Turnitin  https://www.turnitin.com/ is a cloud tool which can be used as:

  • plagiarism control
  • feedback and grading of open assignments, esseys or reports
  • peer-feedback (Peermark)

You can use TurnitIn in Blackbaord via TurnitIn Direct Assignment. See: UvA Manuals

In TurnitIn Direct Assinment in Blackboard the student has to upload the document to be checked on plagiarism. If you wish to execute a plagiarism check (upload document) yourself as a teacher or a supervisor of the student, please contact ELO-scence@uva.nl about the procedure and the necessary credentials. Check the manual about it on the Docentensite in the Datanose (link to manual on Datanose)
