On 2-2-17 we had a service pack applied to our Moodle site. Part of this update is that Turnitin functionality for “old” Turnitin assignments has been restored! This is great news for those who may not have time to upgrade their assignments through the semester. However, we still strongly suggest faculty consider re-creating Turnitin Assignments using “Turnitin Assignment 2,” as support for the original plugin is likely to be discontinued in the future, though we’re not sure when. Isn’t it better to be prepared?
Go to “Add an activity or resource” and choosing “Turnitin Assignment 2.” Prompts are similar to the previous version, but one enhancement is due dates being set on the Settings screen, not a separate page.
For those interested in learning about the new integration, we’re hosting the following session through CELT:

Turnitin’s integration with Moodle was recently updated. Now that we’ve had some time to get to know it, we want to show it off and answer any questions you might have. This update introduces a much more streamlined assignment creation and editing process. There’s also better rubric management, e-raters that try to pick up technical issues, new “tutor” roles, and PeerMark online-peer-review functionality.
