Turnitin is a plagiarism prevention tool, which is designed to help faculty members to easily evaluate the originality of student’s work by comparing their electronic documents to online sources and Turnitin-owned databases. Papers can now be accepted for checking in 30 different languages including Chinese (traditional and simplified), English and Portuguese.
All teaching staff are entitled to request a Turnitin account for use at its website: http://www.turnitin.com. Please use your UM email address to send the following data with email subject "Request of Turnitin service" to firstname.lastname@example.org to set up your Turnitin account.
We will reply to you with the login information in two working days.
* If teaching staff want the paper submission through the UMMoodle system to get the Originality Report, no need to apply for the Turnitin Account. For those, who then NOT through the UMMoodle system and intend to use Turnitin directly, please contact us to get the password.
The most widely used functions in Turnitin are the retrieval of the originality report, which is used to determine whether a student's work is original (no matching text) or unoriginal. UM users can achieve it through the UMMoodle in addition to using Turnitin directly. They can do their work using the Turnitin function without having to leave their familiar UMMoodle environment. Kindly see 'Turnitin Moodle Update' for more information.
