TurnItIn provides instructors with the tools to engage students in the writing process, provide personalized feedback, and assess student progress over time. The UW-Platteville strategy with TurnItIn is to use it as a writing development tool. Visit the TurnItIn features page to learn what features are available and how students and faculty/instructional academic staff alike can use them.

Information for Students

Are you ever worried that you’re unintentionally plagiarizing? Are you confident in your paraphrasing skills? TurnItIn can help you with these concerns. TurnItIn is a tool that is integrated into Desire2Learn and can help students and professors understand, identify, and avoid plagiarism. Each of your professors will decide which courses and assignments will use TurnItIn, and some professors may not use it at all.
