Video of Nov. 15 Refresher Tutorial

Our agent custom-made this tutorial using our own Moodle software. All the functionality you see demonstrated is available through your Moodle login and course shells, and you can use as much or as little of it as you like. As I reviewed the video, I was pleased to see how easily the software is integrated into the system we already use (the menus and options are very similar), and I think most people will find using Turnitin pretty intuitive. In working with our agent, I asked him to focus for now on the key areas of Turnitin philosophy, creating assignments, interpreting originality/similarity results, and marking papers. He also touches upon how students can use the software to improve their written work. The video is barely over half an hour long, and you’ll find much information packed into it in an accessible manner.

Turnitin Division Liaisons:

  • David Hanbury (Psych/Health Professions)
  • Marc Muneal (Arts/Humanities)

The Curriculum Committee members for the respective divisions have agreed to be points of first contact for sharing and collecting information regarding the software’s use at monthly division meetings. Adjunct faculty members should report concerns or questions to their direct supervisors. GPS and off-site faculty members may channel queries or feedback through Marietta Sanford.

As always, technology questions should be addressed to the IT Helpdesk.
