What is it?

Turnitin, used via Moodle, is a platform for setting, receiving, marking and giving feedback on assignments. Turnitin accepts a range of file formats. For text submissions, it can be set to generate a Similarity/Originality Report. This means it will compare submitted work against a host of databases and highlight where similarities have been found in text.
