Turnitin.com Service at Lander University

Lander University has subscribed to the Turnitin.com Plagiarism Prevention Service. Tunitin.com is an easy to use tool for faculty members to check the content of papers for unoriginal material. The Technology Learning Center provides training and information about Turnitin.com's services for faculty.

New for FALL 2012

Faculty can now access Turnitin.com directly in Blackboard.  The Turnitin.com building block was added prior to the Fall 2012 semester and is available in all Lander Blackboard courses as an assessment tool.  For more information, contact the ITS Help Desk at 864-388-8234 for assistance.

Faculty Support

Faculty members can request a Turnitin.com account by sending an e-mail to turnitin@lander.edu. Once a user profile and password have been obtained, you have the option of setting up a 30-45 minute introductory workshop during which we will walk through the process of initializing your profile, creating a class, creating an assignment, uploading a paper, and identifying the information you will need to pass along to your students if you choose to have them upload their own assignments. If you prefer, you can reference the documentation provided by Turnitin.com above to accomplish these tasks on your own.
