Turnitin: Enhancing the student online learning experience

Queen’s University is now offering the academic tool, Turnitin campus-wide

Information Technology Services (ITS) recently championed an initiative to support academic success on campus and to enhance teaching and learning within the Queen’s community. Working together with the Centre for Teaching and Learning and the Faculty Association, ITS is pleased to present the availability of a campus-wide license for Turnitin starting in the fall of 2016. This web-based learning tool is currently being used by the Smith School of Business, the School of Kinesiology, Queen’s Economics Department and the Department of Psychology as an opt-in, pay-for arrangement.

“Turnitin offers a full array of services to improve writing and communication skills,” says Bo Wandschneider, Chief Information Officer and Associate Vice-Principal (Information Technology Services). “Any way that ITS can work with the campus to help to improve the student experience is a worthwhile endeavor.”

 


For more information about the Turnitin service coming to campus, please see the Queen’s Gazette article, “Queen’s to adopt new academic tool,” or for details on the features of the service, visit the Turnitin website.
