Turnitin upgrade & staff training

turnitinTurnitin has released a major product upgrade that will soon be available at Heriot-Watt University. The new version of the service, called Turnitin Feedback Studio, offers all the functionalities of Turnitin, but with a simplified, more intuitive interface designed for the modern classroom. Turnitin Feedback Studio will make it faster and easier than ever to promote academic integrity, provide actionable feedback, and evaluate student learning at Heriot-Watt University.

We plan to upgrade our version of Turnitin to Feedback Studio on 1st August 2017.

Once upgraded, you can expect to see a new interface when you open up a student’s paper in Turnitin. Your students will also experience this new and improved interface when viewing Similarity Reports and receiving feedback.

To get acquainted with the upgraded Turnitin Feedback Studio and prepare for a successful implementation, you can:

To support this transition and build on the use of Turnitin across HWU, a one hour online training session will be available (and recorded for later viewing).
