SPECIAL NOTE

Plagiarism Detection (Turnitin) can be found in the Dropbox area. Nowhere in D2L is Turnitin mentioned, however, clicking on the checkbox in the Dropbox area next to the words "Plagiarism Detection: Enable for this folder" as shown below in the graphic, will activate Turnitin.

Faculty Dropbox Instructions 

Please visit the Dropbox area for instructions on setting up the Dropbox area and plagiarism detection.

Helping Your Students Understand the Dropbox and Plagiarism Detection 

Students must use the Dropbox to turn their papers in for plagiarism detection, faculty cannot submit papers for students. Students should submit their work through the Dropbox folder that faculty create for the assignment in the Dropbox area. 

Student instructions are available at:
