Those interested in attending but unavailable at this time are encouraged to register to receive a link to the workshop recording after the session. This workshop will provide instructors with an overview of Turnitin and Brightspace settings and how to interpret the similarity report.

More training for Turnitin’s Originality and Feedback tools will be offered throughout the term to assist instructors wishing to use Turnitin.
