The Center for Writing Excellence is excited to announce the acquisition of Turnitin.com, which will now be a part of our Writing in the Disciplines program. Turnitin.com is a globally renowned company whose mission is to aid educators and students. As an instructor of Southeast Missouri State University, you have access to many of the resources that Turnitin.com offers, such as OriginalityCheck (plagiarism checker), GradeMark (a grading tool), or PeerMark (peer review).
Turnitin.com has recently gotten a lot easier for Southeast instructors to use. With the assistance of the Office for Online Learning and the Center for Scholarship in Teaching and Learning, Turnitin is now fully integrated in to Moodle. Now there are no more passwords to remember or rosters to enter, just simply add an activity! Turnitin can be found in the activities option on your class’ Moodle page. There, you can refine your use of Turnitin as you always have been able to.
While the benefits to instructors are evident, the students who have used Turnitin.com claim they value the easy-to-read instructor comments and attest they have learned critical citation rules through the originality check.
