Turnitin: Overview & Resources (Faculty and Students)

Task: Turnitin is an application that checks for originality, detects plagiarism detection and can be used as a tool to help students understand how to properly cite sources in their academic work.

Important Note:
Turnitin Feedback Studio will be discontinued after the Granite State College Spring 2023 Term.  Access to the results of activities using Turnitin Feedback Studio will end after August 6, 2023.  Faculty wishing to use Turnitin in their courses on UNH Canvas can use Turnitin Similarity. See Turnitin Similarity Instructor Guide and Turnitin Similarity Student Guide for more information.


Turnitin is integrated into Canvas using an LTI plugin.  When using Canvas documentation, be sure to select documentation related to the Canvas LTI.
