Turnitin is an on-line service that checks student papers for plagiarism. SDSU has recently relicensed Turnitin and integrated it with Blackboard so that papers submitted through your Blackboard site can be processed through Turnitin. ITS is hosting a free lunch event next Wednesday to introduce faculty to Turnitin. Please see below for more details.

Subject: Fwd: You're invited! Turnitin User Event @ SDSU
You may be aware that Academic Affairs has re-licensed the Turnitin tools after a 2-year hiatus. The tools are now available within Blackboard, and include, in addition to the anti-plagiarism OriginalityCheck, two tools designed to streamline and enhance writing feedback from instructor and peers: GradeMark and PeerMark. See http://universe.sdsu.edu/sdsuniverse/news.aspx?s=72703 for more information on Turnitin's return to SDSU.
