Turnitin Administration and the Moodle rollover project

Turnitin assignments have been archived as part of the larger Moodle rollover and archive project.


  • Session 14/15 Turnitin Assignments in Banner courses (but not those delivered through Partnerships) were archived and moved to the Moodle Archive at
  • Turnitin assignments were deleted from 15/16 Moodle course spaces.  This prevents licensing, access, performance, and management issues arising from the re-use of expired Turnitin assignments.

Administrators/course editors should:

  • Create new Turnitin Assignments in Moodle 15/16 course spaces. These are now all available in Moodle at
  • Use the 14/15 Moodle course spaces to create Turnitin Assignments for resubmissions, at  This will consolidate all 14/15 Moodle/Turnitin activities.


  • The  Moodle-based support materials for creating and managing Turnitin assignments can be accessed directly at:
