Turnitin LTI App: Adopting the Turnitin LTI App for Current API Integration Users



Turnitin is a plagiarism-prevention tool you can use to check student work for unoriginal content. Beginning January 1st, 2017, the legacy Turnitin API integration in Schoology will no longer be available for new users. If your school has a Turnitin license, you must configure it with the new Turnitin LTI app in your school’s Schoology Enterprise account. For this reason, Schoology highly recommends that organizations using the legacy API integration transition to the new app version of the tool.

Review the instructions below for information on how to complete this transition. Once you've completed the transition, see Using the Turnitin LTI App for more information on using Turnitin in courses.

Important Notes:
  • Users in your organization who need to access previously created content in Turnitin must do so using the same email address that was used when the account was initially set. If you have plans to change the email format for users in your organization, contact Turnitin directly for assistance.
  • Content from the legacy Turnitin API app is not transferred to the new Turnitin LTI app. We recommend making the transition at the end of the semester or school year. You may contact Turnitin for more information on accessing content on the legacy Turnitin app.
