Turnitin has recently released an LTI integration, developed in partnership with Instructure, the makers of Canvas. This LTI integration replaces a prior Canvas integration which relied upon a Turnitin developed API.
LTI is a standard created by the IMS Global Learning Consortium which aims to establish a standard way of integrating rich learning applications, and many--if not most--integrated solutions are moving in this direction of standardization.
The new Turnitin LTI integration will give our Canvas users full access to all Turnitin functionality (Originality Check, GradeMark, and PeerMark) and, most importantly, will ensure that our Canvas users receive any new features and fixes as soon as we introduce them into the product. Moving forward, we hope that this will make it easier to administer and use Turnitin for the Canvas community.
For those wondering, it is possible to run the legacy Canvas integration and LTI integration in parallel during the transition period. When the previous legacy Canvas integration becomes unavailable, its classes and assignments will remain accessible by logging into Turnitin directly, but will not be visible in the LTI integration.
We urge you to look over the resources we have provided below, which we hope will help to answer the most common questions and address any concerns.
