Back in March we hinted that Turnitin will have a new look and feel from late July, and this morning we switched to the new Turnitin Feedback Studio.
You will not notice any changes to the process of accessing and setting up Turnitin assignments from Moodle, but there are several improvements to the way you can provide feedback and view originality reports from within the Turnitin environment.
Here is a reminder of the new features that are now available in Turnitin Feedback Studio.
- A new layer menu will allow easy access to all the Grademark and Originality report functionality.
- All functionality will be available directly from the layer menu which allows a more integrated approach to providing feedback.
- Bold, italics, underline and web links can now be added to feedback comments.
- Comments are saved automatically when you click away from the comment box.
- The Originality percentage is clearly featured as part of the layer menu.
- Rubrics are easier to use and have a modern look and feel.
Ways to find more information on using Turnitin Feedback Studio
Turnitin have provided a short demonstration video on the features of Turnitin Feedback Studio which you may also find useful.
Additionally, we have provided a Quickstart Guide to using Turnitin Feedback Studio on our guidance site.
If you would like to try any of the features for yourself outside of your own modules, Turnitin also have a helpful demo site.
