New Turnitin Document Viewer Interface

19 Jan 2018

The Turnitin Originality Report interface was recently updated. The new interface offers the same functionalities and tools for checking the originality of a submission as before, but with a simplified and more intuitive interface.

Note that this update does not alter the way Turnitin integrates with the UM VLE, and it has not affected the way tutors create or update Turnitin Assignment activities, nor the way students submit their work.

A quick tour of the upgraded interface is presented the first time staff and students access a paper submission. In addition, the quick guide New Turnitin Originality Report Interface - Overview gives an overview of the new interface.
