The University of Otago subscribes to the plagiarism detection service, Turnitin, which is integrated into Blackboard and Moodle. Your lecturer can create a Turnitin assignment in Blackboard/Moodle that allows you to submit your document so a Similarity Report can be generated from your work. The report can help:

  • improve your writing
  • remind you about citing your sources
  • avoid unintentionally plagiarising existing material
  • improve your academic integrity by establishing good referencing practices

See the Blackboard Helpsite for more information about submitting assignments using Turnitin on Blackboard:
