Project Advance offers instructors the opportunity to use several online systems as part of their Syracuse University courses.

Each week of Summer Institute we will be offering an introduction to TurnItIn.com and Moodle. These introductory sessions are designed to introduce you to how each can be used within your SUPA course.

 

Week 1:  June 26 – June 30

Week 1 Tech Session Registration Form

Introduction to TurnItIn — Monday June 26, 5:30PM – 6:30PM
Sheraton Syracuse University (Room: Comstock C) Pizza will be provided!

This presentation will (1) provide an overview of the TurnItIn features that you can use in your Project Advance course, (2) demonstrate features you can signup for an account using the Syracuse University license, and (3) demonstrate several TurnItIn features you can make available to your students.

Turnitin, an Internet-based plagiarism prevention system, is now available for use by all SU instructors, including those offering SU courses through Project Advance. This system allows instructors to upload student work (submitted as electronic files, such as a MS Word document) into the Turnitin system and receive a report that identifies “matched text.” The instructor still must analyze the report for originality, but Turnitin does provide them with more information that can be used to make this determination. Turnitin.com references its database solely for the purpose of detecting plagiarism of such papers. SU’s Office of Academic Integrity recommends instructors inform students they are using Turnitin, and it provides a sample written statement that can be handed out to students.
