Turnitin.com is phrase matching a service that Brock University uses for students and instructors to promote integrity and work collaboratively on written assignments.

Instructors: Getting Started

Turnitin.com is integrated into the Assignments tool in Isaak, Brock University’s Sakai-Based LMS.  When enabled, instructors and students will receive an originality report shortly after they submit a file to Sakai’s Assignments tool.

Instructors should make it clear that they intend to use Turnitin, for example in the course outline and in the description of assignments. Students should be given the option of not submitting to Turnitin. Brock University requires that students be given the option to declare that they do not want to use Turnitin in advance and submit revisions or drafts of their work in advance of the due date (or other similar accommodation). As per the faculty handbook, students with a principled objection must be offered an alternative: https://brocku.ca/university-secretariat/facultyhandbook/section3#_genIndex63


Go to turnitin.com, create your account based on the information provided on the web site and add your course based on the Course ID and password your instructor has given you already.

Turnitin also has a guide for students about how to submit a paper and provides this video:
