This is one of many help and support pages that are available about the University of Nottingham's Moodle online learning environment. If you have any questions or queries concerning Moodle then contact information is at the bottom of every page.
The University subscribes to Turnitin, an online service which enables the text-matching of submitted texts against an extensive library of internet pages, journals, periodicals etc. and student essays previously submitted. It is a tool for use in preventing plagiarism. Turnitin produces an originality report which indicates the percentage of text matched, i.e. the percentage that is thought to have been copied as well as the suspected sources. Turnitin is integrated into Moodle: Turnitin assignments can be set up in any module. Staff can require that coursework is submitted via Turnitin, or can upload students' work for checking on an ad hoc basis. Students can use Turnitin at any time to check their own work (click TEST YOUR TEXT which is at the top of any bottom of the pink Navigation ("Hamburger") menu on every Moodle page).
Note that the Learning Technology Section do not support Turnitin submissions directly via turnitinuk.com.
