Using the Turnitin External Tool
The Turnitin integration has already been configured for all Alamo Colleges courses in Canvas. You DO NOT need to add it to the Apps tab in your course.
Create your assignment as usual. Under "Submission Type", select External Tool. Click on the Find button that appears underneath.
You will get a list of all external tools configured for your course. Scroll down using the inner scroll bar, and find "Turnitin LTI".
If you check the "Load in a new tab" option you will see a button under the assignment instructions.
Click Save & Publish or Save the assignment.
As the instructor, you will need to click on the "Load in a new window" button to open the Turnitin window before students can access the assignment. This action activates the assignment. This must be done for each Turnitin assignment.
When you click on the assignment, you will be taken to the Turnitin page, which has been generated based on your Canvas settings. You can add additional options by clicking on Settings, and Optional Settings.
