Turnitin notifications explained

Turnitin offers a number of notifications for students and instructors in Moodle that, by default, are turned on.

These notifications include the following:

  • Turnitin Assignment Non-Submitter Notifications: Allows instructors to send a notification to any students who have not yet submitted to an assignment.
  • Turnitin Assignment Instructor Digital Receipt Notifications: Instructors will receive a Moodle message and email notification when one of their students submits to an assignment.
  • Turnitin Assignment Digital Receipt Notifications: Students will receive a notification to confirm their submission.
  • Turnitin Plagiarism Plugin Digital Receipt Notifications: Students will receive a notification to confirm their submission.

Notifications are delivered to the Moodle message inbox as well as the email inbox. As an administrator, you may deactivate and reactivate this feature at any time.

Note: SMTP configuration is required if you are using a version of Moodle Direct V2 prior to 2015040109. If SMTP settings are not configured whilst using this version of Moodle, students and instructors will not receive a digital receipts or submission notifications to their Moodle message inbox or their email inbox. Visit Configuring Email SMTP Settings for guidance.
