Step 1 - Installing the plagiarism plugin

The plagiarism plugin is installed in the standard Moodle way. Instructions on how to install a plugin in Moodle can be found here: http://docs.moodle.org/en/Installing_contributed_modules_or_plugins.

  1. Download the plagiarism plugin.
  2. Unzip the plugin.
  3. The unzipped file will contain a folder labeled plagiarism and inside that a folder labeled turnitin. You must copy the turnitin folder onto the Moodle server in the /plagiarism directory. 

    You may have to restart your web server service at this point.

  4. Navigate to Site Administration > Notifications and follow the on screen instructions.

    The Turnitin plugin was not developed with support for third party plugins, therefore it cannot be guaranteed to function fully in conjunction with other assessment plugins.
