Interact2 – Turnitin Integration: 202260 Extended Pilot Group

22 June 2022

Following on from the three school pilot conducted in 202230,  access to the Turnitin integration in Blackboard is being increased to a larger, capped number of subjects for 202260. Supported by DLT and DIT, the use of Turnitin’s Feedback studio within Interact2 enables students and academics to complete the following workflows within a single interface:

  • Assessment submission and return
  • Grading and Feedback
  • Academic Integrity

The capped access will assist in gauging future support needs as the integration becomes more widely available in subsequent sessions.
