To foster an atmosphere of integrity, faculty who plan to use Turnitin as a plagiarism detection tool are responsible for informing their students about how it will be used. This can easily be done with a note included in the course syllabus.
These two statements are examples of how the faculty can notify students that they are using Turnitin:
Faculty can determine the most effective use of Turnitin. Faculty can let students see a preview of the originality report. Rather than using this service to catch students plagiarizing, faculty can use it to help students check and correct references and citations before submitting their final versions. Faculty can have all students submit papers via Turnitin or they might choose to submit suspicious documents in the presence of the student.

For faculty who are using Moodle the easiest way to implement Turnitin is directly through their Moodle courses. No additional user names or passwords are required. Simply add a Turnitin assignment from the control panel.
Overview of Steps
If you are NOT currently using Moodle, you can still use Turnitin for your courses. The service can be accessed directly via the Turnitin.com homepage; however you will need a unique Adelphi user ID and password.
