    I'm trying to have my students upload presentations into turnitin. It's not working out, and I don't know if we're doing it wrong, or if it just won't work. What I was hoping for was the ability to give voice comments as feedback. We've tried a couple of different ways to turn these in, and having students download their presentations to their drive and then uploading them, but some of them won't upload because they are too large. So I tried having them paste in their links, and from there I can't seem to copy and paste them to open them. Help? Thanks.

      They are usually pretty good about getting back to questions, yes. I reached out to them first, and when I didn't hear anything soon enough, I was hoping other teachers might have some advice.

      Hiya have you heard of Voicethread. Great for audio comments.

      Hi, Mr. Carter. Yes, I know of VT. It is not the right option for grading this task.

    Is there a turnitin for Edmodo?

      So may be there is a way of Edmodo embedding turnitin too

      My school purchased a Turnitin account for the students. We've been doing that since the early 2000s.

      I have just read that Edmodo reached out to TurnItIn to integrate with Edmodo, but TurnItIn turned them down!!! I suggest you and everyone here write to TurnItIn to put some pressure on them.

    Happy Valentines Day from Turnitin.
    We love our Turnitin educators. We're fortunate to have such passionate people using Turnitin. Instructors that do whatever it takes to help their students become successful. Teachers that share their knowledge, share their experience, and share their passion. Educators that give, and give, and give.

      Can you love us by integrating Turnitin functions into Edmodo so I don't have to use both programs and drive myself and my students crazy? Thanks!

      I agree...we are all teaching during the day. Perhaps some early evening webcasts would be more appropriate so we can actually take advantage of them.

      Ms. Wald said Jan 14, 2014

      Agreed. I once watched most of one webcast that sort of coincided with my lunch period, which was a bit challenging, but in general my teaching schedule prevents me from watching these.

      Unfortunately there is never a particularly good time that works for everyone—especially since we typically have an international audience. After school for east coast is mid-day for the West, and bedtime in Europe. After school for the west is dinner time back east.

      Fortunately though, we do make these all recorded and available on-demand.

    Why does Turnitin show copied passages as coming from other students' papers in the database when it also is available on web sites? When reviewing student papers in GradeMark for a recent assignment, I saw several highlighted passages that were linked to student papers from schools in other states. When I googled, however, I found the same text available on web sites. It seems highly unlikely to me that my students somehow gained access to papers from students in other schools in other states, but highly likely that they found passages through web searches. It would be more helpful if I could know the web sites whence they got the texts.

      It's actually quite possible students accessed papers from other schools. There are many paper-sharing websites, unfortunately. I've caught quite a few students submitting papers they've found on line from students at other locations.

      Many matches have multiple sources (like an original news article, that is posted in part on a few different blogs, used in a Wikipedia article (which is then replicated on several mirror sites), and used by many students. The Turntin system does its best to try and present the "best match" but isn't always the original source.

      You can drill down into the sources by clicking on a match in the sidebar. That will display many additional sources that matched fully or partially andthose respective percentages are shown.

      Ms. Wald said Jan 14, 2014

      Thanks for the reply -- before I saw it, a teacher colleague showed me how to "drill down." I hadn't realized what the little arrow next to the sources would do; she also described it at "not at all obvious or intuitive." (If we are not the only two who feel that way, maybe it could be made more obvious.)
