- Click on Add an activity or resource
- Select Turnitin Assignment 2 from the list
- Click on Add
- Fill in the CC form, including General, Assignment Part 1+, Originality Report Options, and GradeMark Options (ignore Common Module Settings and Restrict Access)
- This will create a link on your CC page, where students can go to submit papers
Using the Turnitin Website: Create an account directly in Turnitin
You need to do this FIRST
(unless you're using Turnitin via CourseConnect only -- then see above)!
In order to get started with Turnitin, you need to create an account at the Turnitin.com site.
