User and Turnitin Course Creation with LTI Launch

When the Turnitin Tool is configured for the LMS and an instructor user launches the Turnitin Tool the following actions will occur:

User Creation and Mapping


  • If the user’s email exists in Turnitin, the system uses the existing Turnitin user account and will join the user to institution/class if the user is not already joined
  • If a Turnitin user is not associated with that email a user will be created within Turnitin

Course and Assignment Creation


  • The LTI launch creates a course in Turnitin using the "context ID" provided, and creates the assignment for the user
  • The LMS passes the unique ID for course "context ID" and unique assignment "resource ID" when accessing Turnitin assignment after creation.
