Turnitin is an online system that checks documents for text matches against its database of papers, articles and web pages. When a piece of coursework is submitted to Turnitin, an Originality Report is generated, which highlights instances of text matching.

At NTU, Turnitin is integrated into NOW, via the use of the Dropbox; each School has its own online Turnitin policy. Each module leader will know the official position regarding Turnitin for their module and will inform students accordingly.

Turnitin: a guide for students is available via the NOW Help link, and the Learning and Teaching Team can help with any queries.
