Plagiarism in the classroom

Are you a teacher? And do you want to check whether papers, essays or theses have been plagiarised from others? If so, you can use Turnitin. Turnitin compares the content of papers and theses with texts submitted previously and with public Internet sources.

How to use Turnitin

If you want to check texts for plagiarism, you have to create a ‘Turnitin assignment’ inside a Blackboard course. By doing so you will automatically create an account. Once you have an account, you can also log in via the Turnitin website. If you have any questions or if you need support in using Turnitin, please contact your ICT and education coordinator.
