Create a Turnitin account

CIT does not create Turnitin accounts manually.

A Turnitin account is created automatically when you create a Turnitin submission folder in IVLE.

You need not log in directly to Turnitin unless there are specific features you want to use that are not available in IVLE:

  • Revision assignment
  • Reflection assignment
  • Quick Submit

Note: submission on behalf on students is not possible in Turnitin submission folders in IVLE. However, instead of going to Turnitin direct, you can:

  • set up Turnitin submission folders in IVLE,
  • change the optional settings to not allow students to view the similarity index nor the originality report, and
  • request that your students hand in their assignments in the Turnitin submission folder in IVLE.

RESET your Turnitin account password, if necessary
