Turnitin Spring 2024 update

As many of you know, UNR moved to the Turnitin LTI 1.3 integration before the start of the spring 2024 term. Unfortunately, it has come to our attention that this new integration does not work with SpeedGrader, WebCampus’ built-in assignment viewing and markup tool. The Office of Digital Learning has worked with Turnitin to find the best path forward for Turnitin Assignment creation in WebCampus.

After weighing our options with Turnitin, we have decided to move to a more seamless assignment creation process using the Turnitin Plagiarism Review process in the regular WebCampus Assignment settings. Moving forward, this option should be more intuitive and easier to use for instructors. All new Turnitin Assignments created in Canvas should follow the Turnitin Plagiarism Review steps.

IMPORTANT: If you have already created Turnitin Assignments using the Turnitin LTI 1.3 process, and students have already submitted assignments to it, you will need to leave those assignments as they are currently setup. If you have created an assignment using the LTI 1.3, and students have not yet submitted assignments, we strongly recommend switching to the Plagiarism Review set up.

Please review the table below to determine how you should proceed:
