Creating an assigment

The administrator of your LMS/VLE must configure the Turnitin LTI integration before Turnitin assignments can be created. If you have are also an administrator, visit our Step 1 - Configure your LTI integration in Turnitin | LTI.

If you are logged in as an administrator and masquerading as an instructor, you will not be able to enable Turnitin as an external tool. Please log in as an instructor to create an LTI assignment.

  1. As an instructor, locate your LMS/VLE's 'add LTI tool' functionality (this may also be referred to as an 'external tool').
  2. Once you've located this page, you may need to manually enter the URL for the LTI launch. Enter the relevant URL in the LTI launch URL field on the add LTI tool page:
  3. Once the Turnitin LTI assignment is added to the LMS course by the instructor the Turnitin assignment interface can be accessed and the assignment settings can be adjusted.
