Plagiarism detection software.

Turnitin is plagiarism detection software that scans student work for matched text by comparing the work to a large database of student work, publications, and materials on the Internet. The Turnitin service is available through an interface built in to Cornell's Blackboard Learning Management System. 

Before you can view and grade Turnitin assignments, you need to make the Turnitin tools available in your Blackboard course Control Panel. Many Blackboard courses already show the tool, but some do not. Follow the instructions for making the tool available.

Turnitin is for instructional purposes only.
