The University of Otago subscribes to the plagiarism detection service, Turnitin, which is integrated into Blackboard. Your lecturer can create a Turnitin assignment in Blackboard 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.
