Educate students about academic integrity.
  • Promote ethical research and writing.
  • Deter plagiarism.
  • Review insights into AI-generated text.


For additional training materials, please visit the Turnitin Training website.

For all other inquiries, faculty, staff, and students should call Tech Central for immediate support: 310.506.4357 (HELP).
