Why has the Turnitin interface changed?

We have received confirmation from Turnitin Support that from August 2022, the current integration will no longer be supported. Turnitin have released a new version of the integration which we have implemented to retain vendor support.

What has changed?

  1. The icon to the submission link has changed from, see screenshot below showing the two icons.
  2. The interface for the submission page has changed but the process of uploading and submitting is the same.
  3. You will not receive a digital receipt via email but will have to download the receipt yourself.

Accessing and Downloading graded work submitted pre-22/23

Due to the change to the new Turnitin integration, we cannot guarantee that you will retain access to previously submitted files after December 2023.  Therefore, we are encouraging you to download and save marked/graded work from Turnitin submissions made in previous academic years to ensure you always have access to a copy of your work in the future.
